How To Make An Omelet Your Kids Will Love (Recipe)

Eggs, the breakfast of champions, at least for my 2 year old. Anyone who has kids knows how difficult it can be to cook for them, especially little ones. Once they turn 2 they become so finicky that cooking can be a nightmare for any parent.

Usually I spend my days fighting with my daughter at meal times to even eat, unless I make eggs. Omelets are her absolute favorite breakfast food, it's the one meal I can count on. That and bacon, you can never go wrong with bacon.

It's taken me a while to perfect my craft, I have been making her eggs for quite some time, switching out ingredients trying new things until I found something she liked. Here is what I have come up with, the perfect kid friendly omelet:


1 egg
1 piece of turkey bacon
1/8 tsp of Parsley
1/8 tsp of no salt seasoning (I buy mine at Costco but something like Mrs. Dash works great too)
3 pinches of grated cheddar cheese or any other cheese your child likes (I say pinches because if you use too much cheese it is going to make it difficult to cook evenly)
A pinch of garlic salt
Optional Ingredients:

A pinch of salt
A pinch of black pepper


1.) In a small bowl beat 1 egg with a fork for about a minute or two. Add cheese, and seasonings. Mix well so the ingredients are distributed evenly.

2.) Cook the turkey bacon in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, you want it to be slightly undercooked because it will finish cooking in the pan. 

3.) Tear the bacon into tiny pieces and mix into the egg mixture. Transfer egg mixture to a small greased pan and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes.

4.) Your egg should look like this when it's ready to flip. Using a spatula flip to one side so the egg looks like a half circle. Continue cooking for about a minute then flip the egg over to the other side and cook for another minute.

5.) Remove from heat and let it cool for about 2 minutes, then plate and serve.
