This recipe can be adjusted to everything your family likes. The key is to make all of the ingredients ahead , store them in the fridge then put them together in the morning with a quick zap in the microwave and breakfast is warm and ready to when you are. Sometimes I will warm the sandwich at home, wrap in tin foil and it is ready and warm to eat when I am!
I also like this as my soon to be 17 year old can make it without a single complaint and I am happy he is getting a good breakfast.
4 slices of white American cheese
Your choice of meat: Bacon, ham, or sausage (can also use turkey bacon, ham or sausage)
Cook your choice of meat until cooked through
Pan fry the eggs…when the eggs are almost done top with cheese and finish cooking.
At this point I store the eggs in one container and the meat in a separate container and store in the fridge .
In the morning, toast your bagel (or if you are like my husband) place the egg and cheese on one half of the bagel, add your choice of meat, place the top on the bagel and microwave no more than 30 seconds depending on your microwave. Serve or wrap in foil until ready.
9 inch pie crust (I use frozen one)
1 cup of cubed ham
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup of whipped cream cheese
1/3 cup of finely diced sweet onion (any onion you have would be fine)
4 large eggs
2 cups heavy cream
2 dashes of red pepper flakes (more or less to your taste, we like a bit of heat)
1 cup asparagus – roasted
1 or maybe 2 slices of cooked bacon (optional) one for the quiche, one for the dog whatever works for you!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roast your asparagus. I do this under the broiler. I toss the asparagus in a small amount of olive oil, salt and pepper and then cut into 1/2 inch pieces. You can cut the asparagus prior to roasting. Layer your pie crust with onion, ham, roasted asparagus and bacon (if your using it). Top with your Swiss cheese. Whisk eggs, cream, salt, pepper, cream cheese and the red pepper flakes together in a medium size bowl until combined. Pour egg mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes COVERED with foil.
Remove foil and cook for 10-15 more minutes until set. Remove from oven and let it rest 10 minutes before slicing.
Bake on a baking sheet covered in foil making clean up easy if there is an overflow. At my house that happens more often than not as I don’t always like to measure!
If you want to make it look even prettier…roast a few extra pieces of asparagus but don’t cut them, leave them whole and when you take the foil off after cooking for 45 minutes lay the whole roasted asparagus on top of the quiche in a circular design and continue that last 10-15 minutes until set.
Adding roasted red peppers would also be a nice colorful addition.
1 cup of pure honey
1 organic lemon
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Mix the honey and cinnamon together in a small mason jar.
Slice 2 or 3 rounds of the lemon and slice those in half .
Add the lemon into your jar and mix well.
This will stay fresh in your fridge for long time. You can also add more ingredients into the jar as you need it! This is great added to a cup of warm tea, but I like it all by itself…one teaspoon at a time!
NOTE: after this is mixed and in the fridge it will go from thick to thin and syrupy, this is normal!
Well, the weather outside is frightful and I am not going anyplace warm soon, so what is the next best thing? TROPICAL GRANOLA of course!!! This is a favorite of family, friends, neighbors and workplace co-workers!
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
2 1/2 cups bran flakes cereal
3 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
2 1/2 cups sliced almonds
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup dried pineapple
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup dried mango
1/2 dried papaya
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, whisk brown sugar and salt into butter until mixture is blended smooth and sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. In a large bowl combine oats, flake cereal, coconut, almonds and cinnamon. mix well. Stir in vanilla extract into butter and sugar. Pour butter mixture over dry ingredients and mix until combined. All dry ingredients should be coated with butter mixture. Divide granola between the two baking sheets, spreading it into an even layer. Bake for 30 minutes. Stir granola, rotate pans and bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes until granola is golden. WATCH CAREFULLY during the last ten minutes as the granola can burn easily at this point. Pour granola into large mixing bowl and stir in all of your dried fruit. Chop fruit if necessary. Let cool at room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Serve with your favorite yogurt! As you can see from the above image, this granola does not last long in my house!
Nothing can be more simpler than a recipe with only 3 ingredients! You heard me right…ONLY 3 ingredients. But to make this even better, this recipe is BAKED, not fried, and still full of flavor! Not much is better than that!
1 package of egg roll wrappers
1 package of coleslaw mix
1 package of HOT Jimmy Dean sausage
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown sausage in a skillet. When sausage has been browned, drain the liquid.
In a bowl place about two cups of coleslaw mix (you be the judge!). Add the browned sausage, season with salt and pepper and mix well.
Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sausage mixture to the middle of the egg roll wrapper and wrap by folding the side of the wrapper in to the center and roll to make a log shape. Continue until all of the mixture is gone. Place them on a baking sheet sprayed with non stick spray and Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, turning them about half way through. Once they are browned take them out and serve with your favorite duck sauce, sweet and sour sauce. Sometimes we use Frank’s Sweet Chili Sauce found at most grocery stores!
