Saturday Breakfasts

Since Karlie moved into our house, we have been having breakfast with some close friends that live nearby every couple of Saturdays. It has been a lot of fun, and I have been able to do a little bit of experimental breakfast cooking.

You see, I'm not much of a breakfast person. Not that I'm anti-breakfast, it's just that, well, I value sleep a little more than waking up for that first meal. I know, I know, it's the most important meal of the day, and if you eat breakfast you are more apt to lose weight. Well, as you can read about here, it doesn't work for me, and I end up starving by 10:30 if I eat breakfast.

So, the only times I ever cook breakfast food are either when we eat breakfast for dinner (MAYBE once a year), or when I make something for Sunday School the night before. But now that we have been having Saturday breakfasts around 10:30, and there are more people than just me, it has been fun to experiment and look through all my cookbooks for yummy breakfast ideas.

I made something new this weekend from a cookbook called "Breakfast on the Battery" that my sweet mother-in-law got me from her last trip to New England. It's called Sausage Wellington. You can pretty much bet your life that anything with "Wellington" in the title is going to be a grand slam, so when I saw the recipe, there was no hesitation. I should have taken pics of the preparation, but all I have for you is the finished product.

Basically, it's sausage and cream cheese mixed with some diced mushrooms and onion, some sage, all put in a puff pastry and covered with hollandaise sauce. It. was. divinity. Definitely a repeater. So, I will try to get more with it for the next breakfasts and try to take pics and document the good ones.

If you have any "off the hook" breakfast recipes, send them my way!



  1. Hmmm, I always love a "decide your own pancake," event, with bowls of fresh berries and bananas sliced up, apples, cinnamon, jams, peanut butter, nutella, pumpkin pie spice, etc. Makes for a very yummy meal!

  2. That looks and sounds delicious! Justin loves breakfast burritos so that's a regular for us. We also get the roll out croissant things and I'll put a dallup of Nutella in them, roll them up and then bake them normally and they are so yummy. =)

  3. That looks so yummy. I don't have any breakfast ideas! I do love some eggs Benedict, but I don't know how to make it!

  4. That WAS delicious!!! :) Hehe but I'm remember when I thought the yellow stuff was queso... LOL.
