Mashed Egg and Yogurt

  • On a cutting board, place the hard-boiled egg yolk and the yogurt. Using the back of a fork, mash the two together until completely incorporated. You can leave it chunky or mash until smooth. Serve with a baby spoon or a self-feeding spoon for baby-led weaning.

Scrambled Eggs

  • In a small bowl, add in the eggs and yogurt. Going in only one direction, whisk the mixture with a fork. Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add in butter and let it melt. When it is bubbling, add in the whisked eggs and let the 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.

Egg and Avocado on Toast

  • On a cutting board, place the hard-boiled egg or just the yolk and avocado. Using the back of a fork, mash the two together until completely incorporated. You can leave chunky or smooth depending on preference. Scoop the mixture up with the fork and place on the end of a piece of toast. Hand baby the dry side of the toast.

Banana + Egg Pancakes

  • In a medium bowl, mash the banana until very smooth with only a few lumps. Add in the flour, egg and a pinch of cinnamon (optional). Mix with a fork or whisk, mix until everything is combined. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray or add a little butter, if needed. Drop one tablespoon of batter on the skillet and let cook for 3-4 minutes or until the sides are starting to become firm and the bottoms are golden brown. You will not see any bubbles like traditional pancakes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

Egg Roll-Ups

  • Preheat a small non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Spray the skillet or grease with 1/2 teaspoon of oil or butter. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Spoon half of the egg mixture into the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the eggs (if using), cover the pan with a lid, and cook for 2 more minutes. Using a spatula, carefully slid the flat egg onto a cutting board. Let cool slightly for 1-2 minutes but no more or the egg will be too cool to roll. Starting on one side of the egg disc, start rolling the egg as tightly as you can until completely rolled up. Place seam side down and let cool slightly. As it cools, the egg roll-up will hold it’s shaped. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining egg mixture. Cut one egg roll in half and serve to baby.

Broccoli Egg Cups

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line 8 muffin tins with silicone muffin molds or generously spray to prevent sticking. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Add in the broccoli and cheese and stir until combined. Pour the egg mixture into the muffin tins until 3/4 the way full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until eggs have set and the cheese is golden brown.
