Saturday BONUS: Grouch's Breakfast (breakfast for toddlers)

This recipe is the grouch's breakfast, because you SCRAM-ble the eggs. It comes from the Sesame Street Silly Snack: Cooking with kids cookbook.

2 tsp. butter
1 small zucchini, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
2 eggs
2 Tbs. shredded Cheddar or grated Parmesan cheese (we used cheddar)
1/4 tsp. salt

*steps that the book suggests kids help out with are in bold red font.

Step One:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a small (8 inch) nonstick ovenproof skillet. Add the zucchini. Cook and stir over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until the zucchini is crisp-tender.

Step Two:
In the meantime, SCRAM-ble the eggs in a small bowl with a fork. Add the cheese and salt and SCRAM-ble them in, too.

Step Three:
Turn the heat to low and add the egg mixture to the skillet with the zucchini. Stir gently, then cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes or until the eggs begin to set around the edges.

Step Four:
Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the eggs are set.

Step Five:
Cut the pie in half, then into quarters with a plastic knife.

Note to moms: My kids loved this recipe and would have eaten the whole thing by themselves if I let them. You might want to triple the recipe. ;0)
