Hack my bare cupboard.

Help! I get paid on Friday. Meantime I need something for my toddler to munch on.

I have meat, so hubby and I are covered. I need something I can make my picky toddler that is nutrient dense and satisfying. Crunchy is a plus.

What I have: Chicken and beef Lots of shredded coconut Maybe a dozen eggs Lots of honey. A little shredded cheese, pistachios, frozen blueberries and strawberries. Butter, olive oil A little coconut oil

I have some bread flour and I'm ok with using it in small amounts. Gluten only constipates her.

Canned tomatoes, fresh shallots, can of garbanzos, wee bit of bacon bits, frozen spinach, frozen mixed veggies, and lots of honey.

I have all the normal spices and then a few.

Thanks for the help! My daughter and my peace of mind appreciate it.

Okay, so I am way too lazy to make pate a choux right now, but it inspired some bacon and cheese waffles that she's gobbling down! I made it with a really low flour ratio, don't worry. Thanks!

She holds food just fine. She just refuses to eat it. I don't honestly believe she'd touch a deviled egg.

My son loves lightly scrambled yolks and butter. Honestly it's like 50/50 butter to yolk. Otherwise, yolks make a lovely hollandaise.

This may be a winner. What would you do with the leftover yolks? Pudding?

You don't know my toddler. I am also looking to make these eggs last all week.

Hahaha! I'm normally a great speller! I knew it looked funny but was too hungry to care.

And if you cut the quiche (or frittata) into small bites, it would be great toddler-snacking fare.

I think you mean "meringue"—just so the poster can get good search results if she looks up a recipe.

Cupboard. That hacks the title correctly, at least. Sorry, I'll let the better cooks chime in about hacking your problem.

Cheese crackers- just make small mounds of grated cheese on a cookie tray and bake until they are gently browned. When they cool they are like crisp cheese crackers.

A quiche would be a more meal-like recipe. Eggs, cheese, spinach for example. Maybe make some humous with the garbanzos to dip with cheese crisps.

Two options that are imperfectly paleo but still relatively nutritious:

If you don't mind using a little bit of flour (1/2 cup total, so really very little per puff), try gougeres: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2009/01/gougeres-french-cheese-puffs/ They'd be great with shallots, shredded cheese, & maybe an extra egg.

You can also roast those chickpeas???drain and rinse and dry them, coat liberally with fat (olive oil is great, coconut oil might work as well) and spices and salt, and roast at 450 until they're blistered and crunchy.

Meringue cookies are good too.

My 18 month old loves frozen blueberries, and she loves strawberries mixed with coconut flakes. You might be able to do a fruit and coconut mix.

Deviled eggs with bacon, shallot, and pistachios. Since you didn't specify that you have mayo, maybe you want to whip some butter and a small amount of lemon juice or vinegar into it, then top with paprika.

If she's not quite at the age for handheld food yet, chop up the whites and make egg salad instead!
