We have a Montessori household. One of our lower kitchen cabinets is dedicated just to the kids, so they can independently set their own table for snacks and meals. The cabinet is fully stocked with their glasses (yes, real glass), plates, bowls, silverware, etc. They also have a small mixing bowl, a whisk and other small cooking tools made for child-sized hands. And kids aprons (which they can put on by themselves without help from Mom!) are always hanging from a hook in the kitchen.
What 2- and 4-year-old duo could resist a carton of eggs and using their own special mixing bowl and whisk? Not mine. Now with 6 scrambled eggs, I needed an eggy recipe that didn't require an extra trip to the market. Google: Crustless Quiche. 4 main ingredients: eggs, onion, cheese, spinach. Yes.
This crustless spinach quiche was a tasty success.
Crustless Spinach Quiche Recipe
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 5 eggs, beaten (I adjusted for 6 eggs)
- 3 cups shredded Muenster cheese (I used mozzarella & cheddar)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. Stir in spinach and continue cooking until excess moisture has evaporated.
- In a large bowl, combine eggs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add spinach mixture and stir to blend. Scoop into prepared pie pan.
- Bake in preheated oven until eggs have set, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Setup your Montessori kitchen and top it off with a Kids Apron from our shop. Have fun!
