Christmas Spinach and Egg Breakfast

Friday, December 14, 2018

It's the most beautiful time of the year. I love making things festive looking and especially the foods we eat. This Christmas spinach and egg breakfast - brunch just shouts with holiday colors and cheer! We love the flavors and you can totally adapt by adding anything else you love with this basic holiday breakfast.

Every year we make something special and usually coordinates the colors to match the Holiday. This year being everyone loves poached eggs, I added the spinach and tomato for color. The cheese just adds an additional awesome flavor to this dish that everyone just goes crazy for.

I really love the buttery taste of the poached eggs on Italian toast with the spinach and tomato. All the flavors go perfect together and easy to makeChristmastas morning is usually so busy with the kids, no one remembers to eat. This usually ends up a brunch. We really celebrate all day long, this is the perfect beginning to start the day.

Christmas White Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies

Friday, December 7, 2018
Here is a favorite Holiday candy-cookie, we make every year. White chocolate with peanut butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies. Creamy, smooth decadent and a divine confection. Plus the bonus making this, they're a no-bake treat.

Back in the 1970s, we loved a candy called boyer smoothie cups, maybe some of my readers remember them. I was a huge fan of those.

Well, these reminded me of those little candy cups ( just minus the marshmallows) when I first made them back in 2009 they brought me back to that taste of my childhood favorite candy bar.

This year, I decided these clusters needed to be dressed up for the Christmas holiday. These are the perfect addition to our candy or cookie trays.

Mom's Frittata

Wednesday, December 5, 2018
Mom's Egg Frittata is one of the best Italian comfort foods. This is a traditional authentic old world Italian breakfast. The pepperoni and eggs with potatoes are so delicious anytime and even in a sandwich with toasted Italian bread.

There are so many variations to the recipe, you can make it any way you like. Here is my mom's version.

Breakfast, brunch or just a quick mid-afternoon dinner, this frittata a great way to throw together a fast meal.

It is so easy and all in one pan using potatoes, eggs, and meat. The whole family always enjoyed this.

The one memory that really stands out for me is holiday time, this was mom's go-to recipe.

Mom made this breakfast often during the holidays when she was so busy getting the huge Italian meals prepared for Christmas Day. She always prepared hers on the stovetop. I do mine either baked or in a frying pan on the stove top. You will find both versions in my recipe card below. Let me know which version you prefer.

We would get up to the smell of sizzling pepperoni on Christmas morning in the pan with cubed potatoes cooking.

Making this around the holidays keeps mom's memory alive and it still puts a smile on my face thinking about those heartwarming days.

Now I continue to make this delicious holiday breakfast for my kids and grandchildren.

This is a baked frittata with melted cheeses on top. This frittata is mom's recipe and baked in the oven as an alternative to pan fried on the stove top. It has potatoes, pepperoni and eggs in it.
