4 large mushrooms, sliced
4 green onions, chopped
1 T & 1/2 c butter, divided
1⁄2 c flour
1 t baking powder
1⁄2 t salt
10 eggs, lightly beaten
4 c shredded monterey jack cheese
1 c crumbled pork sausage, fully cooked and drained well
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
In a skillet, saute the mushrooms and onions in 1 T butter until tender. Set aside. In same skillet brown and crumble the sausage. Drain well on paper towels. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl combine eggs and cheeses. Melt remaining butter; add to egg mix. Stir into dry ingredients along with, sausage crumbles and mushroom mix. Fill greased muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 F for 35 – 40 min or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Carefully run a knife around the edge of each muffin cup before removing. Yield: 30 puffs. Note to Me: Can also bake in a baking dish in the oven.
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1 t dried parsley
3⁄4 t seasoning salt
1⁄4 t pepper
2⁄3 c sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 T butter
5 eggs, beaten
1 7 1/3 oz can refrigerated jumbo flakey biscuits
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 egg white, slightly beaten
1 – 2 t sesame seeds (opt)
Preheat oven to 375 F. Stir together the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl until blended; stir in cheese. Melt butter in a 9″ skillet over medium heat; add eggs and cook without stirring until eggs begin to set on bottom. Draw spatula across bottom of skillet to form large curds. Continue cooking until eggs are slightly thickened but still moist. (Do NOT stir constantly). Remove from heat and let cool. Flatten each bisquit into about a 5″ circle. Spread cream cheese mix evenly over the tops of dough circles, leaving a 1/2″ border around the edges. Top evenly with eggs and bacon. Fold dough circles in half over mix pinching edges to seal. Place 2″ apart in a 15 x 10 jelly roll pan coated with pam. Brush top of doughs evenly with egg white. Press sealed edges with the tines of a fork. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 14 – 16 min until golden brown. Remove empanadas with a spatula onto a wire rack. Serve warm. Note: Leftovers can be stored in a ziplock bag after being completely cooled. To reheat, wrap in paper towel and microwave at 50% power for 1 – 2 min. These freeze well. Yield: 8 empanadas.
1 c steel cut oats
3 c water
Pour steel cut oats in the steel pot. Add water. Secure the lid, press manual, and set time to 3 min. Allow the Instant Pot to come to pressure, approx 5 min. When finished, natural release pressure, approx 5 – 10 min (let it come down on its own – do not quick release). Add toppings if desired.
2 c flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
2 T sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c milk
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until completely blended. Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until only very small lumps remain in the batter. Thoroughly grease the interior of your instant pot with cooking oil spray (I used a canola oil spray). Pour in batter. Seal lid with vent closed and program instant pot to manual mode. Set pressure to low pressure. Then set to cook for about 45 min. 45 min will produce a crispy brown top. If you want something a little less crispy, you may want to try a few less min. (Update: Some people have reported an issue with their Instant Pot giving an overheating error. It appears to be happening with certain models of the Instant Pot such as the 6-in-1 bluetooth version. If this happens, you can also try to set it to rice mode instead of manual, low pressure, 45 mi, which seems to solve the issue.) Check on the cake when the Instant Pot indicates it’s done cooking. Your instant pot should not have sealed because of the low pressure and lack of liquid. The cake will look quite pale when finished because this is the bottom of your cake. When you touch the cake, it should bounce back with no uncooked batter remaining on it and the cake should be pulling away from the sides. If you cake is not quite done, let it continue to cook on low pressure for a few more min. Use a spatula to further loosen cake from the sides of the pan. Sometimes the cake gets a little bit stuck to the bottom, so you just need to carefully peel it away with your spatula. Very carefully, pop the cake out upside down so that the bottom is now the top. The top of the cake should be a golden brown and crispy. Serve with your favorite pancake toppings.
1/4 t lemon pepper seasoning
4 T shredded cheddar/Jack cheese
1 green onion, diced
4 slices precooked bacon, crumbled
Put the steamer basket in the pressure cooker pot and add 1 1/2 c water. Break eggs into a large measuring bowl with pour spout, add lemon pepper and beat well. Divide the cheese, bacon and green onion evenly between the four silicone muffin cups. Pour the beaten eggs into each muffin cup and stir with a fork to combine. Place muffin cups on steamer basket. Cover and lock lid in place. Select High Pressure and 8 min cook time. When timer beeps, turn off, wait 2 min then use a quick pressure release. Carefully open the lid, lift out the steamer basket and remove muffin cups. Serve immediately or muffins will keep more than a week in the refrigerator. Microwave on high about 30 seconds to reheat. Note: Can be used for Egg McMuffin sandwiches.
