Nerdie Foodies, it’s Dragon week here at NC headquarters. Appreciate a Dragon Day was this Tuesday on January 16th. So of course, this week’s foodie post is all about the dragons! Let’s go see what dragon nibbles and treats we have today!
Disclaimer: No dragons were harmed in these recipes nor in the creation of this post.
Dragon Tail Sandwiches
These cute flatbread sandwiches are a great lunchbox idea for the nerdlings and a good way to get those daily consumption of veggies in! Lisa L (from Our Family World) shares with us her sandwich recipe here! By all means, the sandwich fixings can all be customized to your nerdling’s favourites as well.
Not only is this salad refreshing and sweet, but it can be eaten any day during the summer months! Ahhh summer! Wendy O’Neal (from Around My Family Table) shares with us her fruit salad recipe here! And if you’ve never tried a dragon fruit, it is similar to a kiwi but not as sour. And a bonus with this fruit salad post from Wendy is that she was part of a joint blogging group collaboration. There are 4 more recipes inspired by Pete’s Dragon! Just scroll to the very bottom of the post.
What is better than a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich? How about a peanut butter and jelly cobbler? Slightly fancier than the sandwich, but totally worthy for a dragon. Mel Ayer (from Disney Family) shares with us this official Disney recipe here!
How to Train Your Dragon
Toothless Cookie Pops
How can you not find these cookie pops less than adorable? Diana (from Fiction-Food Café) shares with us her recipe and tutorial in creating these beautiful cookie pops. They really look like Toothless! Check out the recipe here!
Cookie pops are not your thing? No problem! What about something as classic as a cupcake? Michelle (from The Gracious Wife) shares with us her how-to tutorial on creating Toothless-inspired cupcakes! Super simple and easy to make with your favourite cupcake and frosting recipe! Just remember to make the frosting black in colour to match Toothless. Check out the tutorial here!
Game of Thrones
House Targaryen Dragon Eggs (Vegan)
These are no ordinary dragon eggs, these are VEGAN TRUFFLE dragon eggs. You can make these truffles a little bit more potent by adding alcohol into the truffle recipe before you add on the decorative almond scales. Aileen (from Morsels and Moonshine) shares with us her (boozy) dragon egg truffle recipe here!
Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet seems regally appropriate for a cake with dragon scales on the outside! With a bit of patience and practice, you too can create this special cake designed by Olivia (from Liv For Cake)! You can find the recipe with lots of tips from her trial and errors here!
Want something with a dragon-worthy kick to bring to lunch or even as a quick weeknight meal? Why not try these Dragon noodles by Beth (from Budget Bytes)! They’re quick and easy to make and you can switch up the protein from egg to whatever you want like shrimp and lime (recipe here), which makes this dish super versatile! Check out the Dragon noodle recipe here!
There you have it! I hope you had a wonderful Appreciate a Dragon week with us and enjoyed all the dragon nibbles!
