Kid Fun!

Everyone loves to eat, but not everyone knows how to cook.  We believe that if you know the basics of cooking and if you know your way around the kitchen, you'll not only become a great cook, but you'll love it, too!  We hope this section is one that you and the young "chefs" in your life find fun and easy to use every month!

Egg in Ham Cup

This recipe makes only one serving, but it can easily be made in larger quantities for family and friends; just place each in its own custard cup.

Ingredients you will need to make 1 serving:
  • Watkins Cooking Spray
  • 1 round slice of deli-style turkey ham (about 4 inches/10-cm across)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp/5 ml milk
  • Watkins Seasoning Salt
  • Watkins Black Pepper
  • Watkins Paprika
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F/190 C. 
  2. Lightly spray a custard cup with the cooking spray and set it aside. 
  3. Spray a small skillet with the cooking spray and place on the stove burner.  Place the ham slice in the skillet and fry it over medium heat until the edges curl and the center begins to puff.  Remove it from the heat and life the slice (with tongs) into the custard cup and press down so the slice fits into the cup.
  4. Break the egg into the center of the ham slice.  (A little may overflow into the cup, but that's okay.) 
  5. Drizzle the milk over the egg.  (Drizzle means to pour slowly in a thin stream.)
  6. Sprinkle the egg with Seasoning Salt, Pepper and Paprika, to taste.
  7. Place the custard cup on a small cookie sheet; place in the oven.
  8. Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until the egg is set, and no longer runny.  With potholders, remove the cookie sheet from the oven.
  9. Loosen the egg from the cup with a table knife and lift it onto a serving plate with a spoon.  If you want, you can eat it right out of the cup, too.


Barbecue Cups

Serve these with potato chops and dill pickles!  To make these even more healthful, substitute ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef.

Ingredients you will need to make 10 barbecue cups:
  • Watkins Recipe - BBQ CupsWatkins Cooking Spray
  • 1 tube (10 oz / 285 g) refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 tsp/10 mL Watkins Grill Seasoning
  • 1 pound/454 g ground beef
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp/15 ml brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp/15 ml Watkins Original Barbecue Sauce Concentrate
  • 3/4 cup/175 ml shredded Cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F/200 C. 
  2. Spray 10 muffin tin cups with cooking spray. 
  3. Separate the biscuit dough into 10 biscuits.  Press each biscuit into a muffin cup; set aside.
  4. In a large skillet, combine the Grill Seasoning and ground beef.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the meat is browned.  Remove the skillet from the stove and place on a hot pad. 
  5. Place a colander inside a large bowl.  Pour the ground beef into the colander so that any grease will drip off through the colander.  (Once the grease in the bottom of the bowl has cooled and hardened, scoop it out and put it into the compost or garbage can - don't let the grease run down the drain because it could clog up your pipes and it's not good for the environment.).
  6. Return the browned beef to the skillet and stir in ketchup, brown sugar and Barbecue Sauce Concentrate.
  7. Spoon the meat mixture into dough in the muffin cups, mounding slightly.
  8. Bake at 400 F/200 C for 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges of the dough are golden brown.  With a pot holder, remove the muffin tine from the oven.
  9. Carefully place the barbecue cups on a plate.  Sprinkle with cheese, then cover loosely with foil for a few minutes until the cheese melts.  Serve hot.
