Last night we had breakfast for dinner! We love to do that on occasion. I was trying out a new pancake recipe I thought of doing and since our mornings are so hectic with people working or whatever, but not together, dinner seemed like the best time to try it out. I will be sharing that recipe with you later, but the whole idea of breakfast spurred this weeks Friday Fave question:
What is your favorite breakfast food?
First of all, Lindsey! This was a no brainer! Her entire life, Lindsey has loved cereal. When she was a little girl, if we did something different for breakfast, she would have to have cereal later for a snack or she felt deprived. She still likes to eat cereal as a snack. Her favorite cereal is Special K. I have to admit, I really like Special K, too. Especially the chocolate and the strawberry varieties.
In case you were wondering, here are all of our favorite breakfast cereals:
Lindsey-Special K Alicia-Kix Maddy-Honey Bunches of Oats and Helen-Golden Grahams!
Because Alicia lives in an area where the climate is cooler all year round, her choice sounds like a winter choice to those of us living in Phoenix. She says that she loves buttered toast with hot cocoa. (throat clear) I am sure that she means a Hot Coca Bomb in one of the delicious flavors that we make them in! It is pretty delicious to dip your toast in a mug of hot cocoa!
Maddy says that her favorite breakfast food is hash browns with catsup on the side. She does make some good smelling and tasting savory hash browns some mornings! I like them with a fried egg on top.
I have mentioned in other posts I believe, like this one, that I adore French Toast. Close to Christmas last year, I did a Pumpkin Gingerbread French Toast With Lemon Sauce that was delicious.
Since Sunday is Father's Day and Monday is my husband's birthday, my girls and I decided that we should feature his favorite breakfast food, which is Biscuits and Gravy!
Here is how I make the biscuits. I use the recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook that we have had since we were married. It is always my go to first cookbook. This link is to the 75th Anniversary Edition! If you are new to cooking or a newlywed, I highly recommend this cookbook!
Next, here is how I make the gravy. This is a basic cream gravy that I make with bacon or sausage drippings. So, first, cook your bacon. Now, take off most of the fat, just save a little with all of the left over crispy bits in the bottom of the pan. Now, click on the pictures for directions.
Now you are ready to serve the gravy over split biscuits! I like eggs on the side as well! This isn't the healthiest breakfast known to man, but it sure does pack a lot of old fashioned goodness! I make it for my husband on special occasions.
There are so many great breakfast choices out there! What are your favorites?
