Lazy Eggs Brunch by Luke (Aged 8)

My son is very interested in cooking, but I want him to learn about more than just making cakes. So when he suggested this easy egg recipe, I was very keen for him to have a go. The beauty of it is that he can make it more or less independently. It's very cheap, with just four ingredients, so would make
a perfect nutritious meal for a student who is learning to cook.

 These are all the ingredients you need. Plus a little basil for the tomatoes and some oil for the muffin tray. To begin, preheat oven to 180C.

Slice the tomatoes in half (easy to do with a dinner knife, for little people!), and arrange them, sliced side up, on a baking tray. 

Sprinkle with a little Basil, or experiment with other herbs, Oregano works well. and bake in the oven for around twenty minutes. (You can add the eggs in a bit.)

Next, brush a muffin tray generously with oil. Then line the tray with a slice of ham.

Crack an egg into a mug then pour carefully into each hammy basket, so they look something like this...

These take around ten minutes to cook, so hopefully you can add them in with the tomatoes for the remaining cooking time... and wait... (watching the oven is optional!)

Remove from oven and look very pleased with yourself! Breakfast is served!
