Breakfast Splits

Breakfast Banana Split | Recipe on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

 

Ahhhh, Pinterest. What in the world did we do before this came into our world? It’s almost as if we has to rely solely on Betty Crocker or our own imagination, ooh. . .the HORROR!

Trying to find new recipes to make breakfast exciting is a bit difficult and honestly, a big pain in my ass. Which is why I am grateful for Pinterest and the brilliance of others.

Interestingly enough, when I told the kiddos that we were having Breakfast Banana Splits that morning, they actually thought we were having banana splits. I’m not sure what that says about me as a parent that my children really thought I would give them actual banana splits before school, however, I did pretend to be shocked.

This turned out really well and even better, the kids loved it!

For the fruit sauce
  1. 1/2 cup strawberries
  2. 1/2 cup blueberries
  3. 1/3 cup sugar
  4. 1/3 cup water
  5. Bring to a boil, let thicken a bit and allow the fruit to soften, then put in blender/NutriBullet/Ninja and blend until smooth.
For the split
  1. 1 medium banana, peeled and sliced lengthwise
  2. Greek yogurt (plain or flavored)
  3. Granola
  4. Fruit Sauce
  5. Fresh fruit, sliced
Notes
  1. Check out the original recipe. I changed mine up a bit.
  2. FOR THE FRUIT SAUCE: In the original recipe, this called for fresh fruit. I used frozen and it worked out perfectly. And, I'm quite sure that any combination of berries will work perfectly.
  3. I know that the sauce recipe calls for 1/3 cup of sugar. I used half of that in mine. But if you decrease the sugar, decrease the water as well.
  4. For the greek yogurt, just use what you like. I just spread it over the banana, then sprinkled with granola.

“Homemade” Breakfast Sausage

“Homemade” Breakfast Sausage

I think breakfast, well breakfast on school mornings, is probably the most difficult meal for me. Even more so on Monday, when we’re coming off of the weekend. Here’s why: We get up around 5:30 am in our house and I’m no spring chicken, I am tired, but more importantly, I am trying to make a very serious effort to send my kids to school with nutritional food in their bodies. While cereal is the most convenient breakfast, my kids are not going to eat Wheaties or Raisin Bran and I know for a fact that Lucky Charms, while I agree are magically delicious, isn’t going to start their morning off right. 

So, while creating the lunch/dinner menu for my family, I went ahead and threw in breakfast as well. I came across this recipe A LONG time ago and never really attempted it, until now. I figured the best way to start off the week was with a pretty hearty breakfast of eggs, sausage, and biscuits. I know I said nutritious and no worries, I threw some broccoli in with the eggs and cantaloupe on the side, you know, to balance out that Grands biscuit.

This recipe really turned out good. It was super easy and I’m willing to bet, you have most of the ingredients in your pantry.

Please be sure to read the recipe AND the notes before starting.

Ingredients
  1. 1 lb. ground pork
  2. 1 tsp. kosher salt
  3. 1 tsp. sage
  4. 1 tsp. thyme
  5. 1 tsp. paprika
  6. 1 tsp. black pepper
  7. 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, add spices and stir together.
  2. In a medium bowl, add ground pork and spices
  3. Using your hands, mix spices and pork together.
  4. For sausage patties, form into equal size patties.
  5. Pan fry in skillet, on medium-high heat, 3-4 minutes per side or until no longer pink in the center.
Notes
  1. I put this together the night before. I separated my patties with parchment paper and put what I wasn't going to use the next morning in the freezer.
  2. Check out the link to the original recipe, she gives other ideas besides patties and her website is very informative.
  3. Instead of making patties, you could always cook this up once mixed together and have sausage crumbles. You could use them for breakfast burritos or even biscuits and gravy (which stomps all over the healthier element we're going for, but hey everything in moderation, right?
