So, I don't know about your family but my family doesn't usually make it up in the morning in time for a nice sit down breakfast together. We usually surrender to the cereal calling our name from the box or the lonely eggs in the fridge.
My husband is a HUGE breakfast fan, so whenever I have an open slot to fill during the week for my meal plan we fit in a nice breakfast for dinner or "brinner" as we call it.
I found this recipe on a bed and breakfast website so I figured it MUST be yummy. All I can say is that this amazing dish could also work as dessert! It tastes like a mix between french toast, pancake and bread pudding. SERIOUSLY DIVINE!
The best part? I had all the ingredients on hand. It was so cheap to make b/c most of the ingredients are staples you probably have sitting in your kitchen right now. Pair it with some bacon and freshly squeezed orange juice and you've got a great brinner!
Add this to your list girls (and guys!), you have got to try this one!
Here is what you need:
6 eggs , 1 1/2 C milk, 1 cup flour, 3T sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1 1/2 sticks of butter, 2 apples cut and sliced (any cooking apples will do!)
Step 1: Peel your 2 apples
Step 3: Slice them up!
Step 4: Place 1 1/2 sticks of butter in your 9 x 13 pan and let melt at 425 degrees. Once butter is melted, add your apples and let cook until butter starts to bubble.
Step 5: Mix together: 6 eggs , 1 1/2 C milk, 1 cup flour, 3T sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Step 6: Mix it real good!
Step 7: Take your dish out of the oven and pour the batter over the apples and butter. The apples and butter will rise to the top, don't let it freak you out- you are doing it right! Add 2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar to the top.
Now bake at 425 for 20 minutes until puffed (and I mean PUFFED) and brown.
Step 8: While your amazing dish is baking, squeeze some fresh orange juice. This is about as fresh as it gets in our house!
Step 9: Fry up some bacon
Then enjoy your meal! Seriously, when I looked at this in the oven baking I thought I did something wrong! They weren't joking when they named this a "puff pastry!" I thought it was going to puff right out of the pan!
My husband, however said that it looked like a "chef" had made it. He said it was very impressive looking. So if you are looking to impress your family tonight with a SUPER EASY brinner, you have hit the jackpot!
If your family loves "brinner" as much as mine, leave a comment and share your favorite brinner meal with us!
Cost of Meal for a family of 6: $6.00
I seriously didn't know how to calculate this b/c almost everything is a staple! The $2.00 is for 1/2 a dozen eggs and 2 apples, $2.50 for a pack of bacon and $1.50 for orange juice. If you don't do bacon and already have orange juice, then it's even cheaper!
Cost per person: $1.00
