The ease to manage and chew makes patties a kids-friendly food. That’s why most kids find food appealing when presented in the form of patties. Patties are suitable to be served as a light meal, during kid’s parties or even to be packed into a kid’s lunchbox. They are also great as picnic food since proper cutleries are not required for eating. I would recommend to include greens when preparing your homemade patties. Not only they come out tastier but also more nutritious for your kids as well. It’s also another fantastic trick to “sneak” veggies into your kid’s diet.
Corn-in-a-cob is among my favourite veggies that appears frequently on my grocery shopping list. It’s inexpensive and a versatile ingredient to be added for cooking. I love the extra natural sweetness and colour it brings to my dishes. Besides that, corn (or sweetcorns) is packed with wonderful nutrients like thiamin (vitamin B1), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), folate, dietary fiber, vitamin C, phosphorus and manganese. It is also rich in beta-carotene (a good source of Vitamin A) to protect your child’s body from disease.
Corn is high on fiber so it is not an ideal first puree for babies whose digestive system is still immature. However, for toddlers and older kids, it makes great finger food.
My hubby and son love eating patties and corn. So, one fine day when I was figuring how to cook my ear of corn, the thought of making patties suddenly popped up. With my personal concoction, I whipped up these chicken and corn patties. I combined minced chicken, corn and a chock-full of vegetable, added seasonings and bound them with egg and breadcrumb. Then I started to cook them batch by batch. It just took me half an hour from start to finish. They are very easy-to-make, taste delicious and satisfying to eat! Even though it was my first attempt, I had already received rave review from both my hubby and son.
Minced chicken gives the patties a soft and easy-to-chew texture for your toddler’s little teeth. The fresh corns and water chestnut provide the natural sweetness and crunchiness. If served with some dipping sauce, these homemade patties will turn up as a great super fast treat for your kids.
