I’m so excited about May; especially, the warmer weather, beautiful flowers starting to bloom & MOTHER’s DAY!
This month we celebrated Mother’s Day at the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club with quick & easy recipes the kids can make to share with mom and/or grandma.
Although they were all designed as part of our Mother’s Day Celebration this year, they are equally delicious to make all summer long!
Jenna joined me to kick off our celebration with breakfast in bed for mom. Together we whisked, dipped & flipped until we made a super yummy Honey French Toast Flowers with a Blueberry Topping to serve. Jenna LOVES cooking & is a HUGE help in the kitchen at her house & was so much fun to have her at the counters of the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club. Make sure to take a peek at the video Jenna & I created & the delicious recipe we made below :)…
5 slices of honey wheat bread
2 Price Chopper eggs, large
1/8 cup low-fat Price Chopper milk
1 ½ teaspoons Price Chopper cinnamon
2 teaspoons Price Chopper vanilla extract
3 tablespoons Price Chopper honey
Price Chopper Non-stick cooking spray
Flower (scalloped) shaped fondant cutters
Cut flower shapes out of the bread using the large & medium fondant cutters (see below).
Whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract & honey. Dip each flower of bread into the mixture one at a time, flipping it so that the bread is complete covered with the egg wash.
Cook the French toast flowers over medium to low heat on a griddle coated with non-stick cooking spray until both sides are golden brown & cooked on the inside.
Fondant Cutters: These can be purchased at local craft stores and are under $5 with a coupon. They come with three sizes included in the package. You can cut two large and two medium flowers out of each slice of bread with the fondant cutters. If you are unable to find fondant cutters you can use cookie cutters as well.
