We still have two more weeks of National Nutrition Month – and I thought I would share a couple of recipes that are perfect for an Easter Brunch.
Here is a recipe I found for a Strawberry Omelet – it’s festive, delicious and really easy to prepare. I found this online a while back and saved it. It is from a book called Tampa Treasures by the Junior League of Tampa.
I also love the combined flavors of the sour cream, lemon zest and vanilla – it has a genuine Hungarian flavor – which is my favorite – seeing as my Dad and Grandparents all came from Hungary and those are the flavors I grew up with – so this recipe really caught my eye. The recipe originally was for just 1 omelet so I increased ingredients – this will serve four people.
Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: Approximately10 Minutes
- 8 eggs
- 1 tablespoon plus two teaspoons powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon butter
- 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, slicing 1 cup and cutting remaining berries in half
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon or orange peel
- Powdered sugar for garnish
- In bowl, using electric mixer, beat eggs until very light and fluffy. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
- In omelet pan or 10”skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Pour egg mixture in pan; cover. Cook about 4 minutes (top will be a little soft).
- Combine sour cream, powdered sugar and grated peel. Spread sour cream filling on omelet; remove to plate and fill with 1 cup sliced strawberries, fold in half. Garnish with remaining strawberries; dust with a little powdered sugar.
You can cut this into slices that are approximately an inch or an inch and a half wide – remember – this dish is great for a buffet table so everybody just takes a little.
Now, how about a twist on Breakfast Muffins? Try making your own sausage and bake in a muffin pan.
Here is an idea I got from a Weight Watcher’s magazine that I saved for years! I have adapted it just a bit.
Preparation time – less than 10 minutes
Cooking Time – 25 minutes – let stand for 5 minutes before serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- 1-1/2 pounds ground chicken or turkey
- 3/4 cup onions, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced (I used garlic that is already minced – it comes in a small jar in the produce department)
- 1 teaspoon Oregano
- 1 teaspoons dried sage
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
- Salt & pepper to taste – I do not use a lot of salt in my cooking – I do use Lemon Pepper – and I used 1 teaspoon of Lemon pepper for this recipe
Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl.
Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray or use cupcake liners
Spoon meat mixture evenly into muffin pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Remove from muffin pan to serving platter.
