back to breakfast

Once fall comes, our schedule becomes more solid again as do our meals. Since we try to get started on schooling by a certain time, I typically will fix a hot breakfast for the kids as they wake up around the same time which is quite different from the summer where everybody tends to grab their own thing when they get up.

Our breakfast menu rotates through a variety of things. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, English mcmuffins, bagels, stove-top oatmeal, oven oatmeal and applesauce, chocolate malt o'meal (which is apparently a family acquired taste as neither my daughter-in-law or son-in-law like it AT ALL), bacon or sausage with eggs and maybe fried potatoes, and cold cereal on Saturdays. Add fruit as desired with some orange juice. I think that's it... My daughter and husband will be coming for a long weekend and she's already requested regular French toast, stuffed French toast with blueberry sauce, and she's bringing along a French toast recipe she wants me to try that uses angel food cake - doesn't that sound heavenly?!

Another wonderful addition to our breakfast menu for those of us who are challenged in flipping these in a pan, is an easy omelet recipe a friend shared with me (thank you, Tina!) You get a pan of water boiling as you take a heavy duty ziplock sandwich bag to construct your omelet in. Two eggs and whatever fixings you like - cheese, green peppers, crumbled bacon, tomatoes, onions, etc. - squish it all around and seal the bag tightly. Throw it into the boiling water for nine minutes. Flip the bag over and boil for nine more minutes. When it's done, just slide it out of the bag onto your plate and you have a perfectly cooked beautifully shaped hot omelet! YUM! I will caution you that if you have several omelets to make, use more pans of boiling water otherwise your omelets will come out in very funny shapes LOL!

Hmmmm, breakfast is ready now but most of my kids aren't up yet as it's another gray gloomy rainy day. Time to rouse the roost!

Anyone have other tasty breakfast ideas?

Enjoy a good breakfast as you start down your garden path this morning!

Ah, breakfast! I never used to eat breakfast, but now I can't go without it. We are usually all going at different times in the morning so it's a grab your own. My husband love breakfast, so when he is home we have these elaborate brunches and they are yummy!
