Florida Orange-Cinnamon French Toast + Free Eggs When You Buy 100% Florida OJ Coupon Reminder

Florida Orange-Cinnamon French Toast
Who doesn’t love French Toast? My guys would happily eat it every day if I made it for them. I’ll admit, I don’t mind making it for them…it’s quick, easy and delicious.

I thought I’d share a recipe that takes French Toast to a whole other level – Florida Orange-Cinnamon French Toast. A little cinnamon, some raisins and 100% Florida Orange Juice cooks up to become the most amazing dipping sauce. The best part is that this dish is comes together very quickly so it’s perfect for any morning of the week.

If you want to whip this up, you can do so at a great price thanks to the big coupon that I have been telling you about. Be sure to grab your coupon for FREE eggs when you buy 100% Florida Orange Juice.

Use a few of those free eggs to whip up this French Toast recipe, and the rest are sure to come in handy with Thanksgiving just a few days away. It’s just not Thanksgiving at my house without a big batch of deviled eggs! Whether you use them for breakfast or your other holiday meals, the protein in eggs provides steady and sustained energy. And of course, free is my favorite price!

After you make this recipe, you’ll still have plenty of OJ for your breakfast for the rest of the week. It’s the perfect way to start the morning. Besides being delicious, one 8-ounce serving of orange juice is fat-free and, at 110 calories per 8-ounce glass, has fewer calories than some other commonly consumed 100% fruit juices.

Spinach Cheese Swirls Recipe – Great Deals For Your Holiday Gatherings With The Pepperidge Farm Publix Coupon

Spinach Cheese Swirls

I am in holiday mode right now. I mentioned that I have two Thanksgiving dinners over the next two weeks. This week I will be hosting my family so I am finalizing my menu. In addition to the standard fixings, I also have a list of appetizers that I will put out so folks have something to nibble on while I work on dinner.

One of my all time favorite things to cook with is Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. It is super easy to work with and everything I have ever made with it has been delicious! One of my all time favorite things to make are puff pastry swirls. You can add anything you like to the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. Then it’s just a matter of rolling it, cutting it and baking it for a simple and tasty appetizer (or snack) that your guests will love.

I thought I’d share a recipe for Spinach Cheese Swirls. This one has no meat, so it’s perfect if you have family members who are vegetarians. Of course if you have meat lovers, a little bit of bacon makes these just delicious.

Serves: 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • ½ cup shredded Muenster cheese or mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 green onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ½ pkg. of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • 1 pkg. (about 10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Stir the Muenster cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion and garlic powder in a medium bowl.
  3. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Brush the pastry sheet with the egg mixture. Top with the cheese mixture and spinach. Starting at a short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into about 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices, cut-side down, onto 2 baking sheets. Brush the slices with the egg mixture.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks for 10 minutes.
  5. For best results, make sure to remove as much liquid as you can from the spinach before adding it to the pastry. If it's too wet, it may make the pastry soggy.
  6. For Pesto Swirls, omit all ingredients but the flour and the puff pastry. Unfold the pastry sheet as directed above. Spread ½ of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened, on the pastry sheet to within ½ inch of the edge. Top with 3 tablespoons pesto sauce and sprinkle with ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts. Brush the edge of the pastry sheet with water. Roll up the pastry and proceed as directed above.
  7. For Ham & Broccoli Swirls, omit the spinach, cheeses, onion and garlic powder. Unfold the pastry sheet and brush with the egg mixture as directed above. Spread ½ of an 8-ounce container whipped cream cheese with chives on the pastry sheet. Top with 1 cup frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well drained and 1 cup finely chopped cooked ham. Proceed as directed above.
  8. For a flavor twist, try a different cheese. Any shredded cheese will work in this recipe.

Florida Orange Crepes with Fruit Filling

Do you guys need a delicious breakfast/brunch option? Check out this recipe for Florida Orange Crepes.

I love to do crepes for Thanksgiving breakfast. These fruit filled crepes are delicious and light – the perfect breakfast so you’ll have plenty of room for all those Thanksgiving goodies later in the day.

Crepes are so good and they really are quite easy to make. The hardest part is getting the technique down. All you have to remember is to swirl the pan to let the batter set up, then just it’s just a few minutes to a golden crepe. I usually get the crepes going while I cut up the fruit. This is definitely a light and better-for-you breakfast that your whole family will love.

What’s great is that you can whip this recipe up at a great price thanks to the big coupon for FREE eggs when you buy 100% Florida Orange Juice.

I know you guys can use those eggs with Thanksgiving just a week away. I have plans for deviled eggs, dressing, baked mac & cheese and a couple of pies…plus the crepes that I will make for breakfast. I’ll likely go through a dozen eggs in one day! The protein in eggs provides steady and sustained energy that starts your day off right. I’ll need the energy for all that cooking!

These crepes have a great taste as they are made with 100% Florida Orange Juice. While Florida Orange Juice is the perfect breakfast beverage, it’s also perfect in so many different recipes. Besides being delicious, it’s also a better-for-you option. Orange juice is fat-free and only 110 calories per 8-ounce glass.

Grab your coupon and save some of your OJ and a few eggs to whip up this recipe. Once you try these, I think you’ll add them to your recipe rotation and do crepes quite often!

Spaghetti & Meatball Cups Recipe

Spaghetti & Meatball Cups

Today I thought I’d share one of my boys’ favorite recipes – Spaghetti & Meatball Cups. This is really just an mini version of my Spaghetti Pie. It’s more fun that your standard spaghetti and meatballs and really doesn’t take too much more effort.

My boys actually prefer this one with turkey meatballs. I think the texture works better with the creamy ricotta and pasta. Whenever I make meatballs, I try to make a double batch just for recipes like these. If you have your meatballs ready this recipe comes together in no time flat.

