Breakfast is one of the easiest meals to cook. It is also one of the easiest meals to teach your children how to cook. Our family keeps backyard chickens so we always have an abundance of farm fresh eggs. My kids have been cracking eggs since they were two and could whip up a batch of scrambled eggs in kindergarten!
Now, cooking bacon and breakfast meats is one of the last things they learn how to cook because of all the grease. Yet there are many different types of breakfast recipes that you can teach them how to cook. These are also super fun to do together as a family and create some really sweet memories.
