Easy Danish Kringle

DSC_0566

I  found one of the easiest brunch recipes today.  Your’re going to either hate me or love me.  Especially when we’ve all made our New Year’s resolutions to be more healthy.  It won’t hurt to indulge in just one small piece, though.  The recipe is  from one of my favorite recipe sources Pillsbury. It is a bake-off winner from 1998 and so simple that if will leave you wondering if you have done something wrong.  I just bet that you have all the ingredients right there in your kitchen to get this started at your earliest convenience.  You’ll need a  Pillsbury pie crust, light brown sugar, softened butter, chopped pecans, and powdered sugar.  While to pastry is coming to room temperature you can measure all your ingredients.  In a mere 30 minutes you will have one of the best pastries that you could buy anywhere.

Now here’s how to put it together.

Sky-High Brunch Bake

Talk about a show stopper this Sky-High Brunch Bake is one that will stop you in your tracks!  I could not resist making it when I saw the picture in Food and Family by Kraft.  It is beautiful to look at and it is quite tasty.  I am keeping this bookmarked to use during the holiday season for a brunch because the green spinach and red peppers are so colorful!  Don’t let the beautiful picture intimidate you because it is super simple to make if you can get past rolling out the pastry dough.  Just follow the thawing directions on the box.  You can thaw it overnight in the refrigerator or leave it out for about 45 minutes ahead of time.  I like to thaw it out in the refrigerator.  If you let it get too warm just put it back in the refrigerator for a few minutes.  The pastry dough is very forgiving.  The rest of the recipe is a cinch to make.  Trust me by saying the novice cook can pull this off without a hitch and come out smelling like a rose!

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

This is without a doubt the best Banana Bread that I have ever had! I love banana bread right out of the oven or several days old toasted with a little dollop of butter.  With a nice hot cup of coffee there is nothing better to start my morning.  I fell in love with this bread several years ago when my sister-in-law baked it for breakfast Christmas morning.  I just could not stop gushing over how moist and flavorful it was and could not wait to get home and try the recipe. After making it many times I have gotten it to the point of perfection.

French Toast made under the Broiler

I have made French toast since I was 12 years old cooking breakfast for myself and my two younger sisters.  French Toast was on the menu most mornings.  You know it is easy if a 12-year-old can do it.   I never followed a recipe.  I just cracked 2 eggs, added milk, and mixed with a fork.  I heated my mother’s cast iron skillet to a medium high heat.  Then dropped a  couple of tablespoons of butter into the skillet.  As the butter heated I just dipped the bread into the egg mixture and threw it in the skillet.  Perfection with some syrup.  I could do this in less than ten minutes!

Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Recipes that are made ahead of time are some of the best to have in your back pocket.  Just pull them out when you’re having company or heck  just used them to treat yourself.  I hate to be rushed and anything that can be done the day before makes life easier.  I have been using this recipe for years.  It is our traditional Christmas morning special.  Many breakfast casseroles call for as many as a dozen eggs and this one only uses four eggs.  That’s really reducing the amount of cholesterol which is a good thing.
