I love breakfast food! Pancakes, French Toast- Good! Scrambled eggs, omelettes- Good! Bacon- Good! Breakfast sausage links- meh. Okay, so I love the vast majority of breakfast foods. Since my family never really sits down for a big morning meal together, we eat breakfast for dinner on a regular basis. In fact, we had French Toast for dinner last night! Breakfast foods are a great way to get kids helping in the kitchen. Pancakes and French Toast, scrambling eggs, these things are perfect for kids.
Fun fact: kids LOVE to crack eggs. I can't quite figure out the appeal but without fail, when I pull out a carton of eggs the kids all start bouncing on their toes, stretching their hands up to the sky, saying "Oooo! Oooo! Can I crack the eggs?!?!?!!?" Yes, of course you can!
I always have the kids crack eggs one at a time into a small bowl. They can check the small bowl for egg shell and more easily clean out any little shards they might find, then add their egg to the main bowl.
