Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Sunday Morning breakfast can be quick and easy, and that s what I need some mornings! I always use this pancake Krusteaz because its low fat and high fiber as well, with a nice blend of whole wheat and white flour…Plus no one notices the difference 🙂

This AM I added in a snack pack size  of natural no sugar added applesauce and 1 tbsp cinnamon, and made them on the stove top. I chopped up a large beautiful Gala apple and cooked it for about 8 in on high with 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp brown sugar ,1 tbsp  cinnamon and added 1/4 cup of raisins . Placed on top of the pancakes and drizzled lite maple syrup on top…:) Lets just say the kids devoured it and actually enjoyed the cooked apples. As did my husband and I. Happy Sunday!


Egg White Breakfast Burrito

Another “Do-Over” recipe this morning! Waste not, want not! Couldn’t let this all go to waste from the other nites Cubanelle Stuffed Peppers..So I heated the mixture in the pan and then added in 5 egg whites and 1 egg beaten, scrambled it..Then topped with 2% cheddar cheese. Placed in Spinach wraps and served Mango Salsa on the side..Very filling, I could barely finish it, but not my husband …he devoured it after adding a little hot sauce to it 🙂

Nutella Breakfast Sandwich= Happy Children

What a great way to start your day! Whole wheat toasted with creamy, chocolaty Nutella in the middle! Great for a late nite snack attack too! 🙂 My children love it anytime of the day…But for breakfast its a nice distraction right before school….

Eggs in Purgatory

Sunday morning breakfasts are my absolute favorite! I always enjoy making something  special and sitting around the table with my family.

I  have so many to share with you and today’s is Eggs in Purgatory:

Preheat oven to400

Gather a  shallow baking dish

Marinara Sauce ( I use Newman s Own Organic Marinara in a pinch when I’ve run out Nana Jean’s  sauce in freezer)

4 eggs

Parmesan cheese

4  100 calorie English muffins or whole wheat sandwich thin

Pour marinara  into the shallow baking dish. Make 4 little  indents so you can fill with the raw egg. Crack each  egg into the 4  indents. Bake in oven until the egg whites settle…You still want the yolks to be runny. About 5-7 min. In meantime toast english muffins.When eggs done, place them on top of english muffins, sprinkle with cheese (optional red pepper flakes). Enjoy!

Serves 2
