Having a child who loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at home means I’m pretty well versed when it comes to anything involving mutant turtle well some serious karate skills. That also means I’ve pretty much heard “mom can we go see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle: Out of the Shadows as soon as it comes out” probably about a hundred times. With the movie in theaters now, I wanted to surprise my turtle loving boy with a fun snack while we wait to see the movie.
I combined one of his favorite foods, chicken nuggets, with some cheese to create these Cheesy Ninja Nuggets. And because I’m that mom I even made honey mustard mutagen to dip them in. Not familiar with mutagen? It’s apparently what turned these ordinary turtles into ninja fighting machines.
Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce
- 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup of mustard
- 2 tbsp. of Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl until combines.
To give this recipe the green ooze color, I added a few drops of green food coloring to make it the green ooze color from the show.
For the cheesy ninja masks, I’d sliced a piece of American cheese into 6 pieces. Then I used a straw to cut out the eyes.
I gently picked up the pieces of cheese and placed them on the hot nuggets so it would melt a little. That’s it! A super easy snack that any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan will love!
They also make great party food snacks! Planning a movie release party or a Ninja Turtle birthday? Serve up these Cheesy Ninja Nuggets for the perfect party theme food.
I picked up my Tyson Chicken Nuggets from Walmart and right now if you buy two specially marked packages of Tyson®, Ball Park®, State Fair® or Jimmy Dean® items at a participating Walmart store you can get a movie ticket to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows with your family. All you have to do is snap a picture of your receipt to claim your ticket.
I even picked up a bag of Ball Park® Flame Grilled patties to make Ninja Burgers. Following the same concept with the nuggets, I just added a piece of cheese cut out like a ninja mask.
Dinner was a hit and we can’t wait until this weekend to see the movie!
