A recent Halloween episode of Chopped Junior wasn’t exactly business as usual. We’ve seen some pretty outrageous mystery basket ingredients over the many seasons of Chopped and Chopped Junior, but a vile of vampire blood? That certainly was a first.
Neither the zombie scabs (jerky) nor the bloody guts (pastry dough with raspberry jam) slowed down the young contestants, who fought for the $10,000 prize and cooked their way through the spooky mystery basket ingredients.
For this week’s Chopped Junior-inspired lunchbox idea, we borrowed from the haunted, crafty theme to make turkey and cheese mummy kebabs.
