The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Baked Eggs with Spinach

Baked Eggs

Happy Friday! I have an easy brunch recipe for you to whip up this weekend.

My mom and dad gave me these mini cocottes for Christmas and I had to put them to use. Aren't they cute? Aren't I lucky that they opened up a Le Creuset outlet store right near my parents house? Anyway, onto the eggs. You can use these mini cocottes or a ramekin to make this easy breakfast. Also, play around with what little surprises you put under the eggs. I went with a boatload of Spinach and some cheese, but you can add bacon, tomatoes, black beans, mushrooms, caramelized onions, the list could go on. 

Below is the recipe for 1 baked egg, just increase the ingredients based on the number of people you are serving.

Flatbread Breakfast Pizza

Flatbread Breakfast Pizza

Pizza for breakfast? Yes, please! I'm not talking about cold leftover pizza from the night before, although that's pretty good too, but pizza using more typical breakfast ingredients. 

I threw this breakfast together with ingredients I had on hand so feel free to mix it up based on what you have in your fridge. Is it okay for me to admit I almost always have cooked bacon on hand? I can justify this, I promise. I've had some issues with fires and bacon so my husband is the official bacon chef in our apartment. Even though there is just two of us, he usually opts to cook the entire pack and then we just freeze the extra pieces. All you have to do to reheat the cooked bacon is pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds, and there you go, I almost always have cooked bacon ready to use! Warning, it takes serious self restraint not to eat all of those cooked bacon pieces and actually freeze them.

So how about this weekend you wake up and make yourself a breakfast pizza and bloody mary?!

Sausage & Egg Casserole

Sausage and Egg Casserole

I have an idea, you should make this Sausage and Egg Casserole for brunch this weekend!

This recipe is great for breakfast on the weekends and perfect on Christmas morning. There's nothing like devouring this and opening presents with your loved ones! It's a good thing I have the distraction of opening of presents, otherwise I might just eat the entire pan. This casserole makes for a nice breakfast when having company over because it's easy and you prep everything a day ahead. 

You know what's also nice? The Baileys that snuck into this picture, pour a little into your coffee, and there's definitely no need to wait until Christmas to do that.

My mom was given this recipe from a friend many years ago and lucky for you I'm sharing it with all of my KMW readers today.

Ricotta Scrambled Eggs

Ricotta Scrambled Eggs

I had some leftover ricotta from when I made lasagna so I figured why not use it for breakfast. Can you think of a better way to start off your day than eating Ricotta cheese? I can't, well maybe if a bloody mary is involved, or some Bailey's in my coffee. I'll move onto the recipe, which my husband now asks for every weekend morning. Don't let him know that it's so quick and easy I could make it during the week.

Ingredients
1-2 teaspoons butter
4 eggs
1 teaspoon milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
2 slices of toast
chives, chopped

Directions
Melt butter over medium heat in stovetop pan. Meanwhile beat together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour eggs into pan once butter is melted. Let set for 1/2 minute to a minute until eggs begin to set. Then stir around until eggs are no longer runny, about 3 minutes. Remove eggs from heat and stir in ricotta.

Spoon eggs and ricotta mixture onto toast and garnish with chives.

Spinach, Mushroom, & Onion Frittata


Happy Friday! I thought I would leave you with something you could whip up for brunch this weekend. As I mentioned in this veggie egg scramble post, I think breakfast is a great way to fit vegetables into your diet as well as use up some extra veggies you have on hand. That is what I did with this frittata that I made at the lake this past week. I used spinach, mushroom, onion, and pepper jack cheese to give it a little kick. I used a dozen eggs since I was feeding 8 people, it was enough for everyone with a couple leftover slices. You can easily scale this down to 3-4 eggs (which is what I normally do). Just like any omelette or egg scramble you can use any variety of vegetables and/or meat that sound good to you.  The recipe is below and have a nice weekend!
