Snowed-In Breakfast

I bet you are wondering what is on that plate of goodness. Well, don’t be concerned because I’m going to tell you. Have you ever decided to make breakfast on a spur of a moment because it snowed and you couldn’t go out for breakfast? Well, this is the breakfast for you. Easy peasy, plus you probably have all the ingredients right at home.

It all started at 9am in the morning. I woke up (in quite an unpleasant mood), said good morning to my parents, we got in an argument over something trivial and unimportant, and then I got angry, and then at 10:14 on the dot…I decided to be happy. Then, I made this breakfast.

To start off: Broccoli and Bacon Creamy Quiche Tarts

Items Needed:
  • Two Cups chopped broccoli
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
  • dash of red pepper flakes, onion salt, and basil
  • 1/4 bacon bits
  • 5 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1/2 shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup 1/3 less fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 12 slices of thin deli ham


1. Preheat oven to 375* grease one 12-cup cupcake pan with cooking spray.

2. Place one piece of ham to form a cup into pan.

3. Place olive oil in the bottom of a small pan and on medium heat saute minced garlic, broccoli, and seasonings for 3 minutes or until broccoli starts to brown.

4. Let cool, meanwhile mix together softened cream cheese, all cheeses, bacon and eggs. Add cooled broccoli mixture.

5. Divide equally into the pan. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown and set. Let cool for 5 minutes, remove and enjoy. Refrigerate the leftovers.

mmm Pumpkin Pie waffles (AKA pie converted into breakfast food…I think I’m so deceptive haha)

  • Ingredients called for on the box for waffles (eggs, milk, oil)
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin

Creamy Vanilla Butter

Delicious, I have to say. Plus, it was so spur of the moment. You can do it too! Doesn’t it look so pretty? Oh wait, something is missing.

Of course! The cream vanilla butter. Perfect.
