The center of the holidays, besides family and celebrating, is the table overflowing with scrumptious treats and eats. But it's hard to enjoy dinner when the kiddie table is a chorus of complaints. This year, transform adult dinner dishes into delicious easy-to-hold and easy-to-eat treats. What kid can complain while digging into a cheesy turkey pizza or enjoying their very own tiny dulce de leche laced tart? Here, 6 kid approved dishes for the tiny holiday meal!
Start the pint size meal with an appetizer with big flavor: cheesy serrano potato cakes. Mix up some of the adults only mash with pepper jack cheese, a bit of flavor, egg, salt, and pepper, then form the mix into cakes and fry until crisp and golden brown. This dish is cute, cheesy, and easy to pick up with tiny hands!
Reserve a bit of the main table stuffing and turn it into tiny, kid friendly corn muffins! Mix the stuffing with a bit of cheese, corn meal, milk, eggs, and butter and bake them off in muffin tins (tiny muffin tins would be even better!). Then let the kiddos grab and go as they inevitably step away from the table to play.
This recipe for pumpkin dulce de leche tarts combines two classic flavors into cute individual tarts. A simple and coconut laced crust is layered with a pumpkin pie filling swirled with dulce de leche. These will make a great addition to any holiday table.
