Bacon Waffles with Peanut Butter-Honey Glaze

Bacon Waffles with Peanut Butter-Honey Glaze | The Blonde Buckeye

When I’m in the mood for brunch (which is always), I always have an internal struggle between savory options like eggs/bacon/omelette, or sweets like waffles/french toast/pancakes.  It’s a constant dilemma. I think I may have come up with the perfect solution by adding the savory into my sweet. And it was awesome. Then again, when you see bacon + peanut butter, you can usually assume the awesome part.Continue Reading

Individual Egg Frittatas

Mini Egg Frittatas | The Blonde Buckeye

I am a “breakfast person”. I NEED breakfast in the morning to survive even a few hours. Or I get grumpy. I never understood those that say they aren’t “breakfast people”. It’s the most important meal of the day people. It’s a fact. More often than not, I like eggs in the morning. They are filling, healthy & they start my day off on the right foot. Do I always have time to cook up some eggs in the morning? No. Actually, almost never. I’m also a “I hit the snooze button several times” person. That’s why preparation is key here folks. You just whip these up on a Sunday night, and you have your breakfast ready. You just pop it in the microwave to reheat it. Done-and-done.Continue Reading

Baked Apple-Cinnamon French Toast

Mini Baked Apple-Cinnamon French Toast | The Blonde Buckeye

Baked French Toast is something that definitely has to be made in advance. The more time it has to soak up the egg mixture, the better it is. These are perfect to make the night before, or at least a few hours ahead of time. Which can be good or bad, depending on how prepared or impatient you are. Plus, when you make little individual ramekins, everybody gets that nice crusty top, paired with the soft, pillowy center (and small things are cute). Side note, I also enjoyed one of these the day after I baked them. I just popped it in the microwave & it was just as delicious as the day before. I can also tell you that it helped out my Monday morning tremendously.Continue Reading

Frosted Flake Crusted French Toast

Frosted Flake Crusted French Toast | The Blonde Buckeye

Well, sometimes you just don’t need to choose between french toast & cereal, do you? Exhibit A: Frosted Flake Crusted French Toast. I’m not even kidding, this might be the best french toast I’ve ever had. Seriously. I’ve seen some other cereal-crusted french toast recipes, but let me tell you why this one is better. First of all, you’re already going for french toast, you might as well go for Frosted Flakes over say, Corn Flakes. This isn’t a green juice people. Also, this recipe is baked, rather than cooked on the stove top. This is key for 2 reasons; one being that sugary cereal will most likely burn in a skillet.  Second, sometimes french toast can get soggy, especially once you add syrup. This french toast has a sweet, super crunchy exterior & soft interior. It’s kiiind of perfect.

Peanut Butter Banana Waffles with PB Glaze

Peanut Butter-Banana Waffles with Peanut Butter Glaze | The Blonde Buckeye

As you might know, I enjoy a good food holiday.  Any excuse to makes S’mores & things like that are always welcome in my home.  So when I realized that March 1st is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, I had take full advantage & celebrate with Peanut Butter Banana Waffles (duh).  I didn’t want to take any chances with experimentation today, so I did the sensible thing & went with something I know; waffles.  Because waffles & I always get along, especially when peanut butter’s involved.
