Sunshine Toast - part deux

These are a favorite around Audrey's house. We had a lot of fun on this project and it was super easy. Audrey loves these and her father makes them for her on a regular basis. Now she is learning to cook them for him. We used a recipe from our 30 Healthy Things to Cook and Eat cards by Usborne. They have a lot of great recipes we are planning to use. This recipe is simple:
  • bread
  • egg
  • butter
Butter the bread, cut a hole in the middle large enough for the egg, crack egg into hole (or bowl if you are worried about shells), bake in the oven for 7 minutes at 400°F.

Audrey's Task:
  1. crack egg (her favorite task, she is getting a lot better)
Mom's Tasks:
  1. butter bread and cut hole for egg
  2. pour egg into hole
  3. place toast in oven
  4. spread jam on toast
We made this meal as part of a linkup. Please visit Food with Kid Appeal to see the other entries. Our thanks to Jenna for inviting us and for offering such a great idea. We plan to do more of these as we had fun with this one.

As I said, this is super easy. Mainly because you can place it in the oven, set a timer, and go do something else. Also, in Audrey's father's family they spread strawberry jam on this toast. It sounds bad but tastes good. Here are a few pictures:


  1. thanks for linking up to bwlf. i love how you list kid tasks and mom tasks! we've never tried strawberry jelly on our egg toast. please include a link from your post here, to this week's BWLF post on my blog!

  2. Papa Mike and I do a variation of this that we call egg in a next. Rather than bake - we fry. The buttered hole fried is the best part. Raspberry Jelly is even better! Just as Papa!

  3. Papa Mike and I do a variation of this that we call egg in a nest. We fry the toast and egg rather than bake it. Also the buttered hole fried is the best part especially when covered with raspberry jelly. Just ask Papa!


Audrey wants to hear from you!
