Egg Bake with a Little Baker

Today my little helper and I made an egg bake for lunch.  It was simple and easy...perfect for little ones to help with.

We started out by spraying cooking spray in our cake pan.  Then we sprinkled cheese in the bottom of the pan.

Next it was time to crack eggs.  My helper was excellent at it.  She cracked them one at a time, stirred the eggs and dumped them into the pan.  We just did one at a time because we were working really hard so we didn't get any shells in with the eggs.

It was hard work because we had to do that EIGHT times!

Next we had to decide which topping we wanted on our eggs. way she said.  Ham...YES!!

I had peppers on my side.

Next we sprinkled more cheese over the top.

We baked it in the oven for 20 minutes.

Then we ate.

It was a fun simple activity that we did that made for an easy lunch.

Here's the actual recipe.

Take a 9×13 pan and spray with cooking spray.  Sprinkle some shredded cheese over the bottom on the pan.  Crack 6-12 eggs into the pan. 
If you are feeding more people, use 12 eggs and it will be a bit thicker.  If it’s just two of you, it would work to use a 9×9 pan and only use 4-6 eggs.  When all the family is home I use 20 eggs in a jelly roll pan.

Add any ingredients you would normally like in a omelet.  Ham and mushrooms is real popular choice at our
 house.  Sprinkle another layer of cheese over the eggs and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  Make sure the eggs are no longer runny.  Take it out of the oven and cut into serving size pieces.

It ends up looking like this...
