Easy Broccoli and Cheese Frittata Recipe + #Giveaway

Broccoli and cheese frittata is just one of the meals I have taught my son to cook. As a mom to a soon to be a college student, I have been trying to teach my son some kitchen skills. I wanted to know that he could feed himself when he left home and not rely strictly on Ramen and take out. The best part of this adventure is the memories we made together while learning a necessary skill.

So when Nellie’s asked me to talk about cooking with kids this summer I was happy to help because I knew the joy it had brought me. Plus the eggs taste amazing.

Learning More

Summer is so close we can taste it! And while “summer school” often gets a bad rap, Nellie’s Free Range Eggs wants parents and kids to get into the kitchen and prepare delicious egg-centric recipes during its own “Nellie’s Summer School” this June.

 If you’re not already familiar, Nellie’s is committed to providing better lives for hens, which means better eggs for you and your family! Coming from the first Certified Humane® farm in the country, Nellie’s girls (aka hens) are never caged and have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want. 

 Easy to prepare, inexpensive and nutrient-dense, eggs are one of the most versatile and nutritious meals or snack options around. Plus, they’re a great first food to get kids into the kitchen and interested in cooking at an early age.

  1. So fun too cook..bake with the kiddos..it’s a way to. Keep our family traditions..going..very southern…to start standing in a chair next to grandma..kike I did.
    Everything..starting with biscuits.

  2. My two sons are very good cooks. They have been cooking since they were little. I think they realized that I am not the greatest cook and if they wanted good food they needed to learn how to cook. Now they plan meals and what groceries they need have unfortunately they don’t like to clean up afterwards. It is the least that I can do.

  3. My daughters are still learning to cook and bake. They like to make a chicken dish that I cook with veggies and pasta. They do an excellent job.

  4. I taught my daughter how to bake and my son how to cook. She decorates and bakes cakes for a living now and my son works at a restaurant. I guess my helping them paid off.

  5. one dish my granddaughter loves to eat and make is a simple hot dish of hamburger, rice, soup and soy sauce

  6. My daughter’s only three, so right now our cooking together is confined to topping pizza or adding ingredients to omelettes.

  7. My daughter is 17 and I have always encouraged her to help me in the kitchen she likes to cook and can make just about anything now.

  8. I taught my kids how to make their own breakfast. Eggs or pancakes. They are 12& 14 and can use the stove.

  9. I would love to teach my kids to make my Bologna gravy over eggs. They love eating it now they need to learn how to make it

  10. My son and I like to make pasta salads and baked goods together. Thanks.

  11. Right now my daughter is all about the desserts! She loves trying brownies with all sorts of different toppings!

  12. My son’s love to grill with their father. I would love to teach them to make some other dishes like salads and vegetables to go with their grilled entrees.

  13. My older ones make spaghetti, and eggs but I’d love for them to learn the rest of the recipes like chicken, teriyaki, rice, and other basics so I don’t have to cook all the time.

  14. I let my children help me make all meals but my son especially loves Making fried rice and my daughter loves homemade Mac and cheese.

  15. We do tons of dessert baking so maybe I’d love to learn some type of pasta dish, something different!

  16. Hi there! I was the lucky winner, but had a question about the prize pack, and have not heard back from you! I would love to get in contact.
