Quick Breakfast Treats

I love breakfast. If possible, I’d have breakfast three times a day. Here are a few of my little creations – very quick to make and very delicious!

Bagel with cream cheese, topped with strawberries:strawberry cream cheese bagelBagel with cream cheese, topped with blueberries:blueberry cream cheese bagelRicotta cheese with strawberries:ricotta with strawberriesStrawberries:  slice up the strawberries, tuck about 1/2 cup in a plastic quart bag; add a teaspoon of sugar. After all of the strawberries are sliced and sugared in their plastic quart bags, place all of the bags into a one gallon freezer bag and place into freezer. When you want to eat strawberries the next morning, simply take out a quart bag and put it into the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, they’ll be juicy and sweet and ready to eat.

Blueberries:  tuck about 1/2 cup of blueberries into plastic quart bags; take all of the quart bags and place them into a gallon size plastic bag. Tuck the bag into the freezer. Thaw the same as the strawberries. Something I like to do is eat the blueberries frozen. There’s something about the way they crackle and split open when you eat them frozen on top of a bagel. Yum!

Blueberry Pancakes

I love blueberry pancakes!  This morning I made up a batch of pancakes; my teen didn’t want any, so there’s a bit of batter in the fridge for later 🙂

I used the recipe on the box of Bisquick, except that I cut the recipe since in half because I was the only one eating pancakes.

Ingredients

1 cup of Bisquick

1 egg, beaten

1 cup of milk

1/2 cup blueberries (mine were frozen and I didn’t thaw them first)

Directions

Mix together the Bisquick, egg and milk.  I mix it up good, but leave a few little lumps.  Add the blueberries and mix a bit more.

On preheated, greased skillet, pour out 1/4 cup of batter – this is what I used to make three pancakes. When the tops of the pancakes are all bubbly and turn them over.  Let them cook until the other side is browned.

Enjoy with butter and syrup.
