Easy Like Sunday Morning and Family Favorites

Sunday morning is my favorite part of the weekend. It’s normally a day where Big J isn’t golfing and there are no errands to be run. Our mornings are quiet and peaceful, which is crazy to say when you have a toddler but it’s true. Lazy Sundays may mean that we are all piled in our bed watching Thomas & Friends until our tummies are growling so loud we can’t hear the TV. This is where are dilemma starts, what are we having for breakfast? The idea of slaving over the stove really ruins any notion of relaxation but I don’t feel like Sunday’s should start with a boring breakfast of cereal or granola.

These two recipes are so simple and easy that I guarantee your breakfast table will be filled with smiles!

The first recipe is one of our favorites, especially when we have family in town. Years ago, my friends Kaitlyn & Jeff (now officially known as The McCann’s) invited J and I over for brunch. Along with several other yummy, delicious items, one of the items they served was a Sausage & Egg Boat. I was hooked! Such a simple idea but it basically incorporates all the yumminess you want in a breakfast in one simple slice.  I normally always have bacon on hand so I use that instead of sausage.

Ingredients:

1 Large Loaf of Bread (I normally grab the homemade French at Kroger)

6 eggs

1/2 package of bacon

Shredded Cheese (dealer’s choice but we normally go with Monterrey jack)

S & P to Taste

Directions:

Cook up your bacon and dice up into small pieces

Scramble up those eggs!

Hollow out your bread (not too much! You don’t want it to fall apart in the oven)

Layer 1/2 of the bacon on the bottom of the bread

Add the scrambled eggs

Add another layer of bacon

Smother in shredded cheese

Place the bread on a baking sheet and put it in the broiler for 3 minutes.

Slice and serve!

Yum! Serve with a side of Sriracha for extra yumminess

Oh holy cheesiness

If I had to guess, this next recipe is probably the favorite of the J’s in my house. Both Big J and Little J can do some serious damage to a plate of these little cups of heaven. Back in February, I flew to NY for a friend’s bachelorette party. My In-Laws flew in to help care for Little J while Big J went to work. While I was gone, my MIL made yummy breakfast treats for the boys using whole wheat bread put into muffin tins with eggs and cheese. Big J was a huge fan and I thought it sounded delicious but then I thought to myself how can I make this ten times more fattening but equally yummy? The answer- Puff Pastry. I always have a package of this stuff in my fridge. I absolutely love it and often use it with chicken pot pies or cinnamon twists.

Ingredients:

1 sleeve of puff pastry

6 eggs- Scrambled

Bacon- Cooked and crumbled

Cheese

Butter to grease the pan

Direction

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Grease muffin tin

Cut your puff pastry sheet into 9 even squares

Fit each square into your greased muffin tin

I cook my bacon in the oven- less of a mess and they come out crispy!

Once the puff pastry is cooked start filling the cups! You may need to pat down the puff pastry a little to make room for your eggs!

Add a spoon full of eggs, a sprinkle of bacon and cover with cheese

Put the cups back in the broiler for 2 minutes- just until the cheese is melted

Ahhh bring on those delicious calories please!!!

Ahhh bring on those delicious calories please!!!

Hope this makes your Sunday family breakfast a little easier and more enjoyable! Of course you can make your own variety and add whatever meats you would like. My friend suggested making either with chorizo which I think sounds wonderful!

Have you tried these? What did you think?
