Had enough Apple pies already? Then just change the apples into something new to make this fruit good or even better.
The delicate sweetness in this juicy course is easy to approach with just a handful of ingredients, including kosher salt, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, and sliced apples.
First, you need to cut them into slices. In order to have uniformly cuts, you should use a sharp apple corer. This tool can reduce your prep time too.
The next step is to season them all together and put these on a skillet for five minutes in medium heat. And voila! It is ready to be served hot with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
Moreover, because apple and cinnamon indeed go well with each other, an additional sprinkle of cinnamon powder would be a creative touch to enhance the smell. And who knows, maybe kids and family members could smell this from miles away!
High in fiber, this banana delight is a great breakfast side choice to swallow whole.
The main ingredient for one serving contains a banana, brown sugar, orange juice, and cardamom.
Cook the ingredients except for the banana in medium heat and then add the banana last, gently stir them together so the fruit won’t get mushy. Sprinkles with toasted macadamias and shredded coconut, and the dishes are ready to be served.
How To Be Packed Yet Radiate The Beauty Goddess Vibe In Daylight:
It is a norm that everything is healthy in the presence of vegetables and fruits. These colorful things, but mainly green, could boost your mood and productivity, enhance your digestion, reduce fat, prevent disease by increasing your immune system.
Therefore, adding smoothie and salad to your breakfast routine will be a splendid decision if you ever feel bored and want to care for your health more.
Creamy Banana Smoothie
Tired of milk and juice, the banana smoothie is cheap yet quick to make substitutions. Sprinkle this sweet baby with cinnamon powder or oats to a more refined taste. This simple yet effective side helps to balance your breakfast, which could be full of fat.
The Ultimate Custom-Made Healthy Smoothie.
Still not satisfied? How about a DIY smoothie to your liking? Mix and match your favorite fruits, veggies for a beautiful combination of your own. However, you also need a high-function blender for green smoothies to have the freshest and smoothest drinks.
And here is a simple guide to provide the ultimate tips for the smoothies in everyone’s dreams!
This creative recipe has only 5 steps.
- Firstly is to choose the fruit you love.
- The second is to add some veggies for nutrition, ranging from spinach, celery, kale to carrot or cucumber.
- The third step is to add the base. While other recipes mainly suggest milk, these recipes give you various choices extending from yogurt, rice water to almond or coconut milk, etc.
- The fourth step is optional as you choose the add-ins to your liking that enhance the flavor; they could be peanut butter, honey, ginger to nuts, and grains.
- The last step is to close the machine lid, press the button, blend them all together and while praying that your secret combination reign! (If not, maybe you should try to Doodle another one all again?)
The 4 Delicious Salad Combinations:
Versatile and easy to make. The salad sides typically consist of vegetables topped with various foods, from eggs, cheese, meat to fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, beans, or even your leftovers.
You can always make one swift; however, I suggest using pre-washed greens, pre-cut veggies, and leftovers if you want to cut down the preparation time. Besides, a decent salad spinner should be ready in your kitchen to help you clean and dry greens in a snap.
If you are still hesitating on what to make? Then you could follow the 4 salad combinations below.
- The Spinach-Berry Salad: Spinach base, topped with homemade granola, walnuts, tangerines, coconut flakes, and blueberry vinaigrette
- Mexican Salad: shredded romaine lettuce topped with sweet potato, black beans, corn, red peppers, salsa, and avocado-based dressing
- Smoky Sesame Salad: Arugula topped with smoked salmon or tempeh, quinoa, cucumbers, sesame seeds, and a dash of lemon juice.
- Poached-Egg Salad: Kale topped with poached eggs, cranberries, pecans, cherry tomatoes, and whole-grain pita chips.
- Scrambled-Tofu Salad: Mixed greens topped with butternut squash, apples, radishes, onions, and scrambled tofu.
P/s: If you plan to bring the salad with you on the go, remember to pack the dressing separately to prevent it from becoming soggy.
Mama Oldie-Goodies Potato Treats:
Imagining yourself becoming a painter and potatoes is your blank canvas to draw. Nothing can ever go wrong with these old-goodies; whether boiled, fried, mashed, baked, or cooked, nothing can ever go wrong with these old-goodies!
Garlic-Butter Boiled Potato
This simple dish has the magic to turn bland boiled potatoes into an incredibly satisfying side dish by adding three simple salt, butter, and fresh garlic ingredients.
- First, you need to wash the potatoes, put them in a cold water pot, and start boiling until they are fork-tender (skin just starts splitting from the potatoes flesh).
- After that, pick them out and let the potatoes sit dry for a while.
- Grab a pan, and let’s move on with making the garlic-butter coat for these lovely babies.
- Turn on medium heat to melt the butter, add the olive oil (optional), fresh garlic, seasoned the mixture with salt and black pepper, and mix the combination for 1 minute continuously.
- The last step is to return the warm potatoes back to the saucepan. Gently mix to create the perfect garlic-butter coating on the potato’s surface.
- Add some salt and black pepper as the last touch if you like a more savory taste.
The potatoes are boiled again this time, but after you cook it, you smash it until it becomes mushy and add milk while it is still warm.
However, you should know some tricks to thicken mashed potatoes because they might be watery sometimes. And for a more complex texture, chopped fried ham, bacon, and garlic could be added.
The only thing left to do in this case is to fry some potatoes.
