I am organising a cubs cooking night. We have an oven and 2 rings to use. There are 4 groups so we really need 4 recipes and rotate round.

each needs to be quick (ideally 10-15 mins prep, and then a short cooking time) and simple!!

Has anyone got any good ideas? thank you!

if you only want about 15 mins prep time and short cooking.

I would think something like a stir fry/chinese cooking.

each group could do a different meal type.

Chicken Chow Mein, something like this,

Mixed Veg Stir fry, like this

Pork/Bean in black bean sauce, or something like this

.
and maybe,

chicken and broccoli.

lots of knife skills to be learnt, lots of vegetables to learn the names of and possibly new veggies to learn about. local sourcing from grocers/farmers markets small amounts of meat - making it all go a long way and cheaply.

Pancakes.

Mixed options for toppings?

For Brownies I periodically also do a garlic bread night - buy small sub rolls, slice for them, give them a bowl containing their butter/buttery spread & either fresh garlic cloves or garlic salt & with or without chopped parsley or dried herbs. Let them fill the bread & wrap in foil before adding a label with their name. 10m on 200deg.

Have also used same method for 'making' bread pizza - give them half a roll cut lengthways & let them add tomato ketchup & cheese then limit them to 3 toppings of choice - e.g. peppers, pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, pineapple etc (all pre-cut), followed by a sprinkle of italian herbs. Bake each roll in a disposable foil container - again labelled with their name - they can do this in sixes if easier, so less labelling to worry over.

One a roll now ... and what about doing filo parcels - filling of choice, sweet or savoury? Takes a bit longer in the oven though? But there's nothing funnier than 30 cubs slathered in melted butter...also the floor, and the leaders....
