Kids Picnic Party Food!

Posted by Jennifer Porter on

If you're thinking of having a picnic party this festive season we've got a few yummy ideas that will keep both the kids and the adults happy! This would be perfect for our cricket party theme idea also!

Mini Bacon and Egg Pies

Bacon and Egg Pie is a classic kiwi picnic food, and making miniature versions makes them perfect for kids.

You will need:

  • A packet of flaky pastry sheets
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1 cup of bacon (chopped)
  • 6 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • Chutney

To make:

  1. Use a cookie cutter of drinking glass to cut your pastry sheets into circles, and use them to line 24 greased muffin tins.
  2. Beat the eggs and milk together and set aside.
  3. In the bottom of each muffin tin place a teaspoon of chutney, a teaspoon of onion, and a tablespoon of bacon.
  4. Pour your egg mixture over the top, and bake at 200*C for approximately 35 minutes, or until the egg mixture is set.


Traditional Club Sandwiches

There are no right or wrong fillings to have in a club sandwich, but it’s useful to have something in each layer which will help stick the bread together. When stacking the fillings, try to layer your coloured ingredients so that the sandwiches not only taste good, but look good as well.

You will need:

  • Thin Sliced Bread
  • Butter

Fillings of your choice. Some popular club sandwich fillings are:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Grated Cheese
  • Onion
  • Cucumber
  • Mashed Hard Boiled Egg
  • Ham or Cold Meat
  • Mayonnaise

To make:

  1. Butter all your bread, and carefully cut the crusts off every slice
  2. Lay out 1/3 of your bread slices, and place one or two fillings on each piece.
  3. Lay a second piece of bread on top of the fillings (butter side up), and put a different filling or two on top of that.
  4. Lay a third piece of bread (butter side down) on top of the second filling layer, and press down firmly to ensure the sandwich stays together.
  5. With a sharp knife, carefully cut the sandwich into three fingers, and stack them in a plastic container ready to take on your picnic. To make smaller sandwiches (but more of them), cut the sandwich from corner to corner to make four triangles.


Jelly Oranges

Jelly oranges are so quick and easy to make, and they are perfect for picnics because they are so easy to transport.

You will need:

  • 5-10 oranges according to how many people you're serving
  • 2 packets of jelly

To make:

  1. Cut oranges in half and hollow out so only the skin remains
  2. Boil the jelly and pour into the orange halves be careful not to overfill
  3. allow to set in the fridge until solid
  4. cut the jelly oranges into quarters and serve!
