Chocolate French Toast

Chocolate French Toast

Chocolate is not one of the normal breakfast “food groups,” the way things like bacon, eggs, toast and hash browns (among other things, of course) are, so I don’t usually take it into account when I am starting to prepare breakfast in the morning. But that doesn’t mean that chocolate shouldn’t be a breakfast option on occasion, right? Chocolate chip pancakes are one of my ... Read More »

Cereal-Crusted French Toast

Cereal-Crusted French Toast

Custardy, soft french toast is a classic breakfast option. You can do so much with the basic recipe just by using different types of bread. White bread makes the most basic french toast, while cinnamon raisin bread makes the dish taste almost like a cinnamon bun. Unlike pancakes, where you can just toss in some berries, it can be difficult to add additional flavors or ... Read More »

Cheesy Egg Casserole

I’ve had lots of interesting egg dishes at brunches and big breakfast get-togethers. Everything from frittatas to quiches to big piles of scrambled eggs with fresh herbs. One of my favorite egg brunch dishes is this cheesy egg casserole, which is packed with creamy cheese, can be made in advance, and serves a crowd of at least a dozen people with ease. Casseroles get a ... Read More »

Coconut Almond Granola

Coconut Almond Granola

I really like having a batch of granola around the house for snacking, and topping off yogurts and ice cream. I almost always use my recipe for Mix-n-Match Applesauce Granola. As the name suggests, it’s a versatile recipe that you can use many different kinds of flavors in, changing the nuts, fruits and the spices to suit your mood and tastebuds every time you make ...

Sausage and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Sausage and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Crustless Quiche is one of my favorite easy dinner dishes to make. Quiche doesn’t sound like it would be a quick-fix dish at any time, but this quiche doesn’t use a traditional pastry crust, which really cuts down on the prep time. Instead, the quiche filling includes some all purpose flour and baking powder, in addition to eggs, milk and other standard quiche ingredients. In ... Read More »

Brown Sugar Pancakes with Brown Sugar Maple Syrup

Brown Sugar Pancakes with Brown Sugar Maple Syrup

I suspect that one of the reasons that pancakes are usually kept fairly simple – plain or buttermilk seem to make up the vast majority of pancake recipes – is that pancakes are such a great way of serving maple syrup. It’s easy to save the bulk of the flavor for the syrup. But it is also easy to infuse a little more flavor into ... Read More »

Valentine’s Day Eggs in Toast

Toad-in-the-hole is the name of a traditional British dish in which sausages are put into Yorkshire pudding batter and baked right into the popover-like pastry. Since it’s origination, the name has been expanded to include many other dishes, including the simple breakfast dish of eggs in toast. At least, I’ve always heard eggs-in-toast called toad-in-the-hole. It can also be called Eggs in a Basket, Eggs ... Read More »

Bruléed Yogurt Parfait

Bruleed Yogurt Parfait

It’s always nice to be able to cook and eat a hot breakfast, but sometimes I just want something very quick and easy to start my day. This simple yogurt parfait is one that I come back to again and again. It’s easy to make, subject to all kinds of variations and is perfect for a single serving, although it can be made for a ...
