chopped challenge

An entertaining, thinking game providing a canvas for creative culinary practice…try a spin-off of the Food Network show “Chopped” with the kids.  (I will not lie.  A bit of mental prep for parents is needed.  Try to be impervious to the mess & lay down the law requiring all players to clean-up at conclusion!)

The hubster picked four ingredients, usage of pantry items, & 30 minutes for the participants to concoct an appetizer.

  • yellow pepper
  • greek yogurt
  • italian salami
  • roasted almonds

The final plates:

A previous episode’s dessert ingredients:  bananas, graham crackers, cottage cheese & pistachios

Next time there is “nothing to eat” in the house, find four ingredients & declare a chopped challenge!
