Les Petits Chefs – Food Revolution Week 10

Liam spotted it as he was flipping through the Food Revolution Cookbook a few weeks ago.

“Can we make “a cracking burger” Mademoiselle?” was the plea. Why of course Liam, if something looks good to you, I am happy to help you make it!  The boys got chopping and prepping and got their mise en place organised (with some – ahem – gently coaxing from yours truly!).  We added portobello mushrooms in place of the red onions the recipe calls for for an added nutritional boost:

Then we got cooking:

And packed our Tupperware with goodies to take home:

Doesn’t this look like an awesome burger slider?  I opted for making mini burgers because I am totally in love with the mini burger buns from President’s Choice – and we all know how much I love the President, right?

Another fabulous recipe from Mr Oliver – 40 minutes start to finish (including some “breaks”!).  Love that the boys saw how easy it is to make real burgers from scratch!  Quote of the week comes from Oliver and Charles (combined): “Oh Em Gee – Outstanding!!!” 😀

  1. I only found your blog recently (Twitter is a wonderful thing!) and I have to say I love these Les Petits Chefs posts! I don’t think enough kids are learning the joys of cooking, so bravo for showing them the light. I would love to do something like this myself when I’m back in the States. I love teaching, and I love food, what can be better?

  2. Great “slider”/burger recipe. My Mom used to use very similar ingredients when she made burgers/meat loaf, but sub’d crushed bran/grape nut flakes for crackers. Adds a wonderful, nutty flavor & more fiber/nutritional value. 🙂

  3. The burgers/sliders taste as good as they look! The PC mini-burger buns were the perfect compliments to the burgers. We warmed up the ensemble with a quick steam and the “buns” were refreshed but not at all soggy.

    Mardi, thank you for showing the boys that home cooking is a delicious and realistic alternative to dining out. We have looked forward to Tuesday night every week since the first week of Les Petits Chefs. We will need to adjust our dinner menu when Les Petits Chefs takes a break for the summer. break.

    • Teresa – you know how much fun I have with the boys every week – quite frankly, I don’t know what I will do when Petits Chefs is over in 2 weeks!!! I hope the boys continue to practice in the kitchen over the summer!

  4. This are killer! Love all the fresh veggies in there.. sounds like a fantastic kick off to summer dish

  5. I love what happens when I ask my dinner to decide what we will have for dinner. She usually makes good choices, but they revolve around chicken, tomatoes and potatoes. My girls are still a bit young but they love helping in the kitchen and the best mixers and putting stuff in girls I know!
