Uh-oh! Our Nerd Is Showing…

2 Oct
We were about 3 weeks into school and 2 weeks behind in our work after our promise to keep up with our work lapsed 2 weeks ago. So we decided to have a study par-tay! On a Friday night! Sorry, our nerd is showing. Although, to be fair, we didn’t accomplish much work. Homework deserves comfort food. And comfort food is breakfast for dinner.

Our menu included:
-scrambled eggs
-hash browns
-fake sasuage (fasuage)
-chocolate chip pancake muffins (adapted from bakerella.com )
Scrambled Eggs. Just scramble as you usually would, you can cook with bacon grease or butter/olive oil. We used bacon grease. We used 6 eggs, one per person.

Hash browns. Preheat to 425 degrees. Place thawed hash browns in pam-sprayed cookie pan. Add salt, pepper and olive oil and mix with your hands. Cook in oven for 15 to 20 minutes until crispy.
Bacon. Cut strips in half and place in hot pan. Cook until crispy, turning once. When crispy, remove from pan and put on paper towel to drain the grease (which can be used for the hash browns and the scrambled eggs).

Fausage. Just microwave according to box’s directions.

Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins. Made 12 muffins, 2 per person.
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
.5 tsp. baking soda
.25 tsp. salt
2 tblsp. sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tblsp. pure maple syrup
2 tblsp. melted butter
.5 cup milk
.5 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. of mexican vanilla
.25 tsp. cinnamon

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugar. Sift together with a wire whisk.

Step 3. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, vanilla, maple syrup, melted butter and milk.

Step 4. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon until combined.

Step 5. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into muffin pan. Place more chocolate chips on the tops.

Step 6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and enjoy! (… with warm maple syrup if desired.)
A complete plate. Delicious.
