Eggs. Little beauties! They pack in protein and fats, vitamins and minerals – afterall, they contain everything it takes to transform a tiny embryo into an adorable chick! Luckily, we eat the non-fertilised variety, so they are free of rooster jizz/tiny baby chicks, phew. Kids don’t always like ’em though, so here is a way to jazz them up, whilst packing in calcium AND vegetables. Win!
Ingredients: (makes 2 patties)
– 1 egg, lightly beaten
– 2 tablespoons grated cheese
– one handful shredded baby spinach (or whatever the hell you fancy sneaking into your junior)
– 1/2 tablespoon cream
– butter/olive oil to grease the rings (teehee) and pan
Let the jazzing commence:
– in a mug, combine the egg, cheese, spinach and cream and give it a stir. My toddler loves to help with this. It blows his mind watching the egg crack and he loves to stir
– get your frypan heating up over a low heat, then whack in your butter/oil. My toddler loves to handle scolding hot frypans but child protection laws and common sense prevent me from allowing it
– grease up those two sweet egg-rings
– spoon in the egg mixture evenly into the rings
– cooking time will vary on the heat of your stovetop, so keep an eye on them and flip those cheeky dogs when they’re ready. (Mine takes around three minutes each side on a low heat setting)
– voila! Jazzed up eggs, fuckers!
