The cool thing about cooking is that it’s transferable from generation to generation. I learned to cook at a very early age, and I’m still learning! In this video, we are cooking a waffle breakfast with a little skill and a lot of love. Your kids can become independent cooks who will be cooking for you one day. They have all kinds of potential, they just need some guidance. Watch this with your own kids and get in the kitchen together!
Ingredients You Will Need:
For directions, check out our video description!
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch, or your kid’s favorite cereal
- Waffle mix (we used Krusteaz)
- Pre-cooked bacon
- Vegetable Oil
- Salt and Pepper
– A great first meal kids can practice is how to make scrambled eggs. Cracking the eggs in a separate bowl before you add to a skillet or other ingredients will make it easier to keep out eggshells.
– Crushing up your favorite cereal to add to the waffle batter is a fun job kids of any age can help with.
– For obvious reasons, younger kids should not operate a waffle iron alone. Older siblings or an adult can help with that part.
– Pre-cooked bacon is a much easier & safer for kids to cook – no popping grease!
– Waffle toppings don’t have to be syrup. Try your favorite yogurt, peanut butter, jam, fresh fruit or apple sauce.
– Cleaning up is part of cooking. Find ways kids can help with that part too!