1 c steel cut oats
3 c almond milk (water or any milk you prefer works as well)
Add oats into the Instant Pot followed by milk. Secure the lid and close the vent. Press the MANUAL button and set to 3 min. After the oats finish cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally (about 10 – 15 min). After the pressure releases, open the lid and give the oatmeal a good stir. Any extra liquid will absorb as it cools. Add cinnamon or other additions you like. Top oatmeal with fresh fruit, nut butter, a splash of milk or any other toppings you like.
sweetener (honey, maple syrup)
pinch of salt
splash of milk
1 c milk
1 c flour
dash of salt
1 t vanilla
4 T butter
Preheat oven to 425 F. As oven preheats, place the butter in 9 x 13” baking dish and put in oven for the butter to melt. Place the eggs, milk, flour, salt and vanilla in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Pour batter into the baking dish with the melted butter. Bake for 20 min or until golden brown and puffy. Remove from oven and sprinkle generously with syrup and powdered sugar or fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar.
1 c warm water
1 T yeast
1 T sugar
1 T oil
1 t salt
2 1/2 – 3 c flour
2 T melted butter
2 c shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
12 – 15 cooked sliced of thin bacon, chopped
6 cooked breakfast sausages, chopped
4 large eggs, scrambled
Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a mixing bowl and let sit for about 3 – 4 min until yeast is bubbling up. Add in oil, salt and flour. Start with 2 1/2 c flour, then add more until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. Continue mixing for an additional 3 – 4 min, then cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 15 min. In cold weather, you can turn your oven on for about 3 – 4 min, then turn it off and let dough rest in the oven. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray counter top with non-stick cooking spray and roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Brush dough with melted butter, then spread with scrambled eggs. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top (reserving about 1/2 c for later), then spread bacon and sausage. Starting with one of the long sides of the rectangle, roll dough up tightly, working from one end to the other end horizontally, then back again. Pinch the seams closed at the end. Use a sharp, thin knife to cut 1 1/2″ sections of dough from the large roll. This will result in about 15 rolls. Set rolls on a large greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 14 min. Remove from oven and top rolls with remaining 1/2 c cheese. Return to oven for an additional 1 – 2 min, until cheese is melted and rolls are just beginning to turn golden brown. Brush with melted butter again, if desired. Serve warm. Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container. Makes 13 – 15 rolls.
7 3/4 c flour (scoop and level)
1 3/4 c dry non-fat milk powder
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c baking powder
1 1/2 Tbsp salt
In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, dry milk, sugar, baking powder and salt for about 1 1/2 min to evenly distribute everything. Pour into an airtight container and store up to 8 months (or earlier if ingredients expire before then).
Ingredients to Prepare Pancakes
1 – 1 1/3 c water
3 T butter (can sub vegetable oil)
1 large egg
Preheat an electric griddle to 400 F. In a large mixing bowl whisk together water, oil and egg until well blended (if using butter, first melt butter in the large microwave safe mixing bowl then add water and egg and blend). Add in 2 c pancake mix and whisk until combined (batter should still be slightly lumpy, don’t over-mix). Pour batter 1/3 c at a time onto griddle (butter griddle first if necessary), if batter is thick spread outward slightly. Cook until bottom is golden brown then flip and cook opposite side until golden brown. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup. Note: These are also delicious with fresh blueberries. Simply dot the tops of the pancakes with blueberries after you ladle them onto the griddle. Yield: Dry mix yields 5 batches of 8 – 9 pancakes.
1 lb ground pork sausage
4 T flour
4 c milk
salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet, brown sausage. Drain the cooked sausage. Remove a 1/2 c cooked sausage to a mixing bowl. Add flour to the skillet and brown a little in the sausage fat. Slowly add milk, stirring continuously while it thickens. Salt and pepper the gravy, to taste. Keep on low heat so that it stays warm while making the egg rolls.
3 c shredded hash browns, regular or southwestern seasoned
3 – 4 eggs
2 T water
1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
egg roll wrappers
cooking spray, or canola oil
Mix eggs and water and then scramble the eggs in a small skillet until just set. Don’t worry, they will finish cooking when baked. Add the scrambled eggs to the reserved sausage. Add potatoes and cheese to bowl with the cooked sausage and eggs. Stir in a 1/2 cup of the reserved sausage gravy. Season with salt and pepper and stir well one last time to blend everything together. Take an egg roll wrapper and put about 1/3 c potato sausage mix just below the center. Fold over one half to make a triangle. You should have about a 1/2″ of the bottom part of the wrapper still exposed. With you finger brush a little water along that edge to help seal the egg rolls. Then fold in 2 sides forming the egg roll shape. Then roll up the rest of the way into a sealed egg roll. Spray the outside of the egg rolls with cooking spray, or lightly brush them with canola oil. Bake at 425 F for 12 – 15 min or until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Serve with a bowl of sausage gravy for dipping. Note: These can also be cooked by frying them in canola oil.
