Four Fun Ways to Cook Eggs
- Hardboiled eggs: Hardboiled eggs are healthy and low in fat. They can be eaten as part of a healthy breakfast, a nutritious snack, dinner salad, or pasta dish. Once hardboiled eggs are cooled kids can decorate them for a fun twist.
- Omelets: Omelets are a great way to cook eggs with veggies or low-fat cheese. They make a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Let kids stir eggs in a small bowl before cooking them in a frying pan with cooking spray. Add veggies like broccoli, mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach for a healthy meal. The kids can also help cut the veggies. Try our Vegetable Omelet with your family.
- Scrambled egg sandwiches: Scrambled eggs are often a favorite for kids and a great protein pack way to start the day. Make your scrambled eggs with low-fat cheese and spray the pan with cooking spray to cut the fat. A scrambled egg sandwich with whole grain bread or an English muffin is a great grab and go breakfast for kids.
- Quiche: A quiche is a quick and easy dish made with eggs. Try making a quiche with a variety of veggies like spinach, green peppers, mushrooms, and onions. For a healthier option, make a quiche without a crust and use only a small amount of low-fat cheese. Try this quiche recipe at home for a quick, weeknight dinner.
