Saturday Morning Breakfast

Most days we have cereal and or toast but every once in awhile I get fancy, especially on the weekends. I made a delicious egg bake, cheese grits and I put bacon on the George Foreman grill! My small grill gave out on me, so I had to dig out my HUGE grill from storage and I grilled bacon on it!!! It was crispy and amazing and so much fat drained off. Breakfast was amazing and later that day we went to a Birthday cookout for our friend and we had so much fun - and food - that by the time we got home around midnight we were too tired and too exhausted to want salad or anything else. But we got back on track for Sunday night. But that post will come after this one. Here's the recipes for the morning. If you're in the mood for a big breakfast, this will satisfy just fine!

Egg Bake
-4 eggs
-1/2 cup milk
-pinch of salt
-1 tablespoon maple syrup
-canister of biscuits
***Mix and beat the eggs with all ingredients and add the biscuits uncooked on top of the mix. Preheat oven according to biscuit directions and cook at least 2-3 minutes longer than package since the biscuits are sitting in liquid. If you like, add the syrup to the egg mix or on top of the finished product.

Chicken Breakfast patties
-1lb ground chicken
-2 tablespoons groundflax seed
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-pinch of nutmeg
-1 tablespoon of brown sugar
-1 teaspoon bell's seasoning
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 egg
***Mix together all ingredients. The patties will be moist. Drop several spoonfuls of mix into a pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter if you prefer. Cook on each side until cooked through.

Cheese grits
***Cook grits according to package directions. Take off of heat. Add a few slices of American cheese and a pat of butter and mix until cheese is melted. There's no need to add salt to cheese grits since the cheese is so salty on its own.
