Today’s Menu: Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef!

 

French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links 001
It was French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links for my Breakfast this morning! For the French Toast I used Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, Ground Cinnamon, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Just mix the first three ingredients together, amount depends on how many slices you are making. Preheat a skillet, add butter, and preheat on medium. Dip your bread in the mixture and grill in the pan until done, flipping once. I love the combo of the Nutmeg and Cinnamon for his! Topped it with some Maple Groves Sugarless Maple Syrup. For the Links I used Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef! 003

After Breakfast Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market, which was fine by me! Love shopping there! The store is so huge and just packed with items from Ground Kangaroo to Quail Eggs. The best Deli, Produce, Meat, and Seafood Departments you can find. We ended up the rest of the morning there! Still fairly hot and humid but we have some days coming in the 70’s and no humidity! Can’t wait. So for Dinner tonight – Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef!

 

 

 

Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef! 002

So tonight I kept it light and simple. A Roast Beef Sandwich along with Chips and Dips sounded good for Dinner. To make the Sandwich I’ll be using; Boar’s Head Deluxe Low Sodium Oven Roasted Beef – Cap-Off Top Round, Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Roast Beef is always so fresh and the Beef is cooked to a perfect Rare and seasoned just right. I picked up the Boar’s Head Roast Beef while at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier today. The Deli Department carries every Boar’s Head Meat and Cheese that’s available. Love that store!

 

 

Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef! 005_crop
For the Chips I used Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and for the Dip I used Heluva Good Dip – Bacon Horseradish Dip. I don’t have a lot of Chips and Dips but when I do I try to have Reduced Chips and keep it light on the Dips. To drink I had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 
Boar’s Head Deluxe Low Sodium Oven Roasted Beef – Cap-Off Top Round

Top round beef that is coated with salt, pepper and garlic and then oven roasted until tender and delicious. This product is sugar-free and a good source of iron. We suggest pairing with our Lacey Swiss Cheese.

Healthy Christmas brunch recipes you can make ahead.Eating Well
Spend more time with friends and family and less time in the kitchen with these make-ahead Christmas brunch recipes. Healthy brunch recipes like Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole and Baked Apple-Cinnamon French Toast can be made the night before and just popped in the oven before your guests arrive. And don’t forget healthy baked goods like Cranberry Bundt Cake, Lemon-Raspberry Muffins and Greek Walnut Spice Cake, many of which can be made several days in advance.

 

 

 

Cranberry Bundt Cake
In this healthy cranberry-walnut Bundt cake recipe, Greek yogurt and shredded apple or pear keep the cake moist and are a healthy substitute for extra butter. If you want to use something other than allspice, try pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon in the filling. For a nut-free variation, omit the walnuts in the cake or use chopped dried cranberries in their place….

 

 

 

Cranberry-Pecan Cinnamon Rolls
This cranberry-pecan cinnamon roll recipe is a cinch to put together—there’s no kneading and no rolling of any dough. These rolls are baked in a muffin tin and are already perfectly portioned, making them great for a morning treat or as part of a brunch menu….

One of America’s Favorites – Breakfast

Breakfast is the first meal taken after rising from a night’s sleep, most often eaten in the early morning before undertaking the day’s work. Among English speakers, “breakfast” can be used to refer to this meal or to refer to a meal composed of traditional breakfast foods (such as eggs, oatmeal and sausage) served at any time of day. The word literally refers to breaking the fasting period of the prior night.
Breakfast foods vary widely from place to place, but often include a carbohydrate such as grains or cereals, fruit and/or vegetables, a protein food such as eggs, meat or fish, and a beverage such as tea, coffee, milk or fruit juice. Coffee, milk, tea, juice, breakfast cereals, pancakes, sausages, French toast, bacon, sweet breads, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, muffins, crumpets and toast with butter or margarine and/or jam or marmalade are common examples of breakfast foods, though a large range of preparations and ingredients are associated with breakfast globally.

 

 

 

Nutritional experts have referred to breakfast as the most important meal of the day, citing studies that find that people who skip breakfast are disproportionately likely to have problems with concentration, metabolism, weight, and cardiac health. The nutritionist Monica Reinagel has argued the metabolic benefits have been exaggerated, noting the improvement in cognition has been found among children, but is much less significant among adults. Reinagel also explains that the link between skipping breakfast and increased weight is likely behavioral—compensating with snacks and/or eating more later—and therefore not inevitable.

 

 

 

An example of a country breakfast in U.S. This includes waffles with fruit and sausage patties.

Breakfast will often consist of either a cereal-based dish or an egg-based dish. Coffee is the most common breakfast beverage amongst adults, but is not popular with children. Tea is also widely consumed in Canada during breakfast. Orange juice and, to a lesser extent, pineapple or apple juice, are consumed by people of all ages. In the United States, 65% of coffee is drunk during breakfast hours.
The way in which breakfast eggs are prepared ranges from the simple, such as scrambled or fried, to the slightly more complex, such as eggs benedict. Breakfast omelettes are also very popular, especially the Western or Denver omelette, which contains ham, peppers, and onions. Steak is a popular accompaniment to eggs outside of the northeast, where it is relatively rare. Bacon, hash browns, toast, and sausage links are all very commonly served alongside eggs.
Grain-based dishes include waffles, pancakes, French toast, crepes in Canada, and cereal with milk. Porridge, such as Red River Cereal is quite popular in Canada, and may be consumed with maple syrup, nuts, dried fruit, or brown sugar.
In both Canada and the United States, the traditional full breakfast is popular, though is more commonly eaten on weekends and holidays. During the week, a smaller breakfast is commonly eaten, often immediately before or while commuting to work or school.
In Canada, and somewhat less commonly the United States, maple syrup may be served with most breakfast dishes including oatmeal, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and even ham.
In the Southeastern United States, grits are popularly eaten at breakfast.
Foods typically considered to be breakfast foods are often available all day at diners, leading to them being consumed at novel times, which is likely responsible for the term “breakfast for dinner” or “brinner.”
