Breakfast Is My Favorite Meal

…and I don’t eat it enough. During the week, breakfast for me is coffee even though what I really want is a hearty plate of french toast and eggs. Mmmmm. Luckily, the weekends are devoted to cooking and eating ALOT and I always start off the mornings with a breakfast bang. Take last weekend. I was craving, what else, french toast and eggs but not just any french toast…I wanted hawaiian french toast made with the little sweet rolls from Kings Hawaiian Bakery. Double mmmm. Paired with a broccoli egg frittata, it was simple yet yummy and made my day.

Kings Hawaiian French Toast:

– 2 eggs, beaten

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

– powdered sugar

– maple syrup

– six small little Kings Hawaiian rolls (the mini ones)

– 1 tablespoon of butter

Beat two eggs and mix with vanilla extract. Cut rolls in half and dip into egg mixture. Heat a griddle with butter and when the pan is hot enough, throw the rolls on there and cook til each side is golden brown and crisp. Sprinkle powdered sugar and drizzle a little maple syrup and try not to eat it too fast.

Broccoli Frittata

– 1.5 cups of frozen broccoli

– 3 eggs, beaten

– parmesan or pecorino cheese

– tablespoon of olive oil

– salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat your oven to broiler status. Beat three eggs. Saute the frozen broccoli in a tablespoon of olive oil in an oven-safe skillet. When the broccoli is cooked through, pour the eggs on top and cook over medium heat until the bottom is set (you can see when it is because it starts getting firm along the edges.) Shave a couple of tablespoons of parmesan or pecorino on top of the eggs and then set it under the broiler for about 2 minutes. Cut into four pieces and chow down!
