 What's for breakfast?  
I am driving down that "What's for Breakfast Highway"-wondering what to make for breakfast? Are you tired of that poptart? Here are some breakfast recipes I tried recently. The granola bars and cinnamon rolls are great to place in the freezer. Just pull the bars out and the cinnnamon rolls-Presto-breakfast!  Some of the breakfast recipes are less than 200 calories. I hope you have time to share your wonderful breakfast ideas here on Lela's Blog.

Scrambled Egg Muffins with Salsa
This recipe calls for sausage, but crispy bacon crumbled and fresh tomato salsa added more flavor to this egg muffin.

Make sure you beat the eggs well.

what is the red sauce on the Scrambled Egg Muffins? doesn't seem part of the recipe. Looks like salsa.
Dec. 26, 2011 5:58 pm
Never mind I see it was salsa. I missed that part.

Oh my! You've got my mouth watering! I love to cook anything for breakfast and can think of several dishes to have as a breakfast item but when it comes to dinners I get so that I cook the same thing all the time and want to have something different. Glad to be on AR so that I can come up with something different. I just love AR :)

I am right there shot gun side of your car.hahaha. As I type, I am eatting the last of the rib roast with eggs and WW English muffin. Pants are cutting off circulation. So good tho.:) / How about bean and cheese burritos made with WW tortillas. I hope you have a Wonderful New Year as well. Nice traveling with you:)

Those all look delicious! For a quick breakfast my family will top fried roast beef hash with an over-easy egg. Another quick idea is sausage biscuits, bake frozen biscuits and fry frozen sausage (delicious from Schwan's!!). I do cook, these are just quick and good...

luv2cook-It is indeed fun to be here on AR. So many people have inspired me--and when I can't think of anything for a meal this is where I go. Nice seeing you here.

Patty Cakes-Your English Muffin sounds delish. Talk about pants-I have on sweats today-need that extra room with the elastic waistband. LOL! Enjoyed hearing from you.

jsmonds-I never had fried roast beef hash. Fill me in on how it is made. Sounds yummy. Love your sausage biscuits idea so easy right up my alley--my husband would have to top them with gravy though.

They do say breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Everything looked great! My thing right now is mixing no fat plain Greek yogurt with fruit and then adding a crunchy topping. Still trying to work the kinks out of my granola topping. Your bars looked really good.
Dec. 27, 2011 1:27 pm
I love Greek yogurt-I add Ceylon cinnamon and any kind of fruit like you! If you come up with a special granola topping-I would love the recipe-because it seems there is something missing from my yogurt. I have taken the granola bars here and crumbled them in my yogurt though.

About Me
I enjoy cooking for our family sit down dinners. Although my kids are grown, we are a close family that enjoys 4-5 sit down dinners a week together. My family's favorite dinner is chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili. I have a passion for cooking, baking for the holidays and food photography.
My favorite things to cook
I am family oriented and spend time with my family enjoying meals. My favorite things to cook are Mexican food and any food my family asks me to cook. My family looks forward to home cooked Mexican food at least once a week and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am on a journey to reclaim family recipes that were lost when the cooks in my family passed away. Cooking traditions are a major part of my passion for cooking. On Christmas Eve, we always had green chili and tamales. Cookie baking, lemon bars, pizzelles , and potica have been a must at Christmas as long as I can remember. My family looks forward to homemade pizza, when we gather as a family to decorate the Christmas cookies. Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without noodles and gravy piled high on mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and broccoli and rice casserole. On the 4th of July, there is the 4th of July Potato Salad that I make using 10 pounds of potatoes. Mexican Food is part of our weekly menu--green chili served over mashed potatoes or as a slopper (green chili poured over hamburgers.) I am always making tortillas for someone. They call my tortillas little white pieces of gold. Saturdays are Family night for dinner. It is the one day my kids can request a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Seeking help on the Buzz and the AR Blog has resulted in a few triumphs. I am extremely ecstatic about overcoming the yeast monster. I can now bake baguettes, focaccia and the best rolls in the world, my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempts at baking bread/rolls resulted in rock hard flat rolls. However, I am improving. Baking at High Altitude is somewhat of a challenge.
