My kids love Greek food. One of their most requested meals is our Greek pasta salad – it is perfect in a school lunch box. So, when I opted to put all the flavours of our Greek pasta salad into scrambled eggs it totally made sense to me.
My kids on the other hand were doubtful. What would Mediterranean scrambled eggs taste like?
What better way to convince kids to try something new then by getting them involved in making the dish.
Kid Made Mediterranean Scrambled Eggs
6 large eggs
2 tbsp milk (we used skim milk)
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vegetable oil
handful of chopped spinach
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup of chopped cherry tomatoes
crumbled feta cheese – as much or as little as you like
salt and pepper to taste
Begin by whisking the eggs with the milk in a large bowl. Whisk until they are well combined. Let the kids crack the eggs and do the whisking. Yes, the egg cracking might be a little messy to begin with – but with practice the kids will get pretty good at cracking.
As the eggs begin to cook, toss in the other ingredients – the spinach, oregano, tomatoes, feta, salt and pepper. Continue stirring until the eggs are cooked to your liking.
Don’t be afraid to let the kids do the stirring. If your child is short, let them stand on a steady stool. Always be sure they aren’t wearing any loose clothing when working around a stove top.
Today’s recipe was inspired by Chef Jamie Oliver’s Silky Masala Eggs. Scrambled eggs are a beautiful blank canvas into which many different flavours can be introduced. We decided to add Greek flavours to our eggs, what will flavours will you add to yours?
