Breakfast quesadillas. I got the idea from here breakfast quesadillas ? Eat, Live, Run



Mine were scrambled eggs, sausage and cheddar, served with salsa verde and orange juice. I was really wishing I'd had some cantaloupe to go with it, though. Or some fruity side. I hadn't thought that far ahead though.

I used a cup of honey in this recipe. i liked the oat cakes Beau ate his and Scarlett I do not know what her deal was as she was spitting out chocolate chips. Any ways you definately need to SPRAY THE CUPCAKE LINERS!

I made Vegan blueberry pancakes, homemade apple sauce and bacon. The pancakes sucked, I think that my high altitude screwed with it or something. From all the reviews they should have been good but they were not... The first one I made and cooked how I was supposed was really doughy, so I added some more "Milk", then more and some sugar. Finally I got it so they were edible but still sucky. Fluffy Vegan Pancakes Recipe - Food.com - 128637
The applesauce was really easy, I peeled, cored and sliced my apples (I tried to use my new apple corer and peeler but I think older winter apples just don't work that well with it) I put them in a pot with a little bit of apple juice (I use water sometimes too) and cooked for 20 min, then I put in a dollop of maple syrup mashed and served.
The bacon I put ona foil covered pan and baked at 400 for 12-17 min.

These were a fairly common breakfast growing up and I was excited to try making them myself. I wasn't fond of the dough and will likely just use biscuits next time.

For breakfast (week 11) Chris made Huevos Motuleńos. I wasn't expecting to like it
but it was REALLY good. The following is copied from his post about it:

Quote:
I thought this was really good, though it made for a pretty heavy breakfast. All the flavors worked very well together (I did forget to add the peas). There are quite a few different recipes out there for this, and I didn't quite follow any of them. Here's what I went with:

Saute/toast a corn tortilla in a skillet with a little oil and set on plate.
Slice a plantain, lightly saute, and place around the tortilla.
Make some refried beans, and cover the top of the tortilla.
Fry an egg, and place on top the beans.
Top egg with salsa/tomato sauce, queso fresco, and pidgeon peas.

Corn beef hash and baked egg



Tracey's Culinary Adventures: Baked Eggs with Corned Beef Hash

She made this recipe as a reviewer of Emril Lagasse's new cook book coming out in the fall so i had to fake it. Since I baked my egg yesterday I had an idea how to do this.
