Because Breakfast Should Never Be Half-Assed (Bonus)

Oversize Breakfast Biscuits

I know the “Make Ahead” Breakfast week has passed but here are some other recipes I’ve found that can be use for future breakfasts. The biscuits pictured above, for example. Just make the dough and keep it in the fridge. In the morning, stick ’em in the oven and let them bake while getting ready to go.

Forgetting Breakfast: Could Breakfast Be the Cure?

Vanilla Bean & Almond French Toast

I really want to try using the crock pot for more than soups because sometimes I feel like it needs to pull its weight around the kitchen a little more.  Also, I’ve been forgetting to eat breakfast a lot with needing sleep and trying to remember to bring my bag to work and wearing appropriate shoes for the weather. I feel like having something like this would definitely remind me to eat in the morning and that would make my day so much better.

When I started searching for recipes that I felt would actually make me want to make them I found a few. The accompanying photos however…. Not so much. Until I found this one: “Slow-Cooker Week: Vanilla Bean & Almond French Toast {Powernap} | The Naptime Chef

Last night I got my self together enough to make cornbread from memory. I think I got the temperature wrong, though. This recipe makes a rather dry and crumbly cornbread that is good for serving with chili or stew. I happen to have chili for lunch today. If I can’t get a good breakfast I at least need there to be a proper lunch.

Cornbread: Simple enough to make that I did it practically asleep

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup Crisco or butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk

Instructions:

  1. Dump all ingredients into a bowl and mix until the shortening/butter isn’t in massive clumps. 
  2. Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes.
