I found this great recipe for Breakfast Pizzas that I had to share. It’s low on calories but big on flavor. It’s a perfect recipe for kids in the kitchen, with a little help from mom or dad whisking and scrambling the eggs, kids can take charge on toasting and assembly. Take a deep breath – I know you imagine ingredients all over the floor and maybe even on the walls. But with a little bit of attention, the quality time you will spend with your child will be fun and productive, not disastrous.
2 whole wheat English muffins,
split and lightly toasted
