Making Breakfast “EGG-citing” in Your KES Club!

There are no KES Club menus that are exactly alike; every Club serves different menu items depending on their access and availability to food, kitchen resources, volunteer support and children’s preferences.  The basic breakfast at most of our KES Clubs usually includes toast, cereal, fruit, milk and juice.  Kids love a special breakfast, serving something different can be fun and exciting!

Serving eggs at our Clubs can sometimes be difficult, due to allergies, kitchen resources and volunteers.  It can be difficult to get protein choices for our Clubs and because eggs are such a great source of protein we love to see Clubs serve them.  If at all possible, we encourage you to make your KES Club menu more “egg-citing” and serve up some delicious egg recipes.  The recipe below will be a hit at any KES Club!

Mini Quiche with Peppers and Cheese

INGREDIENTS
6 large eggs
½ cup milk
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp black pepper
1 cup grated cheese
Peppers, diced

DIRECTIONS
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, garlic powder and pepper. Add cheese and peppers, mixing until fully combined. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Scoop out ¼ cup mixture into each muffin tin. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Recipe serves approximately 12 regular size muffins (use mini muffin tins to yield larger amount).
