Lentils with an Egg Hat

Lentils with an Egg Hat

In the Czech Republic, many restaurants stay open until the wee hours of the morning after the changing of the New Year, but offer a limited menu. The offering usually includes a lentils dish, since lentils represent luck and wealth. Like a breakfast hash, the lentil portion can be made the day before and quickly reheated and topped with a freshly cooked egg. The recipe below includes small diced ham with vegetables and herbs. It can easily be made vegetarian with just a couple changes.

A favorite in the fall living so close to the orchard. A recipe handed down from my grandmother and adapted to modern life and kicked up a notch.

CRUSTLESS BREAKFAST SALAD PIZZA

CRUSTLESS BREAKFAST SALAD PIZZA

Years ago I had a very extensive and bountiful herb garden and this recipe started out as a simple herb quiche for a brunch I was hosting, but the “gluten free’s” and the “cutting down on carbers” won out so it became a frittata. Then someone suggested a salad might be nice to add to the menu, and someone else suggested making a breakfast pizza so I just combined all three into this dish. Frittatas however traditionally have cheese in them or on them as do pizzas. I had no cheese! So I used Mayonnaise and a star was born! Enjoy!

Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls

Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls

These cinnamon rolls are very soft, with a sweet cinnamon filling. They’re baked in a slightly sweet, slightly salty glaze that makes them wonderfully gooey. The inspiration for this recipe comes from two of my favorite Youtube channels: Laura in The Kitchen and Buzzfeed Tasty.

This is a recipe I created. It’s great as an appetizer to wow your guests, just as a snack or a side to dinner. Pan roasted mushrooms meet lovely burrata cheese and amber honey. You cannot lose.

Bacon Pancake Stack and Zing Whipped Cream

Bacon Pancake Stack and Zing Whipped Cream

When you want breakfast for dinner but also want to feel like you’re in a fine dining establishment, you make bacon pancakes with zing whipped cream! I recommend making this when you want to share a filling meal. Suitable for date night and week night, alike.
These fluffy, bacony pancakes, fried in rendered bacon fat, pair wonderfully with the bright notes from hand-made lemony whipped cream.
