(h)eggy brekkie pots Great British Chef TESCO

These eggy pots are a great way to start the day, and the kids can get involved along the way. Asking kids to help make the pots is a fantiastic way to get them to be less fussy if they normally turn their noses up at tomatoes or spinach.

  1. Ask the children to lightly crush the cherry tomatoes, with a fork, in a mixing bowl and then to distribute evenly in the bottom of 4 ramekins.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Add the spinach and cook for about 1 minute before spooning the wilted spinach into the ramekins over the tomatoes.
  3. Get the kids involved again – ask them to tear the ham into strips and place on top of the spinach.
  4. Crack 1 egg into each of the ramekins and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Finally sprinkle some grated cheese over the top.
  5. Cook in an oven set to Gas Mark 3, 160°C, fan 140°C for 10-15 minutes, or until the egg whites have set.
  6. While they’re cooking, get the children to toast some brown bread. Serve with the eggy pots.
