Cold Breakfast: Cottage Cheese, Green Apples, Almonds, Cinnamon, and Honey

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Mornings are rough for me because I like to stay up reading books on my Kindle. I’ll head to bed at 10 PM and stay up until 12 AM reading. The problem with this is that I end up getting up a little later than I want. I enjoy making breakfast for my Hubs because it makes me feel like he’ll have a good day. This is ever so important to me.

Last night I thought I’d try to make breakfast at night and set the delay brew option on my coffee maker. This morning was really nice. It took me no more than a minute to bring breakfast to the table. It took me about 5 minutes making breakfast last night. Put the following in your choice of bowl or shallow cup. I like putting them in ramekins* or a shallow double-walled glass cup*.

2 cups of cottage cheese
1 Green Apple – chopped
2 handful of Almonds
1 tsp of Cinnamon
Honey – drizzle on top

Chill overnight. Serve in the morning.

Foodie Fridays: Baked Goodness Blueberry Crisps

These are delish. Breakfast or dessert, these hit the spot:

What you’ll need:
4 ramekins

Crisp topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup oats
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes

Goodness:
4 cups of blueberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Crisp Topping: In a large bowl add in the flour, brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, salt, and oats. Mix in the cubed butter. Keep this cold until it is ready to be combined with the next bowl of goodness.

Bowl of Goodness: In another large bowl, combine the blueberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and cornstarch. Completely coat the blueberries in the sugar and cornstarch. Divide the fruit mixture between the ramekins. Top with the blueberries mixed with sugar and cornstarch with the crisp topping. Place the ramekins on a baking dish and place them into the oven. Bake the blueberry crisps until the top is golden and fruit is bubbling.

This will take between 35 minutes and 40 minutes. Serve warm. You can even top it off with ice cream!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It doesn’t mean it has to take forever to make, either.

Here is the fast and simple recipe:
Multigrain Eggos
Banana. Just one.

Yes, pop the Eggos in the toaster over, slice your bananas and drizzle the syrup! OH! You can add a thigh for breakfast!

Alternatively. Thighs. What to do with them thighs. Remember last week’s Foodie Friday post?

Here is what to do with the thighs: Take them and put them on a plate with mixed rice and a side of steamed broccoli.
