Yummy Breakfast Ideas!

Inspired by Rachel Ray's recipe for Individual French Toast Strata, here is my version for French Toast Muffins.  High in calories for growing boys!  Boog ate two this morning for breakfast without syrup to dip!

Preheat Oven 350
Beat Together in Bowl:
6 Eggs
3/4 cup fresh light cream (from Wright's Dairy of course)
3/4 cup skim milk
6 tbsp REAL maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
good pinch of salt

4 cups Portuguese Sweet Bread diced into 1" cubes
2 tbsp melted butter

Divide bread cubes into 12 muffin tins (LINED WITH THE MUFFIN LINERS~ trust me even if you have the best non stick, it will still stick and you will spend an hour cleaning the damn pan)
Pour Mixture evenly into/over each muffin tin
Let bread cubes soak a few minutes before baking for 20-25 minutes, depending on oven

Fresh fruit and a cup a Joe

Left over Bulgar Wheat from homemade Tabouli?

On a recommendation from Savoring the Thyme mommy blogger, I hiBob's Red Mill Natural Foods website for some recipes and came across a Breakfast Tabouli.  I happened to have golden raisins instead of dried cherries and warmed them up the microwave with some OJ to plump them up.

Sweet Breakfast Tabouli

  • 1/2 c dried sweet cherries or other fruit 
  • 1 T dried mint flakes 
  • 1 c boiling water 
  • 1/2 c Bulgur (ALA) from Hard Red Wheat 
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice 
  • 2 T honey 
In a small casserole with tight-fitting lid, mix cherries and mint.

In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil and add bulgur. Return to a boil, then dump into cherry mixture and tightly cover. Let stand to steam for 10 minutes. Chill for later use, or use warm.

In a small cup, stir together lemon and honey. Drizzle over bulgur and fluff to mix. Eat cold in summer, warm in winter.

Makes 2 servings.
