Cinnamon Breakfast Puff

Time for a different treat for breakfast.   This is my variation of an old favorite, popovers.    The high oven temperature puffs the egg/flour batter without any baking powder, soda or yeast.   What makes this so easy is that every kitchen most likely will have all the ingredients on hand!  We enjoyed a savory ham and cheddar omelet with our Cinnamon Breakfast Puff.

Cinnamon Breakfast Puff

Breakfast, Brunch

butter; for pan preparation
1/2 c raisins
6 lg eggs
1 c flour
1/2 ts salt
1 c milk
2 tb butter; melted
1 ts cinnamon

Preheat oven to 450 F.

Butter 9 X 13 METAL pan liberally.  Scatter raisins over bottom of pan.  Place in freezer until completely chilled.   WARNING!!  You must use a metal or Pyrex will not work.

In blender, add eggs, flour, salt, milk, melted butter and cinnamon.  Blend on high until frothy.    For a little extra cinnamon flavor, sprinkle a little cinnamon over raisins before scattering in pan.

Bake for 18 minutes.  Lower oven temperature to 350F and continue baking for 10 minutes.  The batter will puff up as if making popovers and have a very wavy uneven surface.

Serve immediately with maple syrup.  Sprinkle with confectioners sugar if desired.

A Lazy Day at Hootin' Holler

Every now and then, it becomes a lazy weekend at Hootin' Holler.  The most ambitious thing I did all day was order a pizza from Papa John's and that  doesn't happen too often.  As a matter of fact, I have ordered "pick up" pizza twice in the last ten years.  My usual habit is to make my own pizza at home, which I must say, I do a pretty good job with my Fine Cooking pizza dough.   

Lots of Coupons!

Ready to enjoy.....but....
I used the internet site to order this pizza.  The time...about 420PM for a pick up at 530P.   I suspect that the pizza was made as they received the order.  When I pick up, the pizza was "cool"...but the pizza remained flavorful. 

Pizza will be ready at 530 this evening and I was feeling guilty about my lack of effort, I decided to make one of my favorite ice creams.    Cuisinart makes an ice cream maker that is so easy, you can make ice cream out of most anything, including any cooked pudding.  Here is my Chocolate-Coconut Ice Cream that is so easy and so good.   For years, I have been so impressed going to up scale restaurants and they serve exotic and flavorful ice creams.  Most are done in house and I know is EASY.   I would sell my selections for eight bucks a scoop!   Enjoy....

Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

Ice Cream

2  egg yolks
1/2 c sugar
1 tb cornstarch
1/4 c cocoa powder
1 1/2 c heavy cream
1 1/2 c milk
1 ts almond extract
1/2 c flaked coconut

In medium sauce pan, add egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch and cocoa powder.  Whisk completely to combine.

Add heavy cream and milk. Whisk to combine.  While constantly stirring with wooden spoon, bring to a slow boil and cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and add almond extract.  Place in chilled area for two hour or until completely cooled.

Using your Cuisinart Ice Cream maker, add the chilled chocolate custard to the rotating bowl. Instructions will be included with Cuisinart Ice Cream maker available at Williams/Sonoma.

Freeze for 15 to 18 minutes, until the custard is the consistancy of soft serve ice cream. While machine is running, slowly add flaked coconut and continue until machine slows and is ready to stop.

Remove ice cream from freezing container and transfer to a container of your choice. Do not store ice cream in the freezer bowl. Freeze until ready to serve.

Bon Appétit!

Bar-B-Q Breakfast

Today's breakfast started yesterday with Heavenly Hog Bar-B-Q  located in Clinton , TN.   They have some of the best BBQ you have ever put to your lips.    Of course, my favorite is the pork but they also offer Sandwiches with  Pork, Brisket, Chicken and Bologna.  The ribs are fall off the bone good with their smoky sweet sauce.   Heavenly also offers a hot sauce...a little over the top for me.  

I brought home extra pork yesterday and decided to get a little inventive in the kitchen...after a couple of cups of Eight O'clock Italian Roast coffee.  

 I started with left over BBQ pork in ovenproof serving dishes.   Added the 
eggs and into the oven at 350F for 15 minutes.  

Cheese grits are a standard offering at breakfast.  

Eggs are perfect with the BBQ, grits and whole wheat toast.  
V-8 Juice to complete.  

The Morning Glories are still thriving and beautiful!
