Savory Tuesday : Easy breakfast pizzas

Now that I am free every weekend I find myself getting very creative when it comes to breakfast. Usually I would make toast ,scrambled eggs and a grilled tomato but now I am making things like eggs Benedict.

We always hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and this is very true. If you skip breakfast, chances are high that you are going to over eat on the next meal usually with unhealthy foods.

This past weekend I decided to keep it casual and make breakfast pizzas with English muffins. I know you are thinking to yourself this doesn’t sound healthy at all. Fear not, I used very little cheese and substituted Italian sausage with turkey sausage for a healthier alternative.

Ingredients 
4 English muffins
2 turkey or chicken sausage sliced
3 tbsp crushed tomato paste
2 green onions sliced
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1 small tomato diced
1 cup shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • put a thin layer of crushed tomatoes on each half of the English muffins ( I used tomatoes from a can of crushed tomatoes with basil ) 
  • Start layering each English muffin with garlic and a little of the green onion then follow with the sausage and tomato.
  • Top with another layer of green onions and finish off with a little cheese on each muffin.

  • Bake in the oven for about 10 mins or until cheese is melted and golden brown. Make sure you serve with a side of fruit for a balanced breakfast. In this case I used fresh grapefruit, orange and a cup of green tea.

Banana Bread Muffins

There are certain items that I always buy when I make my weekly trip to the grocery store,one of them is bananas.Bananas are not my favorite fruit but I find that they make a great snack in between meals,I usually put one in my bag for those times when I am craving something sweet.I always end up with too many bananas so I find the best way to use ripe bananas is to make banana bread.I have a quick and simple recipe that is almost impossible to mess up.If you have a sweet tooth, a cream cheese frosting is great.All you need is cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar.

Ingredients

11/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3  bananas mashed
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
