Fun & Nutritious Kid Breakfast

I don't know where I got this idea; it was taught to me years before I had kids. It's a fun way to liven up breakfast; a little surprise for the wee ones!

What you need:
  • bread
  • eggs
  • butter
  • cookie cutter
  • pan & spatula

What you do:

1. Butter both sides of a piece of bread and cut a shape out of the middle with a cup or a cookie cutter.

2. Remove the center cut-out.

3. Place the bread ring into a preheated pan and crack an egg into the middle.

4. Flip it over when it seems cooked enough on one side (after about 2 minutes) and cook about a minute more.

5. Fry up the cut-outs. (This doesn't take long on a hot pan. If you have a larger pan, you can do it at the same time as the egg & bread - just don't burn 'em!)

6. Call your hungry kids to the table!

Serve with some juice or fruit, and you have a quick, entertaining, and balanced breakfast!


  1. I was just saying this morning to the kids that we need more variety in our breakfasts. This looks lovely.
    Thanks for that!

  2. I just thought of this the other day! I still love this - it turned out great as a blog post!
