So they gave me a new “job” at church… I’m the new cubmaster and tonight was our first pack meeting… I feel very intimidated by this new job as I know NOTHING about scouts….I have alot to learn… tonight I was just in charge of the food… since I don’t know much about scouts I figured I’d focus on what I do “know” which is food (I enjoy eating it quite a bit :-))…
With April fools coming up I thought these mini “burgers” would be a cute idea. I started with an idea on familyfun.com but didn’t want to bake the cookies…so here is how I did it..
Buns: Sandies cookies (that’s the name brand)
Meat : I can’t remember *eek* and I threw away the package, but they are chocolate cookies that look like thin mints.. I think they are keebler brand, they come in peanut butter, fudge or mint. I did the fudge because I know kids don’t always like mint.
Ketchup & Mustard: just tinted frosting applied with a pastry bag to make it go faster
Lettuce: flake coconut dyed green (bake it at 200 for 10-15 min to make the food color dry on the coconut)
To get the sesame seed to stick, mix 1 egg beaten with 1 T of water… whisk. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg wash on the bun tops sprinkle with sesame seeds… bake at 300 until dry. (about 10 min)
Just assemble! (put in the fridge for a 1/2 hr afterwards to get them to “set”)
I was thinking you could also make “fries” but didn’t have the time/budget for that. Just buy pound cake (a good firm pound cake) cut into shapes like fries. Put under the broiler a few seconds to brown on each side. Then wrap them up in wax paper like at restaurants. Serve with strawberry jelly in a fry sauce cup! (or you could do refrigerated breadsticks cut like fries and sprinkled with sugar)
