Making Scrambled Eggs with Four Year Old

Out of all three of my kids, the four year old boy seems to be the one who wants to do everything by himself. Yes, even things he should not be doing by himself. I praise him for his independent nature and try my best to encourage it. That is why he has a love of eggs, cracking eggs that is.

Egg Cracking Four Year Old

K-man loves scrambled eggs, it is the only type of eggs he will eat for breakfast. While my other two kids are all for omelets, fried eggs, and scrambled eggs, K-man will only eat “fluffy scrambled eggs” and usually they are preferred if made by his Dad because I tend to not make them fluffy as Daddy does, so says K-man. Maybe the fact that K-man doesn’t trust my scrambled eggs skills makes him more apt to help Mama when making his breakfast meal of scrambled eggs.

Scrambled Eggs Made Rigth

K-man is so funny about cracking his eggs and to boot, he rarely ever gets any shell into the cracked egg in the bowl. He stares at that egg, taking time to crack it just right and when done, he beams with pride! K-man will crack 2 eggs in a bowl, help me put some milk in it and then use a whisk or fork to stir it all up. Then he helps me pour the egg mixture into the pan while watching me cook his scrambled eggs in the way he tells me to do.

My little independent four year old is the man, he is so interested in everything about his world that it is wonderful and scary at the same time.

Making Egg Salad Sandwiches

Egg salad sandwiches are a favorite in my home with the ten and six year old. I personally prefer a nice egg salad sandwich on toasted bread with a piece of cheese and some salt sprinkled on it. Today I share with you how I make my egg salad ….

how do I Make egg salad

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 tablespoons mayo or salad dressing
  • bowl
  • spoon and fork
  • tsp of salt
  • bread

Make The Egg Salad

Place six eggs into a pan and fill with water. Place on stove on high heat, bringing to a boil. Once the water reaches a boiling point, let eggs boil for 10 minutes.

Pour the eggs from hot pan into a bowl that won’t suffer from having boiling hot water dumped on it under cold running water in the sink. Run cold water on the eggs, keep eggs in a bowl covered in cold water. Put the bowl with hard boiled eggs covered in water in fridge for about ten minutes.

Prepare a bowl with mayo or salad dressing on side, a fork and a tablespoon.

Take the eggs out of the fridge and peel off the shell. Wash each egg off in cold faucet water prior to placing in your mixing bowl.

Use the fork to mash up the eggs and egg yolk until it’s fine without  a lot of chunks. This is where you can play with a texture that works best for you.

Add two tablespoons of mayo or salad dressing to the bowl of chopped up eggs. Mix well.

Make Your Sandwich

Take two pieces of bread, you can toast them in the toaster if you prefer first. Add some egg salad to one of the pieces of bread, top with a sprinkle of salt {if desired} then a piece of cheese {if desired}. Place other piece of bread on top and voila you have your very own egg salad sandwich.
