Summer Breakfast Favs

Summer Breakfast Favs

It’s beginning to feel a lot like SUMMER!  I am so excited about summer breakfasts!  Of course, we eat breakfast year round but in the summer it just seems a lot more fun and like there’s a lot more energy involved in making breakfast.  Here are four of my favorite breakfasts to make in the summer.

Sausage Egg Muffin

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Muffin

This one is great for when you’re craving the fast food breakfast but decide against it.  All you do is toast the English muffin, fry up an egg, and microwave some pre-cooked breakfast sausage and throw it all together.  I also zap it in the microwave for a few to melt the cheese.

 

French Toast and FruitFrench Toast

I’m not a big fan of syrup so instead, I add some powdered sugar to my french toast and dip it into whipped cream.  Usually the banana is in the same bite. 🙂  Did anyone else just emphasize the ‘Whip’ (whowip) haha?  I can’t seem to say anything with the ‘wh’ without emphasizing anymore.  I also love frozen berries so blackberries it is this time. 🙂

 

Berry Pancakes

 

Mini Fruit Pancakes

Once again, I’m not a big syrup fan but adding some fresh fruit and whipped cream always does the trick. 🙂  I also like mini pancakes better than regular sized pancakes.  I know it makes no difference but they are so much better!

 

Memaw’s Psst RollsPsst Rolls

These favs have been in the family for a long time.  They got their name because they are made from the rolls in the containers that are terrifying to open because of that ‘pop’.  I actually prefer the Kroger brand for these rather than Pillsburry because they don’t puff up as much and are a bit smaller.  Just squish a roll into an oval, dip in butter, then dip into a cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Give the roll one twist and set on a cookie sheet.  Bake and then enjoy the magic!  These are a very cheap way to make breakfast too!

The Ultimate BLT

The Ultimate BLT

BLT’s are one of my favorite quick and easy meals for lunch or dinner.  I typically just make the standard BLT sandwich that includes the Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato on some bread with mayonnaise, but once in a while I like to add a special treat to the sandwich.

To make the Ultimate BLT sandwich, the two special ingredients are an egg over medium and sliced avocado.  The perfect addition to any BLT.  I just wish I had used Sour Dough Bread! 🙂

Cheese Doritos Meatballs

Phototastic-1_10_2015_f2c9d033-6972-420a-97c6-4662a1125111

This recipe comes from the ‘Beef it’s What’s For Dinner: Thirty Meals in 30 Minutes’ recipe book.

I’m a big fan of cute appetizers but I always find that when it comes time to host a party I don’t want to try anything new just in case it doesn’t turn out.  Because of that, every so often, I made little appetizer sized lunches to try out new things.

This has been one of my favorite recipes because it’s so easy and tastes delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 can mild green chilies
  • 16 cubes of Cheese (1/2″)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups crushed nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips

Sauce

  • 6 tablespoons thick taco sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400*F.
  2. Combine beef, taco seasoning and chilies.  (I left out the chilies)
  3. Divide the mixture into 16 portions and set aside.
  4. Cut 16 cubes of cheese
  5. Wrap each portion around a cube of cheese
  6. Beat an egg white into a bowl (I used the whole egg)
  7. Dip the meatball into the egg and fully coat then press the meatball into the chips (I used Spicy Nacho Doritos).
  8. Place the meatballs on a greased baking pan and cook for 15 – 20 minutes.  (Be careful to watch as it gets close.  The cheese all melted out a bit too much for me)
  9. Combine the sauce ingredients into a bowl for serving.
