We have been asked to take part in the Tots100 & Green Giant Minion challenge, and as Minions are everywhere at the moment this seemed the perfect opportunity to get creative in the kitchen. Our challenge was to create something incorporating sweet corn that was fun, and of course minion related.
The minions film is now out at cinemas across the country and we went to see it last week so have been inspired to make some Green Giant sweet corn Minion mini omelettes. The ingredients are simple and something most people will have in their cupboards, so our minion omelette would make an easy mid week meal.
To make 2 mini minions you will need 2 eggs, one tin of sweet corn and a splash of milk. We used the peel from cucumber with some peas to decorate.
We whisked up the whole eggs with a splash of milk. Drain and rinse the sweet corn. Heat up a mini frying pan, or if you don’t have one a chefs ring in a larger pan would work fine. Then add half of the mixture to the pan, and sprinkle a handful of sweet corn into the omelette mixture. cook until the eggs have gone solid and flip to brown the second side. Once cooked pop on a plate ready to decorate.
For decoration we used thin peelings of cucumber, or you could use bacon strips, olives or peppers to decorate the minions cheeky faces. we cut two long strips for the sides of the minions goggles, then used a small slices of cucumber for the eyes with a pea in the middle. We cut out small pieces for mouths and you could make tufts of hair too. Now you have your very own Bob, Stuart and Dave creations.
We hope you will have a go at making your own fun minion food creations, if you have been inspired or would like to look at some of the other fun Minion foods then why not check out the #greengiantminions on twitter and instagram.
