These are those breakfast and brunch recipes (casseroles, coffee cakes, and so on) which you might make the night before for a breakfast without a lot of hassle in the morning. The morning after a big holiday dinner, for instance.
I found this recipe in a holiday magazine a couple of years ago and it's become a family favorite ever since. It's sort of like a fancy bread pudding, yet not quite, so I hesitate to really term it a bread pudding because in this case the croissants don't dissolve into the other ingredients like a normal bread pudding would, so the texture is much different. The orange flavor gives it a wonderful taste too.
As an American living in Europe, where the typical breakfast is a roll with a few slices of cheese, I can tell you first hand the one thing you soon miss is the comfort of a good American breakfast! I LOVE this recipe and the cookbook it comes from: "A Real American Breakfast" by Cheryl Alters Jamison is a collection of traditional and innovative breakfast recipes you are sure to enjoy.
This is from Betty Crocker's "Easy Family Dinners." Made it this morning for breakfast and DH and 5 year old both ate it up! I substituted low fat or fat free ingredients at every opportunity (egg product, l/f cheese, l/f cream cheese, etc.) and it was a great high-protein meal!
My family and friends just love this recipe! It's easy, delicious, and you make it the night before so there is no work in the morning. Just pop it in the oven and by the time the table is set and coffee is on, it's ready! I believe this recipe came from the Best of Bridge cookbook. Great served with fresh fruit or yogurt. Can also be cooked in casserole dish on the barbeque so you don't heat up your house on a hot day!
I'm an early riser (most days) so I love to wake everyone with yummy smells coming from the kitchen. This is no exception. My DS and DBF like this with blueberries, DD#3 and I prefer cherries. Combinations are endless, think I will try a peach/blueberry combo or strawberries next! Prep time does not include overnite chilling.
This sounds so good, although I haven't tried it yet. An egg mixture of peach preserves and half and half is poured over French bread and refrigerated overnight. When cooked, it is topped with a peach butter mix, then sprinkled with toasted almonds. To complete the presentation, sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
Here is a wonderful brunch recipe, I make it quite often at my house for weekend gatherings. I always prepare it a night before, refrigerate, then bake it before we eat, this saves a lot of time. This is also great for supper, with a salad on the side. Enjoy! Note: cooking time does not include cooking pasta.
