The pressed picnic sandwich and the toaster pita pocket recipes by BBC GoodFood are two recipes that children can make. However, you must help them with steps that include cutting or heating to ensure their safety. As kitchens include items that may harm children, make sure to oversee the whole process.
For the pressed picnic sandwich, first slice a long ciabatta loaf in half, and heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Put the loaf halves on a large baking tray with the crust sides down, and drizzle a little olive oil. Put the bread in the oven for just a few minutes until they turn golden. Whisk 3 teaspoons of olive oil, 1 one teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, 2 chopped garlic gloves and 1 teaspoon of mustard. Put half of the dressing on the bottom half of the bread.
In layers, put 2 handfuls of baby spinach, 8 marinated artichoke hearts, a few slices of pepper, 8 slices of prosciutto and a handful of basil on top of the bottom half of the leaf. Then, slice half of a red onion, and put it on top of the layers. Add the remaining half of the dressing, put the other half of the bread on top, and press down to squash all layers.
To make toaster pita pockets, put a mini pita bread into the toaster until it's puffed but not crisp. Mix 1 teaspoon of soft cheese and 1 teaspoon of grated cheddar, slice an opening on one end of the bread, and put the cheese mixture in. Add fillings according to your taste, and toast the bread for two minutes. Some filling options include: ham, tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers and tuna.
