Movie Night – Minions
Last week, my son’s favorite movie from the summer came to Blu-Ray/DVD. I’m sure you can tell that movie is Minions © 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved. Marvel Boy has Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 on DVD and was really looking forward to getting Minions, too! He saw the movie in the theater, and he hasn’t stopped talking about it.
I wanted to make a simple snack inspired by Illumination Entertainment’s Minions movie, so in keeping with the oval shape of the minions, I decided to make some baked chips from tortillas. Of course, we also needed some cheese dip to go along with the yellow color of the minions, too.
- Olive oil spray
- Parmesan cheese (I used the non-refrigerated kind, but you could use the shredded refrigerated kind just as easily.)
- Processed cheese for melting
I started by making the oval shapes from the tortillas. I was going to use scissors to cut ovals, but I lucked upon a set of numbered cookie cutters. The zero made the perfect oval shape and size. I pressed hard enough to cut out the outer ring but did not punch out the center oval.
I made ovals from four large tortillas. The kids happily ate the scraps left over from the tortillas after cutting out the shapes.
Then, I brushed both sides of the ovals with olive oil and laid the ovals on my baking stone. Afterward, I sprinkled parmesan cheese on each round. Next, the stone went into an oven that was pre-heated to 375 degrees. The tortilla ovals baked for just over 5 minutes. It is very important to watch these closely and not depend on time because it doesn’t take long to go from perfect to scorched!
When I pulled the chips out, the cheese was starting to turn a little brown, but the chips were just crisp enough to be devoured quickly.
There almost wasn’t enough time to melt the cheese!

As far as Marvel Boy goes, he had a great time watching Minions with his minion pal with the Santa hat!
