My 3 year old has just started to take an interest in helping me in the kitchen, his favourite thing lately to “cook” is scrambled eggs and he takes great pleasure in whisking the eggs up with a fork! Scrambled eggs are about the only egg based meal I can get him to eat, but I decided with a little encouragement there might be another egg based meal he would enjoy making and eating! This is ideal as a breakfast, or light lunch and you only need bread, an egg and some herbs to season, yes we’re making child friendly eggy bread!
Take a slice of bread (we used a slightly stale home made slice!) and a cookie cutter.
Use the cookie cutter to cut out the shape you want the eggy bread to be, ours is a duck (do you see what I did with the title of this post?!..haha!)
Whisk the egg and add a little herbs of your choice (you could add salt if you’re a grown up!) then carefully put the bread into the egg mix, make sure you cover both sides of the bread evenly with egg.
The grown up part! Heat a frying pan with a little olive oil (you won’t need much just a little spritz) once the pan is hot drop the eggy bread into the pan and fry it for a couple of minutes on each side until brown. Then pop it onto a plate, we added a raisin for an eye and some tomatoes to decorate!
It was very popular with my very fussy 3 year old and you could be as adventurous or plain as you want to be when decorating! We might do an eggy bread version of a teddy bears picnic for breakfast at the weekend!
