I was so excited when I was chosen for the latest #DipDipHooray mission to create a recipe using chicken nuggets, fries and ketchup for the perfect easy Family Game Night fare. Last week the little man and I went shopping at Walmart for supplies.
While I didn’t see any Dip to Play signage in the store, I was excited to learn through this campaign that we can actually use the UPC codes products we love to play games and win prizes.
…and Heinz ketchup
Today was the big day, and I decided to make loaded fries using these ingredients and a few others. I LOVE loaded fries! What made it even more perfect is that we had leftovers from our breakfast at the diner so I had bacon on hand. And you can’t have loaded fries without bacon – it was meant to be.
Loaded Chicken Nugget French Fries
12 Tyson nuggets, baked as directed and chopped into small cubes
1 bag of Ore-Ida crinkle-cut fries, baked as directed
8 oz. package shredded mexican blend cheese
2-3 slices cooked bacon, cut into small pieces
Heinz ketchup, and/or ranch dressing for dipping
Add cheese to a layer of baked fries, then the chicken and bacon as desired. Repeat. Bake in an oven-safe dish at 425 degrees for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Of course I knew Emma wouldn’t eat my loaded fries, so I made her plain ‘ol chicken nuggets and fries which was just fine with her.
We have tons of Hasbro games and tonight Emma chose Chutes and Ladders, one of my personal favorites as a kid.
The game playing was good for encouraging Emma to eat. More eating meant more turns playing. I think we might do this more often!
