Its almost like this is getting easier & easier which is what I was hoping so that by next month, I can start focusing on other goals/projects while keeping up with this one with little effort since its become a habit.
Week 3 consisted of:
Days 1 & 2: Breakfast Pizza – This is a recipe I’ve had for years that we usually make for dinner instead of breakfast. The kids haven’t liked it when we’ve made it before, so this time I substituted a couple handfuls of crumbled bacon for the sausage and they loved it. Plus, since I buy the bacon crumbles in a large bag from Costco, it went together a lot quicker than getting sausage ready, which is a plus in the morning!
1 pkg Pillsbury crescent rolls
1 pound ground sausage, browned and drained
1 cup frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs parmesan cheese, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick vegetable oil spray. Unroll crescent rolls and press evenly into pan. Spoon cooked sausage meat over crust and sprinkle first with hash brown potatoes, then with grated cheese. Beat eggs, milk, and salt together and pour over mixture in pan. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over top, if desired. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until eggs are set.
Days 3 & 4: Pancakes & hash browns (leftover from the bag used for breakfast pizza) – I’ve linked this to my FAVORITE pancake recipe ever. The batter is thin, so they’re not big, fluffy pancakes, but there’s cornmeal and butter in there that gives it a nutty, rich flavor that is amazing. I’ve never made the orange maple butter and my husband doesn’t like blueberries, so we leave that part out. Try them & you’ll thank me for passing this along!
Days 5 & 6: Peanut Butter Muffins – YUM! What could be better than peanut butter & chocolate for breakfast? Everyone loved these, but the babies were a mess of chocolate to clean up. Oh well 🙂
Day 7: Hootenanny (oven pancake) – This was our favorite & I’ll be making it again tomorrow by popular request! And sooooo easy! The link here goes right to the pin I found on pinterest. It doesn’t link to a recipe but the recipe is actually in the description of the pin. Make sense?
Thanks to Pinterest where I’m finding some great new recipes that we’re having fun with! LOVE IT!!!
