4.      peel under cold water

 

Egg Puff

Puree 2-3 cups cottage cheese

Mix in 10-12 eggs

¼ to ½ cup flour

1-2 t baking powder

Sprinkle top with cheese (I do this just to lessen the cost and calories, it is of course much tastier with a ton of cheese added!)

At this point you can bake this in a greased 13. 9. 2. or thinner pan like a jelly roll…don’t bake too thick or it will take too long. I have not perfected the exact time yet. If you get to this before me let me know. Bake this off and serve with salsa and sour cream etc. or add any ingredients below:

 

To this add:

t-1 cups Monterey jack, cheddar or mozzarella cheese

½ -1 cup green chilis

Sausage

Mushrooms

Anything

​ SPINACH & GOAT CHEESE EGG MUFFINS
Ingredients
• 12 eggs
• 2 Tablespoons cream (or use milk or nut milk )
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon pepper
• 2 cups fresh baby spinach, packed down a little
• 1/2 cup goat cheese
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12- cup muffin tin.
2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with cream or milk. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Gently stir in spinach.
3. Crumble goat cheese into egg mixture. Mix gently until cheese is mixed in well.
4. Fill each muffin cup in the tin with 1/3 cup egg mixture.
5. Bake egg muffins for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Let rest in pan 10 minutes before removing, if you don’t want the muffins to fall.

To freeze: Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Place egg muffins on top of cookie sheet
and freeze until muffins are solid. Store frozen muffins in a labeled Ziploc bag in
the freezer. In the morning, just pull out as many as you need, and keep the rest
in the freezer.

Soaked Pancakes

 

Page in NT: 478

Yield:

Makes 16-20 pancakes

Ingredients:

2 cups freshly ground whole wheat pastry flour (or spelt, kamut flour)

2 cups yogurt, buttermilk or kefir

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 T melted butter

Preparation:

Soak flour in yogurt (or buttermilk/kefir) in warm place for 12-24 hours. After soaking time, stir in other ingredients and add water to obtain the desired thinness. Cook on a hot, oiled griddle or cast-iron skillet. The pancakes cook longer than regular pancakes and have a slightly chewy texture and mild sour taste, which is very pleasing. Serve with melted butter, real grade B maple syrup, raw honey, berry syrup, or fruit butter.

POWERCAKES

 

24 eggs divided

2 cups cottage cheese

4 scoops protein

2c oatmeal

1 cup flax

3 cup quinoa

2T baking powder

4 T canola oil

5 T cinnamon

1 T vanilla

 

 

Plain ol’ pancakes

 

1 ¼ flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 egg

1 cup milk

T TB oil

Make 10-12

 

 

*CREPES*

1 1/2 cups flour

1 TA sugar (we omit)

1/2 teas. Baking powder

1/2 teas. Salt (we omit)

2 cups milk

2 eggs

1/2 teas. Vanilla

2 TA oil

 

Beat until smooth - fry on non-stick pan - makes about 12 crepes (that’s what the recipe says, and since we make 5 or 6 times this amount, I don't know exactly how many a single batch makes.

 

Crepes

Makes: 12-16 crepes    

Time: 30 mins

 

1 cup flour.

Pinch of salt.

1¼ cups milk.

2 eggs.

2 tablespoons melted and cooled butter, canola, or other neutral oil, plus more (unmelted) for cooking.

1 tablespoon sugar.

 

 

Combine the flour, salt, and milk and beat until smooth (you can do this in a blender if you like, but do not over blend). Beat or blend in the eggs and stir in the melted butter or oil. If time allows, refrigerate for an hour and beat again.

Place a small non-stick skillet with shallow sides over a medium heat. When a drop of water skitters across the surface before evaporating add ½ teaspoon of butter. Ladle about 1 tablespoon of batter in the skillet and swirl it around so that it forms a thin layer in the bottom of the pan. Pour excess batter back into the bow or blender container.

The batter will dry before your eyes; when the top is no liquid, less than a minute, turn the crepe and cook the other side for about 15 seconds. The crepe should brown only very slightly and not become crisp. Repeat the process adding butter to the skillet (if you use a non-stick skillet, you won’t need any at all) and adjusting the heat as needed. Stack the finished crapes on a plate; you will usually need to reheat before serving.

