Cream Cheese & Chive Omelet

This is a great quick breakfast for dinner meal. I love the creamy texture the cream cheese gives it but you could use cheddar instead if you like. Add some avocado & toast and you have yourself a meal! This recipe comes from Taste of Home.

Avocado Breakfast Pizza

I randomly came up with this pizza idea based on what I had on hand! And it turned out pretty great! Most people wouldn’t think of mixing breakfast and pizza but try it once and you’ll be hooked! I love the avocado base, it’s so savoury! This pizza is kind of of like Mexican meets Italian and breakfast at the same time…if that’s even a thing?? 😛

Time: 30 min prep + 20 min cook time

Servings: 8 slices

Calories/slice: ~364

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb pizza dough, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 mini cups of Wholly Guacamole or an Avocado
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 crumbled cooked bacon slices
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a bowl combine olive oil, garlic and guacamole or a pitted and peeled avocado. Spread sauce over pizza dough.
  4. Top with cheese, bacon and cherry tomatoes, leaving 3 (3-inch rounds) for the eggs.
  5. Place in the oven and bake until edges begin to brown, about 10-12 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven. Add eggs, gently cracking the eggs in the 3-inch rounds and keeping yolk intact.
  7. Place into oven and bake until egg whites have set and crust is golden brown, an additional 8-10 minutes.
  8. Top with chives and red pepper flakes and serve.

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Muffins

These muffins are surprisingly unexpected. At first you may think a sweet potato muffin sounds strange, and believe me so did I, but they are so moist and delicious! The cinnamon and sweet potato make for a delicious muffin and the glaze bumps it up another notch! This recipe is relatively simple to make and I have had lots of people ask for it. Once you make it you’ll know why!

Time: 20 min. – 1 hour + 15-18 min baking

Yield: 2 dozen

Calories/Muffin: 225

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-rising flour*
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (no added milk or butter)
  • 1 cup canola oil

Glaze

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1.5 teaspoons milk (sometimes I use cream if I don’t have milk)
  • 1.5 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon

*Can be substituted by placing 1.5 tsp baking powder and 0.5 tsp salt in a measuring cup and filling the rest with all-purpose flour to measure to 1 cup.

Notes: I have made this recipe with cold and hot mashed potatoes and the recipe worked out fine both times.
