Golden Milk Granola

We have a serious thing for golden milk — the traditional Indian beverage that has its roots in Ayurveda and is most traditionally known as haldi ka doodh. In its simplest form, it’s a combination of warmed milk and ground turmeric, which may sound like an interesting combination, but once you try it, you just get it. It’s not only comforting but also incredibly anti-inflammatory and delicious. This granola is an homage to golden milk.

Even better, the spices in the potatoes mimic breakfast sausage (hello, fennel!) so the entire vibe is extremely hearty and satisfying. Here’s how to make it for yourself!

What’s in a good breakfast skillet recipe?

The breakfast skillet is a pretty loose concept: it could include just about anything! This one we customized to taste hearty and savory like you’d expect from a restaurant, but make it easy enough to make at home. Many breakfast skillet recipes include breakfast sausage, but since we eat mostly vegetarian around here we went the meatless route. Here’s what’s in this tasty skillet:

  • Hash browns: These form the base; we like using frozen (see below)
  • Eggs: Cook them until just set and the yolks are runny
  • Cheese: Cheddar or feel free to customize: smoked mozzarella or gouda would be fantastic
  • Spices: Chili powder, garlic, cumin, and fennel seeds
  • Green onion: For a little savory zip and green
  • Salsa: It’s not required, but it makes a great garnish
Breakfast skillet

Use frozen hash browns for a quick and easy recipe

When we make a breakfast skillet, we’re usually in need of speed. So the primary path for this breakfast skillet is frozen hash browns! There’s nothing processed about frozen hash browns: they’re simply potatoes! However, some purchased hash browns can include extra flours or fillers. Check the package ingredients to make sure!

Alternate method: use potatoes!

Want to use potatoes instead? We’ve got you! You can use our method for Homemade Hash Browns instead: and it only adds a few extra minutes! Start with 2 medium russet potatoes (1 pound). Then you’ll need to soak the potatoes for just 2 minutes; here’s what to do:

  • Grate the potatoes: Wash the potatoes, leaving the skins on. Use the large side of a box grater or a food processor large grating blade to grate the potatoes.
  • Soak the potatoes for 2 minutes: Place the grated potatoes into a large bowl and fill it with cold water. Tip the bowl to drain off starchy water, then fill it again. Stir the potatoes to release starches soak them for 2 minutes. 
  • Dry the potatoes: Drain the grated potatoes and squeeze out any excess water. Transfer them to a clean, dry towel. Wring the potatoes in the towel to remove as much liquid as possible. Then cook starting at Step 1 of the recipe below!
Breakfast skillet recipe

Make it a cast iron breakfast skillet!

What type of pan to cook this breakfast skillet? Well, you can use any pan you like: but here are a few tips:

  • Cast iron breakfast skillet: If you have it, use a very large cast iron skillet is best! It heats well and it looks simply stunning. We used a 12-inch cast iron skillet, but you can make it work in a 10-inch as well.
  • Any large, oven-proof skillet: Otherwise, any large, heavy skillet will do! Try for 10 to 12 inches, so the hash browns have enough space to brown. Cooking in a small skillet steams the potatoes and they won’t get as

What else to serve with it

This breakfast skillet is so hearty, you don’t need to serve much else alongside. But if you’re cooking up a fancy brunch or breakfast for dinner (brinner!), here are some great options:

Description

This breakfast skillet recipe is a hearty way to start the day! Cook up cheesy eggs and potatoes in a cast iron skillet or any large pan.


