Here's one great idea for what to do with that leftover ham!! My picky eaters loved it and it is easy to make!

Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

Rating: 4.25 stars
Searching for recipes for a gluten-free diet can be challenging during the holidays. Here is a recipe for Irish soda bread that I have adapted over time for St. Patrick's Day. The recipe calls for rice and tapioca flour instead of wheat and it still tastes yummy! Good if wrapped and left overnight, but I think it tastes great right out of the oven. Serve with butter or jam.

Greek Scrambled Eggs

Rating: 4.41 stars
This classic Greek favorite adds a little zest to the standard breakfast. Not much salt is needed; feta is very salty.

Three-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

Rating: 3 stars
Amazingly simple and quick banana pancakes that even my 2-year-old couldn't get enough of. Serve with agave nectar, syrup, honey, butter, nutella, the options are endless.

Sarah's Applesauce

Rating: 4.78 stars
This applesauce is delicious! I make it for my younger brother all the time and he loves it - and he hates canned applesauce!

Breakfast Sausage

Rating: 4.65 stars
Makes a delicious, homemade breakfast sausage using ground pork and an assortment of spices.

Quick Almond Flour Pancakes

Rating: 4.21 stars
These pancakes are a wonderful substitute for regular pancakes when you are watching your carbs! They are very filling and are on the dense side. This is a basic recipe can be tweaked. Any sweetener can be substituted for the maple syrup. Enjoy!

Lola's Horchata

Rating: 4.43 stars
A very easy way to make great horchata!

Baby Spinach Omelet

Rating: 4.48 stars
Tender baby spinach, Parmesan cheese, and a little nutmeg are cooked with eggs. A carb-cutter's perfect start for the day.

Hot Water Cornbread

Rating: 4.33 stars
This is a very old-fashioned recipe. The cornbread is shaped into little cakes and fried, rather than baked. They are served with maple syrup or honey.

Sauteed Apples

Rating: 4.8 stars
This is great for any meal, but is great for breakfast. The syrup from the apples is great on homemade waffles. You may add raisins to the sauce if you wish.

Camp Breakfast

Rating: 4.66 stars

This is a recipe my mother used to make when we were camping. It's warm, hearty, and a good way to start a cold day in the morning, camping or otherwise. Serve in a bowl with toast and coffee for a warming and hearty breakfast.
