I find breakfast to be the hardest meal of the day to figure out. It can be tough to switch things up enough that the kids don’t get board, without just filling a bowl with sugary cereal (though I do that quite frequently as a snack before breakfast, so don’t think I’m preaching here). Muffins, I’ve decided, are going to become a go-to for me. Both kids love them, they last for a couple of days so I usually get two days of breakfast out of them without any complaints, and they’re really not that hard to make.

I figure if anything with bacon is a win, than adding cheese should just be a double win, right? I mean, I’m really not sure there’s much else that could be done with this to improve it, and I wasn’t even sure what a strata was before this morning. I just really wanted to use my new skillet, and I wanted to make an entire breakfast in one dish. Needless to say, I was more than pleased with myself when it was finished.

Here’s a quick and easy recipe to change-up your breakfast routine. I get bored some times of the waffles, pancakes, french toast, eggs and bacon (though I will say that these are an awesome compliment to the eggs and bacon if you’re doing a big brunch style breakfast), etc. Some times it’s just nice to make a plate of something that you can pick at throughout the morning. And afternoon. And evening until they’re completely gone. Not that I’m saying this has happened before.
Oliver’s quite the fan of them too, but how couldn’t he be. They’re little muffins rolled in cinnamon sugar. There is absolutely nothing not to like here. Let’s get to it!

This is one of my favorite breakfasts to make. When Oliver’s having a lazy morning, and he just wants to lay on the couch and watch a movie, I almost always make him a bowl of these so that he can just grab them with his hand and pop them in his mouth.
Traditionally they’re made using challah bread, but that’s not something I keep on hand. I just use the white Italian style sandwich bread that I buy. It’s a bit thicker and much sturdier then the wonderbread, etc. though, so if that’s the kind you typically have on hand you’ll probably want to get the challah or Italian style sandwich bread for this. The bread cubes soak in the egg mixture, so the softer, finer crumb options will just fall apart on you.

I really don’t use the term “ridiculously” often (ok, maybe I do). These though, these really are ridiculously easy. You can whip them up in a blender, then it’s even easy to pour them into your pan. If you don’t have a blender just use your hand mixer, no biggie.
I was nervous when I first saw the recipe. I mean, 2 cups of sour cream, in pancakes? I just… I couldn’t wrap my head around it. And there was so little flour (though more after I tweaked it from the original, the original was just too runny and flat).

This is my go-to recipe for waffles, and it’s breakfast in this house every Sunday morning. Waffles can be tough to get right; sometimes they’re soggy, sometimes they’re rock hard. They can lack flavor or sweetness, or be way over seasoned. To me though, the most important thing is the texture. I need my waffles to be fluffy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. Second to that, they need to be able to hold up to maple syrup and not become a soggy mess on the plate.

Just another quick sandwich post, clearly I have an addiction going right now.
Ciabatta bread, fried egg, fried peameal bacon, a dash of ketchup (if that’s your thing), and some cheese (personally I’m a fan of havarti; I’m a fan of it on just about everything).
So, no recipe coming with this one, I don’t think it’s necessary (that and I didn’t take any pictures during). This can just be one of those things where you wake up and go, “yep, time for that Canadian sandwich”.

I was in a bit of a bind for breakfast this morning. I’d been out of bread all week, a combination of forgetfulness last week when shopping and laziness this week in not wanting to load up the kids and run out, in the rain, only to buy bread. I did finally tonight, but I was not up for it this morning.
Oliver had already eaten pancakes, waffles and Dutch babies (aka puffy oven pancakes) this week, so I was quickly running out of options. I should mention here that my son will not eat eggs, so those easy omelets, scrambled, or over easy options aren’t options for me. I’m really got to find a way for this child to enjoy eggs.

This is one of the easiest things in the world to make, and it is so great. So much better then those boxed granola style cereals that you buy, and it’s fantastic sprinkled on top of yogurt or ice cream.
You can add basically anything that you like to it as well, this recipe is just for the one I made today. Be creative, you can even add things to it once it’s cooked and crumbled like I do. I always toss in some raisins for Oliver, because I hate raisins. I really, really hate raisins, and that way I can keep all the raisins contained in his bowl. I hate raisins so much I can’t even stomach the thought of picking them out.

I used to always make French Toast what I thought was the standard way. Throw a bunch of eggs in a bowl, whisk them together with a splash of milk and some cinnamon and cook them in a non-stick skillet. I still think that there’s a place for this style too. It’s nice and easy and there’s less clean up.
Now though, on the weekend when I’m up early and looking forward to a family breakfast I make it this way. It just gives the toast that extra punch…and a very similar flavor to bread pudding, something this girl with a touch of British blood can’t get enough of!