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 5 cups (1 pound) frozen shredded hash browns (or 2 medium russet potatoes — see below*)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus a sprinkle more
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 eggs
  • For the garnish: Salsa, fresh cilantro (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook the hash browns: Heat the olive oil in a large oven-proof or cast iron skillet and add the hash browns, flipping occasionally until browned. At 6 minutes, add the chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, fennel seeds, and kosher salt. Cook another about 6 minutes until browned, continuing to flip so they don’t stick. 
  2. Add the cheese and eggs: Reduce the heat to low. Add the green onions (reserving a handful for the garnish) and cheese and mix it in. Make divots for the eggs (all the way down to the bare pan) and add 1/4 tablespoon butter into each well. Crack 1 egg into each well, and top each with a pinch of kosher salt. Add a sprinkle of additional shredded cheese on top. 
  3. Cook the eggs on the stovetop: Increase the heat to medium low and cook for 3 minutes on the stove. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler.
  4. Finish in the broiler: Transfer the skillet to the broiler and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until the whites of the eggs are set.
  5. Serve: Garnish with salsa, the reserved green onions, and fresh cilantro. Serve warm. 

Notes

*To use russet potatoes, use our Homemade Hash Browns method: Wash the potatoes, leaving the skins on. Use the large side of a box grater or a food processor large grating blade to grate the potatoes. Place the grated potatoes into a large bowl and fill it with cold water. Tip the bowl to drain off starchy water, then fill it again. Stir the potatoes to release starches soak them for 2 minutes. Drain the grated potatoes and squeeze out any excess water. Transfer them to a clean, dry towel. Wring the potatoes in the towel to remove as much liquid as possible. Then cook starting at Step 1 of this recipe.

Strawberry muffins

Here’s a recipe that turned out even more delicious than we imagined…these insanely tasty Strawberry Muffins! Imagine: a muffin with a tender crumb: just sweet enough and delightfully moist. Then top that with a strawberry cream cheese swirl, that coats everything in sweet savory richness. Our 4 year old Larson had the idea of making strawberry muffins (genius!), so we turned our favorite pumpkin muffin into a berry based one. Turns out, this one is even better than the original!

What’s great about these strawberry muffins

Some strawberry muffins have little chunks of strawberries in the batter, much like you would a blueberry muffin. But when we tried that type of strawberry muffin, the bits of berry made the batter soggy. Here’s what makes this strawberry muffin great:

  • The strawberries are incorporated in a cream cheese swirl. This way, the berries incorporate into a creamy topping, leaving the bottom portion of the muffin perfectly moist. Man, is it delicious!
  • The muffins are just sweet enough. Many muffins are glorified cupcakes: these are just sweet enough to be aptly called a muffin.
  • They’re moist from applesauce! Applesauce makes a perfectly moist cake portion of the muffin, without it being too buttery or oily.

How to make and swirl the cream cheese topping

These strawberry muffins are pretty straightforward: the only part that needs a little more explanation is the cream cheese swirl. Here’s what to know about this part of the recipe:

  • Dice the strawberries into small pieces. This helps the strawberries to integrate into the cream cheese — it will turn pink but still have strawberry chunks (this is intended!).
  • Place dollops of cream cheese on top of the muffin batter. Use a heaping 1 tablespoon.
  • Use a toothpick to swirl and push the cheese into the batter. Swirl it in so that it incorporates into the top portion of the muffin batter.
Strawberry muffins

Storage info for strawberry muffins

Because there’s cream cheese on top, you’ll want to store these strawberry muffins in the refrigerator instead of at room temperature like other muffins. Here are a few pointers:

  • The muffins are the best the day of making. Wait after baking until they’re about room temperature, then devour. They taste incredible the day of.
  • Refrigerate for 5 days. Pop them into the fridge for storage. Remember to let them warm back to room temp for a minute or two before you enjoy them.
  • Do not freeze. The cream cheese topping doesn’t hold up well in the freezer, so we don’t recommend freezing here.

When to serve them!

These strawberry muffins are great for when you have a bunch of strawberries you don’t know what to do with. They’re absolutely perfect for entertaining, too! Here are a few ideas for how to pair them:

  • Author: Sonja Overhiser
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12 muffins
  • Diet: Vegetarian

Description

Everyone will want seconds of this delicious strawberry muffins recipe! It’s got a tender fluffy crumb and and a cream cheese swirl topping. 


