My mom loves Pecan Pie, and when I saw these easy to make delicious looking Pecan Pie Muffins over on MB Things I Know on Facebook (who found them on Shabby Chicks), I knew I had to make them.
Christmas breakfast was a big hit, both for my guests and for me. I made a nice easy menu, and I was able to prepare most everything in advance. Since I designed it all with my mom in mind, I know she would be a happy camper. And, I was right! So, here’s the menu, and a little further on, you’ll find the recipe for those yummy Pecan Pie Muffins.
Christmas Breakfast menu:
For the main dish, I made individual baked eggs with veggies in pie crust.
I took ramekins and lined them with pie crust, then I pre-baked the pie crust. Inside the baked crust, I placed a scoop of ricotta cheese, and topped that with caramelized onions and red peppers. I cracked an egg on top of the veggies. Then, baked in a 375 degree oven until the egg was set.
These were really good and easy to make. No real recipe to follow here, just nice and easy, a scoop of this and a scoop of that.
I made individual Peaches & Cream Baked Oatmeal. You’ll find the recipe here. I left the almonds off and the almond extract out, because we have some nut allergies.
I also found that I had run out of milk in the middle of making these, so I used half whole milk and half eggnog in the recipe. It was delicious! Even mistakes can be fun! I might try it with all eggnog next year when I can find eggnog at the stores again.
Our Blueberry Breakfast Pastry was a big hit. My mom loves blueberries! I made the pastry just before the guests arrived, and stored it, covered with a cotton towel, in the fridge. I baked it just before it was time to eat. It was perfect! And so yummy!
And, of course, there were these Pecan Pie Muffins. Super easy to make, and just 5 ingredients. These would be perfect at any holiday breakfast or brunch. I’d also make them for a casual dinner and serve them for dessert. You’ll love how easy they are!
