    I make french toast or my version of the "BLT breakfast bagel" from McDonalds:
    Bagel (toasted), bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo) It seriously is SO good and gives you energy for hours. My DH requests them

    Default Overnight French Toast

    Trust me, this is awesome! I made it for a work potluck and it was gone!

    1 loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
    8 eggs
    3 cups milk
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3/4 cup butter
    1 1/3 cups brown sugar


    Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
    The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

    Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

    Default Cranberry Cinnamon Buns

    http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...ON-BUNS-105753

    This recipe is the best! I have made them many times and each time, loved them more. I have also doubled the filling with no cranberries and they tasted just like Cinnabon.

    Default Breakfast Pizza

    Breakfast Pizza

    Recipe courtesy George Duran
    Prep Time: 15 min Inactive Prep Time: 1hr min Cook Time: 15 min Level: Easy Serves: 4 to 6 servings

    Ingredients

    • 1 prepared thin pizza crust (about 10 ounces), such as Boboli
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 8 large eggs
    • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, cooked and squeezed dry, reserving 1 tablespoon of the liquid
    • 1 cup chopped onion, about 1 medium onion
    • Kosher salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
    Brush the pizza crust on both sides with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place crust directly onto the middle rack of the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
    While the crust is cooking, break the eggs into a bowl and add the reserved spinach liquid. Whisk them well and season them with salt and pepper. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to a 10-inch skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the dry spinach, breaking up the pieces, and heat through, about 2 minutes. Scrape the vegetable mixture into the eggs and beat it well to distribute the spinach evenly. Turn the heat down to low and pour the egg mixture back into the pan. Gently stir the eggs until they are just set and still moist, about 3 to 4 minutes.
    Spread the egg mixture evenly onto the baked pizza crust and top with the cheese. Return to the oven until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Serve hot.

    Default Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata

    Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata

    2007 Ellie Krieger, All rights reserved
    Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 20 min Level: Easy Serves: 4 servings (2 wedges per serving)

    Ingredients

    • 8 large eggs
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 1 small red onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
    • 2 cups chopped cooked broccoli
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar (2 ounces)
    Directions

    Separate 4 of the eggs, putting the whites into a medium sized bowl and discarding the yolks. Add the 4 whole eggs and 2 tablespoons of water to the whites and whisk well.
    In a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet heat the oil over a medium flame. Add the onion and cook until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with salt and a few turns of pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the skillet covering them evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and let cook until the egg mixture has set around the edges but is somewhat liquid in the middle, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese.
    Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Place the skillet under the broiler about 2 inches from the heat until the surface is set and golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the egg mixture will become tough.
    Cut the frittata into 8 wedges and serve.

    Default Apple Fritters

    Apple FrittersRecipe courtesy Rachael Ray

    Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 8 min Level: Easy Serves: 20 apple fritter rings

    Ingredients

    • Vegetable oil, for frying
    • 4 apples, Red or Golden Delicious or, 2 of each
    • 2 teaspoons lemon juice (1 wedge will do)
    • 2 cups complete pancake mix, any brand
    • 1 1/2 cups water
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, or equivalent of freshly grated
    • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    Directions

    Heat 1-inch vegetable oil on moderate to medium high heat. If you wish to test the oil, add a 1-inch cube of bread to hot oil. If it turns deep golden brown in color in a count of 40, the oil is ready.
    Core apples with an apple corer. Cut into 1/4-inch thick slices across, forming apple rings. Sprinkle sliced apples with the juice of a wedge of lemon to prevent browning.
    Mix together pancake mix and water, season with nutmeg. Place confectioners' sugar in a sifter or a tea strainer. Place a piece of cardboard or brown paper sack on a work surface for draining fritters. Working in small batches of 5 to 6 slices, coat rings of apple in batter, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until evenly golden brown. Transfer to paper bag or towels to drain. When all the fritters are cooked, let oil cool before discarding.
    Top fritters with confectioners' sugar and transfer to a serving platter.

    Default Cinnamon (Chocolate Chip) Pancakes

    Dd wanted pancakes this a.m. so we experiemented a bit, and came up with this awesome recipe. I'll try to put exact measurements, but know that I kind of winged it ... they turned out absolutely fabulous.

    And the best part is... they are HEALTHY!

    Wet ingredients:
    1/4 cup tran-fat free margarine spread (nuked for about 30 seconds to soften)
    2 egg whites
    2/3 cup low fat milk (or I just used water with a dash of milk)
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Dry ingredients:
    1 cup whole wheat or spelt flour
    1/2 cup raw sugar
    1 heaping tbsp ground flax
    A few dashes (perhaps about 1 1/2 tsp?) cinnamon ... you can estimate according to your own tastes.
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt

    Add chocolate chips, depending on how many you want. I added them to dd's pancakes separately as they were cooking, since I didn't want them in my pancakes.

    Whisk together the wet ingredients. Mix up the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then mix the wet with the dry.

    Place on griddle or stovetop in 1/4 cup scoops. Flip when the start to get bubbly.

    These were delicious -- and fluffy and with just the right amount of cinnamon. Not too much ... just a taste. Try them and give me your feedback!
