My youngest brother and his new wife were visiting from out west and we had a party. I contributed strawberry shortcake and we had leftovers. Do you have any idea how rare it is to have leftovers from dessert for over 20 people? Dessert leftovers call for celebration...which meant eating some for breakfast after a bite of protein, in the form of an original breakfast.
They were more than happy to gobble down some basic soft boiled eggs in exchange for dessert in the morning!
:: Simple Soft Boiled Eggs::
1-2 eggs per person
Using your smallest pot, cover eggs with cold water. Cook over high heat 'til a rolling boil begins. Set your timer for 3 minutes. At the end of 3 minutes, remove pot from heat, carefully pour out hot water and add cold water to cover. This stops the cooking and keeps the egg soft.
Crack the top off, salt and enjoy!
As far as the strawberry shortcake - I recommend doubling whatever recipe you make this spring, then dessert for breakfast is automatically on your menu plan. I doubt your kid-power will have any problem devouring it!
