Single Gourmet

A quick breakfast for one usually is an English muffin or a bowl of cereal.  Here is a recipe for a different breakfast.  It does take a little longer to make, but is worth it.

IMG_0862French Toast Casserole – Butter a small casserole dish.  Add 1  Tbsp.. butter and 2 Tbsp. brown sugar,  Microwave for 20 seconds or until butter is melted and sugar is dissolver.  Cut two slices of bread into one inch cubes and place on top of melted butter and sugar.  In a bowl, mix 1/4 cup milk, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Pour mixture over bread crumbs, pressing pieces to help absorb liquid.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Drizzle maple syrup over casserole.   Cover and refrigerate over night.  In the morning, preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake for 30 minutes.   Drizzle a small amount of maple syrup over casserole before eating.

While casserole is baking,  brew coffee and cook bacon.  Do you want crispy bacon?  After placing in pan and turning heat on, pour a little less than 1/4″ of water into pan.  Cover for a few minutes.  After taking cover off, fry bacon, turning occasionally,  until it is lightly brown and the water is gone.  It will be crispy and delicious. I usually cook double the amount of bacon and use half in another recipe.

IMG_0860If you use bacon only on occasion, divide the remaining bacon in package into single servings.  Place in snack baggies and place snack baggies in a freezer bag.  Label it with the date and place in the freezer.  If you want bacon at a later date, take out one small package and thaw.  If you have company, take out two packages.



Remember to use your best dishes, silver and glassware.  What are you saving them for?  Have a great day and keep quilting

    1. I a previous blog, I stated that I hate to cook for one person and try to find gourmet meals for one. I don’t post the gourmet meals often because I either don’t like what I cook or I forget to take a picture. I’ll try to do better.
