Breakfast, Brownies and Mini Turkey Loaves

I’ve been so lazy this past month. Have you noticed?! No food posts since August 27, but I continue to cook and eat. Can’t avoid it.

Just for today, some photos of foods I’ve been eating ~ no detailed recipes, only brief descriptions and comments.



BACON, EGG & CHEESE CUPS
This breakfast (or brunch) dish starts with bacon, so why in the world would you need to grease the muffin tin? Because, in spite of the bacon grease, they stick to the muffin tin. Maybe lining each “cup” with parchment paper would work. Start with bacon, sprinkle with shredded cheese, pour in eggs mixed with chopped chives or green onions, salt & pepper. Bake in a preheated 350-degree fahrenheit oven 30-35 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the egg mixture is “set”. If you don’t eat them all, wrapped them carefully and freeze for future consumption!



A HEARTY BREAKFAST
Scrambled eggs, toasted homemade English Muffin Bread, strawberries and what I believe was a slice of Spam.



BROWNIES
I bought a brownie divider pan and just love it. After baking them, I decorated with nuts, chocolate chips and Reese’s PB cups. After they cooled, I simply lifted the divider out and was left with twelve equal sized brownies.



MINI TURKEY AND VEGGIE MEATLOAVES
Yes, it’s the brownie divider pan. It worked on mini turkey loaves, too. Follow the Food Network recipe and each piece (when using this divider pan) is about 125 calories. I ate two, then wrapped and froze the rest individually. For this recipe, I placed the brownie pan in a cookie sheet to catch any grease... the pan consists of three parts and the bottom part has a big square opening that is covered by the second part. While the brownie batter didn’t leak through, I knew the grease would.

  5. I figured you must still be eating... LOL It is just amazing how easy it is to cook without taking all the photos and testing it in your kitchen and then writing a post and then watermarking the photos and then testing your recipe again. Just cooking and eating is a breeze. I love those little egg cups and a brownie divider is a great idea. My kids don't like nuts but I do and this will prevent any little nut coming into their personal brownie space. wishing you a super week. Take Care, BAM

    1. Hello, BAM. I keep my iPad charging on the kitchen counter, so it's gotten to be a habit to grab it when cooking and take at least one photo. My iPad gets rather sticky at times :)