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled Old Fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup diced strawberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add 12 muffin cups to a standard muffin tin.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, rolled oats, brown sugar and cinnamon with the baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt.
  3. In another bowl, combine the applesauce, neutral oil, and vanilla extract. Wait to add it to the dries until you’ve made the cream cheese topping. 
  4. Dice the strawberries into small pieces. Use a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or electric hand mixer to combine the cream cheese, sugar, and strawberries: beat them on medium speed until fully combined (the cheese will turn pink but still have chunks of strawberries). 
  5. Mix the wet ingredients (applesauce, oil and vanilla) into the bowl with the dry ingredients (flour, oats, etc.) and stir until a smooth batter forms.
  6. Divide the batter evenly into the 12 muffin cups. Dollop a mounded tablespoon of strawberry cream cheese onto the center of each muffin. Then use a toothpick to swirl the cream cheese until it is smoothed onto the top and partially worked into the batter (see the photos).
  7. Bake for about 25 to 28 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the muffin portion. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove the muffins and place them on a cooling rack. Cool 1 hour until room temperature. Enjoy or refrigerate up to 1 week (these muffins do not freeze well).

scone dough with sun dried tomatoes

Scones were one of the first recipes I shared on the blog waaaay back in the day. You may remember! Cinnamon chip scones are amazing. The recipe came from a friend and has always been one of my favorite baked goods to make – they are foolproof! She used to bring them in to work and everyone would fight over the last one. So delicious.

I’ve used that scone recipe to make many different varieties before – including savory versions. You can truly add anything you want to this scone dough and it will turn out wonderfully. Chocolate chips, dried fruit, cheese, roasted red peppers? Get to it!

Just maybe not all at once…

That’s why I’m so, so excited to tell you about these sun dried tomato scones! They are an at-home version of the sun dried tomato scone at de fer and have crunchy raw sugar baked into the bottom and top for texture and sweetness.

Seriously, the perfect combo of savory and sweet.

baked sun dried tomato scone

I adore sun dried tomatoes and have thrown them in quite a few recipes this last year. They are sweet and tart and have a bit of chew – a texture lover’s dream. And I love how they take regular old recipes up a notch! 

My preference is to use the sun dried tomatoes in olive oil. I drain them and pat them completely dry, then dice them up. Into the dough they go! 

The scones bake on a sheet covered in coarse sugar, so they bottoms get caramelized and sweet and crunchy! I sprinkle some coarse sugar on top too, which gets equally as crunchy and wonderful.

The end result is a perfect fluffy savory scone – that isn’t dry whatsoever – with hints of sweetness all around. It’s FABULOUS.  (more…)

How long to bake eggs?

The exact timing for baked eggs varies based on a few variables: the exact heat of the oven, the thickness of the baking dish, and how runny you’d like the yolk.

  • It takes about 12 to 15 minutes to cook eggs in a ramekin to where the yolk is runny and the white is set. The style is closest to sunny side up eggs.
  • Cook longer to fully cook the yolk. This would be closer to over hard eggs.
  • Thicker baking dishes cause the timing to be slightly longer.
  • Start checking at 12 minutes: look at the whites around the yolk and make sure they are just set.

Baked egg toppings

Here’s the fun part: adding toppings to your baked eggs! This can be as complicated or simple as you like. Our favorite is just Parmesan and fresh herbs, which takes no time at all. Here are some ideas to get your wheels turning:

Oven baked eggs are a simple way to make a special breakfast! Bake them in small dishes then serve with a variety of toppings. Bon appetit!


Ingredients

For each serving

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter (or substitute neutral oil for dairy free)
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper

Topping ideas:

  • Shredded Parmesan cheese, fresh thyme sprigs

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. While the oven preheats, add 1/2 tablespoon butter to each small baking dish or ramekin. Add to the oven until it melts (about 1 minute), then use a brush to spread it around the inside of the dish.
  3. Crack the eggs into a small bowl, then slide 2 into each dish. Sprinkle each with 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.

(If desired, you can cook longer to get a fully cooked yolk.)
  4. Sprinkle with toppings and serve. Keep in mind the baking dishes are hot, so place them on a separate plate for serving.
