Egg Facts: Eggs Cooking Lesson
A fun idea for an egg cooking lesson is to teach kids a variety of cooking methods with
eggs. Teach them how to boil eggs, fry eggs, poach eggs,
scramble eggs, make an omelet and even blend eggs into a meringue.
Then have them taste test each variety, (except the meringue)
and decide what their favorite type of egg is. If you have a larger
class have them graph the results. Use your cooking skills and
create a recipe for our egg

1/2 stick butter
1 spoonful salsa (if desired)
How to make it:
Crack the eggs on a flat surface; such as the kitchen counter.
Place the eggs in a medium-size bowl.
Use a fork to check for shells. If there is, get a spoon to bring it
out. Next, stir the eggs with fork.
Make sure it's all yellow and not clear. Then, get a small or
medium-size pan. Crank the heat to 4 or 5 and put the butter in.
Make sure when you melt the butter, spin the pan around to fill the
pan. Once that's done, pour the egg carefully in the pan.
Wait about 30 seconds til' you stir it again. Then after it have
been 1 or 2 minutes, stir the egg and slice or break it into pieces.
Once your parents/guardian says it's ready to take out, place on a
