Nellie’s Free Range Eggs ~ Get Into The Kitchen With Your Kids This June For “Nellie’s Summer School”

Summer is so close that my kids can practically taste it!  We are winding down with school and they’ve already began to spend the majority of waking hours outside, as long as the sun is shining.  I have to admit that it’s been a welcomed change to the busy schedule of the school year and daily routine of school days.  But with the summer break, kids don’t have to completely check out.  There are still lots of fun ways to get some hands on learning during break, including taking part in “Nellie’s Summer School” this June.

Sending a big thank you to Nellie’s Free Range Eggs for partnering with me on this post!

If you’re not familiar with Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, take a minute to watch this informative video.  You’ll find that Nellie’s is committed to providing better lives for hens and also better eggs for you and your family!

Eggs are an easy to use food that are nutrient dense and very versatile.  Whether looking for a meal or snack idea, Nellie’s is here to help with eggs from their girls who are never caged and have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want.

So this June, take your kiddos and head to your kitchen with a carton of Nellie’s Free Range Eggs and create some egg-centric recipes for your family to enjoy.  Be sure to consider all the fun options that eggs can provide!

Scrambled Eggs:  Nellie’s Eggs, Splash Of Milk, Splash of Vanilla.  Whisk together, season with salt and pepper, and then fry over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Egg Sandwich:  Fry up 2-3 Nellie’s Eggs and top with your favorite toppings (such as Mushrooms, Peppers, Onions, & Cheese), sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve between two pieces of toast.

Egg Scramble Muffin Bakes:  Follow the Scrambled Eggs Recipe above and then spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Pour egg scramble into each tin until 1/2 full.  Top with diced peppers and onions, salt and pepper,  and a little shredded cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Top with additional shredded cheese and then finish baking until eggs are thoroughly cooked, typically about 10 more minutes.

As usual, our kiddos had a blast helping me in the kitchen.  All five love to help dump, mix, add, stir, pour, and whatever else they can do along the way.  I love how eager they are to help and the fact that they are learning life skills along the way.

Do you know any children who would love to take the “Nellie’s Summer School” Challenge with you and get busy in the kitchen?

I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.

    It is so great for kids to help prepare meals. They learn a lot. What it takes and how to make real food.

    Free range eggs really do have health benefits over the standard eggs. For one thing, the color is much improved, meaning the nutrition is as well. I actually buy free range eggs from local farms, right in the local grocery store!

    Oh this is great. I actually have 3 store near me that carry them. I will be getting some this weekend. Thank you for letting me know about them.

    I love Nellies eggs, I buy them often! I love having my kiddos help me in the kitchen too, they all else enjoy it so much! 🙂 We have never made egg muffins before though, I definitely need to try that sometime. Thanks for sharing!

    Kids learn so much from cooking! Besides a life skill, they learn math by measuring, following directions and so much more. It looks like your kids really enjoy it. I dont think I have seen this brand of eggs, but do buy from a local lady who free ranges.

    Scrambled Eggs: Nellie’s Eggs, Splash Of Milk, Splash of Vanilla.

    I have NEVER heard or saw anyone use vanilla in scrambled eggs. But you know I am going to try it using one egg to see if I like it. Might give it a great different taste.

    I like this brand of eggs, we had them and they were so fresh and the taste was fantastic. There are so many recipes you can make with eggs.

    These eggs are so much better. I find that the yolks are a brighter yellow and they stand up much better. Thank you so much for sharing this product
