Trying Dippy Eggs #kidsinthekitchen

My kids are creatures of habit when it comes to breakfast. Maybe it’s because school days don’t offer lots of time to work in a large hot meal or maybe they just really like eating their old standbys. This week Shae sent me into shock by asking for runny eggs so she can dip her toast. I like eggs like this, so does Rob but typically getting my kids to eat eggs is a battle.

Trying Sunny Side Up Eggs #kidsinthekitchen

I obliged and made her 1 sunny side up egg, a sausage link and a slice of toasted wheat bread. She spent the first couple of minutes poking the hell out of the yolk. She dipped and ate, dipped and ate. I then showed her how to scoop up the remaining egg to put on the other half of her toast. Her conclusion, she loved it! I’m still surprised but happy that she experimented a little and went for something unfamiliar.

  1. Bravo to her for giving it a go!

  3. Thanks for the linky! Can’t wait to try out some of these recipes and crafts.

  4. Love the recipes and crafts! Can’t wait to share them!

  5. Looks like a winner! Have you tried a birds nest?…cutting a hole in the middle of bread, cracking the egg in the hole and frying… so delicious! I think i have a post about this to link…

  6. That awesome she ate sunny-side up eggs. My boys love things like shrimp, conch, etc., but won’t eat normal foods…like pizza.

  7. It’s so funny when kids accept or get excited about a new food or way of eating a food – THEN for the next 7 days…the want the same thing! Cracks me up! Looks like she enjoyed them!

  8. I like seeing the expressions on her face as she’s experiencing it for the first time! Dipping toast is eggs is yummy and fun!

  9. Perhaps it’s not the strangest, but I still do not understand what is appealing about eating green eggs and ham. Even after reading the book.

  10. First of all, thank you so much for featuring my popcorn snowman this week. What an honor!
    I also love the way you involve children in the kitchen and encourage others to do the same. This is the best way to indirectly introduce healthy eating habits. The fun and parental companionship is such a valuable teacher. It is kind of a bonus that food has to be made anyway – so why not make it a shared activity? In the end, time is spent with the kids yet there is a worthwhile product to show for it – and no rush for mom to do it alone after the Legos are scooped off the floor!

  11. I am not a fan of sunny side up eggs. My husband and kids are, though, so I was forced to learn how to make them. I am glad Shae asked to try them!

  12. I liked this story and am glad I read it. The weirdest food request for me was when my twins were three and begged for sushi. One of the twins loved it and still asks for it all the time.
