4 Week Menu Recipes- Breakfast: PART 1

Over the next couple days, I'll be posting the recipes I use in my 4 Week Menu. (Keep in mind that these recipes feed my family of 12, so you may need to do some reducing if your family is smaller.)

Let's start with Breakfast! (My favorite meal of the day!)

Rachel's Whole Wheat Pancakes/Waffles
4 cups whole wheat flour
6 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 beaten eggs
4 Tbl. oil
4 Tbl honey
2 cups milk
2 cups water

Heat griddle to 375 degrees. (For waffles, heat the waffle iron.)

Stir dry ingredients together until well incorporated. In another bowl, beat the wet ingredients together; add to the flour mixture. (Will be lumpy-- don't over-mix!)

Bake immediately on the hot griddle, turning once. (Makes LOTS!)

Rachel's Breakfast Egg Bake
(2 varieties)

1)Bacon and Cheese Egg Bake
2 Tbl. butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/3 cup milk or cream
12 large eggs, beaten
1/4 pound shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices crumbled cooked bacon (or diced ham slices)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and heat skillet on medium heat. Melt butter in hot skillet and sautee' onions until clear. Combine remaining ingredients, add onions and mix well. Pour into a greased 9X13 inch casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes. (Sprinkle more cheese to melt on top after baking, if desired.)

2) Sausage Baked Egg Casserole
1 pound ground pork sausage
1 small finely chopped onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
12 large eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
1 1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook sausage, onion, and garlic powder in a large skillet over medium heat until the sausage browns. Drain well.

In a large bowl, combine milk, eggs, mustard and salt for one minute. Stir in cheese and sausage. Pour into an ungreased 9X13 pan and bake, uncovered in oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. (Can be refrigerated overnight; just add 10 minutes to the baking time.)

Breakfast Cake (Grandma Nielsen's)

3 1/3 cup flour
1/2 tea. salt
3 tea. ground cinnamon
1 tea. ground nutmeg
1/2 tea. ground cloves
5 tea. baking powder
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cup milk at room temperature
2/3 cup soft butter (or shortening)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together. Add remaining ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes. Bake in greased 9X13 pan for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, and spread on frosting. (Recipe below.) Broil until frosting is brown and bubbly-- WATCH CAREFULLY! Eat cake hot. Yum!

Delectable Broiler Frosting

10 Tbl. brown sugar
6 Tbl. cream or milk
1 cup shredded coconut
