Children Would Enjoy

In the Recipe Scavenger Hunt 2, I received the following recipes for the "Children Would Enjoy" category:

Cereal Corn Snack

3 cups crispy corn puffed cereal
6 cups popcorn, popped
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion salt
2 c shoestring potatoes
1 cup french fried onions
1/8 tsp salt

Heat oven to 350 F. Mix cereal, popcorn, butter, garlic & onion salts, in an ungreased 9x13 pan. Bake 5 mins. Stir in shoestring potatoes & french-fried onions. Bake 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with salt. Cool on paper towels.

Elephant Dip

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk

Mix all together until well blended. Serve with graham crackers and apple slices.

French Toast with Bananas and Walnuts

6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
4 very ripe bananas
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsley chopped
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
8 slices egg bread
4 tablespoons butter
confectioner's sugar, for dusting
Honey, Maple Syrup, or Jam (use preferred topping)

In a large shallow bowl, using a fork, beat the eggs until lightly frothy. Stir in the milk and set aside. Peel the bananas into a small bowl and mash them with a fork. Stir in the walnuts and the nutmeg.
Spread the banana mixture over the half of the bread slices, leaving a 1/4 inch border uncovered on all edges. Top with the remaining bread slices and press down gently to seal.
Place 2 sandwiches in the egg mixture and press down gently. Turn over and let soak for a moment until evenly saturated on both sides. Repeat with the other 2 remaining sandwiches.
In a frying pan or on a griddle, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Place the sandwiches on griddle and fry until the undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining butter, flip the sandwiches with a spatula and fry until golden brown.
To serve place the toast on plates and dust with confectioners sugar. Serve with honey, maple syrup, or jam.
