The Perfect BLT

 
The Perfect BLT

Any type of bread

Bacon

Tomato

Lettuce

Avocado

Fried eggs

Mayo

A dash of hot sauce, optional

Salt and pepper
Toasting the bread is optional. I prefer it lightly toasted with no color on it. It works better to hold in the juices so it doesn’t turn the bread soggy so fast. Mayo both slices, add the lettuce, bacon, tomato. Lightly salt and pepper the tomato. Then add the sliced avocado and top with a fried egg. (Runny or not, it’s amazing!)
Enjoy!

 
Note: a fork may be needed! Lol 😉

Mushroom Poached Eggs

10356022_10202625246367913_1190863782600630470_n

Cream of mushroom

1 can of milk (measure with the cream of mushroom can)

garlic salt

cumin

minced dry onion

creole seasoning

parsley

salt and pepper

eggs

In a bowl combine all ingredients except the eggs. Whisk well. Pour it in a large skillet. Slowly break eggs, one by one and drop them into the cream of mushroom mixture. Should be able to fit 6 eggs if you space them properly. Cook on medium until it starts to bubble a bit. Then turn down to low. Eggs sometimes stick to pan, just use a spatula to make sure it doesn’t stick. Cook them however long you like your eggs. Less cook time means runny eggs. Longer cook times means solid eggs. Serve with buttered toast and left over drippings from the pan!

Cinnamon Muffins!

  

Muffins

1 1⁄2 cups flour
1⁄2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1⁄2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 egg, beaten
1⁄2 cup milk
1⁄3 cup butter, melted

Topping

2 tablespoons sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄4 cup butter, melted

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and allspice.
Add egg, milk and butter.
Stir into dry ingredients until moistened.
Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until done.
For topping combine sugar and cinnamon.
Brush top of warm muffin in butter and dip top of muffin into sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Also, I like to make a brown sugar glaze sometimes. Which is what you see in you picture. A little brown sugar and butter melted in a pot on Low. Or you could even do a confectioners sugar and milk glaze. However, a glaze makes that sugar/cinnamon topper a little soggy so if you go with a glaze, skip the topping. 

Southern Cinnamon Toast!

 
Yes I know, it’s super simple, how can someone mess this up!? Why does anyone need directions on something so simple?! Well, let me assure you, as I have personally seen it happen, sometimes people DO need simple directions. Here is my southern cinnamon toast my momma made me just about every weekend of my life. 🙂

Bread

Butter

Cinnamon

Sugar

So you take the bread, spread butter on it FIRST. Then sprinkle sugar; enough to cover the butter at least. I like a little extra sugar because it melts and turns crisp! Last, you sprinkle the cinnamon. In that order. Don’t mix the cinnamon and sugar. That is just, well yuck in my opinion. Stick that baby under the broiler until the ends turn light brown (maybe 5 minutes, just gotta watch it!) It ain’t gotta be pretty to taste good! I can promise you that.

Enjoy! 🙂

Sausage Cinnamon Grilled Cheese French Toast!

464

Yes I said it, sausage cinnamon Grilled Cheese french toast. Oh my goodness! Simply amazing. A staple in our house for Sunday morning breakfast. We have even had it for supper a time or two! Here goes:

Bread (white or wheat works)

2-4 eggs (beaten)

A few dash of milk

Cinnamon

Few tbs of brown sugar

1 tsp of vanilla extract

Sausage

Syrup

Shredded cheese

Ok, so first you cook your sausage until its brown, drain it. Then add a little bit of syrup the the sausage and mix it and let it sit. While that is sitting, beat your eggs in a shallow bowl. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and milk. Mix with a whisk. Get your pan nice and hot. Add some non stick spray. First, your basically making french toast. You dip the bread in the egg mixture on ONE SIDE ONLY. Fry that in the pan. Take it out and fry another piece one side only.

To put together the sandwich, you will take one piece of bread, lay it cooked side UP, add your cheese, sausage and a little more cheese. Top it with the other bread cooked side DOWN. So with your finished product, it shows a sandwich made with uncooked bread on the outsides. (I will take pictures when I make this again. That way you can follow the steps if needed. It is more simple than it sounds.) Dip the sandwich into the egg mixture again, then flip it over. Add to the hot pan and continue to fry the sandwich just like a regular grilled cheese on both sides.

Once done, add syrup over the top and serve warm. Its super yummy! More pictures coming asap!
