Good Breakfast, Good Morning

Breakfast is an important meal, the most important, truth be told.
A good breakfast gives kids a good start for their day, whether it’s for school or play.
It is especially important this time of year during TCAP, (our state mandated Performance Test).

One of the first offers of advice from the principle and the teachers is for the students to get a good night's sleep and a nutritious breakfast.

Parent Center offers some suggestions for kids’ breakfasts in ten minutes or less:

* Granola bars
* Whole wheat bagel with peanut butter
* Oat bran muffin
* Fruit
* Orange-banana smoothie
* Very berry smoothie
* Fruit salad
* Waffles with berries or bananas
* Cereal with milk
* Instant oatmeal

Do Put Your Eggs In A Basket........


My daughters also enjoy an "egg in a basket". A comfort food my grandmother used to make me. It has great protein and fiber and jump starts the brain early in the morning. It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. Served with fruit, it is a warm, fast breakfast, and something you can call "homemade".

Egg in a Basket*
(this is for 1.. my girls usually can eat 2 each)
*SpoiledMom's "Nannie's" recipe

1 slice of whole grain bread

1 egg

dash of salt

butter or margarine (I use margarine due to using a higher heat to cook the egg) you can also omitt if using a nonstick pan. The butter adds extra flavor and helps brown the bread.

small glass (like a juice glass)
____________________________
You can make up to four of these in a larger, fryer pan, or do one at a time in a small skillet.
____________________________

1.Heat skillet or griddle to medium high.

2.Put 2 tablespoons butter or margarine in skillet.

3.Using glass, open side down, and like a cookie cutter, cut out a
"hole" in he center of bread. (don't toss away circle cut-out, this is going to be your "toast")

4.Place bread in skillet w/butter.

5Allow butter to coat bottom side of toast and brown slightly.

6.With spatula, turn over bread. ( you may need to add more butter or margarine as needed)

7.Crack egg and place in cut out hole in bread while in skillet.

Maintain a med-high heat.
add more margarine, if needed.

8.Butter cut out circle and place in skillet.

9. After the egg inside the bread starts to set, flip over with spatula.

10.Allow to cook until desired set of yolk. Add more butter if needed,

Sprinkle with dash of salt before removing from pan.

I allow about 5-7 min for light medium well. Gives enough "runnage" for dipping toast. LOL

I serve this with fruit like bananas, grapes, orange slices, cantaloupe and juice or milk for balanced quick breakfast the kids love.

Once at a slumber party I made these the next morning for all the girls. Afterwards, I got calls from mothers asking how to make "these freakin' egg in a basket's" LOL (secretly lovin' me some Susie Homemaker-self) LOL... My reply, "OH those....They're soooo easy!"

With all the prepackaged breakfast foods out there it is easy and quick to get something down our kids in the morning. But sometimes, I like to put a little extra love into it, and let it stick with them all day long.... spoilage : )