Another thing I love about this recipe is that it’s a great way to use up leftover pasta. So next time you want to break away from your boring spaghetti, try this one out.

This recipe is part of the Publix Menu Plan 10/29. Here are the other recipes that I shared –

Reminder Farmland Bacon Coupon + Make My Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese & Apple Stuffed Turkey Meatballs

Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese & Apple Stuffed Turkey Meatballs
I have mentioned to you guys before how much my guys love meatballs. If I were to ask my husband what he wants for dinner, I’d bet you that one of the three foods he’d mention would include meatballs of some sort! Now, I like meatballs too, but I get bored of making the same things all of the time. I am always trying to shake things up a bit and come up with different variations of the foods that my guys love.

My recipe for Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese & Apple Stuffed Turkey Meatballs came about from my need to change up dinner. I looked in my fridge and saw some ground turkey and a package of Farmland Bacon, and started thinking about how to put those two together for a meal that everyone would like. I dug around a bit more and found some goat cheese. The goat cheese made me start thinking about apples and all of the sudden I had an image of the most delectable meatballs ever.

I had the meatballs made and in the oven in just minutes. Let me just tell you that these babies did NOT disappoint! The entire batch was wiped out…no leftovers whatsoever! I typically avoid doing meatballs with ground turkey as they can sometimes be a bit dry and lacking in the flavor department. Not the case with this batch. The Farmland Bacon gave the meatballs the best flavor and they were so moist and absolutely delicious. The zing of the goat cheese paired with the sweetness of the diced apple took them over the top.

I threw together a batch of my sweet & sour sauce for dipping, made a big salad, and dinner was just perfect. I think for the next batch, I may come up with some kind of honey mustard/apple dipping sauce. Either way, I will definitely make these again!

Right now you can whip up my Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese & Apple Stuffed Turkey Meatballs (or any of my other recipes that use bacon) at a great price thanks to the new Farmland bacon coupon over on the Publix Digital Coupon page. Head over and load your coupon and save a buck on your favorite Farmland bacon.

Farmland bacon is slow smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor. For decades, they’ve taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique – a difference you’ll taste in every delicious bite. I know you will love it and thanks to the coupon…so will your wallet! Grab your coupon and try my recipe. Come back and let me know what you think!

Serves: 6 (recipe yields approx 18 meatballs)
Ingredients
  • 1 package Farmland Applewood Classic Cut Bacon
  • 20 oz package ground turkey breast
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 3 oz goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 - 2 apples, finely diced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375º F.
  2. Combine the ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg whites, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix until combined.
  3. Create rounded meatballs about ¾" in diameter.
  4. Mix the finely diced apples and goat cheese in a small bowl.
  5. Use your index finger to create a well in each meatball and stuff with about a teaspoon of the cheese/apple filling.
  6. Gently press and roll the meatball to seal in the filling.
  7. Cut each strip of Farmland Bacon into three equal pieces. Wrap each meatball with two cut pieces, by pulling and stretching the bacon to cover the meatball.
  8. Place the bacon wrapped meatballs on a cooking rack in a baking sheet.
  9. Bake in a 375º F oven for 25 - 30 minutes, until bacon is browned.
  10. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Notes
Don't use thick sliced bacon as you will need to stretch the bacon to cover the meatball. The thick cut bacon is not as easy to stretch at the classic cut bacon!

Halloween Bagel Pizzas – Quick & Easy!

Halloween Bagel Pizzas
Today is Halloween and the kids will be itching to get out and start trick-or-treating. That means dinner will need to be quick and easy. We do fun, holiday themed meals all week. These fun Halloween Bagel Pizzas are one of my boys’ favorites.

With the BOGO sale on Thomas’ Bagels this is an easy and very economical meal that will have your little monsters out ringing doorbells in no time flat.

I am not sure I’d really call these a recipe as much as creative preparation. To make the mummies, add pizza sauce and topping to your bagel. Then all you have to do is tear some mozzarella cheese sticks and arrange them to look like strips of cloth. A couple of olive slices for the eyes and then about 10 minutes in a 375 oven and you have a delicious dinner.

The pumpkin pizza is just as simple, it’s just a creatively “carved” slice of cheese. Bake it up and there’s another festive option to make meal time a little more fun!

If you want a fun dessert to go with these – try my Ghost Cupcakes. They are so much fun!

Salmon Croquettes Recipe

Salmon Croquettes

I always have a couple of cans of salmon in my pantry. It’s the perfect thing for those days that I forget to take something out of the freezer to defrost. Salmon Croquettes are so simple to throw together and they cook up super fast. Add in the fact that a can of salmon is under $3 and you have an incredibly inexpensive meal!

Money was very tight when I was growing up. Meat wasn’t on the menu every single day…it was expensive and we were poor. These babies were on the table often, so I learned to love them. Beans and canned fish were a great way to get protein without spending a lot of moolah.

I honestly don’t even measure anything when I throw these together. Last night as I was making these, I forced myself to measure so that I could share an actual recipe with you guys–tee hee. Throw in a binder with a few tasty ingredients and form patties that then cook for 8 – 10 minutes and voila…dinner.

The sauce is another thing I just whip up without measuring. My husband is the only one who eats it…you know I have that mayo aversion thing. It’s similar to a remoulade and only needs a few ingredients. Of course you can also just throw a bottle of ketchup on the table. That always seems to make my guys happy ;-)

Now you will notice that I do 10 small patties. You can do large patties and turn them into easy salmon burgers if you prefer. I make up the same recipe then form four large patties and then toss them on buns for a change of pace. Served with some sweet potato fries and there’s another quick and easy dinner in a pinch. Hey…two recipes for the price of one–tee hee!

This recipe is part of the Publix Menu Plan 10/29. Here are the other recipes that I have shared so far –
