There are a lot of Chinese recipes out there that are
not only familiar but very fun to make. From egg rolls
to won tons, not only are they delicious but you can
get the entire family involved in the cooking process.
Kids love to make egg rolls and won tons and enjoy
having the freedom to put their own ingredients
A fun way to change around your typical egg roll
recipe is to let your family decide what goes into
them. You can use anything from cheddar cheese and ham
to peanut butter and jelly.
The fun part is the rolling. It's a great family
experience to sit together and create something. Even
if it doesn't turn out perfect, it's the effort that
makes it great.
Won tons are basically smaller and differently shaped
egg rolls and are a lot of fun to make too. Even a 4
year old can make a won ton so families of all ages
can do this together.
Traditionally, won tons have ground pork, onions, and
special Chinese vegetables and seasoning but just like
egg rolls, you can mix it up a little.
Some cream cheese or frosting inside and some cinnamon
and sugar can make for an interesting treat that
everyone will like.
For older kids, you can teach them to make almost
anything if they are willing. They can help chop
vegetables, learn to cook rice, or even make a stir
fry with little help.
It can be very rewarding to have your family help in
the kitchen and it might even become a hobby or career
for them one day.
