I have 3 ways for cooking eggs that your kids will enjoy.
In A Bag
I saw this on the Food Network years ago and it really works!
OMELET IN A BAG
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Crack two eggs in a small bowl and whisk.
Pour mixture into a quart ziplock bag.
Add about 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese (I added some canned mushrooms too). You can add whatever you want, just don’t overdue it. If it’s too heavy it will sink to the bottom and melt the bag.
Squish the bag to mix, remove the air and seal.
Place the bag in boiling water and boil for 10 minutes, turning to cook both sides. I hold the bag in the water until it begins to float, then I clip it to the pot with a clothespin.
Remove the bag to a plate (it will be HOT), carefully open and slide the omelet out.
I f you plan to freeze them, let them cool 5 – 1 0 minutes, then wrap in plastic wrap and put into a ziplock bag and freeze.
To prepare, remove omelet from plastic wrap and place on plate. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until knife inserted comes out hot.
In A Hole
My mom use to make these when I was little…a really long time ago. I made them for my children when they were young and they really liked them. Maybe yours will too.
HOLE THE MIDDLE
Cut a hole in the middle of a slice of bread with a glass. Place on wax paper and butter both sides of both pieces.
Melt a dab of butter in a medium hot skillet. Add the bread pieces.
Crack an egg into the hole. You can leave the yolk whole or break it…I like it broken.
Fry until the bottoms are light brown. Flip bread pieces and fry until done.
Mmm, good! There’s just something about the taste of eggs and toast together…now you can get both in one dish.
In The Microwave
There’s nothing special about this way, except that it’s the fastest way I know to make scrambled eggs. It comes in handy when you’ve got small ones that want breakfast…NOW.
Whisk 2-3 eggs in a glass bowl. You can add a teaspoon of water or milk if you want them fluffier.
Place bowl in microwave and cook for 2 minutes on high, stiring every 30 seconds or so. Keep an eye on them as they will “grow” as they cook. When they start “growing” is when I stir them.
Remove and season.
If you’re looking for something different to fix your children for breakfast, these might be eggactly what you’re looking for.
