Breakfast Shenanigans!

Admit it...

Breakfast food is the Superman of our daily meals and it must be your favorite, just as it is mine. Almost anything can be included in your breakfast and no one would judge you...unless you were say, throwing away the left-overs!  How many evenings have you solved your Dinner-fixing rut with "Breakfast for Dinner y'all!"...seriously, no matter how anyone (like my husband) may deny their love of breakfast food, deep down they are just Lying to Themselves because we all know, Breakfast is magnificent!  Need a little nudging proof?  Fine, but first, you need to get a glass stomach so you can see where you're going with your head up your ass!  

My buddy Shanna won the chance to decide the theme for this blog-diggity and I couldn't agree more with her are some alternative breakfast options...Welcome to Breakfast Shenanigans y'all!

Chile Relleno Quiche

1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 cup Monterey Jack, grated
5 eggs
1 2/3 cups Half 'n' Half
1/4 cup Salsa
1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour
4 oz. can Green Chiles, drained

~ Preheat oven to 375
~ Mix grated cheeses and spread evenly over greased deep "10 baking dish.
~ In a separate medium bowl, beat eggs, adding flour slowly. Mix in Half'n'Half until well blended.
~ Pour eggs mixture over cheeses, spoon chiles and salsa over the top.

My Quality Control Crew says "YUM!"
and "More Mama?"

Berry Buttermilk Pancakes

1 cup Buttermilk
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
2 tbsp oil (I use Canola)

~ Preheat a greased skillet to medium heat while you mix your batter so its good and hot when you're ready
~ Sift dry ingredients together in a medium bowl
~Add beaten egg, buttermilk, and oil and beat until Just Mixed. Do NOT Overbeat
~ Drop batter by 1/4 cup for each pancake onto hot skillet/griddle
~ Cook until top is full of tiny bubbles and the underside is golden brown. 
~ Recipe can easily be doubled for the truly ambitious hungry bellies!

For the Berry Syrup:
1 cup blueberries or blackberries
1 cup Maple or preferred syrup
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp vanilla

~ Over medium-low heat, stir all ingredients in a small saucepan until aroma is strong, about 5 minutes
~ Pour this purple velvet all over your cakes, and if you have some left over, you're more than welcome to use as a delicious and inexpensive (yet oh-so-sticky) flavored lube ;)

Cheesy Potato Patties

1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup left-over mashed potatoes
1 egg
1/2 cup flour
1 small chopped onion (or green onion)
1-2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Optional: ground beef or turkey, bacon

~ Heat oil in griddle on medium-high heat.
~ Mix all ingredients well, drop by spoonfuls onto griddle, pressing to 1" thick patties.
~ Turn once, cooking patties for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned.
~ Serve hot, but for Jeebus-sakes, don't burn your tongue scarfing the goodness ;)
