Minion Tuna and Sweetcorn Bites #Greengiantminions

tuna and sweetcorn minions

Hands up who is excited by the upcoming release of the Minions movie on 26th June? *Sticks both hands in air whilst shouting me, me me!* Cough cough I mean my boys are really looking forward to it. Tots 100 and Green Giant Sweetcorn have challenged bloggers to come up with some minion themed food and I was more than happy to take on the challenge.

These tuna and sweetcorn bites are easy to make and you can get your children making the faces.

You will need:

2 large baking potatoes
1 tube of cream cheese (I used cheese and chive Primula)
A cup of grated cheese
A tin of tuna
1 tin of Green Giant sweetcorn
Radishes
Black olives

Start by boiling your potatoes in some salted water. When cooked mash them with the cream cheese.

Add the grated cheese, tuna and Green Giant sweetcorn.

Take a ball of the mixture and lightly fry it for a minute on each side. Put it on the plate and press the sides to make it a minion shape.

Now for making the face. Here you just need some thinly sliced radish and some sliced black olives. Arrange them on the tuna and sweetcorn bite to make your favourite minion.

You might like to serve it with a baked bean cloud and some broccoli trees.

Minion mad middle man had a go at making his. He was very pleased with the outcome and enjoyed eating his minion.

For dessert it has to be bananas!
