Mini Chefs Pyjama Party Menu

Our mini chefs were extremely inspired when we created these delicious recipes with them for a pyjama party and we hope you will enjoy cooking them together.

Cheesy Tortilla hand pies

(serves 8)


½ cup cream cheese room

2½ cups grated cheddar cheese

2 cups chicken or beef mince

1 cup peas, frozen

1/2 onion, chopped

salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 8-inch flour tortillas

1/4 cup sunflower oil


1. Combine the cream cheese and cheddar cheese in a bowl. Fold in the chicken or beef, peas and onion and season the mixture with salt and pepper.

2. Cut the tortillas in half. Make one stuffed tortilla at a time. Start by rolling one half tortilla into a cone. While holding the cone in one hand, fill it with 2 tablespoons of the chicken or beef and cheese mixture. Push the filling down into the bottom of the cone, leaving space at the top of the cone. Gently squeeze the cone to slightly flatten the cone into a puffed triangle.

3. Place the stuffed tortilla triangle seam-side down on a sheet tray or cutting board. Brush each one oil.

4. Pre-heat oven to 180°C.

5. Bake the tortillas for 6 to 7 minutes until the tortillas are lightly browned and the cheese has melted.

6. Eat while still nice and hot.
