The kid has always been a picky eater! When she was a toddler, she ate everything! But one day, poof! She suddenly refused to eat her favorite foods. She only wanted plain white rice and nothing else!
We had such a difficult time trying to figure out how to coax her into eating again. But her pediatrician said not to force her to eat because she could be traumatized so we let her set the pace even as we tried to convince her to eat more.
The good news is things got better. Years passed and little by little she ate more and more. Still, the kid is not adventurous at all. But at least she will try new foods and decide if she is okay with it – it used to be she decided first that she didn’t like it!
Anyway, one of the foods that she absolutely did not like is the EGG! It didn’t matter what kind or how it was cooked, she refused to eat eggs.
That is, until I made a savory “french toast”…
First, beat an egg with a pinch of salt and pepper in a wide bowl. Heat a non-stick frying pan (with a little butter).
Then butter a piece of bread and place 2 thin slices of farmers meatloaf, and pile on a piece of toast cheese. Top with another slice of bread. Flatten slightly. Dip the sandwich in the beaten egg; make sure both sides have been dipped in the egg mixture.
Place the sandwich in the pan and cook about a minute on one side and another minute on the other side, until both sides are lightly browned. (while the sandwich is in the pan, I use the spatula to flatten the sandwich a bit more).
Slice the sandwich into 2 triangles. Enjoy while the sandwich is hot!
