Check Out MasterChef Jr With Blue Apron
I love Blue Apron and have tried it a few times! Awesome meals delivered to my door and super fresh! Well, besides how amazing they are they are now teaming up with a new season of the show MasterChef Junior (SQUEAL). I love cooking shows and seeing kids to it is even more entertaining! Grab your kids and check out season five that just started this week. Join Gordon, Christina and some special guests for lots of fun, exciting challenges and competitions with young home chefs.
Mushroom & Potato Pizza with Fontina Cheese, Spinach & Garlic Oil
None of us had ever had potatoes on a pizza before. My son did not even want to try it but we coaxed him. The pizza was sensational! Definitely full of flavor. I think the seasons and unique toppings gave it extra texture and depth to whole new level of pizza.
Ms K. cutting up the mushrooms and other veggies. Mushrooms on the left and spinach leaves on the right… YES, these are going on a pizza. Shortcut to roll out the dough. Add the Sauce, Tomatoes, Mushrooms…
Spinach and Cheese is next…Now Ready For The Oven
All done! We cooked it a tiny bit too long (opps, didn’t set the timer) but it was still delicious and I had seconds.
Spiced Beef & Pickled Onion Tortas with Cara Cara Orange, Radish & Romaine Salad
These were easy to make but the very last step, toasting the bread in the pan, didn’t work. I think we overstuffed the bread and it was hard to keep everything from falling out. We have one pestcaterian in our family so we made three with the spiced beef and a fourth with a salmon patty. I’d never had orange slices in a salad before but it was a nice, refreshing twist that was easy.
Check out what we received and my person Junior Chef helped me create. We received two meals to create at home. Both took 10-15 minutes to prep, 25-35 minutes to cook and had a serving size of four. We made both of them, so we can try both, and had leftovers for the next day. The recipes did require for us to read them all the way through first to completely understand the steps but were easy to make.
Toasted delicious bread. onions boiled with vinegar, sugar, water and a pinch of salt than drained. After they cooled they were added with lettuce and seasoned and cooked spicy beef to the bread and cheese was added on the other side.
Sliced beef with seasoning mixed in.
Finished sandwich. Viola! Delicious side view of the sandwich. The salad was a perfect pairing!
Having my daughter help with the whole thing made the meal making a lot quicker and we enjoyed chatting while we cooked. I think it is important to get kids in the kitchen to help with meals (and clean up) so that they understand the ingredients and where they come from and also appreciate the food more. Blue Apron meals can be ordered online and delivered to your door. Lots of meal choices and options with diet, size of family, frequency of delivery, etc.
Now we can sit down and get into season five of MasterChef Junior and cheer the teams on while they create fantastic dishes.
