2 Great Thanksgiving Treats for Your Kids
Thanksgiving is perhaps the perfect time to treat our kids. In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy for us to ignore their needs for too long. So, why not make up for everything by offering a great Thanksgiving treat?
Wild Turkey Nuggets
If your kids are a fan of chicken nuggets, they are sure to enjoy this dish as well. The recipe requires only a few items such as the turkey, 2 oz. of salad dressing and ranch seasoning mix, and ½ cup of plain bread crumbs. Begin by cutting 1/2 breast of wild turkey meat into small pieces. Then, mix the turkey with ranch seasoning and bread crumbs. Gel them all together.
Prepare the pan for cooking by pouring some vegetable oil in them. Heat it and start placing the nuggets in the pan. Wait for a minute or two and start flipping the sides so that the nuggets are evenly cooked from both the sides. Finally, place them on a paper towel so they can cool and drain all the oil. Let your kids enjoy them with ranch dipping sauce.
Sweet Potato Biscuits
You can make this dish ahead of the holidays as well and let it freeze for later consumption. The sweet potato biscuits can prove to be a great treat not only for your kids but also your guests. You can simply pop them out of the freezer and get them in the oven to be served to everyone. They are sure to satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
Let’s prep up first and get to the ingredients. You will need two cups of flour, 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter, ¾ cup of chilled sweet potato puree, 1/3 cup of buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Adding some warm spices can further contribute to the taste so you can consider 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. With the ingredients ready, let’s get to the making of the dish.
Mix all the dry ingredients with the flour in a large bowl. Add 6 tablespoons of butter to the mixture. Now, we are ready to add all the dry ingredients. Take a separate bowl and add ¾ cup chilled sweet potato puree and 1/3 cup of buttermilk and mix them together. Once done, gel both the wet and dry ingredients and mix them well until they are combined. Don’t over mix them.
Your dough will be ready now. Place it on a floured surface and work it till it’s as thick as a one-inch disk. Cut little rounds off the dough with a 2-inch pastry cutter. Once the dough pieces are ready, apply a little bit of melted butter on them, and place them in a preheated oven at 425 degrees. Let them bake for around 20 to 25 minutes. Don’t forget to rotate it halfway through the baking. There, you go. You have delicious holiday meal for your kids.
