Tipsy Iced Coffee

I hope you're enjoying #BrunchWeek so far, I know I am! I am a huge fan of iced coffee, I drink it pretty much year round.  I didn't think there would be a way to improve on it, but then I found this Tipsy Iced Coffee on the Taste of Home site.

First you start off with your favorite brand and flavor of coffee.  I went with Door County Coffee & Tea Co's Highlander Grogg.  I brewed four cups and then split it between two containers.

Since the coffee has notes of caramel and Irish Cream, Baileys was my first choice for alcohol and I added it to one. 

My other go-to liqueur is Kahlua, so I added that to the second one. I popped them both in the freezer, got sidetracked and completely forgot about them til the next day.

I was able to use a metal spatula and chip it into pieces.  This recipe is called iced coffee, but it's really more of a granita.  To-may-to, to-mah-to, it's delicious no matter what you call it.

I used an ice cream scoop to load it into ball jars.  You can do all of one kind or mix them both together.

I'd planned on making the whipped cream from scratch but it was just a crazy week and I had canned real dairy whipped cream so I went with it.  I initially popped straws into them but ended up eating it with a spoon.

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!

Double Layer Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Back in the day I used to bake from home for extra money.  This was one of the most popular items.  Cake mix sizes have changed and if you're using the 15.75 ounce ones bake them in 8" pans. If you want to use the 9" rounds, you can also use this cake mix upsizer to make up the difference between the old and new cake mix sizes.  If the layers are too thin, you'll never be able to flip and stack them without a mess. Be sure to keep track of which pan has the pineapple rings and cherries in it and which doesn't so that you can easily turn them out onto the plate in the right order.    Double Layer Pineapple Upside Down Cake Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 10 ounce jar maraschino cherries, drained 1/2 stick butter 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 8 ounce can pineapple slices 8 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice 1 package yellow cake mix (15.75 ounces) Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
