Easy Eggs with this Kidliga Kid-Friendly Recipe


The month of September is all about raising awareness regarding childhood obesity and supporting children learning about living a healthy lifestyle (see information below). Part of learning about health is learning about healthy eating. The best way to do that is to participate in cooking. Kids can make the best chefs because they are curious, eager to try new things and best of all, they love to share!

In support of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and to encourage kids to explore cooking and embrace a healthy lifestyle, Kidliga has created some new, fun and easy recipes. Below is the first one we'd like to share. The recipe is named after Sammie who is a character in an award winning adventure book that teaches children about what makes up a balanced meal.


Sammie’s Sensational Egg Cups


(Choose which combinations of flavors you would like to include in your egg cups. Below are three tasty options.)



Ingredients: 
  • 1 ½ cups egg (6 eggs), whisked (whole, egg beaters or egg whites)
  • 12 Muffin Tin Liners
  • Canola Oil Cooking Spray
  •  ⅛ cup LivSpoon


Directions:

1.    Chop all vegetables, fruits and herbs. Place in separate small bowls. Chop enough of each
       ingredient to place 1 tablespoon in each muffin cup (about ¾ cup).

Discover your favorite ingredients to make tasty egg cups

2.    Spray the muffin tin cups with cooking spray.

3.    Place muffin tin liners in each muffin cup and spray with cooking spray.

4.    Fill a ⅛ cup LivSpoon with combinations of ingredients (recommended: ½ each of the listed
       ingredients within each category to follow prescribed combinations; or make up your own). Fill
       the LivSpoon twice, emptying the ingredients into the muffin tin liners.


LivSpoons make it so easy to mix and match right-sized ingredients

5.    Once ingredients are chosen and placed in the muffin liners, fill each liner with 1 to 2
       LivSpoons-ful of whisked egg, until the liner is nearly filled with liquid egg.



So fun to mix and match ingredients to make your favorite combinations of egg cups

6.    Place the muffin pan in an oven pre-heated to 375°. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown
       on top. Serve immediately. Serves 12.



  • Tip 1: Whisk all egg types. The egg will rise better.
  • Tip 2: Whole eggs rise best and are most easily removed from the liners.
  • Tip 3: Careful what fruit or vegetable you use. If they have two much water/moisture in them they won’t bake well.
  • Tip 4: Spray muffin tins in addition to liners for easy clean up. 


Enjoy! And Live Vibrant!
