Ah, I LIVE for Saturday mornings when DH makes breakfast!! I'm too lazy to do anything but the usual — toast and coffee — so if we have something delicious, it's his fault! Unless we have company for the weekend, then of course, I take it upon myself to cook something yummy. Maybe if I find some good, easy recipes here, I'll start making Saturday morning brunch myself — a tasty little party just for us!
There are a lot of sugar free granola recipe's out there, but they include honey. Honey has a ton of sugar in it and can't be used by a diabetic. I found that a lot of stores are now selling sugar free imitation honey and it works just as well. Make sure the honey is Sugar free. The bottle will say imitation. You can make this recipe using any type of dried fruit. I have tried it using dried mango, cranberries, guava, pineapple, cherries, raisins, berries and apricot. Just make sure the dried fruit doesn't have added sugar in it.
I love this bread and I had a craving for it, but didn't want to wait the month it took for the starter to be ready, so, I modified it a bit. It might not be quite as tasty as the original, but it's great if you want it in a hurry! I like to use butterscotch pudding for a different, but really nice flavor! Hope you enjoy!
I had these for the first time at my sister-in-law's when I was staying with them as a teen. They are now a much loved tradition in my home too. Any time it snows, the kids beg me to make them. I've changed them just a bit by adding the nuts but they are good with or without them. For an Orange Cinnamon variation see recipe #112535.
Yummy whole grain pancakes. We make these every weekend. Found the recipe in Whole Grain Baking. The orange juice mellows the whole wheat flavor. You can leave it out, but I recommend trying it. It doesn't affect the flavor at all.
I received this recipe when I was with MOPS (Mothers Of Pre Schoolers). This is such a great tasting pancake that you can add whatever to. We like vanilla, nutmeg and at Christmas....Eggnog! I never checked to see how much the mix makes but the batter will make about 6 or 8 nice size pancakes.
This makes a great weekend brunch or a light weekday dinner served with a side salad and crusty bread. You will need a large skillet for this, an electric frypan works well also. If possible use the large size hash browns for this, red potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes can be used in place of hash browns.
Serves 100; allow 3 slices per serving. Reduce bacon by 6 lbs. for 2 slices per person. I used bacon I got over the meat counter in the store, so it was thicker. There were 12 slices per pound, so ask your butcher to weigh a pound and then count the slices. That way you'll have the correct amount. The bread is only here because I need more then one ingredient to post this. I like to fix ours this way when we have BLT's. Then all the bacon is still warm when we sit down to eat.
These are wonderful and are almost too healthy to be true. Lots of calcium, protein, fiber, etc. I usually eat them without any topping and just keep popping them in my mouth! Yum. But a good jam will do them nicely as well.
