Want more fun easy recipes for kids? Here's one of our easy recipes kids can make. No matter what your child's age, they can help with some part of the preparation of this easy crepe recipe. 

Ever watched a child try to bite into an adult-size cheeseburger?

If some part of the burger gets eaten, it's usually not the huge bun, which either falls off the plate or ends up getting eaten by the family dog.

Crepes are great alternatives to buns. They're delicious and easy for little fingers to handle.

An older child can help you make the crepes themselves and cook the meatballs. A younger child will enjoy simply helping you assemble them with their favorite cheeseburger toppings.

Ingredients for 4 Mini-Cheeseburger Crepes:

  • 16 bite-size frozen meatballs
  • 4 slices of American cheese
  • 8 sandwich stacker-style dill pickles
  • Mustard and ketchup
  • 4 6-inch basic crepes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake meatballs in a single layer on a baking sheet for 15 minutes, turning once.

Meanwhile, make your crepes. If you made your crepes ahead of time, you may wrap them in foil and reheat in the same oven until warmed. This recipe calls for 4 6-inch crepes which may be made in a 8-inch crepe pan or by simply trimming down larger crepes.

Remove meatballs from pan. Trim the cheese slices into 1-inch squares (4 squares per cheese slice).

Carefully, and under supervision, let your child top each meatball with a cheese square.

Return pan to oven until cheese melts.

Now that the "hard" work is done, let the fun begin!

Lay the first crepe on a flat working surface. Layer 1-2 pickles on the bottom of the crepe and cover with 4 little "cheeseburgers." 

burgers with condiments


A child (or adult) of any age will enjoy the next part of this recipe.

Drizzle your choice of condiments over the crepe. Slaw and chili are also nice additions.

Roll up and repeat with remaining crepes. 

Serve immediately. An easy side dish would be cut-up fruit or raw veggie sticks such as carrots and celery.
