What mom doesn’t love an easy, quick nutritious weeknight dinner recipe that her kids actually eat? I can tell you that as a mom of three little ones, I’m all about easy and quick, and as a dietitian, I appreciate nutritious, real, whole food ingredients that take no time to throw together for a meal that my family loves.
Not to mention leftovers–that’s a big bonus too! And I’ve figured out the secret to making this happen…
And this secret isn’t earth shattering, surprising, or new, especially if you’re a frequent reader of my blog and follower of my recipes–there are many many egg recipes on this site (check out my kids top favourite egg recipes).
I love cooking with eggs at dinner because they’re so versatile and easy to work with, they’re loaded full of protein and other important nutrients such as iron and vitamin B-12 — all important for growth and development as well as general health. Also, I always have them on hand, so I’m not rushing around at the last minute, grocery shopping or defrosting meat. Because what’s worse than coming home at 5:30pm and having to defrost frozen meat or chicken before making a meal?!
This recipe is one of our go-to weeknight meals, not only because I can throw it together in less than 30 minutes, but also because everyone devours it (and bonus: there’s leftovers for the next day). I like to get my kids involved – the egg cracking is their favourite!
It also makes a great Sunday brunch for a crowd. Pair it with salsa, sour cream and guacamole and your guests won’t be able to get enough.
To add even more nutrition to this meal, I included lentil (I use canned and just rinse thoroughly–remember, we’re making this EASY!), veggies and whole grain tortilla wraps.

It’s good for morning brackfast, because it’s very easy to make in the morning.
