Meaty Eggs Benedict Casserole

Eggs Benedict Casserole | Real Housemoms

Growing up my Mom would make a breakfast for us on special occasions that we call THE Hollandaise Breakfast.  It’s Eggs Benedict but on bagels and with bacon.  We love it and as it’s been shared with new family and friends, they’ve loved it too.  I’ll have to share that recipe soon but I wanted to share something with you all today that would be easy to make for a crowd on a holiday morning.  Let’s face it, we get busy on holiday mornings.  There are the traditional festivities and crowds to cook multiple dishes for and we don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen and miss all the fun.  Breakfast casseroles are my favorite breakfasts for the holidays because all the heavy lifting is done the night before so that in the morning all I have to do is preheat and bake!  So Meaty Eggs Benedict Casserole is the perfect brunch breakfast for a holiday morning.

Carrot Cake Pancakes

Carrot Cake Pancakes | Real Housemoms | #pancakes #carrotcake

I really enjoy carrot cake but don’t get to eat it that often.  My kids are not big fans, so that leaves the husband and me.  That can be very dangerous because with me in the house all day I have a hard time not sneaking “just a bite” here and there until my “just a bite” turns into the entire cake!  I will admit I have very little will power.   So these Carrot Cake Pancakes are perfect because I can get that delicious flavor of the carrot cake in a pancake.  Plus, there is very little judgement when I eat pancakes versus eating an entire cake for breakfast! :) [Read more...]

Lemon and Blueberry French Toast Bake

Lemon Blueberry French Toast Bake

As Easter gets closer I start thinking about the menu and how I can make it easier.  It seems like Easter morning is one of the busiest holiday mornings.  We usually do Christmas Mass on Christmas Eve because the kids are young and the excitement of opening presents makes it difficult to get out that morning.  With Easter, though they have their Easter baskets to go through but that doesn’t take long so we can make our way to Church that morning.  Plus, the Easter bunny visits our house while we’re at Church and hides all the eggs that the kids decorated.   So a quick breakfast is ideal for Easter morning and French Toast bakes are my favorite breakfasts for busy mornings or brunch and we have a few like this Maple Sausage French Toast Bake[Read more...]

Carrot Raisin Scones

Carrot Raisin Scones | Real Housemoms

I don’t know if it’s because of Spring or that we’re getting closer to Easter but I can’t get enough of carrots.  My youngest LOVES them!  I had to start buying the giant bag of baby carrots and put them in the fridge where he could reach them.  He called them his anytime snack because I always let him have them anytime he wanted them.  I’ve been seeing all the great recipes for carrot cake and thought I wanted to try something different but with the yummy flavor.  I thought about muffins I used to get but then decided on a scone!

Corned Beef and Dubliner Omelette

Corned Beef and Dubliner Omelette | Real Housemoms #breakfast #omelette #cornedbeef

Corned beef is so good but we only (or I only) eat it at St. Patrick’s day.   I decided this year that I was going to at least make it several times for St. Patrick’s Day.   So I wanted to come up with different ways to have it other than to just eat it with cabbage and mustard or on a sandwich.  There is NOTHING wrong with either of those, they are some of my favorite ways to eat corned beef, but if I’m going to get a lot of it in I need to mix things up.  That’s when I thought it would make a great breakfast, and the idea for this corned beef and dubliner cheese omelette was born!
