Mother's Day Egg Scramble

This recipe brings scrambled eggs to a whole new level of yummy! Depending on the age and kitchen skills of your child, it may require a little help from another adult for cooking and slicing, but, for the most part, the kiddos should be able to measure the ingredients, whisk the eggs, and chop the herbs (tip: use a clean pair of safety scissors instead of a knife).
