So who are we just parents to enforce the law and keep kids from eating their eggs for breakfast.
I mean, if it looks like breakfast and smells like breakfast (OK, maybe not, but you get where we’re going here), then they can definitely eat it first.
And you can’t chat with them while eating eggs and toast, or even full English.
Here are our five ideas for preparing breakfast with your Easter eggs. The warning cream eggs are quite heavy, so maybe hide yours if you don’t want them to be caught while the kids get creative.
Who doesn’t like soaked eggs and soldiers? Especially when your usual outdoor eggs have been replaced with the best in Cadbury.
Dig with your usual toast, or make your soldiers with French toast, or even crossed buns if you want to spice things up a bit. A nice sweet treat to start your Easter morning.
Boring cereals? Not this time, kid. Just use half the shell of an Easter egg as a bowl of cereal – a sharp knife will help here – and throw away their favorite.
For a party full of shock, opt for Coco Pops, or Weetos Chocolate Hoops, and brighten things up with a few mini eggs – be sure to chop them in half for the little ones.
Yogurt and fruit
It almost sounds healthy, doesn’t it? It’s not quite yogurt, but there is fruit.
Use an empty yogurt pot or a small dish and fill it with melted chocolate.
Chop fruits like strawberries and bananas and you have your own chocolate fondue for breakfast.
Well, it’s definitely a plate of sugar, but no one said you should eat it all at the same time.
You might want to eat the toast while it’s hot – we covered ours with melted milk – but any chocolate will do the trick.
Mini Mars bars for sausages, orange Smarties for beans and Rolos for mushrooms. We added a small Lindor egg to give an extra touch to the red tomato.
You can use even more chocolate for hash browns and black pudding, although I’m sure even the biggest chocoholics would find it hard to digest.
Cream egg toastie
It may not seem like the most appealing snack, but don’t hit it until you’ve tried it.
You can do this with your toaster and melt the cream eggs in the microwave, but ideally it’s best to do it in a toast machine or a frying pan, so that the gooey goodness can melt inside while the bread becomes crisp and golden on the outside.
You need at least two cream eggs on thick sliced bread for an ultimate toast oozing with chocolate and fondant.
We have warned you that cream eggs will be very present and here they are again.
This Cadbury Creme Egg pancake recipe from goodtoknow.co.uk, is a surefire success for food lovers at Easter.
So what do you need to make one?
- 3 Cadbury Creme eggs
- 225 ml milk, plus an additional 10 ml (2 tablespoons)
- 75g plain flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 C. 1 tbsp (15 ml) sunflower oil
Carefully cut the creamed eggs in half the seam and separate them. Using a teaspoon, scoop the “goo” and place it in a small saucepan (or place the “goo” in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high power for 10-20 seconds depending on the power of the microwave).
Break the milk chocolate shells into pieces, then place them in a small bowl with 125 ml of milk. Place the bowl on a pan of simmering water and stir until the chocolate and milk have melted together. Let cool slightly.
To make the pancakes, place the flour in a bowl, with the egg and the rest of the milk and chocolate milk, whisk together to form a dough.
Dip a piece of paper towel rolled up in the oil and rub on a pancake or 18 cm pancake pan, then heat over moderate heat. Pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of chocolate dough into the pan, tilting it so that the dough covers the base finely and evenly.
Bake for about 1 min or until the pancake is set and colored below. Loosen the edges with a palette knife, then flip the pancake or mix. Cook the second side for about 30 seconds or until just set.
Slide the pancake onto a plate, cover with parchment paper or aluminum foil and keep warm. Use the oil to cook the remaining dough in the same way, to make another 7 pancakes. Add each to the hot plate, overlapping with parchment paper.
Place the pan with the “goo” on a moderate heat with the 10 ml of milk, until it is melted. Try not to stir the mixture, gently shake the pan. To serve, fold the pancakes into triangles and pour the “goo” sauce on top.
