2 Immaculate pie crusts

12 eggs

1/4 c. sour cream

4 oz. diced pancetta

1/2 onion, finely diced

2 apples diced

6 oz. brie, diced

1 c. shredded cheese (I used fontina)

Pre-bake pie crusts until slightly golden at 400F.  Lower temperature to 325F.

Whisk together eggs and sour cream.

Cook pancetta until crispy, adding in onions to carmelize toward the end.

Place brie and apple in one pie crust.

Place pancetta and onion in the other.

Top both with shredded cheese.

Pour egg mixture equally into both.

Bake for 50 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

What I love about quiche is I can use up whatever is in the fridge.  Any veggie, any cheese , any meat, equals Yumm.

Serve with fruit or a salad – you can’t go wrong.

3 packages Stonefire Naan Bread (I used garlic)

12 eggs (fresh from a farm my daughter and son-in-law just purchased!)

1/4 c. sour cream

2 Tbsp. minced dehydrated onion

1/2 tsp. salt

2 packages fully cooked turkey sausage links

2 c. shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

Whisk eggs, sour cream, onion, and salt together.  Soft scramble and set aside.  Keep it a little liquidy.

SAM_3103

Place naan on baking sheets lined with foil and sprayed with coconut oil.

Top with egg mixture.

SAM_3104

Chop defrosted sausage into small pieces and top egg mixture.

SAM_3105

Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes.

Above is a picture of a breakfast I have made countless times and have enjoyed on holiday mornings and ordinary mornings.  The key is to pick the most delicious apples, of course.  Today’s dumplings were made with HUGE golden delicious apples that made me think of my Dad.  He always ate golden delicious.  Softer skin.  Easier on his teeth.  But also, so darn amazing and flavorful.

I also like that they now have a honey butter variety of the crescent dough.  The extra honey in the dough really adds another layer of flavor.

2 apples, cored and cut into 8ths.

2 tubes crescent dough (I used honey butter)

4 eggs

1 C. milk, creamer, creamer, half and half, or any combination thereof.  (I used Cilifia Farms Coconut Almond Blend with no added sugar)

1/2 c. raw sugar

1 Tbsp. vanilla

sam_2826

First you prepare a 13 x 9 baking dish by spraying it with coconut oil and preheat the oven to 375F.

Cut two apples into 8 wedges each.

Wrap apple wedges in crescent dough and place in baking dish.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

sam_2829

Mix together eggs, milk/cream mixture, sugar, and vanilla.  (custard)

sam_2827

Pour custard carefully over crescent wrapped apple wedges.

sam_2830

I serve this topped with vanilla yogurt.  You can sprinkle the apples with cinnamon, ginger, or cloves.  You could sprinkle nuts on top before baking the custard.

 

sam_2814

This is a great choice for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning!  It makes the whole house smell delicious!

20 slices Pepperidge Farm pumpkin spice swirl bread (perfect for holiday breakfasts!)

2 blocks Neufchatel cheese, softened

½ c. sugar or other sweetener.

12 eggs

2 c. milk

1 c. pumpkin butter (I used Kauffman’s – tastes like pumpkin pie!)

Pan spray

This recipe makes 10 large portions.  Leftovers don’t last long, though!

I love when a new flavor of swirl bread appears.  It means another variation on the cheese stuffed French toast my kids love so much.

Mix softened cream cheese and sugar.

sam_2809

Spray 2 baking dishes (13 x 9).  Place bread in dishes to adjust fit.

sam_2810

Spread all 20 slices of bread with cream cheese mixture.

sam_2811

Top each bottom slice with pumpkin butter.

sam_2812

Place top slice on each portion.

Whisk eggs and milk.

Pour slowly, evenly over bread, being careful not to leave any dry spots.

sam_2813

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

No syrup or topping required.  You can top with powdered sugar for appearance, but it is sweet enough without.

Once it has cooled, I place it in a tupperware and everyone eats it as they get up.  No need to reheat.  It’s delicious cold too!

All I can say is YUMMMM.

 

sam_2784

8 eggs

3 Tbsp. sour cream

1 can golden mushroom soup (or other cream soup – leftover homemade is ideal)

1 package fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles

2 cups leftover roasted potatoes

1 onion, chopped

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/2 c. shredded cheese

Combine eggs and sour cream.  Soft scramble in a skillet sprayed with olive oil or coconut spray.  Mix in soup.  Set aside.

sam_2779

Heat olive oil over medium to medium high heat.  Cook onions until softened.  Add potatoes and increase the heat to create crisp brown edges.

sam_2778

Spray crockpot with spray or wipe down with oil.

