We're at it again with #Whatsfordinner! We are certainly missing our weekend brunch plans and have decided breakfast for dinner is just what the doctor ordered. Rummage through your cabinets, or add some items to your next shopping trip to try out these Pantry Brunch Ideas. And of course don't forget the champagne!!
The Big Breakfast
The go to brunch at our house is roasted sweet potatoes, eggs and turkey bacon! We may also add some avocado, fresh fruit or peanut butter toast if we are really wanting to go all out. The sweet potatoes are what make the breakfast and are super simple. Chop the potatoes into small cubes, drizzle with olive oil, add some sea salt and pepper and chopped fresh garlic. Mix them around a bit to season evenly and then bake at 350-375 for about 30 minutes. Cook time and temperature will vary depending on how many potatoes you are cooking and your desired level of crispyness! You can also add red potato for some variety if sweet potatoes aren't really your thing. We even made our own peach juice ice cubes to add to our champagne this past weekend. They were delish!
This may seem like an impossible eat during quarantine but French toast is super simple and essentially all you need is eggs and bread. If you’re a spice hoarder and have these items in your pantry, check out this delicious recipe from the Food Network. For this recipe, you need cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, butter, eggs, milk, vanilla, white bread, and maple syrup. Quarantine calories don't count!
This may be a recipe you have to substitute with what you have but they’re easy and certainly not too out of the ordinary! These oatmeal muffins look delicious and can be replaced with any fruit (or no fruit) that you have! All you need is old-fashioned rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, and one apple. Perfect snack or side to a plate of eggs and bacon!
Not in the mood for French toast? Check out its distant cousin – old fashioned pancakes. Yum! This is such a simple dish that includes flour, salt, milk, eggs, butter, and white sugar. What’s great about pancakes is the ability to customize them any way you want them with anything you have! Whether you want to add fruit, nuts, chocolate, chips, M&Ms, It’s totally your own. Bon Appetit!
Not everyone is an A.M. sweet- tooth and that’s just fine. Check out this delicious recipe from Boston Magazine featuring Savory Oatmeal. Yep, savory oatmeal. This recipe serves two and is perfect for those cozy mornings (or evenings). All you need is rolled oats, tomato, onion, pesto, olive oil, eggs, and garlic. And, if you don’t like one ingredient, don’t have one or two, or need to use something in the fridge – that’s perfectly fine! Think of these as a guideline – Go crazy with it.
