Kielbasa and Cheddar Mini Omelette Cups / #FarmersMarketWeek

This week I am participating in Farmers Market Week with some blogging friends. These events are always fun for me. I love that everyone has the same theme, and it is always so interesting to see the different interpretations of that theme! The only rule with Farmers Market theme is that you need to use an ingredient that is something you might find at a Farmers Market! That's a lot of ingredients to choose from!
I made these Kielbasa and Cheddar Mini Omelette Cups because they are easy, can be made ahead of time, to a certain point, and I bought the eggs, cheddar, and onion at the Farmers Market! Another thing, or two, that I love about these Omelette Cups is that they taste great hot or cold, and they are perfect for a school day breakfast, or an after school snack! 


Kielbasa and Cheddar Mini Omelette Cups 
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 24 Mini Omelette Cups)

6 Eggs
7 ounces pre cooked Polska Kielbasa
1-2 ounces Diced Sweet Onion
1/4 -1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar
Black Pepper, as desired
1-4 -1/2 cup Shredded 4 Cheese


Place eggs in a bowl. Fill bowl with warm, but not hot, water. Use just enough water to cover eggs. Let sit for 5 minutes. Then drain water. You can skip this step by taking your eggs out of the refrigerator an hour or two before you want to use them. They need to be at room temperature.
Cut the Kielbasa into very small pieces, like in the picture. Also, if you are using onion in this recipe, dice it into small pieces.You might notice that I used no spices or seasonings in this recipe other than pepper. The kielbasa is so full of spices and great flavor, that I thought no other was needed.
Crack the eggs into a bowl. Add the cheddar cheese. Mix with a hand mixer. You could use a blender instead, if you want to. 
Add Kielbasa pieces into egg mix. Sprinkle with black pepper.
Spray a mini muffin pan with pan spray. Add the egg mix to each opening. If you are adding onion, add a few pieces to each cup. I only added onion to about half of mine, because I have a non onion lover! If you are making this ahead of time, this is where you stop. Refrigerate the pan until you are ready to top it with cheese and pop it in the oven. (Then follow from here)
Add the 4 cheese mix onto the top of each omelette cup. I don't think you can add too much cheese!
Bake in the oven for 11-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove and cool for 2 minutes. Take a toothpick around the edge of each cup.
Place on cooling rack, or serve hot from the oven. They are ready to be enjoyed!
Enjoy! These mini omelette cups can be refrigerated for later use, which makes them so handy, or served imediately!

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!

    Casseroles are a great dish for your busy holiday mornings because of their make ahead convenience, and their ability to feed many people at one time. This Holiday Breakfast Casserole does those things and it uses packaged breakfast rolls for even greater ease in preparation.

    Creamsicle Doughnuts / #TasteCreations

    This month we are all about Doughnuts at #TasteCreations, so I made some Creamsicle Doughnuts I would love to share with you! Would you do just about anything for a doughnut? I think a lot of people would! I lived in Las Vegas when the first Krispy Kreme opened in the city. Everyone was excited! The television news talked about it, it was in all the papers, and the lines were out the door everyday for at least a week. It seemed everyone had a story about waiting in line for the delectable doughnut! It was craziness, and everyone was talking doughnuts! Fun and a little nutty at the same time!
    Well, these doughnuts are very tasty and easy to make, but I'm not sure they will get that much press! But, then again, you won't have to wait in line to get them! Even though they are worth it!
    Creamsicle Doughnuts

    (makes 15-17 doughnuts)
    (printable recipe at end of blog)
     2 cups Cake Flour
    3/4 cup Sugar
    2 teaspoon Baking Powder
    3/4 cup Buttermilk
    2 Eggs, lightly beaten
    2 tablespoon Butter, melted
    1 teaspoon Orange Extract
    2 teaspoon Orange Zest
    1/8 cup fresh squeezed Orange Juice from zested Orange
    Orange Sprinkles

    Glaze 
    2 cups Powdered Sugar 
    4-5 tablespoon Light Whipping Cream

    Preheat oven to 350° F

    Place the cake flour, sugar and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Mix together. Add the extract, zest and juice. Mix together.
    Grease a doughnut pan.Fill each doughnut cavity with batter, about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 1/2 -7 minutes. Remove from oven. Take a toothpick around the edges of the pan to loosen the doughnut a little. Let cool for 2 minutes, then remove from pan and cool.
    Place all doughnut on a baking sheet, or something similar. This is where they will be iced.
    Make the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar and cream. Add the cream a tablespoon at a time until the glaze is thick but pourable.
    Pour the glaze into a small bowl. Drop each doughnut onto the glaze, then lift off, let drip a little, and set back on tray.
    Decorate doughnuts with orange sprinkles or jimmies, and enjoy!
