Iron Skillet Corn Bread

Corn bread! Great as a side for bbq, soups, or holiday dishes. This is a simple recipe for corn bread using an iron skillet in the oven. You can also use this same recipe for cooking the corn bread on the grill using the skillet.

1 Package Jiffy Corn Bread mix
1/3 Cup of milk
1 Egg
1 Tbsp butter (for skillet)

Preheat the oven to 400 and mix the ingredients together in a bowl and set aside for a few minutes. Coat the inside of the iron skillet (we use a 10 inch) with butter. Give the batter a quick mix after it has sat for a few and pour contents into the skillet. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes or until golden brown.


Caprese and Egg White Breakfast Sandwich

Bread is optional, if you are looking for a low carb and low cal breakfast try without the bread or bun! In this version we used bagel thins.

1/2 Pint of grape tomatoes, halved
1 Tbsp butter
1 Clove of garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp chopped basil
1 Cup of egg whites
2 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella
4 Slices of bread/roll of choice

Saute tomatoes, garlic and basil in melted butter over medium heat. When tomatoes are soft, add egg whites and fold ingredients together to ensure even distribution. Cook until eggs are done and remove from heat. Remember egg whites cook quickly, so keep an eye on them. Add cheese to the hot eggs so that it melts slightly. Load eggs onto bread, cut and serve!

Waffles with Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

This is a great option for hosting a breakfast for a dozen or so people if you have access to toasters. I recently hosted a breakfast presentation at work and laid out the Waffles with Fruit and Yogurt Parfait and it was a big hit with the team. People who wanted a hearty breakfast piled fruit and yogurt onto a waffle, and those looking for a light and nutritious (yet filling) option went with the parfait. One other advantage of the yogurt parfait is how easy it can be enjoyed while participating in a group meeting, no mess. Great for a work scenario or a social brunch on the weekend.

1 Package of 24 frozen waffles
1 Bunch of bananas
2-3 Pints of strawberries
2 Quarts of yogurt (try to get two flavors to provide options)
1 Box of Kashi GoLean Crunch (or traditional granola if preferred)
1 Bottle of preferred maple syrup

Slice fruit and place into separate bowls with serving spoons. Open yogurt and either spoon into separate bowls or just include spoon and serve from containers as-is. Pour cereal into large bowl and include a spoon for serving.

On a large plate or cutting board, remove waffles from package and stack them for easy access. Place waffle tray next to or near toasters so that people can easily toast and build their fruit and yogurt waffles.

For parfait, ideally you can provide glass cups for people to build their parfait, but if glass is not available a regular plastic or ceramic cup will work just fine. With the same ingredients laid out for the waffle, people can make a parfait by taking a glass, filling it with a base of yogurt, adding fruit and then sprinkle cereal on top!

Add butter to frying pan with medium-low heat and fry two eggs. While eggs are cooking, shred cheese. When eggs are done, remove from pan and add tortillas to the pan to heat. When tortillas are heated, place on plate, add beans, cheese and eggs on top. Add sliced avocado and salsa.
