With busy schedules, breakfast could easily become a grab-and-go meal, often resulting in a poor nutrition balance. This simple kid-friendly breakfast, using our Sambal Egg Recipe, makes it not only easy to make for any mums and dads out there, but super fun for the little ones to devour. 

First, preheat your oven (180C), toaster, or best, air-fryer (160C)! Now find a mould that you can use to shape your wholemeal sampan. If you have a nice muffin cup, great! Otherwise, simply use a small soup bowl from your kitchen.

Shape Your Sampan

Place one slice of bread in each bowl, and press down lightly along the bottom and sides so it makes a little boat. Not too hard else the bread will become really tough. Imagine the strength you’re using when burping the babies – hard enough to get the air out, but not too hard that it gives them hiccups.


Next, pound the pumpkin seeds, mix in chia seeds and sprinkle about a quarter at the bottom.

Fill The Sampan

Crack open an egg and beat lightly with a fork or chopsticks. Please don’t use your fingers as raw eggs do carry a risk of salmonella poisoning!


One medium egg will allow you to fill both sampans. Be careful not to let it flow over the sides.


Plop the sampans into the oven, air-fryer, or toaster for 8 to 10 minutes. Use a spoon and slowly slot the sambal egg sampan out of the bowl. Do be careful when handling the bowls as they will be super hot.


Super nice and easy right?
