Sour Cream Blueberry muffins

This recipe is compliments of the Taste of Home Cooking School.  Super easy and sooooooo yummy!  I doubled the recipe because I wanted tons of muffins.  With the oven full, it took 30 minutes for these to cook.  This may vary in your oven.  I didn't have enough Bisquick so I used part Bisquick, part Krusteaz pancake mix.  Worked beautifully!

2 cups biscuit/baking mix
¾ cup plus 2 Tablespoons sugar divided
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (unthawed)

In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix and ¾ cup sugar. In a small bowl, combine eggs and sour cream. Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined. Fold in Blueberries.

Fill greased muffin cups ¾ full. Sprinkle with remaining sugar (could use colored sugar for a festive look). Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

Makes 1 dozen good sized muffins.  (If you fill the cups less full you could actually get 18)

I can't take any credit for this recipe.  My friend Michelle sent me the link to this recipe.  I changed it up a little for our family (my kids won't eat turkey bacon) and I needed more than 6 muffins.  These are great to make on the weekend and then reheat throughout the week for a quick breakfast on the go.

1 cup plus 1/4 C fat-free skim milk
4 eggs
4 slices bacon, chopped and cooked until crispy
4 slices ham chopped

1 tablespoon plain yogurt or applesauce (instead of veg. oil)

1.  Preheat Oven to 400 degrees
2.  Scramble eggs and 1/4 C skim milk in bowl
3.  In separate bowl, combine Bisquick, 1 cup skim milk and either 1 tbs yogurt, applesauce, or veg oil
4.  Add 1/4 C scrambled egg mixture to pancake mix and blend well with fork until smooth
5.  Cook remaining scrambled eggs, then mix cooked egg, bacon & ham together.
6.  Spray muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use baking cups
7.  Add 1/2 tablespoon pancake mixture to muffin cups, spoon egg mixture into muffin cups
8.  Sprinkle with cheese.
9.  Top with remainder pancake mix
10. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden

Stuffed Breakfast Rolls

These are perfect to make on the weekend and then refrigerate for the week.  They microwave perfectly in 30 second.  It's a great portable nutritious breakfast.


2/3 bag frozen southern style hashbrowns
1 lb breakfast sausage
9 eggs

Mix dough.  While dough is rising, in a large skillet, brown breakfast sausage.  Add hashbrowns.  Cook until hashbrowns are golden brown.  In a medium bowl, beat eggs until well mixed.  Add eggs to hashbrown mixture.  Cook until eggs are fully cooked.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Allow entire mixture to cool slightly.

Take a piece of dough, slightly larger than a golf ball, and flatten until pretty thin.  Place a good size spoonful of hashbrown mixture in center.  Form dough around hashbrowns until fully sealed.  Please on greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Fiesta Chicken

My sister-in-law sent me this super easy recipe.  Thanks Jen for sharing!

4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 cans Ro-Tel Tomatoes.

Put chicken in crockpot and cover with Ro-Tel.  Cook on low in crockpot all day.  Shred it and it's great for burritos, or even quesedilla's. It's really good! A favorite around here!
