With the 4th of July coming up in just over a week, I figure it is time for a comforting make ahead breakfast recipe. You might have house guests, or were up late the night before and don’t want to deal with having to feed the kids the next day. Or you might be traveling, and want something you can make on the road (assuming you have a kitchen). There is a good chance we will have a house full of people over 4th of July weekend, so I have a good feeling we will be doing this again. But I might switch it up with a strawberry version.
Crushed cereal coated Hawaiian dinner rolls makes use of great leftovers, and a fun twist on French toast.
I can’t believe that it is the holiday season already. I swear it seems like we just had Christmas. But it is here, and it is time to start planning your menus, and what cookies you are going to bake this year. I am hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I guess I better get working. We have pretty much the same thing each year, but sometimes we like to throw something new into the mix. One of the things that is a staple on the table no matter what, are dinner rolls. What about at your house?
Have you been over to Damn Delicious written by my friend Chung-Ah? If not, you are missing out! Chung-Ah is super sweet (she even sent me chips from Trader Joe’s once because I couldn’t get them), and always has something amazing to share. Don’t miss her Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes, Southwest Quinoa Sliders with Avocado Cream Sauce, or Hoisin Asian Meatballs.
I am so excited to share this new program with Kraft Foods that I am a part of. Kraft has a new product line out called Kraft Fresh Take. You may have seen it in the cheese case at your grocery store. Kraft Fresh Take is a cheese and seasoned breadcrumb mixture, and it is a busy cooks dream. I was given the Spicy Chipotle Cheddar variety for my challenge.
It is Secret Recipe Club time again! This month I was assigned This Mama Cooks. Anne-Marie has a very extensive website full of great recipes as well tips, coupons, and other deals. Anne-Marie also has a whole section of Weight Watchers recipes!
My son is a huge fan of french toast. He loves it topped with strawberries, so when I saw this, I immediately knew he would love it! One Saturday morning I made this for him. He was in heaven. My husband wasn’t sure how the strawberries and peanut butter and maple syrup would go together, but it worked. My 7 year old likes crunchy peanut butter, so that is what I used, but you could use whatever you like.
This is a very filling and somewhat decadent feeling breakfast. It comes together rather quickly (not much longer than making traditional french toast). It would be great for a weekend breakfast, or even a fun Thanksgiving breakfast.
We had a great weekend. My in laws were here to celebrate my sons birthday. He turns 7 on Wednesday. They were able to get a last minute flight out here to surprise him. He was very excited when he woke up Friday morning to find them here. They were able to see his flag football game yesterday. They didn’t win, but they played so much better than the week before. My 6 year old even managed to get 4 flags! He was so proud of himself. They have another game tonight, and 2 practices this week, so it will be a week full of football here!
It has been far too long since I have given you a muffin recipe. I made some with the left over Easter candy, but they never made it to the photo shoot :) I made these last week, and they were a hit. They really do taste like french toast in a muffin form. You even get to have a little syrup on top :) As usual, I froze the leftovers, and they were still moist and tasty when I took them out. My 6 year old told me “Mommy, you always make the best home made stuff”.
