How To Make Rainbow Scrambled Eggs In A Hole - Easy Recipe for Toddlers & Kids

Updated on October 15, 2013

Rainbow Scrambled Eggs In A Hole Recipe

This recipe is my kid twist on an adult classic : egg in a hole. Kids don't typically like the runny yolk in the center of a traditional egg in a hole. Your child will love this fun colorful activity. I find that my toddler is more interested in the foods that I serve when I involve him in the cooking process. Julius enjoyed adding the food colors to the mayonnaise, painting the toast, and eating the finished product. I hope that your child enjoys this rainbow scrambled eggs in a hole recipe as much as we did.

Instructions

  1. To start, we will make the edible paint-able food color. Put a teaspoon of mayonnaise in four separate bowls. Put a few drops of one color (red, for example) in one bowl. Then, put another color (blue, for example) in another bowl. Repeat this step until all four bowls have a few drops of different food color in each. Mix each bowl to blend the colors evenly with the mayonnaise..
  2. Now, we're ready to paint. Remove the center hole from the bread with the top of a small cup or shot glass that is about 1 & 1/2 inches in diameter. Place the piece of bread on a sheet of wax paper for your child. Provide your child with a paint brush or small basting brush. The brush that my son used in this video was for brushing butter onto corn. Place a dime size amount of one color at a time on the toast for your child to paint on the bread. We wiped our paint brush off between colors so that they did not mix.
  3. After your child decorates both sides of the bread, set it aside. Now we'll prep the eggs. Scramble the eggs and add the remaining mayonnaise colors one at a time. Stir the mixture a few times, but don't over-mix. You want each color to stand out like a rainbow and not combine completely.
  4. Next, place the bread in a skillet set to medium heat. It is not necessary to add butter or oil to the pan because the mayonnaise will prevent the toast from sticking. Add some of the scrambled egg mixture to the center ring in a thin layer. Reserve the rest of the eggs for the second piece of toast and scrambled eggs on the side. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. It's done when both sides are slightly crispy.
  5. Cook the second piece of toast in the same manner. Finally, put the remaining egg mixture in the pan to make the scrambled eggs. Cook on medium low heat for about 4 or 5 minutes. Stir the eggs with a fork into bite size pieces. To assemble, place a piece of the rainbow toast on your child's plate, followed by the rainbow scrambled eggs in the center of the toast (or on the side) and the center rainbow bread hole. Enjoy! :-)

We added a few drops, maybe five or six, of color to the mayonnaise. Add as much or less food color as you like.

Julius wanted to taste the mayonnaise after we added the food colors, but he quickly found out that... well... it was just mayonnaise. LoL :-)

Adding colored mayonnaise to the scrambled eggs.

I had to help Julius stir the colored mayonnaise into the scrambled eggs, at this point. Because the colored mayonnaise does not dissolve he found it difficult to incorporate.

Adding colorful scrambled eggs to the center ring.

Add just enough colored scrambled eggs to the center of the toast to complete the ring. The mixture will run a little bit, so make sure the pan is hot before you do this step.

Cook 3 - 4 minutes on each side or until crispy.

Cook 3 - 4 minutes on each side or until crispy.

The finished product is best when served crispy, so try to cook until both sides are thoroughly crispy. We cooked ours for 3-4 minutes on each side. You may cook yours for more or less time.

This is the standard scrambled eggs, just with the food colored mayonnaise added. Cook for a few minutes and then scoop up the bottom and turn the eggs over to cook on the other side additional few minutes. I like to chop my eggs into bite size pieces for my child.
