Maple Syrup Pancake Muffins

A few weekends ago Tony and I had our hearts set on a big breakfast of pancakes, home fries, and bacon…but then I ran across a recipe for Maple Syrup Pancake Muffins on Joy the Baker’s blog. What? Too good to be true? We thought so, and had to make them right away!

The muffins were a moist, sweet bread good enough to eat alone. Once you add the maple syrup glaze, you’re talking a whole different kind of good! The recipe mentions that you can add any other ingredients that you would typically put in pancakes. Next time: blueberries!

A perfect breakfast for a snowy morning

Empty plates and happy faces =)

Recipe: Mini Baked Omelet Cups

A perfectly portable, healthy, and easy breakfast – this recipe is awesome. Anything you can put into an omelet, you can bake into these cute omelet cups. Make a batch on Sunday night and reheat the leftovers to enjoy throughout the week.

The essentials: eggs, veggies, & cheese

Fresh baked
….and delicious!

Mini Baked Omelet Cups

– 4 cups steamed broccoli florets, chopped into small bits (or vegetable of your choice)*
– 1/2 red pepper, small dice (or vegetable of your choice)*
– 4 eggs
– 1 1/4 c. egg whites
– 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
– 1/4 c. grated cheese, your choice (I used a 4 cheese blend)
– salt and pepper, to taste
– cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and spoon vegetable mixture evenly into the muffin tin.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs, egg whites, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper until well blended. Pour evenly over vegetables into the cups, until about 3/4 full. Top with grated cheese and bake until cooked, about 20 minutes.
Servings 6
*Note: I used broccoli and red pepper because I already had it on hand. The variations you can make are endless… give these others a try:
– spinach, tomato/sundried tomato, and feta cheese
– peppers, onions, black beans, pepper jack cheese… top with sour cream or salsa
– cooked sausage and onions (less healthy but definitely delicious)

Who doesn’t love the weekend? The best part: cooking breakfast with Tony! Breakfast is my favorite meal but sadly I refuse to get up early enough to eat more than yogurt or instant oatmeal during the week. I eat breakfast at my desk pretty much everyday so sitting down to enjoy a “real” breakfast is such a treat….a luxury, really.Sit down to breakfast and enjoy the morning sunlight…

a recipe for the perfect weekend morning.

The ritual: wake up without an alarm, spend extra time playing with the pup, play some good tunes in the background, and then…get busy cooking.

Begley loves the weekends too!

Happy weekend!
