We washed our hands of course.
I had them cut out the center of their bread with a cookie or biscuit cutter.
Next step, butter and heat the pan. I had them each put butter in the pan but made sure and told them the pan was very hot so they had to keep their hands high above it so as not to get burned.
I had them put their toast in the skillet. I was standing there the whole time. Then I had them crack their eggs into measuring cups. I did this in case some shell got in there and it is easier to get out in the cups than in the skillet. They LOVED cracking the eggs.
Then I had them pour (with my help) the egg into the hole in the toast. After that they salt and peppered the eggs.
I actually flipped the toast with their help (they helped me hold the handle of the spatula). Then I had them salt and pepper the other side. After the eggs were cooked through, we sat down to enjoy the breakfast that they cooked. My son said it was "pretty good". I say that is victory!
Next week's lesson will be on "spreading" and I think we will make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. If they can get that down, then they could make lunch 3 days a week.
What about you, how do you teach your kids to cook?
