I don’t know about the rest of you, but I LOVE breakfast foods. They are by far my favorite thing to eat. Breakfast for lunch and dinner, YUMMO. I can definitely say that I get a bit more excited to try something new for breakfast than anything else. The foods are just so simple but there is so much that you can do with them. I mean, think about it…How many different ways are there to cook an egg? And after you’ve chosen a way to cook the egg, How many different ways are there to season it, flavor it and pair it with other foods?! MILLIONS! You can’t get sick of it.
And that’s just eggs! There’s pancakes, oatmeal, french toast, qrits, quinoa and the list just goes on and on. How can you possibly not like breakfast.
So for this lovely, stormy Friday, well at least in Florida, I have decided to brighten up all of your days and throw some breakfast your way! The first, a Garlic and Herb Cheese Baked Egg. The second, a Pumpkin Overnight Oats. Can’t go wrong with either!
1 Tablespoon Non-Fat Milk
1 Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb Cheese, Chopped
1 Tablespoon Chopped Chives
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a ramekin with non-stick spray. Add all of the ingredients. DO NOT STIR.
2. Put into oven for about 10 minutes. The whites should be cooked through, but the yolk should remain uncooked. The eggs will cook a bit after it has been removed from the oven.
And Finito! It is extremely good.
Simple and Easy. I love making this recipe right before I jump in the shower in the morning, or as I am just finishing up getting ready. It really doesn’t take much preparation at all, and the ten minutes it a perfect amount of time to get ready. For another take on the Baked Egg, you can check out the original recipe .
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
3/4 Cup Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Non-Fat Milk
1 1/1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Seasoning
1 Ripe Banana, Chopped
1. Put all ingredients into a jar and mix well. Put it in the fridge overnight and top it with anything you like.
I topped this off with my Home-made Granola and a pinch of cinnamon. If you want to sweeten it up, try some light brown sugar to top it off. Or crushed graham crackers. This also makes 3 servings so you will have enough for a few breakfasts!
For lunch, I had a bagel with raspberry Jam…Breakfast on the brain. But, at some point on the menu, I have some cupcakes. Either tonight or tomorrow afternoon these will be happening. I have to do some brainstorming first to figure out what exactly the plan is.
What’s your favorite breakfast meal? Or your favorite breakfast for dinner meal?!
