In my experience, and according to the adults I interviewed for this, kids leap at the chance to crack eggs, and cooking them is one of the first stovetop dishes many want to try. One of the first things Epi's Anna Stockwell mastered as a youngster was the classic egg-in-a-hole , while scrambled was how food writer Matthew Amster-Burton declared his kitchen independence in elementary school, as did his now-teenage daughter Iris when she was around the same age. Also, even if you overcook a scrambled egg , you can still eat it.
They're very forgiving in that aspect," says Nathan Sears, executive chef of Chicago's theWit Hotel and dad of Nolan, 7, and Elijah, 6.
Nolan Sears appears to be on the right path. A few weeks ago, he made his favorite egg tacos entirely by himself for breakfast: scrambling the eggs, warming the tortillas in the microwave, and topping the whole thing with ketchup and cheese while his dad drank coffee and Instagrammed the occasion. Speaking of cheese and tortillas, or any form of bread, quesadillas and grilled cheese sandwiches are no-brainers. Graham's son was 9 when he started making his own quesadillas.
It's still his go-to meal. Once kids are at the point of boiling water for boxed mac and cheese no shame in that!

Skeptical about that last one? Granted, he supervised and did the homework in advance, calling on his buddy Jeff Michaud of Osteria in Philadelphia for advice and an easy dough recipe of basically semolina flour and water. Still, he says, once he got the dough going, Avery kneaded it the rest of the way and rolled and shaped 75 percent of the cavatelli herself. Check his Instagram feed for proof! Your kid has proven himself with a knife, a cutting board, and a hot stove, and there's leftover rice in the fridge.
Fried rice it is. As the Epi test kitchen knows, it's one of the most adaptable dishes out there. Tsai's quickest version, the one he fed his two boys and that, no surprise, his older son, David, 17, first learned on his own, is four ingredients: leftover rice, diced smoked lunch meat "smoked is key because it adds great flavor" , garlic oil, and tamari.

His son now knows that minced garlic, sliced scallions, ground meat or another protein, and vegetables make it even better. It's like a slice of pizza," says Tsai.
