Thats what we have for our blood drive breakfast! Isn't that cool! A friend of ours goes to another church that has 1st Sunday breakfast and they even have potatoes O'Brian and quiech (sp) with all the pancakes and eggs & etc. Just thinking about it makes you gain 10 lbs!
I better stick with the meal shakes! Dr. has been after me to loose weight and I have been trying (for Years!!) but its hard to move sometimes with a bone spur and bad knees, hips, oh I'm just falling apart! I might try water arobics except they go out to lunch twice a month and to yummy places too! Can't wn for loosing (except loosing the weight)

I'll grab a handful of Cheerios to snack on. I like them and they are somewhat healthy.

I know...my mil goes to a workout and they always go out to eat afterwards. It seems to me that defeats the purpose of the workout. LOL

I'm one for "fix it ahead" on holidays so I can enjoy the restful day also.... but we all still have to eat. So here's another fix ahead dish



Coffee Cake

Assemble this the night before and bake while everyone is getting up

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups bran flakes cereal with raisins
1/2 cup sugar(or use comparable substitute)
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1/4 cup Butter Buds, liquid form
1/4 cup egg beaters

TOPPING

2 tbsp. sugar or sugar substitute
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Lightly spray an 8" square pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl combine flour,baking powder,baking soda,and stir to blend. Mix in cereal, sugar, buttermilk, butter buds and egg beaters and stir till moistened. Spread batter into prepared pan. Combine topping ingredients,sprinkle
over batter. If not cooking until next day, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate till ready to bake. Then bake at 400 degrees 30-40 minutes or till toothpick tests clean.

liquid butter buds??

What and where do you get "liquid butter buds"? Is there a sub. for it?
When we moved from Portland OR to TN I had to re-learn how to cook some things as they didn't have any idea what I was asking for at the store. I've never heard of liquid butter buds. Down here we use real butter, margarine, or butter replacements. The recipe sounds delicious, but I need to know what liquid butter buds are :-)

Butter Buds noramlly comes in a shake on type formula, but in some places you can get it also in liquid. If you can't get it that way I don't know why you couldn't use any liquid form of "butter". I can't beleive It's Not Butter makes one, Shedd's Country Crock makes one also. Really any brand should work, Good Luck and hope you enjoy it!

Cool

I use something like that on popcorn for the kids. I use something called Molly McButter on mine. Sounds like the same thing.

Breakfast casserole

1 pkg. frozen hashbrowns
6 to 8 eggs
2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
1 cups diced ham or 12 strips of crisp bacon crumbled
1/3 cup milk
1 cup sour cream optional
In a 13X9" casserole dish spray with Pam, sprinkle hashbrowns evenly over bottom and press some to side. Bake at 400' for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside.
Beat eggs and milk till lemon color and slightly frothy, add meat, bet add some cheese saving some for the top.
If using sour cream spread a layer of sour cream evenly over the hashbrowns. Pour egg mixture over hashbrowns, sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until eggs are set. Cool 5 minutes, and serve.

Hope you enjoy!

Tasha's seriously yummy Cinnamon Rolls

1 cup warm water
2 1/4 oz packets of active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups +1tsp granulated sugar
2 tsp salt
1 cup warm milk
2 1/3 cups melted margerine
2 eggs, slightly beaten
8 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsps ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups pecans (if you like them)
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp maple extract ( if you don't like maple just use 1/4 of the amount, or leave it out)
6 Tbsps hot water

Dissolve yeast and 1 tsp sugar in warm water; set aside

In a large bowl, mix 2/3 cup sugar, milk, 2/3 cup melted margarine, salt, eggs; stir well and add to yeast mixture.

Add half the flour and beat until smooth.

Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a slightly stiff dough

Turn out onto a well-floured board and knead for 8 minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size. Just over an hour.

Punch down and let rest for 5 minutes.

Roll dough out onto floured surface into a 15x20 rectangle

Brush 1/2 cup melted margarine over dough.

Sprinkle nuts, if you're using them.

Roll up the dough and pinch the edge to seal.

Cut the roll into about 15 slices

Coat bottom of a 13x9 pan with 1/2 cup melted margarine, then sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar

Place cinnamon roll slices close together in pan.

