Come See Tomorrows Breakfast!


So tomorrow is another Council of PTAs meeting morning.  This time it is our chapters turn to bring breakfast.  Early Childhood was teamed up with the High School so it at least it is a group effort.  For my part I wanted to bake something.  It actually gave me an excuse to get in the kitchen.  I've been so busy I think I almost forgot how to use the oven.

So everyone that knows me should know I love the Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman.   I would not so secretly like to become her.  Well she has a great recipe for these yummy orange muffins on her website.  Check them out, Good Morning Muffins.  So I just had to make them. I decided to make them as mini muffins instead so I decrease the oven temperature to 350 degrees and baked for 10-12 minutes.  I also substituted whole wheat panko bread crumbs (a pantry staple of mine) for the wheat germ and mixed it right in the sugar/spice mixture before sprinkling it on. Quite yummy I have to say!!

Then I had to make something a little savory.  For this I went to my Cheddar & Bacon Breakfast Biscuits. These are amazing!  They use biscuit mix, but don't fret if you're all out I have a great quick and easy recipe for biscuit mix included with the recipe.

Cheddar & Bacon Breakfast Biscuits
Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake Time: 8-10 minutes
Yields: 12 Biscuits

Ingredients:

Biscuits:
2 ½ cups biscuit mix*
1/3 cup plain yogurt (We use 0% fat Greek style)
2/3 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup precooked bacon, chopped- about 8 slices (We like to use nitrate free bacon)
1 tsp course ground black pepper

Topping:
2 TBSP unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp garlic powder

Biscuit Mix:
* If you do not have biscuit mix no worries you can make your own. (We like this version because
it uses vegetable oil vs. shortening)
Ingredients:
5 cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup baking powder
1 TBSP white sugar
1 tsp salt
½ cup & 2 TBSP vegetable oil

In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add oil and thoroughly mix all the
ingredients together. (It should have a lumpy consistency). Store mixture in an airtight container
in a cool dry place and it will keep for about three months.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet with butter, oil or cooking spray- or
you can use parchment paper to cover which is what we prefer.

In a bowl combine all of the ingredients and stir gently but completely. Mixture may appear
slightly crumbly but this is normal. Using a spoon, portion out 12 golf ball sized biscuits and place
on baking tray. Then pat the biscuits slightly with palm of your hand.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until light brown.

While biscuits are baking combine melted butter and garlic powder to make topping. When
biscuits are light brown remove from oven and immediately brush with garlic butter topping.
Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy!

And remember this recipe along with others can be found under the What's for Dinner Page.   And remember if you like our recipes please like that page!
