E is for Egg | Cooking The Alphabet | Cooking With Toddlers | Toddler Recipes | Baby-Led Weaning

Updated: Oct 8, 2021

Hi, I’m Amber, and I’m cooking the alphabet with my two toddlers.

Today we’re going simple and making Egg Waffle Sandwiches for E is for Egg.

First we had a mini lesson on pots vs. pans, and I let the girls pick out a pot to boil eggs in. My 3-year-old helped to put the waffles in the toaster, of course you can always make them from scratch.

We then microwaved some breakfast sausage, and now’s a good time to remind you that, for me, cooking the alphabet is an activity we’re doing with the goal of bonding and learning kitchen skills, not necessarily with the goal of creating healthy snacks.

What you need:

  1. Ingredients: Toaster Waffles (or feel free to make them from scratch!), Breakfast sausage patties, eggs

  2. Tools: Kid-safe knife

Getting The Kids Cooking:

Set-up tasks your toddler can help with include:

  • Grabbing ingredients from the fridge

  • Picking out a pot to boil water in or pan to scramble eggs in

Then the fun part comes:

  • Putting the waffles in the toaster

  • Cutting the waffle and sausage

  • Peeling and chopping the egg

  • Assembling the sandwich

Remember to take photos of your little chef peeling and assembling!

My kids ate the first round of waffles while we were waiting for the egg to cook, so we had to make more! We chose to do hard-boiled eggs instead of scrambled or fried because on our very first letter - A for Avocado - I learned that my kids absolutely love peeling eggs. You can of course choose whichever kind you think your kiddo will enjoy the most!

Now that the kids had fun, it's mama's turn!

Let's assemble the E page in our Baby Eats The Alphabet Recipe Book!

What you need:

Of course, we recommend purchasing a Baby Eats The Alphabet kit, which will have everything you need to create your recipe book keepsake (except the photos of your little ones), but honestly, the point is to create a beautiful book of your memories - which you can with: printed photos, paper (we recommend paper at least 8.5" x 8.5" so you can fit a photo plus the recipe!), double-sided tape, any fun embellishments you want like stickers, washi tape, or photo protectors, and something to hold your pages, like binder or scrapbook!

Write your recipe:

Use a small piece of paper to write down the recipe you used, and any memorable notes you want to record. Normally, I write little notes about funny moments or memories from our cooking experience on the page, but this time I left a different kind of note that reads:

“Remember girls, sometimes it’s okay to give yourself a break! You’re doing amazing!”

I hope one day in the far future, they open up this book and read this page at the exact moment they need this reminder.

Pick your photos and lay everything out:

Before applying any tape, I recommend you lay out all of your elements to make sure everything fits and you like how it looks. Once you're happy with it, tape everything down, starting with the bottom layer first! And here's how mine turned out:

I would love to see what you decided to cook and create for E is for Egg(plant)! Please tag me in your creations @BabyEatsTheAlphabet!
