In recent months, I have started to think about recipes that are part of the balanced breakfast category of books. What an amazing collection of recipes it is. A number of the recipes feature three main ingredients, something I have not found in other “Baker” books, such as the Lazy Oaf cookbook. Here are some perfect recipes for a balanced breakfast.
The Miracle Bakers in Costa Mesa, California, although not from Costa Mesa, California use these three ingredients. Yogurt, sour cream, and fruit. It is nice to discover that these three main ingredients are being used in both recipes in the Balanced Breakfast category of books.
In the book, “The Lemon Squeeze,” the main ingredient is frozen yogurt with fruit included. They add honey on top of the frozen yogurt to make a delicious frozen yogurt, but the picture is not very clear. I could not make out exactly what they use to give this dish the right flavor. The author says they also add some sort of thickener to the frozen yogurt to add thickness. However, I did not find any ingredient listing for what the thickener is in this recipe.
In the next recipe, “Three Crowns” by Helen Austin. They also use yogurt and sour cream to make the trio of balanced breakfast meals. It also uses margarine, and butter to create a crispy topping on the tops of the muffins.
In “Six Easy Steps to Great Breakfast Baking,” by Michelle Harrison, the first of the two main ingredients is olive oil, and the second is Dijon mustard. The third ingredient is maple syrup, and the fourth ingredient is chopped almonds.
Recipes For a Balanced Breakfast
Finally, the book, “Breakfast Bliss,” by Mary Ellen Stromer, contains recipes for pancakes, scrambles, muffins, and cinnamon rolls. For each of these breakfast dishes, they combine butter, eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, eggs, sour cream, raisins, honey, orange juice, ice cream, and strawberries. In addition, she recommends a helpful “baker’s helper” at the back of the book that tells you how much to use for your cinnamon rolls or your chocolate muffins.
In fact, of all the books I’ve read about breakfast, I believe that this collection of recipes has the best short ingredient lists. All of the recipes are perfect. The main ingredient is always the same and the product is always beautifully made.
My personal favorite recipes in this collection are the Crispy Roasted Eggs with Maple Glaze and the Crunchy Cornmeal and Eggs. Both of these recipes are great for breakfast on the go. It is so nice to be able to eat a quick and healthy meal when you need it.
Wonderful Things about Balanced Breakfast
The wonderful thing about balanced breakfast recipes is that they come in all different sizes. Some of the smaller books are one page long, while others are only a few pages long. You can easily get an entire meal or simply snacks and desserts for the whole family or the workday at home when you pick up one of these smaller sized books.
If you find yourself pressed for time in the morning, you may choose to skip breakfast and snack instead. But with the beautiful, eye-catching, and delicious, balanced breakfast meals in this collection, I can see why most people are eating breakfast. Why waste the morning?
If you do decide to skip breakfast, you will find this collection of balanced breakfast recipes a real treasure. You can also find some variations of these recipes by creating a variety of meals using other ingredients. You can throw together egg salad and bacon and cheese casserole or even crumble an orange in the oven and use that to add some bright flavor to scrambled eggs.
Having your own special meal from these recipes makes breakfast the perfect healthy breakfast for all occasions. You can make a delicious, healthy meal for a birthday, a holiday or just a lunch or dinner. The possibilities are endless!
