French Toast Bites / #FrenchToastDay

Did you know that today is National French Toast Day? It really is!! So, what better way to celebrate than with these French Toast bites! These bites are made with leftover dinner rolls I had in the freezer and I made them two ways. One with just the french toast, and a second way with sausage added.

French Toast Bites
(printable recipe at end of page)
6-7 small Wheat Buns
Butter
3 Eggs 
2/3 cup Milk
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
2 teaspoon Vanilla
Confectioners Sugar
Sugar Free Syrup 


Chop the buns into small, bite size pieces. 
In a bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
Place sausage patties in frying pan and cook, flipping several times. Cut into 4 pieces when done cooking.
Melt butter in large frying pan. Dunk the bread cubes in to the milk mix. Push bread down into milk to totally cover. Place bread into pan and cook until pieces become browned and egg sets up on some of the pieces. 
Skewer pieces of french toast, and set on plate. Drizzle with syrup and garnish with confectioner's sugar.
Add sausage quarters to some of the french toast bites for a tasty change!

    Yoplait Greek 100 Whips Cookie Cups and a Cash Giveaway!

    I just went in for my annual physical last week, and things are good! Of course, I need to watch what I eat and my doctor wouldn't be upset if I lost a few pounds. Overall, I was happy, but the losing some weight thing is something I really want to work on. As we are coming in to spring, I think now is the time to lose those 20 pounds and get ready for summer and lazy days at the beach! I started doing just that this week when I was asked to make some desserts for a church group that I am a part of. I wanted something light, yummy, fresh, and pretty! That's how these cookie cups filled with Yoplait Greek 100 Whips came about, and they were perfect for the luncheon! Yoplait Greek 100 Whips come in the two flavors I used, Strawberry and Black Cherry, plus several more and at only 100 calories each they only taste like a rich indulgence. Enter the giveaway at the end of this post for $15 in Paypal cash to try all the flavors of Yoplait Greek 100 Whips to find your favorite! Shop at Publix, for a great coupon value!

    Spring Brunch and a Giveaway!

    I love a nice, civilized  Brunch, don't you? It's so nice to have the extra time to sit with friends and family enjoying delicious food and wonderful conversation. A while ago I hosted a Sunday Spring Brunch at my house. It was such a great time, and the food was so enjoyable.
    Brunch Menu
    Bacon Topped Deviled Eggs
    Mini Mexi Bites
    Mini Blueberry Muffins
    Homemade Baked Doughnuts
    Peanut Butter Cookies
    Fresh Scrambled Eggs
    Toasted Wheat Thin Bread
    Fresh Fruit
    Orange Juice
    Fresh Milk
    Coffee
    One of my very favorite foods I served at brunch were these
    Mini Mexi Bites. They were so delicious and creamy, with a bit of a bite
    that everyone loved. They were easy to make, and the recipe 
    was courtesy of  Land O'Lakes! There are so many incredible recipes
    on their web site, so here is a teaser to give you a hint of the
    recipes Land O'Lakes has to offer!

    Mini Mexi Bites
    2 Land O'Lakes All Natural Eggs
    1/4 cup Milk
    2 tablespoons chopped, roasted Red Pepper
    2 tablespoons sliced Green Onions
    2 tablespoons chopped Fresh Cilantro
    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    6 ounces shredded, Hot Pepper Jack Cheese
    1 box refrigerated Pie Crusts, at room temperature

    Heat oven to 350 degrees. 
    Spray 24 mini muffin pan cups with no stick cooking spray.
    I started off by roasting my own red pepper. 
     I usually do this on the grill, but this works too. 
    It actually works quite well. I used my tongs to heat the
    pepper over the flame. I kept turning it until it was roasted
    all over.
    I put the pepper in a bowl 
    and covered the bowl with plastic wrap. The moisture
    created from the heat of the just roasted pepper covered 
    with plastic helps the skin lift up and it makes it easy to remove it.
    I peeled the skin off of the pepper....
    and it soon looked like this.
    Then I chopped it up into small pieces.
    Combine all your ingredients except for the 
    cheese and the pie crust.
    Add the cheese and set aside.
    Cut each pie crust into 12 rounds using a 2 1/2" 
    round cookie cutter. 
    Gently press 1 pie crust round into each muffin cup.
    Evenly pour egg mixture into crust lined muffin cups.
    Bake for 23-33 minutes or until golden brown.
    Serve and enjoy!
