Scrambled Eggs, Preschool Style #SundaySupper

Mom's plate with salsa and cottage cheese.

We are participating in the third event of The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman, Easy Back to School Recipes. This cookbook is amazing and yet so simple. The recipes are easy for any overworked mom (myself included) to execute and yet we keep finding fun new recipes and meals to try. This week we decided to tackle a family favorite, scrambled eggs.

The girls and I like to make this dish for any meal. Dinner tends to be the meal we have scrambled eggs for most often with lunch running a close second. Eggs are so easy when you want the children to have a healthy breakfast or need a fast dinner for those nights there are too many activities (Thursday for us).

What makes our scrambled eggs special is that we usually make them fun colors instead of including add-ins. Pink is the most requested color with green a close second. This week we colored our eggs orange! For the record, pink coloring comes from pureed beets, green from pureed spinach, and orange from pureed carrots.

Katie has some great tips in The Mom 100 Cookbook for you to build your own favorite Scrambled Egg meal. You too can have an amazing #SundaySupper with very little work. Amazon has the Kindle edition listed for less than $4 today. I am not certain if this is a special or regular price.

Scrambled Eggs
  • 6 organic eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter for the pan
We like to add milk to our eggs to make them fluffy but it is not necessary. Our eggs usually include 2 to 4 tbsp of puree, this week it was carrot. If you don't have time to make puree you can substitute baby food. 

Crack eggs into a medium bowl and mix with a fork until thoroughly combined. Add milk or puree as desired. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add eggs and cook until done. Audrey likes to stir the eggs while they cook.

Eggs go great with many items, this week we had fruit and cottage cheese. Actually, the girls had fruit, mom had peach flavored salsa. Paired with our favorite green monster it was an amazing meal. The girls had milk to drink.

After dinner I like to have the girls help me clean up. This time the girls loaded the dishwasher. I was able to clean up the rest of the meal while they worked.

Time to make the eggs.

A good egg beater is fun.

Everyone likes fruit with dinner.
