Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You know this. You’ve known since you were in third grade and they played those animated commercials of kids eating peanut butter toast with a slice of cheese and a glass of milk. Remember those?
A healthy breakfast can give you and your kids a good boost of energy to get the day off to a good start.
At our house, breakfast is also one of the culinary highlights of the day, along with second breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Man, these kids can eat! I run the same basic schedule every week:
Sunday: cinnamon rolls
Monday: Apples and oatmeal
Tuesday: eggs with one or a combo of the following: bacon, ham, toast or hashbrowns (My most favorite egg dish recipe is here.)
Thursday: baked goods, such as muffins or scones, and smoothies
One of our favorite once-in-awhile breakfasts comes courtesy of my mother-in-law. Boy, is it good! Enjoy!
1 pound bacon
6 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
salt and pepper
In a large skillet with a lid, layer the bacon pieces, overlapping and crisscrossing the slices. Yes, all of them. Next lay down the potatoes, overlapping slightly. Salt and pepper each layer. Secure the lid and place over medium heat. Cook for about 40 minutes until potatoes are tender.
Did I mention that this is a recipe that would NOT be mentioned in a nutrition commercial?
