It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday so get the kids involved, kitted out with their PVC aprons and chef hats and start baking! We’ve found a couple of recipes you could try to help ensure your mum can put her feet up for the day and get pampered.
Baked Dippy Eggs (simple recipe, ideal for kids to make):
1 Large slice of ham
8 Small spinach leaves
8 Cherry tomatoes
4 slices of toast
- Ask a grown up helper to switch on the oven to 180c/gas mark 4.
- Cut ham & spinach into strips and share between the ramekins.
- Squash the cherry tomatoes into a bowl using your fingers. Add a small amount to each ramekin dish.
- Break the eggs one at a time into a separate bowl (scoop out any shell) and then tip carefully into the dish on top of the spinach and ham. Repeat with the 3 other eggs.
- Grate and sprinkle a little bit of cheese on top of the egg.
- Put in oven for 15-18 minutes (get a grown up to help).
- While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread and butter. Then cut into soldiers.
- Serve in bed with orange juice.
