Puns are fun huh! Eggs are a staple in our home and man do we go through them like water. We do supper and desserts with them but our top uses revolve around breakfast and snacks.
My two oldest boys are 18 and 15. They are athletic and know that eggs are a great source of protein which they very much need during workouts and sports throughout the year. I try to keep hard boiled eggs for them on hand at all times. It helps to rebuild their body’s protein levels and is clearly a much healthier option than junk food you know?
Truett is 5 and also loves hard boiled eggs as a snack with his Dad but also really likes a quiche with spinach. YUM! What I love is that no matter what breakfast I make, if it has eggs, he always helps crack them so not only is he getting to help and eating a healthy breakfast, but I’m getting a little bonding time with my baby.
One of the things always lacking no matter what meal or snack…is time. That’s why I was so eggcited to see some really quick & easy egg recipes that you can make in the microwave! We tried this 3-Minute Breakfast Hash from the American Egg Board and holy cow, we loved it!! I quickly made one for Truett and me before we headed off to school and it was a hit. Truett LOVED the fact that it’s a bowl full of yumminess that he could hold himself. It made him feel like a big boy.