Pour half of egg/soup mixture into crockpot.

Layer sausage crumbles next.

sam_2780

Layer potatoes and onions next.

sam_2781

Layer remaining egg/soup mixture next.

sam_2782

Top with cheese.

sam_2783

Cook on low for 30 minutes.  Reduce to “keep warm” setting.  Everyone can eat at their leisure as they get up.  I keep spreading the remaining casserole around in the crock pot to keep it from getting dried out at an edge from a spoon.

 

 

SAM_2609

8 slices bread crumbled ( I used swirl with cinnamon and raisin and super seedy Ezekiel bread.

1 – 1 1/2 c. ricotta cheese

1/4 c. butter, melted

1/4 c. honey

1 can pineapple tidbits, drained

1/4 c. peach preserves

Spray 9 x 9 baking dish with coconut oil.

Mix Bread, ricotta, butter, and honey.

Spread into bottom of the sprayed baking dish.

Mix pineapple and preserves.  Spread over bread mixture.

Bake at 375 F for 25 minutes.

 

SAM_2601

French Toast Sausage Casserole

10 sausage links (I used al fresco chicken breakfast sausage)

1 loaf King’s Hawaiian Bread

3 eggs

2 Tbsp. Silk Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Brown sausage in skillet.

Combine egg and creamer.

SAM_2595

Slice 10 pieces of bread to wrap sausage.  I used King’s Hawaiian Bread because it’s sweet.  It was a little fragile though.

SAM_2596

Flatten bread and roll around sausage.

SAM_2597

Dip in egg and place in 13 x 9 baking dish sprayed with coconut oil.

SAM_2598

Set aside.  This only needs to cook for 20 minutes, but the Cheesy Apple Grits takes 40 minutes to bake.

4 c. water

4 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 C. grits

2 c. shredded cheese

4 eggs

1/2 c. milk

1 apple, sliced

cinnamon

Bring water, sugar, and salt to a boil.  Add grits and cook until thickened.

Stir in shredded cheese.

Stir in eggs beaten with milk.

Pour into 13 x 9 baking dish sprayed with coconut oil

SAM_2599

Top with apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon.

SAM_2600

This needs to bake at 450 for 40 minutes.

I set the timer for 20, so that I could put the french toast casserole in beside it to have them finish up together.

 

SAM_2559

2 1/4 c. cake flour

1/3 c. raw millet

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. yogurt (I used strawberry on the bottom greek style)

2 eggs

1/2 c. melted butter

1/2 c. honey

2 Tbsp. key lime juice

1 c. fresh  blueberries

Preheat oven to 375 F and line muffin tins with paper liners sprayed with coconut oil.  I only filled them halfway, so I got 24.

Combine dry ingredients and set aside.

SAM_2555

Whisk eggs lightly, add in yogurt, buter, honey and juice.

SAM_2554

Gently stir wet ingredients into dry ones just until combined.  Do not overmix.

SAM_2556

Fold in blueberries.

SAM_2557

Spoon batter into muffin tins.

SAM_2558

Bake for 15-18 minutes until nice and brown.

SAM_2441

4 c. leftover french fries

1 lb. breakfast sausage

1 crescent dough

10 eggs

1/3 c. milk

2 c. shredded cheese

SAM_2436

Butter 13 x 9 baking dish and spread crescent dough (I used garlic) into the bottom, sealing seams.

SAM_2434

Brown sausage (I used maple) and drain well.

SAM_2437

Spread sausage over crescent dough.  Top with fries.  If the fries are soggy, put them in the oven for a few minutes at 450 sprayed with coconut oil spray until they are a little crisper.

Combine eggs and milk (as you can see from my picture I did a terrible job and had poorly blended eggs – looks terrible but still tastes yummy)

Top fries with shredded cheese and pour egg mixture over carefully.  You can refrigerate overnight at this point, so you’re not making it all drowsy in the morning, like I was.

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.

Substitute any meat for the sausage.  Substitute any potatoes for the fries.  Use any cheese you like (I used colby jack). Add in vegetables (this is a great way to use up leftovers) or make it vegetarian to make it healthier!

SAM_2400

4 C. Water

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 C. grits

5 eggs

1/2 c. milk

1 1/2 c. shredded cheese

1-2 large apples sliced

cinnamon

Spray 13 x 9 baking dish and preheat oven to 450 F.

Heat water, sugar and salt until boiling.  Gradually add grits and lower heat to medium high.  Stir occasionally until mixture thickens.

Meanwhile beat eggs with milk.  Pour into thickened grits.

Stir in cheese until melted.

Top with apples.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake 450F for 40 minutes.
