Maple Apple Baked Oatmeal

It's Maple Month here in New Hampshire, and we've already hit the sugar shack to stock up on our syrup and other goodies for the year.   I had some apples leftover from the Upside Down Apple Pie I made, so when I searched the Taste of Home site, I knew this recipe would be perfect. Recently I've been eating a lot of oatmeal, and I've been searching for ways to switch it up.

Despite a huge baking dish collection, I do not own an 11x7. I went out to buy one, and somehow came home with another 13x9.  To make it work, I increased the amount of oats to 3 1/2 cups. I substituted almond milk for the fat-free milk.  I used Granny Smith apples, and since "chopped" is rather vague, I cut mine into about quarter inch dice.  I wanted to make sure they cooked all the way through.   The directions also don't specify whether to peel it or not, I peeled mine.

This was delicious the first day, and it also reheated well. I definitely will be making this again with different fruits. Pears or blueberries will be amazing, or even a combination of rhubarb and strawberries.  If you don't want to use the sunflower seeds or pepitas, toasted walnuts would be great too.

Thank you again to Christie for hosting Easter Week, and to all the other #FestiveFoodies for sharing their #EasterRecipes, I hope you've enjoyed them as much as I have! I think I've got my menu figured out now, there were so many great ideas to inspire me.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
