They may not be first-class chefs, but Stuart police officers are taking the time to teach children cooking skills. 

On the menu, breakfast!

The group whipped up omelets and sausage, then took a lesson in table manners. 

It's part of an initiative called "Cooking with a Cop."  

"If I can get to know the kids and they can get to know me, they'll learn to trust me and understand that I'm just like them. I grew up in the same neighborhood some of these kids grew up in," said Officer Joe Hogan.

During the next "Cooking with a Cop" kids will pick up lunch menu to cook.
