I thought for certain the kids would go crazy with the ingredients but turns out they used very little and the burgers were really good! As you can see from the photos, Gabe was totally focused on the timer sitting on the scale in front of him. I don't think he took his eyes off the timer for more than a few seconds. Thankfully, Rylee was near the sink and could wash her hands at least 20 times while attempting her burgers :).
Thinking I may try this 'event' the next time we have pasta and let the kids create their own sauce...hmmm...any other ideas for a 'cook-off'?
