Three Easy, Kid-Friendly Recipes (With No Dicing!)
(page 1 of 3)
New Jersey’s kids went back to school last week. That was fun. They caught up with old friends, met their teachers, and did getting-to-know-you exercises in class. They came straight home from school because their extracurricular activities hadn’t started, and they hardly had any homework because they didn’t learn anything yet.
This week, the honeymoon’s over. Hello, homework, dance class, band practice, and Mommy-can-you-sign-me-up-for-karate-I’m-the-only-kid-who’s-not-in-it. Who has time to cook dinner on nights like these? Turns out you do, with these three easy, semi-healthy recipes—no dicing required, and a minimum of steps (you do enough multitasking)!
I got this recipe from the back of a Lipton onion soup mix box almost 10 years ago. My kids inhale them. Bonus: they’re not crumbly, so cleaning up afterward is a cinch.
- 1 lb. ground turkey (you can get the lean kind if you want to be really healthy, but they tend to come out drier)
- 1 packet Lipton onion soup mix (hence the “semi” in “semi-healthy”)
- 2 tablespoons water
- Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Spray frying pan with cooking spray.
- Shape mixture into patties and put them in the pan on medium heat, cooking each side 5-6 minutes, depending on thickness.
That’s it! Serve with sweet potato fries (just buy them frozen and pop them in the oven).
