Waffles!

Ive had a waffle iron for over a year and have only used it one time. I really dont know why I neglected it! Jeremy wanted breakfast one morning and I had everything on hand to make waffles. These are a softer waffle. Not overly sweet like or weird tasting like the premade ones. My waffle iron will definately be getting used alot more after trying these!

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups flour- I used 2 cups

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

2 eggs

1 3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup oil or melted butter- I used about 1/3 cup oil…I think 1/2 cup wouldve been way to much

1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Preheat waffle iron.In large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients. Stir everything together just until combined (its ok if its a little lumpy). Pour into greased waffle iron just enough to cover the little nubbers inside. They should be ready in about 3-4 mins!

Rosemary Potato Frittata

I love the combination of rosemary and potatoes. I saw Rachael Ray make this a few days ago and knew this would be the perfect frittata. I was sooo right! I can see myself making this many more times in the future whether it be for breakfast or dinner. A fresh fruit salad would be great with this.

Cinnamon Rolls

I used the same recipe for these that I used for the caramel pecan rolls. The only difference is I made a cream cheese icing for these.

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

I recently saw on a board that I visit frequently that someone had made these and I knew that I would be making them soon. Actually I made them the night that I saw the post! lol These are sooooooooo good. The sweet blueberries and the tart lemon glaze compliment each other perfectly.

French Toast with brown sugar banana syrup

OMG good…thats the only way I know how to describe this. Im really not much of a Sandra Lee aka Aunt Sandy fan but I did watch her new show Money saving meals yesterday. She made this french toast and it looked so good. The syrup is really what makes this dish so good.  Its a keeper for sure. Try it!  The only thing I done differently was that I used french bread instead of challah and fat free half and half instead of milk.

I pan fried the bacon slices in a little bit of olive oil.

Gravy-

about 2 tbsp of the bacon drippings

2 tbsp flour

salt and pepper

about 2 cups, give or take a little, 2 % milk

 

Stir flour into hot bacon drippings on med high heat. Let cook out for a minute. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk in milk and reduce heat to low and simmer 4-5 mins or until thickened.

 

Biscuits-

1 1/2 cups bisquick

1/2 cup milk

Preheat over to 450.Stir just until combined.Spoon batter in heaping tablespoons onto pan spray with cooking spray. Bake about 10 mins…See, I told ya I cheated! haha

 

Eggs-

2 eggs

splash of milk

salt and pepper

big splash of hot sauce

Whisk all together until beaten.  Cook on low heat in a little bit of butter until eggs are set.
