This little beauty is super quick to make, requires very few ingredients and is bursting with flavour! If our daughter isn’t feeling super hungry, it’s not the end of the world, we usually end up fighting over this one! The Scrambled Breakfast was a game changer! Athena loved it, and it gave us a way of introducing her to new flavours and textures.
Delicious, nutritious and full of flavour – this scrambled combo is the best way for your little one to start the day. The eggs are a fantastic source of protein, the ham adds a saltiness, the spring onion adds a bit of a crunch, and the cheese makes it all gooey and lovely!
When weaning your child, it is important to give them a varied and balanced diet. To do this we need to make sure they are getting their fibre, proteins and fats. This is a brilliant example of how to accomplish all of this in just one meal!
When weaning your child you want to stay away from too much seasoning. I know when I started out, our daughter’s pallet couldn’t handle the food that was enhanced with a range of flavours. She wanted simple foods, so we created foods that do not require a lot of prep and ingredients. Since then she has been lapping them up. It also means we can stop spending a fortune on Ella’s Pouches!
- Half a spring onion
- Quarter of a slice of Gouda Cheese
- One slice of Ham (the type is up to you, something with a little bit of a salty flavour or even a honey roast)
- One whole egg
- Small amount of coconut oil (1/4 tsp)
Finely slice the spring onion into thin ringlets, making sure you are taking from the front and the back. This is to make sure that your child experiences the full range of flavour. As the child gets older, you can use the rest of the spring onion in the dish.
Finely dice the ham so it is really thin and roughly chop the cheese to help it melt faster.
Add your coconut oil to your saucepan allowing it to melt. Then proceed to add the finely sliced spring onion and ham and letting it cook together for about 30 seconds.
Crack in your egg and then begin to scramble the breakfast together. As the egg starts to cook, add the roughly chopped cheese and mix it around until melted.
The Perfect Scrambled Breakfast should be cooked within 3 minutes! With an additional 2 minutes for prep – you have yourself a 5 minute breakfast that your little one will love!
