It’s important to keep kids energized and focused during and after school hours by providing them with foods packed with key nutrients such as vitamins E, D, B12 and omega-3s. Whether eggs are the star of your breakfast omelet or an afterschool scrambled egg snack, Eggland’s Best Eggs offers recipes that your kids can easily help out with in the kitchen to fuel your child’s creativity this school year!
With a little help from my kids, we decided to take the Eggland's Best "Kid Approved" Recipe Challenge. We already have plenty of egg suggestions on the blog, from quiches to mini pies to regular boiled eggs, so I asked F&B to tell me what they might like or suggest to other kids.
The resounding answer? Egg salad bentos!
How do we make our egg salad?
- Just boil 4 Eggland's Best eggs--put them in cool water, bring it to a boil, cover, shut off the heat and let them sit for 15 minutes. Drain the water, add cool water and let them sit some more.
- Once the eggs are cold, dice them in a handy dandy egg slicer, first long ways, then cross ways.
- Add them to a container with about 1/4 cup of real mayonnaise (not light, not salad dressing, actual mayo!)
- Mix really well until the yolks are blended in.
- Optional add in? Diced, cooked bacon, but we didn't have any this week.
And of course, that egg salad must go into an egg salad bento lunch! Ben had egg salad sandwiches on mini cocktail breads, which are both cute and convenient. For side dishes, he chose a mini-orange, grapes, and a strawberry-almond Greek yogurt bar. Lunch is packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes.
