Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches
Admin Note: Since this post, I’ve remade these using a better technique. Be sure to check out my Breakfast Sandwiches Revisited. After I made baked chicken nuggets a few weeks ago and explained my deal with Betsy (if she wants something from McD’s, I try to make it for her), I got a few emails saying that the only meal some people will eat at McDonald’s is breakfast. This struck me as kind of odd because most of the stuff on their breakfast menu is even easier to reproduce at home than the stuff on their other menus. Take their classic Egg McMuffin for example. I was able to make some breakfast sandwiches in no time that I would put up against their version any day of the week. Yum. The Rundown I made 12 breakfast sandwiches for this post because they are really easy to freeze and they reheat nicely. My total bill for these came to $16.00 or about $1.33/sandwich. Here’s some interesting facts though about what a bit of time and that extra $3 gets you: Whole Grains. Directions Cooking the Eggs Related:  Breakfast

Cake Batter Pancakes I’m fairly convinced that the world would be a better place if more sprinkles were involved. I know. I just made pancakes. It seems I have an unnatural obsession with cake batter. Well I do. When I develop recipes, I try to make all of them for a purpose. Case in point: it isn’t anyone’s birthday. But I don’t need an excuse to eat cake and sprinkles. And because pancakes always need some sort of topping, I went with a sprinkled glaze. Because nothing goes better with cake than more sugar! These are just plain fun. Sure, they would be best for a special occasion like a birthday, but they also work on a random Saturday in January when it’s -2 degrees outside and all you want to see is some sunshine. That wasn’t me. And yes, this means you will have an open box of cake mix, just like you did with the cake batter bark. Cake Batter Pancakes makes about 12 pancakes 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 2/3 cup yellow cake mix 1 tablespoon sugar 3/4 teaspoon baking powder pinch of salt 2 eggs assorted sprinkles

And they're not the only ones. Did you know, for instance, that the oils in avocados more closely resemble our own skin's oils than any product in the beauty aisle does? Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective — and gentler — alternative to chemical-laden products? For all hair types "The [raw] egg is really the best of all worlds," says Janice Cox, author of "Natural Beauty at Home". To use: For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair, Cox says. For dull hair Styling products (as well as air pollution) can leave a film that both saps moisture and dulls shine — but dairy products like sour cream and plain yogurt can help reverse this damage. For itchy scalp For limp or fine hair For oily or greasy hair

Red Pepper Egg-In-A-Hole | Ginas Skinny Recipes As I was thumbing through Everyday Food Magazine, I came across this recipe that I think is brilliant! It's like an egg-in-a-hole, but lighter and for those of you not eating carbs or gluten-free, a great alternative! I served mine on a half point piece of WW whole wheat toast, but the bread is completely optional. Next time I think I'll try these in large onion rings? Maybe even topping with a little grated cheddar?

Huevos Rancheros - Food & Drink - msn Maybe I just have Mexican food on the brain after my trip earlier this month? Or maybe I am just obsessed with it all the time anyways, but I am on a pretty major spree. And yesterday when I posted all about how to make Restaurant Style Mexican Black Beans, it was only expected that I come up with some way for you to use those black beans today. And it is a really great way, if I do say so myself! And is if those things are great as is- the homemade black beans take it over the top. I also realized while making them, that this would be an absolutely GREAT recipe to make for a lot of people at once- like if you were having a brunch or something. With the weekend here, consider whipping up a batch for your friends or family on Sunday morning! OK, this is how you make Huevos Rancheros: Heat up the black beans. In a medium heavy skillet or nonstick pan, fry the tortillas until crispy over medium-high heat, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Spoon the hot black beans over the tortillas. Ingredients

Bottle Drip Irrigation | I prefer to have the bottle standing right-way-up as I think it looks nicer and it keeps debris out of the bottle thus keeping the holes from blocking. The materials: * 2 litre plastic soft-drink bottle or water bottle * Sharp small screwdriver, pointed hole-maker or drill This can be used in container gardening, raised bed gardens and open vegetable gardens. Using your pocket knife, make 2 small slits in the bottom of your bottle. Dig a hole next to your tomato plant. This will slowly deep-water your tomato plants and most other vegetable plants. You can learn more about this on another website. Only two very small holes are needed at the lowest place on the bottle. I prefer to leave the lids off. Place bamboo stakes next to each bottle. Here I am making another hole slightly higher up the bottle. However, if I remove the lid, water will come out this hole as well as the holes in the base. You can make larger holes, and partly fill the bottle with coarse-sand or soil to slow the flow.

Blythe's Blueberry Muffins I try to stay in shape and eat healthy. As you can probably tell from my blog, I do have a weakness for sugar, butter, chocolate and fat in general. So, I read magazines like Shape and Fitness to keep me inspired and balanced. In last month's issue of Self Gwyneth Paltrow was on the cover and inside there was a recipe for her mom's Blueberry Muffins. All I can say was - YUM! I made no changes from the original recipe and after my family and I ate a bunch I froze the rest for a quick breakfast and for snacks. Blythe's Blueberry Muffinsadapted from Gwyneth Paltrow's Cookbook, "My Father's Daughter"makes 12 muffins Ingredients1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly2 eggs1/2 cup whole milk2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour3/4 cup plus 1 tsp sugar, divided2 teaspoons baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries DirectionsHeat oven to 375°.

Buttermilk Pancake Recipe | POPSUGAR Food While many resort to pancake mix when making a special weekend breakfast, homemade pancakes are a must. Here's the little-known secret: the batter takes just as long to make as a boxed mix, and the result is infinitely better. If the attractive appearance of these golden, crisp cakes isn't enough to push you toward the skillet for a sneak taste, surely the buttery scent and familiar buttermilk tang will send you over the edge. As long as you follow the recipe and keep an eye on the heat, you'll produce something that looks like pancakes. Once all of the pancakes are made, stack them high and serve them with a slab of butter and authentic maple syrup. Ingredients 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 2 cups buttermilk 1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled slightlyClarified butter or high-heat vegetable oil, for cooking Directions Information Category Pancakes/Waffles, Breakfast/Brunch Yield
