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.
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.
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.
Get the kids involved again – ask them to tear the ham into strips and place on top of the spinach.
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.
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.
While they’re cooking, get the children to toast some brown bread. Serve with the eggy pots.
