When b was a bubba, he used to eat up all his veggies, no questions asked. Now he is three, he seems to have an opinion about everything 🙂 It sometimes takes a bit more encouragement to get him to eat up his greens! As we are getting in the spooky mood, I thought I’d try something a bit different for dinner. Toad in the hole is a classic favourite for mr d and b. If you want tips on making HUGE Yorkshire puddings, then look no further 🙂 However, I must admit, I cheated for these little cauldrons and used some frozen ones. Life has been manic at the mo and I’ve been flat out with work on an evening and just haven’t had as much time as I’d like to dedicate to cooking!
Anyways, whether you make the yorkies or not, the end result is the same – hoping to inspire our littles to eat up their veggies 🙂
For these Cauldrons, I used three small Yorkshire puddings and filled them with veg, as per below. Any veg will do! I sat the puddings on a bed of mashed potato.
I then topped them up with grazy and popped in the “toad” – the sausage 🙂
I used little carrot sticks to stir the cauldrons 🙂 They didn’t last long at all though:
As you can see, the little guy loved these cauldrons as a fun alternative to regular sausage, mash and veg 🙂 We couldn’t get all the sausages and broccoli bits in the cauldrons though so I just popped them around the edge.
Enjoyed this fun take on regular meals? Have you tried anything to inspire your kids to eat veggies? This “Bear Hunt” meal, based on the classic book, went down pretty well too! And if you’re looking for a fun pudding, what about a Gruffalo Crumble to finish?!
