If you’re looking for some fun & easy breakfast recipes kids can make, you’ve come to the right place!
Breakfast is our absolute favorite meal in our home. We love it so much that we will eat breakfast foods any time of the day…. for lunch and for dinner (my little chef calls it Brinner). So when Johnsonville invited us to make recipes with their line of breakfast sausage, we were thrilled! We thought it would be fun to create a Breakfast, Brunch and Brinner series and share easy, kid-friendly recipes that your little chef can make for themselves or the whole family. Our first recipe as part of the series is Breakfast in a Jar.
I have to admit, putting Breakfast in a Jar is absolutely genius. It’s quick, easy to make ahead and a perfect grab-n-go for busy mornings. Plus it’s a great way to get kids to cook their own breakfast.
For this recipe, we went with the Maple flavored fully cooked breakfast sausage along with eggs and spinach for a protein packed way to start the day.
In a bowl, mix 8 eggs along with spinach, salt & pepper.
SOUS CHEF MOMMY TIP: Kitchen shears or scissors are great alternative to knives for little chefs when cutting soft ingredients
Love the idea of Breakfast in a Jar? Here are some other fun recipes that kids can make:
- 4-6 Johnsonville fully cooked breakfast sausage links
- 8 eggs
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup cheese
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees then spray the inside of 3-4 jars with cooking spray.
- In a bowl, mix eggs, spinach, small cuts of sausage, and salt & pepper.
- Pour the egg mixture in the mason jars then sprinkle cheese in each jar.
- Place jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until firm.
- You can place each jar in the microwave as an alternative to placing in the oven
