Moons over my Hammy - Easy and Healthy Recipe for Play Dates

Not only do play dates help toddlers learn to interact and share, they give stay at home moms, even those with actual work at home jobs, a chance to engage in adult conversation, and feel less isolated.

Serving food on play dates takes some thought. Meals or snacks must be quick, because toddler-chasing gets busy. Also, it is important to make healthy meals for kids.

Yesterday, two mamas brought their toddlers over for a play date, allowing me to show off an easy to make recipe for lunch. Moons over my hammy sandwiches, a protein-rich fusion of eggs, cheese and ham, made healthy meals for kids and adults.

Yummy and easy - recipe both kids and adults will enjoy.

Because both mamas liked their sandwiches so much, I decided to share this easy lunch sandwich recipe with everyone.

Moons over my Hammy

Healthy Meals for Kids and Adults 


  • 1 stick of mozerella string cheese
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 - 4 slices of ham
  • 2 slices of wheat toast
  • 2 tbl spoons of butter
  • Salt

Step 1

Cut string cheese into bite-sized bits.

Step 2

Crack eggs into a bowl. Add string cheese. Add a pinch of salt

Step 3

Butter a flat pan. Toast bread.

Step 4

Take toasted bread out.

Melt more butter in the pan. Pour eggs in.

Step 5

When one side is fully cooked. Flip eggs over, top with American cheese.

Step 6

When the other side of the eggs is fully cooked, and the cheese on top is melted, take eggs out and lay it on the bread.

Grill ham in the pan for 10 - 20 seconds.

Step 7

Top eggs with ham.


Looks juicy. Tastes even better.
