Fake Pizza

After a sumptuous lunch (as compared to a normal weekday) yesterday, it's sandwich for lunch just now. I had tuna sandwich while XY had egg sandwich. She just doesn't get tired of eggs. I think she wouldn't mind having eggs everyday.

I decided to try the easy-to-prepare snack which Jacss made. The recipe from her site :
1. Spread some tomato sauce onto the cracker.
2. Put some tuna and cheese on top.
3. Bake in the oven for about 2 minutes. (I set mine to 150ÂșC.)

~ the outcome ~

The kids were very excited to see the crackers. Well, their mommy is not very creative with food so when they see something different from their usual food, sure excited loh. CE didn't want his rice anymore. So I gave him one so that he'll go back and sit at his table. Look at him licking the tuna and cheese. I think this is the first time he's eating tuna. Hope he doesn't get any allergies later.

~ See his Rudolph nose? He just got bitten by a mosquito ~

I later asked XY if she liked the crackers. She said "hao3 chi1" (delicious) because "it has a cheesy taste and very crunchy." It's really tasty, something like crunchy crust seafood pizza (yeah, right!). But I can't take too many pieces coz it feels very dry and heaty.

Sometimes I make these for my kids too (without baking) but I think the baking makes the crackers more heaty. In fact, they taste just as good minus the baking. You can also put some Japanese cucumbers on top to reduce the heatiness. My kids love cucumbers.

Hi Slavemom, food made by a mother for her children whether creative or none is always best, as its made with love.
There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of making or cooking dinner for someone she loves.

My wife weekdays cooks something simple, but I will still polish off....hey! I'm 6'1" you know and 196 pounds, still not fat or pot belly...ha ha...will clear two plates of rice and whatever she makes.
Weekends she will cook lovely Nonya or Malay style dishes she learned from her friends old days...makan sampai ta'boleh jalan, arhaaa ha ha.
You keep well and have a wonderful weekend...your kid looks so cute la! Love his hair, the centre parting on his forehead, haha.
Don't cut his hair short, keep it longer abit...he looks good. Lee.

Heaty! How cute! Well, they sound super yummy (: And what an adorable picture!

jacss said...

hey...so fast u tried it edi... glad that yr kids like them. guess if it's once in a while snack shouldn't be that damaging... :)!!
d cracker by itself is already chrispy so i bet without baking is equally good!

You know, U.Lee is right. Food made by the mother is always the best cos it's made with love.

Wen, if don't bake oso nice. But if want melted cheese, maybe gotta melt separately kua.

Sue, I've tried with white bread. Vy nice too!

Shireen, yes, w/o baking is better. When we hv sandwich, usually we'll eat with Jap cucumber or organic green vege.

Unc Lee, Mrs Lee will nvr tire of cooking for u, as it's vy much appreciated.

Debbie, thx!

Jac, yup, equally good. Oni thing is how to hv melted cheese w/o baking. hmmmm...

Juana, in ur case (w/o cheese), no need to bake loh if u're using crackers. Crispy enuff.

Sasha, yup, just as nice.

Anggie, Pizza Hut going to 'chap lup' liao. LOL

Joanne, we adults know that, but young picky eaters don't. hehehe

June, hope the big kid will like it. :D

Tracy said...

Wah! U beat me to dat. When I read Jacss post about this, I wanted to try but found no cheese *ish*. Must be delicious by looking at CE licking at the biscuit or rather the cheese (heehee).
