Chopped Junior-Inspired Lunchboxes: Caesar Salad with Pepperoni Pizza Croutons
Why should adults have all the fun? Thanks to the new show Chopped Junior, kids now also have the opportunity to get their hands on some infamous mystery baskets. And we were happy to see that the ingredients are just as tricky as those in the grownups' baskets: items like cotton candy cookies, pepperoni pizza and candied sardines!
Let the fun continue with a Chopped Junior-inspired school lunch salad that any kid (or adult) can make:
Cut leftover pepperoni pizza or mini pizza bagels into small chunks and toss them into a Caesar salad (pack the dressing separately). It’s super-easy — and besides, who doesn’t love cold pizza?
Tune in next Tuesday at 8|7 c to see which contestant wins $10,000. And keep coming back every Wednesday for a new recipe idea that will set your lunchbox apart from the rest, Chopped Junior style.
