I LOVE breakfast for supper.
I love the idea of breakfast at any time of the day, except in the morning. I don't normally eat breakfast (yes, I know that is not good for me) but I do love breakfast foods.
So, I decided to fix not one, not two, but THREE brunch recipes from Gooseberry Patch's Christmas Kitchen as part of my In the Kitchen project! I made Baby Sister help me make these and then shared them with her family tonight.
I'm sharing two of the dishes we fixed tonight and will share the third later this week.
Here's recipe number 7 in my journey to cook 10 recipes from this book...Tina's Creamy Bacon Crescents. As you might recall, my goal is to stick with recipes with less than 5 ingredients...this one had three!
These were super easy to make...however, we questioned when they were done because the bacon wasn't quite crispy when the timer went off at 20 minutes. But, they were yummy. I didn't use a whole container of cream cheese so the flavor didn't come through as much as it might have if I layered it on thicker...next time I'll add more!
For the "main course," I decided on Scrambled Eggs in Toast Cups. You'll notice the recipe below has 9 ingredients and we added bacon (had some leftover from the crescent rolls) so that's double my ingredient limit!
These were a bit of a challenge, though Baby Sister did most of the work on these. I bought "very thin" white bread but it was still a bit hard to cram them into the muffin tins.
As I said before, we added bacon and left out the mushrooms. I'm sure you could add diced (I wouldn't do chopped) veggies to this if you'd like.
These were both very yummy and the toast cups would be a fancier version of a breakfast casserole on Christmas morning.
Just two more recipes to share before one lucky reader wins her/his very own copy of this Gooseberry Patch cookbook.