 

 

Irene’ Cahill’s pancakes:

Add some baking soda in the morning

But night before:

 

Equal parts grain to buttermilk (or whey) overnight. I add an egg and softened butter in the morning. (About 1/2 stick per 4 cups batter) I usually use whole wheat, but buckwheat is good as well, or a mix of both. If I have the cheese from the raw milk I add it too, since my kids don't like anything else I’ve tried with it so far.

 

Blender Pancake and Waffle Batter: Amannda Schneider

AMOUNT: 3 - 4 Servings (8--6" pancakes or 3 to 4--7" waffles)

1. Place in blender; blend at highest speed 3 minutes (less in a Vita-Mix or Bosch), while adding enough liquid to maintain a vortex:

   1 cup buttermilk or yogurt thinned with water to same 
      consistency or 1 1/4+ cups for waffles--a thinner batter is best 
      (Non-dairy allergy alternatives: rice, coconut, almond milk, 
       apple juice or apple sauce + 1 Tbsp. vinegar)
    1 tablespoon olive oil  (optional, but recommended)
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional for flavor, omit with buckwheat)
    1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats or whole oats or other grain
    1/2 cup buckwheat, brown rice, corn, millet, or other grain 

   These are raw whole uncooked grains, not flour!

2. Cover blender and let stand at room temperature several hours or overnight for improved nutrition. Optional but recommended: See the Two Stage Process.

3. Preheat griddle on medium-high (until water drops sizzle on surface), 
   or waffle iron at highest temperature.

4. Just before baking, add and reblend for 1 to 3 or more minutes until smooth:

    1 egg (or alternative)
    1 tablespoon flax seed (Optional for added nutritional value)
   additional liquid (as needed to keep batter churning)

5. Blend in thoroughly, but briefly, "sifting" these through a small strainer 
  (assist with rubber spatula, if needed):

  1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste (Believe it or not, a little salt enhances a 
    sense of sweetness in whole grain baking It overcomes the "flat" taste feeling.) 
  1 teaspoon baking powder (Optional: With the Two Stage Process the baking 
    powder can be omitted, and the baking soda increased to 1/2 to 1 teaspoon as needed).  
            
   Technique tip: If you can successfully drop the soda & salt into the spinning blades at the bottom of the vortex, you can omit sifting.

6. Bake on hot griddle or in waffle iron (3 to 5 minutes until crisp), lightly 
  sprayed with non-stick olive oil spray as needed.

Mexican Breakfast Salad!
Serves 6 - Prep time 10 min, cook time 15 min
A fabulous Mexican salad fine-tuned for breakfast, made with eggs, chorizo, veggies, and baked tortillas.
Ingredients:
• 8 ounces romaine lettuce, chopped (or you could use mixed greens)
• 12 ounces chorizo sausage
• 12 large eggs
• 2 avocados, peeled and sliced
• 15 ounce can black beans, drained
• 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
• 1 cup crumbled queso fresco, feta, kefir cheese or goat cheese (you decide)
• 1 cup Fresh Salsa
• 4 Whole Grain Flour Tortillas
• 1 tablespoon butter, melted
• Ground cumin
• Garlic salt
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Cut each tortilla into 6 equal wedges. Lay them flat on the baking sheet and brush with melted butter. Then lightly sprinkle the tortilla wedges with cumin and garlic salt. Bake for 7-10 minutes until golden.
2. Meanwhile, cook the chorizo in a large skillet over medium heat. Break into small pieces with a wooden spoon and remove from heat once slightly brown.
3. Pile the chopped lettuce in a large serving bowl. Top with tomatoes, beans, sliced avocado, cooked chorizo and queso
fresco. Feel free to add even more veggies like red onions, jicama, peppers, and even pan-fried sweet potatoes!
4. Cook the eggs to order. For sunny side up, place a large skillet over medium heat. Brush the skillet with oil and crack 2-4 eggs directly over the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the whites are cooked through, then remove and repeat. For
scrambled eggs, whisk the eggs until very frothy, then pour into a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Move
around the pan to ensure they do not turn brown on the bottom. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat once the eggs are mostly firm. Place the eggs on top of the salad.
5. Serve with crispy tortilla wedges and use Fresh Salsa as the dressing.
