I woke up this morning wanting to do something a little special for my BFs breakfast. I pulled out my trusting bible, the red and white plaid BHG (Better Homes and Garden) cookbook. I was looking through trying to decide … Continue reading
I luv fresh baked goodies for breakfast but really who has the time or energy to get up and do that? Not me for sure! I luv to sleep and its takes me a couple of cups of coffee to get going in the morning and by then I would have to be out the door or getting busy for the day. This solves that problem.
The night before assemble all your ingredients.
Best Ever Muffins from BHG New Cookbook Circa 1968
1 3/4 c sifted flour
1/2 c sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 well beaten egg
3/4 c milk
1/3 c oil
Heres the make ahead part. Take all the dry ingredients and sift together in a big bowl, make a well, like this
Now take all the wet ingredients and do the same thing.
The next morning I pushed the button for the coffee, turned off the crockpot, set the oven to 400 and got the wet bowl out of the fridge. Stir and mix with the dry. Add fruit of your choice. Done!
Spray your pan well don’t mess with muffin cups this early or you could set them up the nite before. Add batter to pan, 3/4 full. Pop in the oven.
Now go take a hot shower or enjoy a cup of coffee, whatever you need to do, breakfast is handled 😀
In 20 mins I’ve had coffee, showered, got my face on and am ready to eat.
I made 12 muffins but you could get 6 big ones if you wanted. So there you have it breakfast that super easy, delicious and good for you.
I understand that we are all super busy these days and its hard to make a good nutritious breakfast and get everybody ready at the same time, so I am the hunt for make ahead recipes so that when I go back to work, life will still be run smoothly.
This is part 1, the main course so to say, Crockpot Breakfast Casserole. You are going to luv this one, its super easy and cooks while you sleep. Its even a great way to clean out the fridge at the end of the week, cause I am sure if you are like me you have tons of leftover bits and pieces.
Assemble your ingredients and start by spraying your crockpot so your potato base doesn’t stick.
Next meat… You could skip this all together again your choice.
Next its veggie time.
Ok now cheese, I luv the big bag from Walmart its a taco blend and is perfect for practically everything and for a lazy girl who doesn’t want to spend hours shredding cheese all month its perfect! Bonus $8 lasts all month, and super cheap!
Next prepare your eggs. I used 8 but there are only 2 of us and I wanted to go big and have leftovers. I would say family of 4 use 12.
Spice it up according to your taste, Salt n Pepper of course. I also added Garlic, Paprika and Parsley. I think next time I am going to add some Celery Salt too and cut the regular salt.
To your egg mix you also want to add 1/2 to 1 c milk depending on how many eggs you use. You could also use heavy cream or half and half for a richer base. I think I will try this when its for company.
Now just pour egg mix over the rest and turn on low for about 6 hours.
And now the finished product…
Thats it easy peasy! Hot breakfast with no morning crazyness involved!
