LOADED BREAKFAST PANINI

This loaded breakfast panini is perfect to start your day with, or to serve to guests for a special treat.

Leftover ham was the inspiration for my loaded breakfast panini.  My husband loves fried egg sandwiches, but doesn’t let himself eat them too often.  In the summer months he loves them with a slice of fresh tomato.  One morning while fixing breakfast, I saw the leftover ham in the refrigerator and put this sandwich together for him.

Here is the recipe and I hope you enjoy this breakfast panini. Continue reading LOADED BREAKFAST PANINI

The children and grandchildren will be celebrating this fun holiday with a lot of sweet treats today, so I have some ideas to start their St Patrick’s Day breakfast on a healthier note.

LOADED CRUSTLESS MINI BREAKFAST SOUFFLE

The past year I have been making this breakfast  souffle  and wanted to share the recipe.  My husband wants to cut back on carbs, so a crustless breakfast dish is just perfect.

A lower carb, breakfast souffle loaded with eggs, veggies and cheese.

My recipe is a basic one but you can individualize your soufflé by adding any ingredients you have available.  My grand-children enjoy making their own.  I just set up little bowls with ingredients that I know they like, and they fill their dishes with what they want.  This is a good recipe for the children to make because you do not have to be exact with the measurements and they will eat it because they made it themselves.
