Migas with Black Beans & Tomatoes

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 29, 2013

Not long ago, I had lunch with some friends in Austin at Torchey’s Tacos. (If you’re in Austin, Houston or Dallas, you must give these guys a try. And I might start a petition that they get a truck set up in San Antonio asap.) Ever since, all I can think about making for breakfast is […]

Pancakes with Peach Syrup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 19, 2013

Have you ever made your own pancake syrup? If not, I highly recommend it…and you could start with this one. (But be warned, you may never go back to the bottled kind.) Ever since my little sugar-free stint in August of 2011 (or was it 2012?), I’ve made it a point to squeeze harder in […]

Sausage and Mushroom Brinner Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 17, 2013

Some would argue that breakfast tacos need eggs. I would argue that they aren’t a requirement, but certainly a fixture ingredient. But we’re not talking about breakfast tacos…we’re talking “brinner tacos” tonight! Soft tacos that aren’t traditional tacos because they use breakfast sausage, mushrooms and some veggies…sizzled to perfection, then garnished and rolled for consumption. […]

Protein Rich Orange Berry Smoothie

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 12, 2013

I’m all about being genuine. And transparent. And honest. So I’m gonna confess that I was really nervous to try this smoothie. Which is ironic really. Follow me for a minute… I love making cookies. I love sneaking bites of raw cookie dough. Spoonfuls, really, since I’m being honest. Raw cookie dough contains raw eggs. […]

German Apple Pancakes

by Jenn K on May 16, 2013

This is a great, inexpensive breakfast that can also double as a lovely dessert. It is super easy, looks very impressive, takes only a few hands-on minutes (way less than flipping pancakes). If I am making this for breakfast, then I always make sure to serve a piece of cheese or other protein before or […]

Sweet Potato Zucchini Frittata

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 15, 2013

I like frittatas. My family likes frittatas. But for different reasons. I like frittatas because they are the breakfast version of stone soup. And I like them because I’ve never tried one that I didn’t like. Pretty much any veggie and/or veggie combination works in a frittata, and this one proves that point. Spinach, mushrooms, […]

Leftover Hash Brown Bake

by Dana S on April 16, 2013

I made hash browns with eggs for a special Saturday morning breakfast only to discover that my kids don’t like hash browns. What to do with these leftover potatoes? I quickly searched the Internet and found a recipe idea using ingredients that I already had in the fridge. I made a few adjustments and it was perfect! […]

How to Make an Egg Tortilla

by Jenn K on April 2, 2013

Egg Tortillas make a fantastic alternative to tortillas in the traditional breakfast taco. You start out cooking them like an omelet…except you use way less egg in the skillet so that they are thin enough to ‘roll’ and thick enough to hold cheese and other ingredients inside. Once you’ve made these egg tortillas, try them […]

As I was getting ready to make my breakfast casserole, I suddenly had the impulse to make it healthier by adding vegetables. I asked my kids what vegetable they thought I should add and my oldest son replied “BACON!” My son’s transcripts from college indicate that he is quite bright, so I am pretty sure […]
