Are you a breakfast eater?  I am not really.  I prefer to get up and have my coffee then maybe eat an early lunch.  However, on the weekends it’s a different story.  Weekends are for big breakfasts with the family on Sunday.  Eggs, bacon, pancakes, french toast or omelets.  This Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich is the perfect balance of eggs and ham, chewy ciabatta bread and one of my favorite condiments, pesto.

The pesto is really what made this sandwich great.  I’ve been growing basil out in my back yard for a few years now so it’s pretty much a staple in our house.  Don’t have fresh basil?  I find that the store version is good too so don’t get overwhelmed with an extra step if you don’t want to.  The other good thing is that this sandwich can be made all in one pan.

This recipe is based off a sandwich I had when my husband and I took a little trip to Toledo & Cleveland last year.  While there we stayed at a beautiful hotel, the Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade.  It was a great hotel right across from all kinds of restaurants, shops, and a really cool brewery.  It was a great trip! We visited the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and my favorite, The Christmas Story House!  I also got to eat a great breakfast sandwich in the hotel restaurant, this Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich.  Now on to the food!

How to make a Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich:

Heat up 1 tsp of oil then add the onion.  Let soften for 2-3 minutes stirring so they don’t burn.

In a bowl combine the eggs and milk and whip to combine.  Now add spinach to the pan.  Cook for about a minute to let it soften.  Add the eggs on top.

Using a spatula thin out the eggs and cook by pushing the bottom up and letting the egg run under.  Cook for about 2 minutes then flip.  Now add ham to the other side of the pan.

Heat through for 2 minutes while the other side of the egg cooks.  Put ham on top of the eggs.  Take the 2 pieces of bread and spread butter on them then place face down in the open section of the pan.  Let brown for about 1 minute.

Now time to plate it.  Place 1 piece of bread browned side down.  Put stacked eggs and ham on top of it.

Add a generous amount of prepared or freshly made pesto to the other slice of bread and put on top.

And here you are….

Strawberry & Sesame Hand Pies

Flaky crust packed with sweet strawberry preserves and Simply Sesame.  Make up a batch for the busy school week. My son ate these every morning and then again as a snack after school!  Who doesn’t love a portable meal that is a hit with the kids?

These hand pies are so easy to make and use just a few ingredients.  And let me tell you what made these even easier….my new mixer that I got for Christmas! It’s so beautiful.  Since getting it I’ve done some serious baking.  Enough of the admiration let’s get baking.

strawberryhandpies_1f

Starting with the dough add the ingredients to a mixer.  Or you can mix this by hand as well~before I got my mixer I had no problem whipping up crust for my favorite homemade pizzas.  Check out my directions for a thicker crust on my White Chicken Pizza with Basil & Blackberry Sauce.  A thinner crust for this Pepper Steak Pizza. Or a the crust for a classic favorite, Chicago Deep Dish Pizza.  Either way, this crust turns out perfectly! I’m even using this same recipe to make a special treat soon for Mitten Movie Night.  When the dough has been mixed roll into a ball then onto some plastic wrap that has been lightly floured.  Put the dough into the refrigerate for 1 hour.

Once chilled it’s time to roll it out and cut into circles.  See my fancy cutter!  This was enough dough for 12 pies.  Take a spoonful of the strawberry preserves and place on one side of the dough then on top of that add the Simply Sesame (*note: Simply Sesame needs to be well stirred to make sure it’s not too runny).

Preheat the over to 375 degrees then line a pan with parchment paper.  Fold the top of the dough over then crimp the edges with a fork.  Some filling may eek out when baking that is why it’s crucial to use the parchment so you can have easy clean up.

Bake for 20 minutes.  Before the last 10 minutes is up melt a tablespoon of butter, take the pies out then brush the tops.  Put back into the over to finish.  When done please be aware not to take a giant bite right away since the filling can be H-O-T!  And here you are….

Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas #SundaySupper

Tangy, thin Swedish Pancakes are cooked up and piled high ready for the breakfast table. Make a delicious mixture of brown sugar bananas to put in the center of the pancakes then roll them up for a sweet way to start the day.

I’ve mentioned before, my Dad is a great cook.  I remember the first time he let me make Swedish Pancakes during the holidays.  Boy, was I important!  I got to mix the batter. Grease the pan. Learned how to move the pan just right to make sure the pancake is thin and crispy. 

While the recipe may have changed over time making these reminds me of how proud I was making these pancakes for the first time.  Now I might have to pass this recipe for Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas to my Dad!

Swedish Pancakes rolled up with a pile to the side and a bowl of brown sugar bananas next to it.

How to make Swedish Pancakes:

Mix all the pancake ingredients in a bowl.  It’s important to keep the bowl next to the stove with a ladle.  With a mid-sized skillet add a small dab of oil to the pan.  You can see my setup here.  Also, make sure that you have a plate to add your pancakes too.  They cook quickly!

Oil in a pan and batter for Swedish pancakes next to it.

From there you will add a ladle full of batter then spin the pan in a rotating fashion to thin it out.  Cook for 1-2 minutes.  Flip and cook around 30 seconds for the second side.

I posted a video on my Instagram a while ago on how to move the pan.

How to make Brown Sugar Bananas:

Next is the sauce, which is so easy! Chop the bananas.  Add butter to a pan and start to melt.  Add brown sugar, then bananas.  Let cook for around another minute then add the water cinnamon and nutmeg.  Take off heat, you’re done.

How to Roll Swedish Pancakes:

What I want to point out is the ‘roll’.  But I digress. I have a helpful little photo tutorial below for the ‘roll’.  Fill the center of the pancake, hook fork into the side and ‘roll’.

Swedish Pancakes ready to roll up with brown sugar bananas in the middle of them.

You know my husband doesn’t roll his Swedish Pancaked **gasp**!?!? Finish off with more sauce on top.  Do you see this deliciousness??

And here you are…..

Tips:

  • Don’t like bananas? The sauce works well with many other fruits like peaches and plums.
  • No buttermilk on hand? Using soured milk works just as well. To sour milk take 1 cup of regular milk then add 1 Tbs vinegar or apple cider vinegar and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