Cover pan and allow to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Stir together 2/3 cup melted margarine, powdered sugar, and vanilla and maple extracts.

Stir in hot water 1 Tbsp at a time until glaze reaches desired consistency.

Spread prepared icing over slightly cooled rolls.

Christmas Morning Strata

8 slices of bread cubed (stale is perfect)
2 cups grated cheddar (8oz)
1 cup cubed precooked ham ( my family prefers sausage or bacon)
6 beaten eggs
1 cup light cream (milk is ok too)
1 cup evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon dry parsley
Lightly grease Crock Pot. Alternate layers of bread, cheese and meat. Beat together eggs, milk, salt, and parsley, pour mixture over bread. Sprinkle paprika over top. Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours. Longer cooking time makes a dryer outcome.

Incredible Smelling Apple Oatmeal

2 cups milk
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon REAL butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dry oatmeal (the real thing as instant will just get smooshy!)
1 cup chopped apples ( I am thinking of doing peach or cranberry)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (if YOUR husband will let you )
2 tablespoons brown sugar

You can also add raisins if you like them, it looks neat, but I hate picking them out.

Mix together all ingredients in a greased Crock Pot. Cover, Cook on low 5-6 hours. Serve with milk. This can also be dessert if you dish it into pretty bowls and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top

Great Holiday Make-Ahead Breakfast Favorites

by Leslie Sausage

Tired of cold cereal or cheese toast for your holiday breakfast? Do you starve yourself on holiday mornings waiting on the "big" meal?

Try one of these favorite make-ahead casseroles for your next holiday breakfast! The first two are sweet, the apple cobbler is made in the crockpot and uses granola, and the last one makes a very hearty "meat and potato" casserole.

French Toast Bundt Pan Breakfast
French Toast Casserole
Crockpot Breakfast Apple Cobbler
Farmer's Breakfast Casserole





Make-Ahead: French Toast Bundt Pan Breakfast

This is a cross between coffee cake and cinnamon rolls!

12 (very cold) unbaked dinner rolls
2 eggs
1/3-cup liquid hazelnut coffee creamer
1/4-cup pancake syrup or honey
3-tablespoon butter, melted
2-tablespoon sugar
1/2-tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2-tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Buy frozen rolls or make the rolls yourself, but this works best if the dough is still very chilled from the freezer/refrigerator before the dough starts rising.

Cut rolls in fourths. Combine the other ingredients in a bowl. Dip rolls in mixture and place in Bundt pan which has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour remaining mixture over rolls.

For make-ahead, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at this time.

When ready to prepare, loosen cover and let rise at room temperature until rolls
rise to the top of the pan.

Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter. Drizzle with
syrup and powdered sugar. Slice and serve with additional syrup.

~*~

Easy: French Toast Casserole

Everything could be mixed the night before and then poured over the French bread in the morning before baking.

1 loaf French bread
6 eggs
3 cups milk
1/3-cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Spray a 13x9 pan with Pam. Tear up the bread and place it in the pan. Combine the remaining ingredients together. Pour them over the bread Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup.

~*~

Make-Ahead: Crockpot Breakfast Apple Cobbler

4 medium-sized apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups granola cereal

Place apples in slow cooker and mix in remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low 7-9 hours (overnight) or on high 2-3 hours. Serve with milk.

~*~

Make Ahead: Farmer's Breakfast Casserole

3 cups frozen shredded hash browns, 24 oz. bag
3/4 cups Monterey jack cheese, shredded
3/4 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3-cup mild salsa
1 cup Ham, or Canadian-style bacon, diced
1/2 cup Green onions, sliced
4 Eggs, beaten
12 oz Evaporated milk, canned
1/4-teaspoon black pepper
1/8-teaspoon salt

Make Ahead (day before)
Grease a 2-quart square-baking dish. Spread the potatoes evenly in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with cheeses, ham, salsa and green onions. Combine the eggs, milk, pepper, and salt and pour over the potato mixture in dish. Cover and refrigerate. To serve, bake, uncovered at 350°F for 40 to 45 or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Optional, add extra shredded cheese to the top during the last 15 minutes of baking. Serves 6.
