EggMuffin_final1

Look familiar? If you’ve ever grabbed a quick breakfast from America’s most popular fast food chain, you’ll probably recognize these. They’re my version of one of that chain’s lower-fat, least offensive breakfast options. Actually, they’re not bad. The canadian bacon is pretty low fat, the muffin is good for you, the egg is not cooked in loads of fat. The cheese…well, you could use a lower-fat option I suppose. I use the regular American type because that’s what the original sandwich has. These are quick to prepare and when served with a nice fruit on the side, they make a pretty substantial breakfast.

It’s interesting that since I’ve writing this blog the past few months, I find that I post quite a few breakfast recipes. I really never realized that I enjoyed cooking so much in the early morning, but apparently I do! It’s funny, too, because I’m definitely not a morning person. Don’t know what, if anything, this means in the overall plan of the universe, but just thought it was an interesting observation.

Well, anyway.  We had house guests last weekend, BeeBop’s mom and sister, and I wanted to have a nice breakfast for them on Sunday morning before they headed back home, so I mixed up this casserole the night before. Sunday morning, all I had to do was pop it in the oven and it baked while I got the fresh fruit and sweet rolls ready to go. We all enjoyed it. BeeBop and I had leftovers for Monday morning’s breakfast, too.

frenchtoast_platedOver the years I’ve tried all kinds of french toast recipes. Ones that required the mixture to sit overnight. Ones that were stuffed with cream cheese and fruit. Ones that were baked. But I always come back to this one. It’s just so comforting. It’s not too sweet and not too eggy. It’s just plain good. Could be because it’s pretty much the same recipe my Mama used when I was growing up. There’s a lot to be said for your Mama’s recipes, you know. One of your Mama’s recipes can instantly transport you back in time which is why I like burnt fried chicken. But that’s another story. If you’d like to make your family my Mama’s quick french toast, then…

Slow Cooked Oatmeal

crockpot_oatmealIs there anything better than warm, creamy oatmeal on a cold winter morning? Not much, in my opinion. Even better is waking up knowing that that warm, creamy oatmeal is already waiting for you. If you plan ahead and make your oatmeal in the crockpot the night before, all you have to do is put on your warmest robe, start the coffee pot, and grab a spoon.

Herbed Baked Eggs

bakedeggs_final1This recipe from Ina Garten is one that BeeBop and I enjoy frequently. It’s a great brunch dish for a lazy Saturday morning or good for breakfast anytime with some sausage and toasted sourdough bread (or rye would be good, too). I think it would also be good for a spring time supper with sauteed spinach on the side and some crusty french bread. BeeBop, on the other hand, doesn’t think much of anything would be good with sauteed spinach on the side.  He’s a real meat-and-potatoes kind of guy. But he likes the baked eggs for breakfast…as long as there’s some sausage or bacon on the plate.
