Italian Baked Eggs

My nana and I loved making Italian baked eggs on the weekends. We loved making everyone their own special serving to enjoy. My grandfather always had a very large garden and we would send him to pick fresh tomatoes for us! There is nothing better than a fresh fresh picked tomato! We would use whatever herbs we had handy.

 Nana and I would add green scallions to ours and diced onions to my grandfathers. Everyone had his or her special request.

Muffins with Pancetta and Herbs

Muffins with Pancetta and Herbs

Some mornings we just want muffins and a cup of coffee. I am Italian and there is always pancetta in my refrigerator. Using fresh herbs in these muffins makes them extra special but if you don't have them handy go ahead and use dried.

*CHEFS NOTE* A little tip on finely chopping pancetta: place in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm then you will find it easier to chop with a sharp chefs knife.

Portobello, Veggies and Egg

This is the perfect paleo breakfast for 2!  I cut up my onions, peppers and other vegetables in the beginning of the week so I have them handy.  On the weekends I love to create a new recipe using my left overs!  This one was a perfect Sunday breakfast for my hubby and I.  

I am also sharing my tip on making the perfect poached egg....  

Enjoy this Paleo breakfast recipe!

How to clean a portobello mushroom

Holding the mushroom in the palm of your hand and using a small spoon gently go under the stem of the mushroom and lift it out.  Use the spoon and carefully rub the spoon around to remove the gills then discard.  Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe around the mushroom.

Sun Butter and Macadamia Muffins

Every afternoon around 3pm I enjoy a cup of tea. I was looking around the pantry for something to eat with my tea and came up with these muffins. Keeping a stocked pantry comes in handy when you want a healthy muffin.

Tuscan Vegetable and Herb Baked Omelet

I love to serve my family or overnight guests this lovely omelet for a Saturday breakfast. It is a great way to use up those leftovers from the week. You can use any cooked protein in this frittata and would also make a great dinner with a side salad.

 

 

Zucchini Bread French Toast
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: medium

Zucchini Bread French Toast

Here's a secret! I always double the recipe and make 2 loaves of zucchini bread. We enjoy one immediately and then freeze the other. When our kids are home for the weekend, or we have guests at our lake house, i can quickly take this out of freeze and make French toast! This is really a gourmet breakfast or brunch to enjoy. I love to add fresh fruit on top then drizzle pure maple syrup.

 

*CHEFS NOTE* You can make the French toast in advance just preheat your oven to 100 F and place on a baking sheet until ready to serve. You can also add crushed nuts to the bread after you dip in the eggs! My granddaughter loves when I grate a little dark chocolate to her zucchini french toast.
