  • Baked Cheese Blintzes (great with fruit or savory topping of your choice!)

    1 1/2 c. flour
    2 tbsp. sugar
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 eggs
    3 tbsp. melted butter
    1 tsp. vanilla

    For Cheese Filling:
    15 oz. ricotta
    1 egg yolk
    1 egg
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 c. sugar

    Mix dry ingredients together. Add eggs, melted butter and vanilla. With mixer or whisk, add milk gradually so batter stays smooth. Heat pan and lightly butter or spray pan. Pour scant 1/4 cup of batter into pan. Tilt pan around to spread batter thinly. Cook until dry looking then flip. Cook one more minute. Stack crepes until down with remaining batter.

    CHEESE FILLING: Mix all filling ingredients together. Spoon 2 tablespoons of filling in each crepe. Roll up by folding 2 corners over then roll up opposite ends jelly roll style. Place in foil lined pan and lightly brush tops with soft butter. Cover pan with foil

  • Egg strata is a tradition at our house.
    The day before Christmas--Cut thick slices of Stale French bread and lay it in a large (shaped like a cake pan) buttered glass casserole. Add cooked sausage or turkey sausage pieces. Lots of shredded cheddar cheese. Beat together eggs and milk with a touch of nutmeg and a teaspoon of cream of tartar. Pour egg mixture over. Add a little more cheddar for good measure. Cover and put in refrigerator. Christmas morning -- Bake at 350 until it is set. This is not messy. Goes right to the table. Very little work Christmas morning. Just add a fruit or juice.

  • We take hungry jack biscuits and cut them up and lay them in a baking dish, then melt a little butter in the (half stick or so) in the micro and add cheddar cheese and pour that on top of the biscuits and pop it in the oven. I also cut link sausages in half and wrap them in refridgerated cresent rolls like breakfast pigs in a blanket

  • zbee- glad you like it!!! Its really delish. Sometimes we'll change it up and add sausage or fruit inside, or top it with spicy jalepeno jelly... it looks so pretty when served too! :) Yay for the holidays!

  • We do something similar to the egg strata, then add bacon, sausage links, cinnamon rolls, and orange juice to the table. It's our traditional Christmas breakfast; we've had every year since I was a small child and now I have grown children of my own that expect it every Christmas morning.

  • French evening put slices of bread in a 13x9 pan. Cover with egg, milk, & cinnamon or nutmeg mixture for fench toast. Cover with saran and let it sit overnight in frig. Fry with butter in morning. Custardly and yummy.

  • This:

    We've made it for our game group's Sunday brunch get togethers. There are 3 children in the group, they are 8, 5, and 4. All of them devoured it, and every one of the adults enjoyed it too. Making it into a ring seemed like too much of a pain, though, so we took one can of crescent rolls, sealed them all together on the cookie sheet, put the filling on top, and put the other can of crescent rolls, sealed together over top. Made sure all edges were sealed, then baked it. It was almost like a giant breakfast hot pocket, but tastier, and I'm sure with less preservatives.

  • Kinda funny, but one year my mom made green eggs and red ham (spin off from the Green Eggs and Ham book!)... She just used food coloring. Not a traditional breakfast with ham, but festive and fun!!
