“Berry Good Mini Breakfast Bakes”

1 and 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of salt
5 eggs
6 slices bread
4 ounces cream cheese
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup fresh blueberries
Optional topping: syrup

glaze: 2 tablespoons cream cheese/1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar/1 teaspoon lemon juice/1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

I’ve already greased the muffin tin. We’ll need to layer our bread in first. I’ve got six slices of sandwich bread that I’ve cut into bite size pieces and divided among the individual cups.

Now I’m going to take a mixing bowl and beat together a half cup of flour with 1 and 1/4 cup of milk and five eggs. We’ll stir in a teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a dash of salt and continue beating this until it’s smooth.

Next, we’ll take four ounces of cream cheese and cube it evenly over the individual cups. Then we’ll divide our egg and milk mixture over the bread and cream cheese and top with blueberries and chopped nuts.

Last step: We’ll make a cream cheese drizzle by combining a half cup of confectioners’ sugar with two tablespoons of room temperature cream cheese. Stir in a teaspoon of lemon juice and a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract and drizzle it over the individuals servings! (You can also top with syrup but I don’t think it’s necessary!) Cover it and slip it in the fridge for an hour or so. Or, you can prepare it the night before and have it read for the following morning. We’ll bake it at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until it’s a pretty golden brown.

Enjoy my Berry Good Mini Breakfast Bakes, y’all! It’s good eating from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours~

Hugs, Shellie


Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Veggie Bundles with Bacon

Hello folks and welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen! With the newsletter coming out the weekend after Thanksgiving, I decided to post my Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Veggie Bundles with Bacon instead of a holiday dish this week.  If you like shish kabobs, you’ll love today’s recipe.  It’s my delicious spin on shish kabobs and you don’t have to fire up the grill in these cool temps!

“Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Veggie Bundles with Bacon!”

1 pork tenderloin
1 pound bacon
1 white onion, sliced into thin circles
1 green pepper, sliced into thin circles
1 yellow pepper, sliced into thin circles
1 red pepper, sliced into thin circles
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic

I’ve been busy preparing our veggies. That would be an onion, a green pepper, a yellow pepper and a red pepper, sliced into thin circles.  I’ve also prepared our pork tenderloin by slicing it into one inch thick slices.

Now, we’ll take two pieces of bacon, criss-cross ‘em and set a slice of pork tenderloin in the middle. We’ll top the tenderloin servings with slices of onion, and a piece of each brightly colored pepper.

I’ve stirred together a marinade using 2 tablespoons each of olive oil, soy sauce, and apple cider vinegar. I seasoned it with salt, pepper, and a teaspoon of minced garlic. We’ll marinate our pork and bacon bundles in a closed bag for several hours in the fridge, carefully turning them over halfway through before baking them in a 350 degree oven until the pork is done. It’ll take approximately 45 minutes to an hour.

Enjoy my Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Veggie Bundles with Bacon y’all. They’re good eating from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours!

Shellie’s All Fired Up Cheese Krispies

Hello folks, and welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen! We’re making my All Fired Up Cheese Krispies today. WHOOP! WHOOP!

“All Fired Up Cheese Krispies”

1 cup butter
1/2 pound sharp cheddar cheese grated
2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of salt
Dash of red pepper
Dash of Panola hot sauce
2 cups Rice Krispies

We’ll get started by mixing a cup of softened butter with a half pound of grated sharp cheddar cheese and 2 cups of self-rising flour before adding in a teaspoon of garlic powder and a dash of salt and pepper. And then, because these are my fired up cheese krispies, we’ll add a nice big dash of Panola hot sauce.

Now, we’ll stir in two cups of rice krispies. We’ll take large tablespoons of our mixture, roll ‘em in a ball and then flatten ‘em on an ungreased cookie sheet. I like to take a fork and make a criss-cross design in the top! We’ll bake these about fifteen minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Folks, these keep really well in a cookie tin. Be the hostess with the mostest and share ‘em with your drop in guests along with a hot cup of coffee! They’re my All Fired Up Cheese Krispies and they’re good eating from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours~  HEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEE! (Yeah, I’m all fired up *grin*)
