Snacks

Apple Protein Snacks

This is a fun and nutritious snack for kids to eat as they walk around a park or any place of interest. Make sure you always have water and napkins with you!

Core your favorite type of apple.

Rinse the apple in 1 cup water, mixed with the juice of 1 lemon or 1 tsp. of lemon juice concentrate. (This prevents the apple from browning.)

Drain the apple(s) on a paper towel until dry.

Make a mixture of your favorite peanut butter, raisins or other small fruit (cranberries, nuts, or cranraisins).

Fill the center of each apple until full at both ends.

Walkaround and enjoy a tasty and healthy snack that will give you energy for hours.



Ham Party Sandwiches


This is a great recipe for when you want to take something a little different to a party or picnic. This is an easy-to-make-and-take dish that is a big hit at a gathering.

1 lb. Boiled Ham, thinly sliced
1/3 lb. Swiss Cheese, whole or shredded
1 stick (1/2 cup) Butter or margarine
3 Tbs. Mustard
3 Tbs. Worcestershire
3 Tbs. Poppy Seeds
1 medium Onion, chopped
3 packages Pastry Rolls

Mix and combine over medium heat the butter, mustard, poppy seeds, Worcestershire and onion.

Split the rolls.

Spread half the mixture inside the split rolls.

Layer with a slice of cheese and a slice of ham.

Spread the remaining mixture on top of the ham and cheese.

Wrap the package in foil and bake 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees.


These sandwiches can be assembled ahead of time, frozen, and baked when you are ready. Just add 10 minutes to the baking time.



Mini Pizzas

This recipe was created by a mother and her two children out of a need to fill a "boring" summer afternoon.

The recipe calls for Chili sauce. This is not a mistake and will not make the pizza have a Mexican taste. The reason for the chili sauce instead of pizza sauce is the fact that the pizza sauce is too thick with the other ingredients for the biscuits to bake properly.

We hope you and your children/grandchildren enjoy this time and kid tested recipe.

1 large can "flaky" Biscuits
1/4 lb. Cheddar Cheese
Chili Sauce, any jar brand you prefer
Garlic Salt
Oregano
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Pepperoni

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Separate the layers of each biscuit to make 24 rounds and place on a cookie sheet. (Follow directions on biscuit can regarding greasing of cookie sheet.)

Cut cheese into slices. Press a slice of cheese into the center of each round.

Top each with 1 tsp. of chili sauce. Sprinkle each with garlic salt, oregano and grated parmesan cheese. Top each with a slice of pepperoni.

Bake until the bottom of pizza is brown, 7-10 minutes. Times vary based on your oven.

Let cool 2-3 minutes before trying to enjoy.
