Lunchbox Legends: Noodle Fritters

These are just a teensy bit moorish and if your kids aren't particularly keen on vegetables, this could be your ticket to get something into them they wouldn't normally eat.  For me, this is a great way to have variety and these freeze well.  My kids like biting into them and seeing the 'worms' (i.e. noodles) inside.  You can make them as small or as big as you like.  They are great served hot or cold.

Ingredients: (makes 12 palm-sized fritters)
2 packets chicken flavoured 2 minute noodles
1/2 carrot, grated
1/4 cup peas
1/4 cup corn
50g diced ham or bacon
1/2 small onion, diced
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup self raising flour

Soak noodles in a bowl of warm water for about 5 minutes, whilst you chop and prepare rest of ingredients.

Chop veges and ham as finely as possible.

Drain noodles and add rest of ingredients to the bowl, add the noodle seasoning and mix well with a fork.

Heat some canola oil in frypan and when boiling turn down the heat to medium and spoon in the mixture, leave to fry for about 2 minutes, the sides should go golden brown and with an egg lifter, turn over for another 1-2 minutes.

Transfer to plate with kitchen paper/paper towel to drain excess oil.

They're yummy hot or cold!
