A Tasty Recipe: Stuffed French Toast – Tasty Kitchen Blog Since Ree is somewhere in D.C. right now with her gushing armpits (sorry for that visual on a cooking blog), we’ve invited a very special guest to host the Tasty Recipe post this week. Quite coincidentally, this lovely lady was also our very first member featured here in the Tasty Kitchen blog. She’s fabulous in so many ways, and we’re so glad to have her here. French toast is one of my most favorite foods to eat any time of the day. Here’s a list of everything you need: a loaf of French or Italian bread, eggs, milk, butter, cream cheese, cinnamon, and jam or fresh fruit (if you’re like me, you’ll use both). Before you can invite me over for breakfast, you’ll need to know how to make this. I decided to go with strawberries for the filling. Wash the strawberries, remove the stems, and cut slices in each one. Next, macerate the strawberries, which is fancy way of saying add a little sugar and mix it in. Next, add jam to the cream cheese and mix both of them until well combined.
Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls This was our breakfast Sunday morning. Aren’t they cute? They were very, very good. It’s the whole egg and the toast combo all together in one nice package. These are so easy to make and wouldn’t they be splendid on a brunch buffet table? The best part, you can easily make two, ten, a hundred, whatever your needs are at the moment. I think there are a lot of variations you could do nicely with this recipe, such as, swap out the Parmesan cheese with grated Gruyere or crumbled blue cheese to give a different taste. I used sourdough but I think this would also be nice with onion or brioche rolls as long as they are sturdy. Any way you put these together, they will be great. Slice off top of each dinner roll and gently remove some bread until there is a hole large enough to accommodate an egg. Arrange rolls on a baking sheet. Top each egg with some herbs and a bit of cream. Place tops on rolls and serve warm. Eat with a knife and fork. Print Recipe Ingredients Directions

Sticky Lemon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn Have you ever wondered what cinnamon rolls would taste like, sans cinnamon? Why aren't there more recipes for sticky, gooey, and sweet breakfast rolls without cinnamon or caramel? There are so many other wonderful options! I was craving a buttery, flaky breakfast bun with the sweet, tangy, taste of lemon — so I made one up. These rolls are amazing, if I do say so myself! They are modeled after the classic cinnamon roll, and partially inspired by this bread, with a buttery yeast dough flecked with nutmeg and lemon. These rolls are not difficult, and like other breakfast roll recipes, they can be made at night and put in the refrigerator overnight for easy and quick baking in the morning. The final word on them comes from my mother, who looked at me, wide-eyed, over the brunch table, and said, solemnly, "This is the best thing I ever put in my mouth." Tester's Notes I've made these rolls many times since I first published the recipe in 2010. - Faith, April 2014 Makes 12 large breakfast rolls
The Ultimate Cinnamon Rolls ul⋅ti⋅mate [uhl-tuh-mit]–adjective 1. last; furthest or farthest; ending a process or series: the ultimate point in a journey 2. maximum; decisive; conclusive: the ultimate authority; the ultimate weapon. 3. basic; fundamental; representing a limit beyond which further progress, as in investigation or analysis is impossible 4. not to be improved upon or surpassed; greatest; unsurpassed: the ultimate recipe; the ultimate cinnamon roll. In every aspect of the word, ultimate is the right descriptor for this recipe. It was the first recipe I have tried for cinnamon rolls and it will likely be the last. I could not imagine wanting anything more out of a cinnamon roll. This perfect bun satisfied each sense: fragrance in through the nose, the variant warm colors, the squish of the fork, the warmth of the soft roll, the sweet cinnamon-y flavor and the sound of silence as you take a moment to revel in its perfection. I found this recipe here and was drawn in by its flexibility.
Sour Cream Corn Pancakes I am not a lover of pancakes, except for The Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Pancakes. I don’t hate them, I just don’t love them. I don’t know what it is, I find that most pancakes are too heavy in the morning and if given the choice between pancakes and french toast, french toast will win every time in my book. However earlier this week Smitten Kitchen’s Sweet Corn Pancakes popped into my feed subscription and I was intrigued. Then I thought what if I did a hybrid of sweet corn pancakes and sour cream pancakes, it was one of those “things that make you go hmmmm” (name the band). I am not usually an experimenter of anything that contains the ingredients baking soda, baking power and/ or flour, but I though I would put my big girl panties on and give it a go. Strip the kernels from an ear of corn. Melt butter in a skillet and cook the kernels until they just begin to brown, sprinkle with salt and set aside to cool. Stir in the cooled kernels of corn. Try some more breakfast options. Peace out!
idaho sunrise (baked eggs and bacon in potato bowls) I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days.

Jamaican Banana Fritters - ThatsSoYummy.com There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use! Enjoy! Peel and mash the ripe bananas. Beat egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Next, blend egg mixture with mashed bananas. Make sure it is all incorporated. Then sift flour and baking powder into the banana/egg mixture. Mix it all together. If the batter seems to be too thick add a little milk… I added about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of milk. Add oil to a frying pan and place on medium high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the banana fritter batter into the hot oiled frying pan. Flip when you see the edges starting to get brown and golden. Lastly, combine cinnamon and sugar together to create your cinnamon sugar. Ingredients
