Tips for cooking with Rad-Kids: 

 This recipe provides a great opportunity to teach kids how to crack eggs!  Use the following technique: 

Crack-Push-Pull: Hold the egg using two hands. Crack it gently on the inside of the bowl. Push your thumbs into the crack and pull the egg apart, allowing the egg to drop into the bowl. Throw your shell into a waste bin right away (don’t set it on the counter). Wash your hands with soap and water.
