Quick and Easy “Fancy” Egg Recipe for Kids

Kids and EggsQuick and easy are the two requirements of our weekday breakfasts and I’m happy to add another choice to the short list of options! My five-year-old does not love breakfast, so when I made this the first time I had him help me to encourage his acceptance of the dish. Now he nearly makes the entire meal himself! He calls it his “Fancy” egg breakfast, which cracks me up, no pun intended! I love that my son loves exerting his growing independence and the meal offers a filling, protein-rich start to the day!
