Weekend Breakfasts

We have a very important rule in our house. No oatmeal or cereal on the weekends. It would just take all the spice out of life. Instead, we alternate between these two recipes. Bacon is usually also involved.

Blueberry Muffins

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups.
2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs until beaten. Gradually add sugar. Continue whisking while slowly adding oil. Stir in vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flours and baking soda.
4. Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture alternately with sour cream. Gently fold in blueberries.
5. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake for twenty minutes.

  1. YUMMY! save some bacon for me!

  2. I like that rule too. However, I'll admit. I fall short frequently.


You are awesome.
