Confession: It may not be the most Fit Bottomed choice, but I love cookie dough. But every time I sneak a bite (or four) of cookie dough when I’m baking, I hear that angel on my shoulder. And not because I’m eating cookie dough. Oh, no. Moderation, ya’ll. The angel is saying, “Foodborne illness! Be careful! Are you CRAZY!?” And yes, yes I am. And I eat the cookie dough anyway (except when I’m pregnant).
I’ve never gotten sick from eating raw eggs, but I feel like I’m tempting fate every single time. So when Safest Choice sent me coupons to try its pasteurized eggs, I went under-cooked egg crazy. Okay, not really. But I did experiment with a few fun ideas for kids—a couple of which included eggs on the under-cooked side that would make me nervous to serve my kids if not for the fact that Safest Choice’s eggs are pasteurized, eliminating the risk of Salmonella in the eggs. Plus, they stay fresh longer. If you’ve been afraid to cook eggs for your kids sunny-side up because of the runny egg or if you avoid recipes calling for raw eggs (like Caesar salad), this is your solution. Woot!
Today we’ve got a few fun ideas for eggs that will have your kids smiling. And bonus: Most of these ideas are fun ways to sneak in other healthy foods, too!