But let’s not do things conventionally, as you could try to cut these babies into different shapes? Apparently, there are 4 ways for you to choose, the sliced potatoes, the wedged ones, the sticks, or cubes.
You can sprinkle them with the powder you like, such as cheese, paprika, salt, or even sugar.
I believe that each cutting style has a different taste, or maybe it’s the experience of trying a new shape that made me feel this way. So don’t be hesitant and test this out yourself?
If the potatoes have sinned, it is because they are so delicious that they keep us craving for more. So this time, these fellas will be convicted to be baked under the undying flames!
To put it simply, you will need potatoes, some sliced bacon and cheese, and of course an oven.
Follow the short instruction video of only 58 secs below for some real good Steakhouse-style potatoes that are crispy on the outside but fluffy within.
Shh! You don’t hear the wrong, baked potato is on the 2 dollars breakfast.
Oh dear, Mr. Potato, this is not over yet, as I already came up with a brilliant plan of making your leftover mashed potatoes into cakes.
The tips are to add flour, eggs, or cheese to your pieces.
Adjust the mixture depending on the amount of mashed potato left, such as adding more wheat flour if the potatoes are runny and less if they are thick. Whip them carefully to have a smooth batter and add spices to your liking.
Summer Non-Cook Oatmeal
Want to enjoy an idly Sunday of your own? Care to cook nothing and just sit there to have a break after a busy week?
Or just want to eat something cool and fresh but too lazy to turn on the heat, then the summer non-cook oatmeal is a perfect choice for you.
Prepare a bowl of milk, add oats, and the topping of your favorites like dried fruit, nuts, or cinnamon, and mix them well together.
Remember to adjust the amounts of oats in milk for your density liking. The last step is to cover up and toss this into the fridge for hours to achieve a tender yet cooling product.
The Fruit Yogurt Parfait
Another healthy high fiber side but also fills your stomach is this Fruit Yogurt Parfait.
The dish is easy to make as one just needs to mix any fruits they like together with yogurt, cover the mixture with grains, nuts, cereal to be filled for longer.
These colorful toppings will turn your yogurt bowl into a restaurant parfait that will trigger your appetite and chase the heat away.
Enough with those green stuff. Let me introduce you to the world of cheese and all its beautiful combinations. The motto is all hail to the Cheese majesty!
This rich and creamy southern favorite had to find its way on this list. It is easy to make yet goes exceptionally well with fried or poached eggs and grilled chicken.
Simmer in the grits with cheese, milk, butter, paprika, and eggs in a pan first, then transfer them to the oven to bake for about two hours. The result is a delicious creamy coarser texture that one’s ready to die for.
Add goat cheese, sour cream, butter to your mashed potatoes and sprinkle it with Parmesan for a nice golden-brown coat after getting out from the oven. What can I say? These recipe combinations just can’t get any better!
If you cannot like goat cheese’s taste, there are various replacements for goat cheese to make your recipe more special.
Care for some creamy yet salty biscuits?
This recipe might change your sweet tooth desire. Instead of the traditional biscuit batter, this side is simply invented by adding the Cheddar cheese, fresh chives, and crispy cooked bacon to the recipe.
Baked in the oven till they are golden brown and it is ready to be served as a delicious snack breakfast side that every family member loves.
Kids hating veggies? This cheesy mushroom and broccoli butter casserole might fix this for you.
Prepare a large pot, melt 3 tablespoons of butter and flour in medium heat until it turns golden.
Continue adding the broccoli, a cup of cheese and rice, some mushrooms, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, and heavy cream.
Season it with salt and pepper, then top with shredded Cheddar, bake for about 20 minutes until the dish is melted and golden. Best serve hot.
Wondering what to do with yesterday’s leftovers? This cheesy gratin is best served with your roasted turkey, fried chicken, or grilled steak.
While one could mistake it with macaroni and cheese, the cooked barley spice with onions, garlic, and thyme give a signature taste to the dish, deep in aroma and rich in flavor.
In any case, the cheese will no doubt make everything better. By adding bacon, grated sharp Cheddar to your daily salad will definitely improve the taste of your morning portion.
Don’t forget to add the chef special’s cayenne-spiked buttermilk dressing to perfect the taste.
The Hefty-Meaty Heaven
One always has to know how to treat himself well. What is a better way to do this than indulging yourselves in this full-flesh heaven and walking out feeling full of stamina like Superman/women!
Sugar Cured Ham
Care to try a different taste of smoked ham, but don’t wanna change the ham? Then I recommend you sugar-cured ham for an unforgettable finger-licking good experience.
However, the disadvantage to this exquisite dish is that it is difficult to purchase at stores, so you might want to learn how to make it with the help of the internet.
Some people also wonder if they can freeze ham for longer shelf life? Technically, yes, they can, but it requires some tips to ensure the best result.
Be hesitant no more cause I bet it is a dish that both adults and kids adore.
If ham can be sweetened, then why would bacon not be?. Give your salty bacon a crispy caramelized coat to savor along with pancakes for a simple yet nutritious morning.
It is time to stun your family and guests with your fantastic new invention and prepare to be ‘coated’ with praise!
Beef Sausage Gravy
This is a breakfast for Hercules. The best way to start your day full of energy. With this meaty sauce, anything you have for breakfast will taste far better.
The benefits to this hot, hefty, and full of protein beef sausage gravy will enhance the flavor of the leftovers meat products, making them juicy and warm again.
Moreover, preparing an entire stock of this rich sauce in the fridge will guarantee your leftovers never be bland again.
