Happy Children’s day!

Happy Children's day!

nigerian fried eggs and plantain

Today is children’s day in Nigeria and to commemorate the day #LohisCreations style I decided to take an everyday recipe and make it into cute treats for the kiddies.  It is also healthy which is one of my aims on this blog. I want to try and make Nigerian food as refined, healthy while not straying to far away therefore keeping it authentic! Today I took a childhood favorite of mine Plantains and eggs and made some good ol breakfast that is delicious (according to my friend Debola) yet refined!

Making this came to me while I was looking up quiche recipes and I thought *light bulb moment* how about I make a quiche-ish and add plantains! Good ol Nigerian breakfast! If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you would know I stopped frying my plantains a while ago, so all I did was grill some plantains, made the egg mixture, mixed them both, poured them into cupcake tins and these yumemrs where born! If you have also been reading this blog for a while, you would know I do not eat eggs(lol) So I got my friend to come and taste them and he willingly obliged! He loved em and I might add them to my appetizer menu for my business! Enjoy and have an amazing children’s day, Children are really the future and we have to start early implementing good eating habits for them so they can grow to be amazing and healthy members of society!
