Jodi Lariviere shares seasonal recipes that are as healthy as they are yummy


Did you all catch a break from breakfast-making duty this past weekend? Shouldn’t Mother’s Day happen all the time? Well it can certainly feel like it by teaching your kids to make one really great breakfast all on their own. It won’t take much before they want to make you a special breakfast every weekend! What’s so great about this recipe? No sharp knives needed, it has a funny name and it’s really tasty.

Kids will need supervision and a crash course on cooking safety, but older kids will be able to pull off this recipe pretty much on their own once they have been given some instruction. Remember how excited you were when they learned to tie their own shoes because you knew you wouldn’t always have to be the one doing it?? Prepare to feel that times 10 because this time you get something delicious out of the process!

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 eggs
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 handfuls of grated cheese

Spread the butter on the bread. Using a 3-inch circle cookie cutter (other shapes are fun too! Just make sure they are big enough for the egg to fit into) cut out a circle in the centre of the bread. Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Place all pieces of bread on the pan and crack an egg into the middle of the cut out. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 2-3 minutes until egg white begins to cook. Flip the bread and the egg together and the ‘holes’ over and cook until egg is cooked to desired consistency. I like mine over easy… hint hint, nudge nudge family. Over each egg add a handful of cheese and top with the toasted ‘hole’ or ‘lid’.
