WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Making The Grade: Breakfast On The Go

Making The Grade: Breakfast On The Go

The Diva's Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes
Batter for one batch of pancakes (you can use your favorite pancake mix or recipe)
 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4  cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon

In a  microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon until smooth.  Microwave on high for 10 seconds. Spoon the cinnamon mixture into a pastry bag  fitted with a medium tip, or, simply use  a sandwich or Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.
Pour pancake batter onto hot griddle.  When you see the bubbles beginning to form, pipe the cinnamon mixture onto batter in a swirl shape.  When pancake edges  are lightly browned, flip and cook until done.

Cream Cheese Icing
2 cups powdered sugar
2 ounces cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp heavy cream, half and half, or milk
Using a hand-mixer, mix until smooth and pour the icing into another pastry bag or Ziploc bag. Squeeze it over the hot pancakes in any design you want!

Back to School Breakfast Pizzas
Ingredients
1 whole-wheat English muffin, split
1 hard boiled egg, sliced
1 small tomato, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon butter
2 slices turkey bacon, diced
¼ cup shredded cheddar, mozzarella, or Colby-jack cheese
Chopped fresh basil, for garnish
Directions
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a small baking sheet with foil.
Place the English muffin halves cut-side up on the baking sheet. Spread butter on each half. Top each with tomato, boiled egg slices, and then sprinkle the diced turkey bacon over the egg slices, then top with the shredded cheese. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown. Sprinkle with optional basil, if using.

Breakfast Quesadillas
Ingredients
1 pound Thin Bacon
Butter
1 Onion, Diced
1 red Bell Pepper Seeded And Diced
8 large eggs
1/4 cup Half-and-half
Salt And Pepper, to taste
6 whole grain Tortillas
1 ½ cups Freshly Grated Cheddar And Monterey Jack Cheese
Sour Cream, For Serving
Preparation Instructions
Fry the bacon, then remove it to a paper towel-lined plate. Pour off the excess grease.
Return the skillet to the stove over high heat. Add a couple of tablespoons of butter. When it's melted and the skillet is hot, add the onions and bell pepper. Stir it around and cook until the veggies are starting to soften and turning golden brown. Remove to a plate and set aside. Set the skillet back on the stove over medium-low heat.
Mix together the eggs, half-and-half, and salt and pepper in a bowl and scramble in same skillet.
To assemble the quesadillas, place a tortilla on a buttered griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Add a layer of cheese, a layer of cooked veggies, a layer of bacon slices, a layer of eggs, and another layer of cheese. Top with a second tortilla.
Cook on both sides, flipping carefully, until the cheeses are totally melted and filling is hot. Repeat with the other tortillas and ingredients.
Slice the 3 quesadillas into four wedges each. Serve on a plate with sour cream or salsa. Or, just wrap in foil and let the kids grab them and head out the door!
