Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.
Seriously, I'm a cupcake aficionado and these cupcakes are amazing! I saw them on a bakery menu and decided to replicate them.
Caramelized French Toast
My family loves it when I make this variation of French toast that my grandma once made for me. It's a GREAT substitute for sticky cinnamon rolls and a lot less hassle ... ENJOY!
Maple Asparagus Mini Frittatas
This is a delicious breakfast option for the whole family. Quick and easy. Freezes perfectly for those that pre-plan. Place in a resealable bag and freeze. To reheat, remove from freezer and microwave on high for 1 minute, adding time as needed to heat through.
Breakfast Burritos with Green Salsa
These burritos are great for a weekend brunch before heading to the farmer's market.
(Big as a) Cathead Biscuits
This is my mom's biscuit recipe, passed down from her mom and grandma who lived their entire lives on the Mississippi Delta. Of course it took a lot of trial and error to get it right because she was from the 'handful of this and a pinch of that' school of cooking. You can use milk or plain yogurt in place of the buttermilk. Shortening or butter can stand in for the lard. Serve with butter, jelly, honey, gravy, or whatever your favorite biscuit topping is.
Individual breakfast pies that can be made ahead of time, and microwaved as needed. My 3 year old grandson loves them, and they are finger food for the little ones. The big guys love them too. I fix hash browns and gravy as side dishes for the big guys, and it is a huge hit!
Breakfast Casserole in a Slow Cooker
Cooks while you sleep! Some fun variations of this recipe: before cooking (during prep) you can add chunks of sourdough bread, diced chiles, salsa, and/or diced green onions. You can use sage or regular sausage in place of the maple sausage, if desired.
