Hihi friends of Hazelnutt House (",)
Before I had a kid, I always wondered why mothers and grandmothers or whoever that cooks for little ones for that matter are always cracking their brains on what/how to feed a child. Now that I am a mother, I realise that on good days, a child eats whatever is served... on a not-so-good day (which happens pretty often), they reject even their most-favouritest food. Very often, a well thought of menu goes unappreciated and eventually gets flung onto the floor by the grubby-lil-hands of a tantrum-peaking toddler.
My Tod seems to like her bread served this way FOR NOW...
Here's what I do...
Step 1: Cut slices of bread using fun shape-cutters.
Daiso has some or you can get huge cookie cutters.
Step 2 (above): Cut slices of cheese using the same cutters.
Step 3 (below): Dip dinosaurs and stars into egg mixture.
Step 4 (above): Place into toaster oven till egg mixture is cooked.
Step 5 (below): Place matching cheese slices onto the toast. TURN OFF OVEN at this point and close the oven door. Allow cheese to melt with the remaining heat.
Step 6 (above): Serve on toddler's most-favouritest plate & pray that she likes it (",)
When the child is old enough, he/she can cut out the shapes on their own. If you do not have a kid, you can always prepare these fancy toast for your very childish childlike partner or maybe even yourself? Hehee... (",) I've seen heart-shaped cutters - very suitable for Valentine's Day or just a 'you know I love you' breakfast for your loved ones (",)
