Hello folks and welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen! I’ve got a great recipe for you to have on hand for your overnight guests this Christmas. Stir up my Berry Good Mini Breakfast Bakes and you’ll be on Santa’s good list for sure!
“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
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~
