Season 9, Episode 1 – Turkey Day! Hooray!
Turkey-themed baskets keep the kid chefs in the right state of mind as they try to make a meal that guest judge David Dobrik will gobble up, starting with a bucket of turkey meatballs in round one. A rare form of mashed potatoes makes for a hearty hurdle in the entree round, but will the two remaining kids be thankful for or fearful of the dessert goodie in the third basket?

The kid cooks give new life to Thanksgiving leftovers, beginning in round one with a puree that the preteens haven’t eaten in years. Two classics must be repurposed in the entree round, and cranberry sauce desserts are in store for guest judge Alanna Masterson as the last two junior chefs finish out the competition.

Starting with ketchup soda in round one, the young chefs seek to learn from their mistakes and roll with weird ingredients to impress guest judges Gina Torres and Daniel Breaker. A fancy food and a frozen drink are among the ingredients in the second round, and pork rinds in the dessert basket challenge the last two kid cooks to get creative.
Season 9, Episode 4 – Holiday Hoopla
Holiday wishes come true as the junior chefs get a chance to impress guest judge Rashad Jennings, starting in round one with creative fish dishes. A meaty second course follows before the final two kids find festive surprises like edible snow in the dessert basket.
Season 9, Episode 5 – Holiday Gift Baskets
Young chefs celebrate the holidays with guest judge Corey Fogelmanis and a wrapped present in each round. Along with their seasonal surprises, the kids get cooking with duck in the first round, a popular protein in the entree basket and Santa Claus melon for dessert.

Brave kid cooks set out to prove they have what it takes to thrive in the kitchen and impress guest judge Vanessa Marano. They get creative with wild doughnuts in round one and stinky cheese in the entree round. Creamy and colorful desserts are in order after the junior chefs open the last basket.
