First make bacon waffles
Second fry up some eggs in the bacon grease
Then make fried chicken patties…
We used leftover chopped up chicken
Mixed it with mayonnaise

Enjoy with a beer! For breakfast? Well, it was a binge day!
Here’s an easy recipe for busy mornings… pre-make individual serving egg dishes! Here’s what we used, per person:
1/4 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup black beans
1 chopped up sausage (optional)
Mix everything together in individual oven-safe dishes
Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes
(or until egg has cooked through)
Refrigerate if you’re going to eat them in the newt couple days, freeze if longer.
To reheat, place cold dishes in oven
Reheat at 250F for 30-60 minutes (cover with foil to prevent additional browning)
Now you have time to go for a run or get the kids out the door while your breakfast cooks!
Or simply microwave if you’re in a hurry!
Last minute invite to a party, currently without a functioning oven, still needed to make a yummy dessert… wanted to make the Fresh Blueberry Pie, but couldn’t find blueberries at my local supermarket. So… no-bake cheesecake to the rescue! Stirred up the crust as instructed but added lemon zest, added 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to the filling and refrigerated for an hour. Mixed up some greek yogurt and honey to spread over the top, drizzled with a bit more honey and decorated with lemon slices! Fabulous last minute dessert!
Over a bed of lettuce, layer chopped up cucumber, celery, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, avocado and, of course, bacon. Dress with a pre-made vinaigrette or olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Dinner time! Grilled up some chunks of steak from trader joe’s, sautéed the onions and bell peppers, layered all that on top of black refried beans and quinoa. Served it up with a taco filled with sour cream, avocado, cheese and bell peppers. Easy, yummy dinner!
Whipped up some pumpkin pancakes (if you don’t want to make them from scratch, TJ’s has a decent box mix) cooked them normally on the first side but before I flipped them, I sprinkled a fine layer of brown sugar over the dough. Once flipped, they cooked up nice and sticky! A perfectly indulgent Sunday morning breakfast!

Our newest idea: Mindless Monday! What’s deal with that? Well… we’ll be the first to admit that some of our recipes are a little time consuming. So we thought we’d highlight some of the easier, quicker, less time-intensive options. This also means that the recipes are open to interpretation. Think of Monday recipes like the Pirate Code “they’re more like guidelines.”
Saute the spinach and onions in an oven proof pan until spinach is wilted and onions are translucent
Whisk the eggs (8) together with some milk (1/2 cup), salt and pepper
Add sun-dried tomatoes, and chopped up sausage to the spinach in the pan, if you want
Pour the egg mixture over all of it
Pick up the spinach with your spatula to let the egg seep under
Cook on medium until egg is about half way done
Layer on as much goat cheese as you want (or not!)
Pop into the preheated oven (400F) for about 15 minutes
Done when the egg is cooked through!

Prepare brownie mix per the instructions on the back of the box
Pour just enough of the batter into the pan to cover the bottom
Shove as many oreos as you can, in a single layer, into the batter
Pour the rest of the batter over the oreos and smooth
Bake as instructed
Try to wait for the brownies to cool so you don’t burn yourself stuffing them in your mouth!
