PARTNER POST: We’ve teamed up with Bonne Maman to bring you the best homemade breakfast and brunch recipes to show Mom you care this Mother’s Day and all spring long.
Check out this recipe for nourishing, easy baked frittatas that even the kids could make for Mom on Mother’s Day.
If there is one thing that I enjoy just as much as cooking myself, it’s seeing kids cook in the kitchen. It brings me joy to see children not only enjoy cooking but finding delight in serving the food that they’ve made to those they love most.
If a child starts a dish with me and loses interest half-way through, that’s okay. I’ve come to recognize that just like short lessons keep a child’s attention in our homeschool, quick and easy recipes are best for younger children and as they grow in attention, which usually comes with age, longer recipes with more involved techniques can be made.
I keep it simple so that my children enjoy cooking with Mama.
With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to teach my 4-year-old a simple baked frittata breakfast served with a buttery croissant spread with apricot preserves that she can make on her own (with Dad’s help) for my special day. Who knows, it’s so enjoyable to watch a pre-schooler cook, I may just make them with my Little Mama on Mother’s Day. I can’t think of a better gift.
This recipe is made for pre-schoolers in mind but my big kids like to make them too.
While the eggs are baking, help your child cut the croissant in half and have them slather it with rich butter and Bonne Maman apricot preserves. Bonne Maman makes beautiful preserves I’m more than happy to serve to my family. Produced in France, they are Non-GMO Project Verified, have no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial coloring, and no preservatives added. My kind of preserves.
