Making Easter nest frittatas is a fun way to introduce ideas around healthy eating and food preparation, while exploring the traditions and stories of Easter. This activity can allow children to develop their teamwork and co-operation skills, while still being able to enjoy making a nest of their own.
Throughout cooking activities such as these , be sure to re-enforce the message of washing hands and using clean utensils at all time – promoting good food hygiene. Waiting in turn and being patient in an exercise such as this is key, and through waiting for adult assistance at times, children will be able to develop their skills in this area.
Ingredients for Six Easter Nest Frittatas
- 500g spaghetti cooked
- 6 eggs
- Grated Parmesan
- Chopped herbs / spinach (optional)
- Lettuce to garnish
- Begin by placing a muffin case in each of the muffin tray sections you wish to use. Fill each with an equal amount of cooked spaghetti, ensuring that you allow enough space in the case for the other ingredients.
- Crack an egg into a small mixing bowl, and use the fork to beat it until the yolk and egg combine. Add a little parmesan to the egg, and mix again.
- Pour the egg mix over the spaghetti in one of the cases, being careful not to spill any. Repeat this process for each nest.
- Top the nests with some chopped herbs or a little spinach.
- Bake at 180C for around 30 minutes, until the egg is cooked through and firm
- Once baked and cooled sufficiently, serve the frittatas with lettuce and enjoy!
