Ideas for NZ finger food for school shared lunch?

chynna2, Feb 12, 9:05am
My son has a shared lunch at school at the end of the week (it's for intermediate aged kids - 11 and 12 years old).The finger food is meant to be NZ inspired!

Any quick and/or easy ideas for what he could take would be welcomed.

Umm mini Mussell fritters, those cheese rolls they make in the South Island, tiny pavlovas(meringues you buy in packets from supermarket) if you want something really easy served with cream or custard and a slice of kiwifruit on top

Or you could make pikelets and pour them into the shapes N and Z!

Vegemite & cheese toasties
lamb & mint jelly sandwiches

Ohhh I just thought of two more suggestions.Hokey Pokey Biscuits or any recipe from The Edmonds Cookbook!I have even heard of Chocolate Chip Biscuits (the ones made with condensed milk) referred to as Kiwi Biscuits.

Thanks for the ideas.I think I'll make Kiwi Biscuits as they will be easy for my son to take to school.

What about making some well-known South Island Cheese Rolls! http://aftertasteblog.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/the-southland-cheese-roll/

i'm from chch and the only time i've heard or seen of these putrid things is. once someone made them for me in melbourne (gag) and a guy in auckland talks about them. ick ick ick

They are actually delicious.

get a packet of cheese sauce (add cheese), you can add onion if you like, marg the bread, spread the cheese sauce and then roll up bread, bake until golden.

Asparagus rolls

Ha 11 & 12 yr olds aren't going to eat asparagus rolls as yummy as they may be

chynna2, Feb 13, 12:33am
LOL!I do have to agree with you on that!Maybe add add another 10 or 20 years onto their ages and they will.I love them too, but even my 45 year old hubby won't touch them haha!

Think I'll try out the cheese rolls at home for a quick weekend lunch sometime though - they sound delish.I've been to the South Island and never tried one, so I must add that to my list of foods to try!

how about a fruit and veggie platter! Dips, salsa, cheese crackers etc!mmMmm

sarahb5, Feb 13, 2:37am
Why not!Mine would - and I assume there will also be teachers/other adults present anyway

Mine wouldn't touch cheese rolls in any way, shape or form or mussel fritters as suggested as #2!

sarahb5, Feb 13, 2:40am
Kumara chips or kiwi shaped cookies - it is supposed to be NZ inspired which is why I suggested the asparagus rolls
