A word about allergies

This recipe contains eggs and cow's milk. Some kids have food allergies and food related anaphylaxis. Common food allergens include peanuts and tree nuts (such as cashews and walnuts), sesame, egg, cow's milk, shellfish , fish and soy. Food allergies can develop at any time.

It is important in managing allergies to avoid exposure to known allergens. Parents should check the ingredients before using a recipe and remind their kids not to share food from their lunchbox.  

Sometimes a school may request that certain foods not be brought to school. Check with your principal if you are unsure.
