Dilly Egg and Oats

Starting up a new series close to my heart and story of my life in the past few years – home made baby food! All day err day – you bet. Or to be honest, atleast two times a day.

So here’s one of my go to recipe for baby / toddler brekkie! Quick, simple and can be adapted for any stage of weaning your baby is in.

After you have introduced: Egg yolk / whole egg and oats separately

Stage 1: include egg yolk / whole egg , oats, dill

Stage 2: include egg yolk / whole egg, oats, dill, cheese (cheddar / mozarella / parmesan)

This is also the perfect way to feed egg to you baby. When I tried other methods, I found that boiled yolk is too dry and the whites are quite chunky. Even stirred and poached egg is quite watery. Problem solved with the addition of oats – another breakfast favorite! That being said, its absolutely great any time of the day.

Instructions
  1. Heat about 1/2 cup of water. Just before it starts boiling, add the egg / eggyolk and stir vigorously to break it into small pieces. As the water comes to a boil, the egg should be well cooked by now.
  2. Add the oats and keep it on a low flame till cooked. Add a little more water if necessary.
  3. Season with dill and add the cheese if using, stir and turn off the heat.
  4. For a younger baby: Blend till smooth and feed. For the next stage: Leave it a bit chunky. If the egg was stirred vigorously as it cooked, there shouldnt be much of chunks in there. Enjoy the cheese, eggy, dilly, oatmeal!
