Kids Make Mini Crustless Ham & Broccoli Quiches

From cracking and whisking eggs to measuring/sprinkling/pouring ingredients, there are lots of easy tasks for kids to assist with these delicious quiches. There’s also something to be said about kids being more apt to make something that’s their size. Your kids will also LOVE it if you set up a yogurt-making station. Ours did!

While your kids are helping out, you can also pause to discuss which FOOD GROUP each ingredient belongs to and share some fun facts about this meal’s featured ingredient: EGGS.
