Egg bowls, anyone?
Foods 1 class is learning about how to cook in microwaves and we moved onto our egg and dairy unit. I decided why not combine the two and teach the kids how to make quick recipes using this inexpensive protein.
First, I precooked all the meat for them and created a vegetable bar with pre-cut veggies.
We followed the basic instructions from this recipe , but the addition of vegetables required microwave sauteeing prior to the actual recipe.
I taught them how to soften the veggies in the microwave with a teaspoon of olive oil.
Then they followed the egg breakfast bowl recipe.
Awesome looking breakfast bowls I’d wake up for.
Brittney has it mastered.
Most of the students preferred no vegetables on the DIY bar, but I liked having this healthy option.
Another recipe we made was microwave omelettes.
They start with one egg.
They add their cooked meat and any sauteed veges and cheese.
It’s ready to fold over
Yum. Microwave omelettes, who knew?
I also demonstrated how to make quiche and they sampled it as well.
It was quite an EGGSTRORDINARY DAY
Leftovers are bagged and labeled for the freezer to use in future labs.
