I was browsing Pinterest last night (as usual) and found this adorable idea for Easter Breakfast!
Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday!
My children have been asking me all week if I’ll make “Green Eggs & Ham” for breakfast on Saturday, for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. (March 2) Of course – you just can’t say no to cuteness like that! (even though waking up early on Saturdays to cook is NOT my thing…)
Jamie here! Whether you’re throwing a little family New Years Eve party or a bigger gathering – you’ll always need to have some “Kid-friendly” finger foods on hand – here are my two favorite recipes for quick and easy party food that my kids love to eat (and I’ll admit, I love these too!)
Now let me start by saying that these are NOT the sausage balls that are super-greasy and brownish – but a more biscuity version that works well for parties or for an easy Christmas Morning finger-food breakfast! Basically – the BEST version.
Up here in the Northeast, we really like our apple cider donuts. I’m not quite brave enough to attempt donuts, but I was up for modifying my regular muffin recipe to make a healthier (ok, a *slightly* healthier) version of one of our favorite desserts.
So, here’s the recipe! Makes 12 muffins.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and grease muffin tin.
2. In a bowl, add:
3. Break up the egg so that it will spread evenly in the batter, then mix until everything is moist. This won’t take long, and don’t overmix!
4. Spoon in 1/3 cup of batter into each segment of the muffin tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes (keep an eye on them!)
5. Remove from oven and let them cool. While they’re cooling, melt the rest of that stick of butter in a bowl, and in a different bowl mix mix together sugar and cinnamon. When the muffins are still warm but not hot, you’re going to dip the top of the muffins in the butter, then dip them right into the cinnamon sugar and then set them on a plate to dry. (Or not.)
I figure that the oats and the honey have to make it at least slightly healthy… right? Maybe? A little bit? Well, regardless, it can’t be as bad as a bunch of apple cider donuts, and they’re simple enough and there are enough good deals on cider right now for this to be our favorite Fall breakfast treat.
The Muffin Man agrees.

I can’t believe I am about to type this, but Christmas is next week. It’s Thursday and Christmas is NEXT WEEK…I’m so excited! Usually for Christmas morning breakfast we have a huge breakfast with pancakes, bacon, eggs, all the good, heart attack on a plate stuff and all the mess. This year I don’t have time for the prep and mess because we are having family and friends over for dinner and I really don’t want to spend my entire day in the kitchen. I pulled out my recipe box today and put together this group of recipes for breakfast casseroles. I will need at least two casseroles to feed our family with 7 kids, 3 of whom are teenagers. I just can’t decide which to make because they are all so very yummy! Enjoy!

Jamie’s Family Breakfast Casserole:
Jamie here! I just had to add my family’s breakfast casserole. It’s a super-easy one that I always take to mom groups or other events – and the ingredients are very inexpensive as well. You can make this one the night before in a Pyrex dish – put the cover on and refrigerate. Then go to bed. In the morning, pop in the oven while the kids are opening presents and you’ll have a hot breakfast waiting for you!
Crescent Rolls ($.17 at Bi-Lo this week)
6- 12 Eggs (Depending on how many kids you’re feeding
1-2 Bags Shredded Cheese ($1 at Bi-Lo this week)
Crumbled Sausage ($1 a roll at Bi-Lo this week)
Nevermind – I just found a very good how-to HERE. So there’s no point in me writing one out!!

Stir together first 4 ingredients in large bowl until blended. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, stirring until blended. Stir in apple slices and 1 cup walnuts.

Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Spread with Cream Cheese Frosting; sprinkle with walnuts, if desired.
