Last year I ate my weight in oats. We had some good times together, oatmeal and I, but after going hot and heavy for too too long, we’ve decided to take a little break. This has opened me up to so many new breakfast combinations! Here are a few of my favorites:
Mini Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Sandwiches w/ Spinach, Egg + Swiss
I’m a big fan of speedy breakfasts with little to no clean up. Well, technically any meal with minimal clean-up is fan-flipping-tastic but somehow I always get in over my head with dinner + recipe testing shenanigans. This week I plan on using and abusing my food processor, so while I dream of a sparkling + dish-less sink, here are a few speedy breakfasts to serve your friends and family at brunch or simply shake up the first meal of your day!
First up is a tasty brunch item that can play double -duty as an appetizer or a side dish.
Ina Garten has a gorgeous puff pastry tart that I have been dreaming about for days now. I didn’t have the time, ingredients or patience to pull it off but Sunday morning I flung myself out of bed to make this tart with what I already had on hand! There’s really no recipe needed for this baby =) I had a mini tube of flaky I-can’t-believe-I-bought-these Pillsbury biscuits and a perfectly ripe farmer’s market tomato that was begging to be used. I sliced the biscuits in half, topped each with a slice of tomato, a sprinkle of salt, and a ‘lil crumble of feta cheese. A speedy 10 minute bake in my toaster oven and these tomato-y tarts were ready to be devoured. They didn’t last long on the plate =) Does anyone know a natural but equally easy alternative to pre-made biscuits? Hook a girl up if you have a tip!
I whipped up a few mini egg “muffins” too… not as fun without the wonton CRUNCH! The glory of quiches is that any cheese, any veggie, and any dairy will work! Helloooo easy way to use up leftovers! <3
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 375F. Gently place wonton squares in a mini-muffin tray + spray with olive oil. Crack an egg into a coffee mug and beat with a fork. Add coconut milk or equivalent. Depending on your preference, you can toss the spinach into your beaten egg + milk mixture raw or sautee it in a small skillet with some olive oil and garlic until wilted (this is such a quick + easy method that I always take the extra step!). Toss a lil bit of spinach (tomato or jalapeno would rock too), garlic and feta into the bottom of each cup and top with egg mixture. Bake for approx 8-10 minutes or until quiche mixtures fluffs up into a “muffin-top” and the edges of your won-ton cups are toasty + golden brown.
