|Little ones love cooking eggs in a piece of toast! |
Older children can break the egg and tip it into the prepared bread: Younger children can scramble the egg first.
Here's What You Need:*Toasted bread, or waffles-or a bagel, cut in half
*Butter, or cooking spray
*small bowl and fork to scramble eggs.
*Heart-Shaped or other shape cookie cutter, or a simple drinking glass to make a circle
Here's What You Do:
*Toast a piece of bread, waffle or bagel
*Have your child press a cookie cutter or drinking glass into the middle of the bread or waffle to make a hole--the bagel already has one!
*Show your child how to crack an egg on the edge of a bowl and empty it into the bowl. Alternately, have your child hold an egg in the palm of his or her hand. Demonstrate giving the egg a whack with a table knife and then pulling the two halves apart to empty the egg into the bowl. If you are willing to sacrifice a few eggs, this process is fascinating to children, and a good skill to practice and learn.
*Let your child whisk the egg with a fork.
*Place a cold frying pan on the table. Grease with butter, or use cooking spray.
*Have your child place the prepared bread into the center of the pan.
*Your young chef can pour the whisked egg from the bowl into hole in the bread.
*For safety,you take over now by heating the stove and frying the "egg in a basket" as your child watches. Flip and cook on both sides.
