Guy & Leo’s Ham & Egg Cups

Including small kids in meal preparation is a great way to pass on healthy eating habits and to foster a sense of family. Leo loves to watch and help us cook (and has always loved to crack eggs), so this is a great recipe for him.

Guy helps him line muffin tins with sliced ham, add cheese, crack an egg into each cup, and top with halved cherry tomatoes. The cups bake for 20 minutes and are a delicious breakfast.

(Kids may prefer that their eggs be scrambled in the cups.)

Raised Waffles

My genius team realized how easy (and amazing) it was to pull together a waffle bar at work. Some people brought batter, some brought waffle irons, some brought toppings, and they served fresh waffles all morning.

The batter for these yeast-based waffles rises on the counter overnight – in the morning, just beat in the eggs and baking soda, and cook on the waffle iron.

These waffles are light, fluffy, crispy, and delicious.

Yield: 8 waffles Total time: Overnight
Cocktails
