Breakfast For DinnerMay 5, 2009 at 1:10 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments
Last night, breakfast for dinner just seemed like the perfect way to start off the week. We debated on savory (biscuits and eggs) or sweet (pancakes) for a while but eventually
James decided we decided to go with savory.
It’s nice because we have this Trader Joe’s Multigrain Baking & Pancake Mix allows us to do both! (plus it has a recipe for Blueberry coffee cake that looks killer) Gotta love having multi uses!!
Making the biscuits could not have been easier. Just mix the ingredients together, role out and cut into biscuits. Since we don’t have a biscuit cutter, I used the opening of a glass jar we had (I think it used to be either a salsa or PB jar), it worked like a charm! You just have to be sure to put flour around the opening when you cut each biscuit.
I cooked them in a pan so they could get a little crispy
Split between us, we had 2 egg whites and 2 eggs scrambled. Seriously, James has making eggs down to a science. These were perfectly fluffy and stuck together enough for me to put on top of my biscuit without having them fall off.
The biscuits were great. They aren’t as light and fluffy as normal white biscuits but that’s to be expected. I like whole grains because they give are heartier flavor and texture then white flour and these definitely had that.
James’ Review: “These were great. They were the perfect size with a wholesome taste and a crusty exterior. As a biscuit lover, I was happy”
The maple flavored sausages were so good! I don’t usually like to buy frozen meat imitations because of the price and the numerous ingredients but the flavor of them is just so good and I was pretty much ecstatic to get a coupon for these! The maple flavor in these was not overwhelming but definitely present. They had that great smoky flavor that all sausage does and was such a great compliment to the milder taste of the biscuit and eggs.
And a half of a grapefruit on the side to get some vitamin C and a little color into our dinner.
The most perfect bite (okay several bites) with Texas Pete on top of course:
Here’s a peek at James’ man plate, which had some cheese on it too
I was so happy and satisfied after this dinner. It didn’t make me want to go to work any more today but at least I went to bed with a happy tummy.
This morning I started my day like I’ve been starting so many of my mornings (okay how I start every morning). Green monster to go:
Mmm so good and refreshing! I’m craving one already! Good thing my co workers think I just have some coffee in there. I don’t know what they would say about my green monster…especially when I got weird looks when explaining what was on my salad (hummus – they thought it sounded gross! Oh well more hummus for meeee!)
Here’s some Toby love too:
Have a good night!
