Cinnamon Roll Bunnies Recipe

I know this has all the earmarks (haha! get it? earmarks? bunny ears? eh hem, yeah… anyway…) of a Pinterest-Fail, but these are actually pretty cute, simple to make and great for Easter breakfast or brunch. Since you start with pre-made cinnamon rolls, there is less work and a pretty solid cinnamon roll base to work with.

Cinnamon Roll Bunnies Recipe Notes:

• The bunnies can be shaped the night before. Place them in the cookie sheet and cover tightly with foil or plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge, along with the icing. Next day, bake, glaze and serve. Obviously, if you are shaping the night before, do not preheat your oven until you are ready to bake.

• These are 1-4-1 with the cinnamon rolls. If you want 16, you need two 8-packs of cinnamon rolls, 24, you need three 8-packs of cinnamon rolls, etc.

Creamy Avocado Breakfast Toasties Recipe

Toasties are so darned easy to make. Usually topped with a second piece of bread, there is no reason you can’t eat your toasties open-faced!

Creamy Avocado Breakfast Toasties Notes:

• You could substitute bacon for the pancetta if you like. This is a wonderful write up on the difference between Bacon and Pancetta (hint: it is all in curing process)

• Aim for a rustic, whole wheat bread that is seedy and flavorful. You can, of course, use any type of bread you and your family prefer.

• In a pinch, you could substitute small curd cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese, although it will not be as sweet nor as creamy – although it will be lower in fat.

• This recipe serves one person. You can easily double, triple, quadruple, etc the recipe to make breakfast for your entire family.

• 2 slices Pancetta

Apple, Ham, and Cheese Instant Pot Breakfast Casserole Recipe

The instant pot crazy is real and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. It appears that everyone is on the lookout for a new and different instant pot recipe. This Apple, Ham, and Cheese Instant Pot Breakfast Casserole Recipe is a real winner on a cool fall or winter morning. If you have leftover ham (from Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, etc) or a ham steak that you heated up for dinner last night and now have leftover, give this unique recipe a try. It is filling. And, there is no reason you can’t use it as breakfast for dinner.

One of the things that always strikes me is the name “instant” pot. It really isn’t instant at all. It reminds me more of a multi-cooker than a slow-cooker. I will admit I do not use ours. Like most of the kitchen gadgets in our home, it is allllll Hubby. He likes it. To me, it seems a bit like work, but I can’t argue with the results.