2/3 c warm water
1 t active dry yeast
1/4 t sugar
1 T olive oil
1 1/4 c flour
1 t kosher salt
2 1/2 c shredded Muenster cheese
1 1/4 c crumbled feta cheese
2 eggs (opt) OR 2 egg yolks
4 T unsalted butter, cubed
In a large bowl, add water, sugar and yeast. Let bloom until foamy and fragrant, about 10 min. Add flour, olive oil and salt to bowl and stir with wooden spoon until a soft, springy dough forms. Transfer dough to well greased bowl and let rise in a warm area for 1 hour. Preheat pizza stone in oven at 500 F (don’t add stone to a hot oven, let it come to temp in the oven so it doesn’t explode.) Generously flour a counter surface. Punch down dough and divide into 2 round balls. Roll out 1 ball onto floured surface into a large disc, about 1/4″ thick. Add 1/4 cheese mix to the center of the dough. Roll the sides to form a boat shape around the dough. Add another 1/4 cheese to the middle and place into oven. Bake 30 min or until cheese is bubbly and crust is a golden brown. Top with fresh egg and pats of butter when removing from oven. Repeat with second disc for second Khachapuri. Serve and enjoy!

1 1 lb pkg bacon, cut into 1/2″ strips, divided
1 yellow onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
12 large eggs
1 c milk
3 c frozen diced potatoes (you don’t have to thaw or cook the potatoes)
2 c shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
2 green onions, chopped
Heat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 x 13″ baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until it is a nice crispy brown. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate. Roughly chop the bacon and set aside. Add the onion and red pepper to the skillet and cook over medium heat until tender. Add the garlic and cook for 2 min. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs and whisk in milk. Stir in cooked vegetables, potatoes and 1 c shredded cheese. Set 3/4 c bacon aside and stir in the rest. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mix into prepared baking dish and top with remaining cheese and green onions. Bake for 20 min so the eggs start to set up. Carefully add the remaining bacon to the top of the casserole. Bake for an additional 20 min or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden brown. Let stand for 10 min. Cut into squares and serve warm. Note: Casserole can be made in advance. Pour the mix in the pan and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bake when ready to eat. You can also reheat the casserole.
8 eggs (or use 4 eggs and 6 egg whites)
1 c milk
1/2 t seasoned salt
8 oz diced cooked ham
1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c finely chopped onion
1/2 c finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 c finely chopped red bell pepper
fresh chives, for garnish (opt)
Beat eggs, milk, and seasoned salt together in a large bowl. Stir in ham, cheese, onion, and bell peppers. Pour egg mix into a greased 8″ square baking dish. Bake at 350 F for 45 – 60 min or until eggs are cooked and omelet is set. Cut into squares and garnish with chives, if desired.
2 soft large wraps / tortillas, approx 9″ diameter
110 – 150 g / 3 1/2 – 5 oz ham slices
1/2 – 1/3 c grated cheddar, gruyere, swiss or your favourite melting cheese
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place 2 pieces of foil on a work surface and spray with oil. Place tortilla on foil. Place ham in the middle of the tortilla, making sure you arrange it so it is flat, not a mound (harder to keep egg in place). Even better, create a shallow crater shape using ham cuts and shavings. Place cheese in the middle of the ham, form into a ring. Working quickly (1 pocket at a time), crack an egg into the ring then fold the bottom and top edges in, then the left and right side to form a pkg. Wrap in foil. DO NOT TURN UPSIDE DOWN!!! Egg will leak. Place on baking tray. Bake for 25 min. Check to ensure yolk is cooked by poking the pocket, you will feel the dome shape of the yolk. The base and edges should be crispy and the top will be soft. Unwrap immediately, otherwise wrap will sweat and lose crispiness. Serve hot! Note: This is not suitable for freezing because cooked egg whites go a bit rubbery. If you want to make these to freeze, use a fork to whisk the egg before pouring it into the cheese ring. Cook for 20 min, then unwrap and allow to cool. Then wrap in cling wrap (or foil if you want to reheat in oven), place in airtight containers and freeze. To reheat, thaw then either reheat in 350 F in oven for 10 min or in the microwave (1 min on high should be enough.) Serves 2.
