Today’s post is from Rashmi from YumKid. Her blog is filled with tasty, kid-friendly recipes and so much more. She has two (adorable!) children and shares her wisdom on feeding them well. I’m honored to have her guest post for me today!
I am always in awe of how things taste differently depending on how they are cooked. For example bread – it tastes so different when you toast it in the oven, or toast it in a pan, or toast it on the BBQ grill, or toast it in a Panini Bread Maker. I like doing this for my kids so they see that there are many different way to make the same thing and how the flavor of the food changes based on how it is cooked.
The ingredients for this recipe are not fancy by itself, but if you toast the bread in a Panini maker, then all of a sudden this breakfast becomes gourmet for the kids (Isn’t it amazing how the right kitchen equipment can make a meal go from normal to gourmet?). Plus my 3.5 year old gets such a kick out of pressing the Panini maker at home. The kids can also decide which fruit topping they want on top of it. Giving them the freedom to choose their topping is an example of what I call giving the kids the freedom to choose but I am secretly controlling the outcome aka I want them to have healthy toppings so I only give them 2-3 pre-approved choices to choose from.
I really like this recipe as the kids can get involved in making this recipe and it is a fun quick recipe that you can make on busy work days or on the weekends. I think this recipe will make a great recipe for Mother’s Day Brunch this coming weekend.
Feel free to adjust the amount of ingredients based on your palate but here’s my inspiration for making this breakfast for the kiddos.
So here’s how I made it:Print
