With all the cooking we’ve been doing as part of our cooking with kids A to Z, my kids are asking to cook more food and making healthy snacks that they will enjoy is part of this. We love pizza’s, but they take a time to make so following the Italian influence and one of my favourite appetizers, an Easy Bruschetta Recipe with them mixing and matching their own ingredients.
Making Easy Bruschettas with kids
First we cut up the bread together into thick slices that the kids would enjoy eating. Then we tore up the mozzarella into chunks and peeled the onion.
The kids then set about chopping the ingredients. Soft fruit like tomatoes can be more tricky for kids to chop than some of the harder fruit so we helped T first off showing her to start with the point of the knife into the tomato and then move it down chopping the tomato.
T then finished chopping the tomatoes herself and we helped her with the other ingredients.
With everything in dishes, she set about making up her bruschettas adding what she wanted to the as did her friends and ourselves.
We then put them on a cookie sheet and under the grill until the cheese melted on the bruschettas with cheese.
