More About This Recipe

  • Bread as art? As a playtime activity? As a cute little animal? Round up the kids cuz it's time to play with bread! Bread's not one of those foods that you have to trick your kids into eating, like broccoli or Brussel sprouts. On the whole, I would say that most kids love bread -- but that doesn't mean you still can't have a little fun with it! At one of our favorite Italian restaurants, each child is given a small plate of bread dough to mold and design into any shape they want while waiting for dinner. After they've finished, the waiter takes their creation back to the kitchen to bake. My kids love it, even though half the time all they can muster up is a misshaped ball or some other unrecognizable object. Apparently they inherited my lack of art skills. They still love eating their art project. So if you're creatively challenged like me, here is an easy and quick idea to transform ordinary bread dough into a work of art. These cute little Piggy Buns could not be simpler. Watch as these little piggies go "wee, wee, wee...all the way home" to your kids’ stomachs.
