Reasons to Love these Scrambled Eggs

- Eggs: an easy and budget-friendly source of protein for baby. For this recipe, we are going to use 2 eggs, but you can easily flex this recipe up to make more servings.
- Yogurt: this may be a controversial ingredient, but it is the key ingredient in getting super fluffy eggs that are soft yet firm enough for baby to be able to feed themselves. You can also sub in goat cheese or cream cheese if you want to get super fancy.
- Whisk: In a small bowl, add in the eggs and yogurt. Going in only one direction, whisk the mixture with a fork or small whisk.
- Add Eggs: Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add in butter and let it melt. When the butter is bubbling, add in the whisked eggs.
- Cook: Let eggs cook for 15 seconds, then using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently fold the eggs from the outside of the skillet towards the middle. The uncooked eggs will go where the spatula was and the cooked eggs will go towards the center. Continue with this motion until most of the eggs are in the middle. Gently fold the pile over itself until you have soft yet firm eggs. You want the eggs firm enough to be able to be picked up by your baby.
- Serve: Let cool for a few minutes and then place a few chunks of scrambled egg on a plate or highchair tray for baby. If serving to a toddler you can add a small pinch of salt and pepper before serving.
These scrambled eggs are amazing as is, but you can also have fun with these suggested add-ins:
- chopped spinach
- sprinkle of your favorite cheese
- chopped red peppers
- diced mushrooms
- pinch of spice – nutmeg, curry, garam masala, paprika or turmeric
Nutrition of Eggs for Baby
- High in Omega-3 fatty acids which help keep baby’s heart healthy and strong.
