It seems that our boys are becomming picky eaters especially our youngest Zian. I noticed that his appitete boosts whenever I served processed food. Though I seldom serve it on our meals (except for the classic hotdog & chicken nuggets), I don’t want my kids to endulge on unhealthy food. And that is why I am trying to expand my short recipe list in order to serve nutritious food to my family.
I discover this kid friendly recipe from an officemate whom I shared lunch with. While I was tasting her mom’s squash fillet, in my mind, I thought of my boys…perhaps they’ll like it. Of course I did not let our lunch end without asking her how her mom made her nutritious baon. I was so glad that she shared her mom’s recipe. So nice of her…
So after a week or so, I decided to try my version of it. Oh by the way, I have been doing a lot of trial & errors in the kitchen these days. This is how I learn and I hope I get my cooking skill better and better. Of course, the outcome is not always good, but for this recipe I think I did a good mixture….The boys loved it as if they are eating their all time favorite chicken nuggets.
1/4 kilo of squash
1 small carrot
1 cup ground pork
1 small garlic, minced
1/2 cup Bread crumbs

1. In a bowl, mash squash & carrot. You can either boil it then mash or use a blender for an easy mash.
2. Add ground pork, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, salt and pepper then mix thoroughly.
3. Scoop a small portion of the mixture then form it into a square shape figure.
4. In a frying pan, fry the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes or until the inside part of the mixture are cooked.
