Easy recipes for teens

So we're in for the long haul. The extra long June holidays are here. So if you have bored teens on your hansd and are looking for some quick and easy recipes for them to try out, look no further.

Mince and macaroni

Macaroni is always a winner and easy to make. Your teen should have no problem with this and can even make supper for the whole family.

Posh hotdogs

This twist on the classic hotdog is so fun! Teens are always trying new things and want to be a little more sophisticated. Plus they're really yummy!

Pita pizzas

These pita pizzas are even easier than normal pizzas. Teenagers would like toppings like feta, salami and bacon. Another mince recipe. But mince really isn't that hard to mess up so it's perfect for first time cooks. The butternut in this recipe gives it a nice winter feel. You can find rotis in the freezer section of your supermarket, and they just need to fry them quickly.

Chocolate cupcakes

Everyone loves cupcakes. And everyone loves chocolate. The perfect recipe for a bored, rainy afternoon.

Chocolate Weetbix squares

We often look for things in our pantry to make yummy things with. These Weetbix snacks are unconventional but so delicious.

Moreish biscuits

These are so easy, even school kids could help out - there're only 3 ingredients!
