** My son NEVER eats anything new, but he now loves these turkey burgers since I started calling them Krabby Patties!! Thanks Sponge Bob:-)

Enjoy this free weekly meal plan full of kid friendly recipes!

These easy turkey burgers are full of flavor and even picky kids love them!

  • 1 package ground turkey
  • 2 rounded tablespoons horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grill seasonings
  • olive oil
  • Buns, Lettuce & Tomato


  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together meat, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, cheese and grill seasoning. Form 4 patties or 2 and several small ones for kids and drizzle them with olive oil. Cook the burgers for 5 to 6 minutes each side.
  3. Cut the buns with a round cookie cutter to make small buns. Add burgers to buns!

Sides: Oven Baked Fries and corn on the cob


Tortilla Pizzas

Tortilla Pizza - Kid Friendly Recipes. Free Weekly Meal Plans

This week I’m going to let my kids make their own pizzas, but with whole wheat tortillas instead of pizza dough. We’ll see if they like this! ha.

  • whole wheat tortillas
  • 4 table spoons of Pizza or Marinara Sauce
  • toppings of your choice (I’m giving my kids these choices: broccoli, pineapple and mini pepperoni)
  • 1-2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Handful of chopped Fresh Basil (dried Basil will do if you don’t have fresh)


Place tortilla on a baking sheet covered with foil. Add all ingredients on the tortillas to your liking, top with basil, then bake for about 10 minutes at 350° or until cheese is bubbly.

**Here is my trick… I like to chop the toppings really small, then cover them with a little more cheese, to basically hide the toppings! My kids usually eat it when they think it’s just cheese pizza:-) (well… at least ONE kid does!)


Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole

This is one of my all time favorite recipes! I’ve been making it since high school.

  • 3 chicken breasts cooked in water and shredded
  • 2 cups cooked brown minute rice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 can 98% Fat Free cream of mushroom soup
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese  (I used mozzarella in this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup of light sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped fresh broccoli (frozen will work also)
  • 1 spoonful butter
  • 1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Pigs in a Blanket

This is basically your typical pigs in a blanket, but with puff pastry. Such an easy idea and always a hit with kids!

Wrap your hotdogs in a puff pastry sheet, then slice into bite sized pieces. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

Side:  Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

Slice 3 sweet potatoes very thin, toss with 2 table spoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of paprika and salt to taste.

Bake at 425° for 30 minutes until brown and crispy. Make sure to turn them over so they are crispy all around.


Mini BBQ Beef Pies


  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1-2 cups of BBQ Sauce (use as much as you like)
  • 1/2 of a large red pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup of chopped sweet potatoes (fresh or canned)
  • 1 ear of corn
  • 2 1/4 cups of Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup of Milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  1. I like reading through a post that can make people think. Also, many thanks for allowing me to comment!

  2. I’ll have to get my wife to try some of these recipes, I think my kids would like it.

    About the printable grocery lists, my wife uses http://www.dinnerbeat.com to autocreate her grocery lists. The site lets her create meal plans quickly from her recipes (it even has an autoplanner) and then print her grocery list which she hands to me since we have two little ones. The best part of the site is that it’s free.

  3. Am I missing it? I really liked the printable grocery list on the previous menu. Do you not do those each time? I really, really liked it and found it very helpful!!! =)

    Thanks for all your work,


    I didn’t have time to make the printable grocery list this time. Hopefully next week:-) -Amy

  4. I LOVE the idea of a Kid-friendly meal plan. Please, please, PLEASE make this a regular feature 🙂


  5. I think the kids are going to enjoy every day, except for Wednesday, all the other recipes look delicious, this one looks different. Plus there are lots of kids out there who hate broccoli. Hmmm.

    PS: Check the 600+ broccoli recipes I have published. I’m a big fan of broccoli myself.

  6. I am so EXCITED about this menu plan!
    It may sound silly to be “stoked” about kid food, but I know my kids will love everything.

    I’ve been trying to be better at menu planning for the week. I’m usually a “4pm panic planner”, but when I have some sort of a plan, everything goes so much smoother, (surprising, huh?)

    I’m new to your blog, about a week or so. It is wonderful and such a creative resource.

    Thank you!
