A special thanks to Eggland’s Best for sponsoring our French Toast recipe today. This gave us a great chance to feature the kids in the kitchen and teach them how to cook and featuring a delicious new recipe! All opinions are definitely our own.
This last week, Miss Jade, the Husband and I have been horribly sick. Miss Jade brought a nasty cold home from school and it has held us captive ever since. So that means not a lot of energy or motivation to make elaborate meals. Naturally that means the boys have been stepping up and helping in the house. Well, at least I wish. I can dream right?
Actually they have been taking advantage of Mom and Dad being sick and slacking off. /sigh. The trials of parenting right? But that is about to change. I decided it was time they learned how to help make some food so when Mom and Dad are sick again, they CAN jump in and help. At least a little bit. To make sure they don’t starve.
Easy French Toast Recipe for Kids.
A great way to include the kids in the kitchen is to start with a kid approved recipe. Like easy french toast! It is so easy to make. And something that they can do with little supervision. So it is also the perfect meal option for when Mom and Dad are sick and can’t really make a traditional meal.
And when you use quality ingredients like Eggland’s Best eggs, it also adds in some nutritional value to keep everyone happy. Eggland’s Best eggs are packed fresher and stay fresher than ordinary eggs. Plus they contain more than double the omega-3s, which studies have found may boost attention in kids under 12. Plus, they feature ten times the vitamin E, which is a key antioxidant for strong immunity. Not to mention that Eggland’s Best eggs pack 4 times the Vitamin D and only have 60 calories versus the 70 calories as regular Eggs.
For us it was a fun learning experience for the boys. And I love how easy it is to teach how to make the delicious French toast that my kids love to eat!
Usually it takes about 1 Eggland egg per person you are cooking for. So for us that means 5 eggs minimum. Maybe add 1-2 extra eggs at the end if you think someone might want seconds.
I also found that using Almond milk gives it a great flavor versus regular milk. And Mexican Vanilla is a definite must have. PURE vanilla. Not the imitation stuff. Like I said what makes this really stand out is the quality of the ingredients. And the fact that it is so easy to make. Seriously my kids made dinner with a little supervision from us. Yeah!
The kids did great helping out. And they had a lot of fun practicing cracking the eggs. I think that was their favorite part.
And then dipping and flipping the french toast was a very close second.
Even little Jade got in on the action of helping to mix the French Toast “batter”.
I think this is definitely a success in our house. Success for them learning to cook and success for me not having to cook a big meal when I’m still fighting this nasty virus. Wahoo on all counts.
Now we just like to top it with sliced strawberries, maybe a little powdered sugar and of course 100% pure maple syrup. Oh yum!
Add some more protein by scrambling or frying up some more of the Eggland’s Best eggs as a side and toss in some Canadian bacon. Serve with juice. You have a great option for Breakfast for Dinner!
