Breakfast Mushroom Melt

I don't know why I haven't done this one. This was a delicious sandwich. If I could give you a free sample I would.

2 pieces wheat bread, toasted
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 egg, fried
1/4 cup spinach
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tsp mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp butter

Saute your mushrooms until soft. Medium heat for about 5 to 7 minutes. Take mozzarella and place on on side of toast. place Sauteed mushrooms, spinach, then put top other piece of bread on top.

Take entire sandwich and put back into pan with 1\2 tbsp butter allow it to cook until mozzarella begins to melt. Remove from pan, take off top piece of toast and place fried egg on top. Place the toast back on top and cut in half. Eat. Enjoy.

Breakfast Quesadillas


 Breakfast Quesadillas

I always try to find new ways to use ingredients we  have on hand.  This tasty breakfast came to my mind when I thought about our waffle maker. Breakfast Quesadillas! This turned out to be a delicious breakfast; one that I would do again and again.

2  small flour tortillas
2 eggs
1/4 cup of onion
1/3 cup of sharp cheddar cheese
2 strips of bacon, cooked crispy
Cilantro, for garnish

Saute your onions until they begin to caramelize. Remove from heat and set aside

Whisk your eggs and fry them in a pan like an omelet. Keep it flat like a pancake. It will fit well in your tortillas.

Place one tortilla on a Belgium round waffle maker and place fried eggs, onions, cheese, and bacon. Place other tortilla on top. Close your waffle maker and cook until cheese is thoroughly melted, which is about 5 to 7 minutes.

Remove and cut in quarters. Garnish with cilantro and serve with salsa and plain Greek yogurt ( or sour cream) and enjoy!

Pul Biber / Aleppo Pepper 100g

Chicken and Chocolate Waffles

This next recipe is an unorthodox one, but it was actually quite good. The main highlight is the waffles. The chicken are frozen pre-breaded cuts cooked in the oven, tossed in honey and hot sauce. Here is how I did the waffles:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 stick unsalted butter
2 ounces baker's chocolate
1 tsp coco powder
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt

Mix flour, salt and baking powder together. Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler on about medium to medium-high heat. When the chocolate and butter has melted completely, remove from heat. Add sugar and vanilla and mix well. Add eggs and mix well. ( Make sure mixture is not too hot when adding eggs!) Add dry ingredients and milk. I would alternate mixing the dry and wet ingredients in so it incorporates better.

Take mixture and cook on your favorite waffle iron until done. They may take a little longer due to the chocolate.

This was a different combination that actually worked! If you have a taste for the wild side in culinary terms, try this one! Printable recipe here.

Alice Spring's Chicken- Our Take

Side note: This is the first ‘real’ dish my wife learned how to cook. In fact, when we were dating she made this recipe for me. It was good then, and it is excellent now. She was so kind to share this variation of the recipe with me, because frankly, it was delicious. 

3 chicken breasts
3 slices bacon
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped (note: restaurant doesn’t put green pepper on it…so if you are wanting it to be similar to that, just omit the green pepper)
9 mushrooms, chopped
3 slices mozzarella cheese
3 slices cheddar cheese (OR 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese)
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
Salt, pepper to taste

Using a basting brush, brush Dijon mustard on both sides of the chicken. Let sit for at least 10 minutes (in fridge) or longer for more flavor. Cook bacon. 

Put olive oil in pan and add onions and green peppers. Saute until soft then add mushrooms.
Salt and Pepper chicken and cook on grill pan until done. Top with vegetables, then bacon, then both cheeses. Put in oven under broiler until cheese is melted.

That's it! I hope you try and enjoy this recipe!
