I'm always looking for something new to make for breakfast on the weekends. It is soo hard for me to find breakfast stuff everyone will eat. I thought I would share my collection with everyone else, just in case someone else feels like me!
Fruit is often considered essential to a healthful breakfast, and an ice pop is just a fun treat. But what would happen if the two became one? A healthful ice pop? And a fun-filled breakfast food that eats like a treat? If you answered both you win, and so will your kids. Each of these ingenious breakfast pops provides a quarter cup of fruit, along with calcium-rich yogurt. Kids can make them the evening of a slumber party, freeze them overnight and start the next day with both a fun and a nutritious breakfast food.
I saw a video on how to get really creamy whipped like oats and here is my take on it. Any sweetener or toppings can be subbed here with great results. I like to soak my oats overnight for quick cooking- I soak them in 1/2 cup water with 1 tbs plain yogurt and add 1/2 cup water in the morning when I cook them. They take 5 minutes.
This is a technique recipe. It was published recently in the Sunday section of the New York Times. Henrietta's is located in the Charles Hotel, a few blocks from Harvard Square. The idea is to clarify the butter and cook the potatoes the night before. Clarified butter can tolerate higher heat used to brown the potatoes. The potatoes must be kept whole until the morning, at which time they are dry and can be grated. Flip them with a large spatula or over a plate. I find it easiest to slide it unflipped onto a plate, put another plate on top, flip it and slide it back into the pan. Time does not include preparation the night before.
This is a breakfast my son and I enjoy. It is quick and easy to make. I make this in the microwave but you can make it on the stove if you prefer. Microwaves do vary so adjust cooking time accordingly.
Great quesadilla for breakfast or a modest dessert! =) I made this up for a Mother's Day breakfast for my mom. She loved it! Dont be afraid to put your own spin on this one! I have added chocolate syrup, or cocoa powder to the center or even a few chocolate chips. I have used apples. I have used cream cheese and strawberry preserves! Play around with this one!
This is a recipe from the Bagley House Bed and Breakfast. It is their most requested recipe and is an adapted version of Miss Bobo's Apple Goodie recipe from Lynchburg, Tennessee. It's very much like an apple crisp. Their recipe gives instructions to clean the dish as soon as possible or reheat adding water and a few drops of dishwashing soap to help remove the caramelized sugar. I didn't and boy do I wish I had. The recipe reads 4-5 servings, but because it is so sweet, I cut down on how much to serve. I did not time the preparation.
Your kids will think you're the coolest when you call them in the morning for breakfast ice cream! Takes about 2 minutes to make and are fun to eat! This recipe can be converted to a smoothie by adding 1/2 cup of milk, then blending in the blender. Adapted from the Sneaky Chef cookbook by Missy Chase Lapine.
