Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes ~ 31 Days of Breakfast Recipes

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes are DELISH. They are probably one of my favorite pancakes, as I just love how the blueberries ‘melt and burst’ and the purple sweetness runs into the pancakes. MMMmmmm.

The batter for these pancakes is thickened up just a smidge by some oatmeal and they pancakes cook up perfectly!

Also, have you ever thought to freeze extra pancakes in a bread bag from loaf of sandwich bread? It’s the perfect size for 3-4″ pancakes. Make an extra batch of pancakes, let them cool completely (to reduce freezer burn), then stack them up and slip them into a bread bag! Easy, peasy…and extra resourceful!

Hope that little tip helps you, now onto the recipe…

Amish Baked Oatmeal ~ New 31 Days of Breakfasts Recipe!

Amish Baked Oatmeal Recipe | 5DollarDinners.com

Yes, I realize this is the gazillionth baked oatmeal recipe that I’ve shared this month as part of the 31 Days of Breakfasts series. AND…I have another one to share on the Tuesday! At the rate we’re going with baked oatmeal, I might be able to apply for a world record…”Food blog with most # of baked oatmeal recipes” – lol! Surely that’s a valid category! Ok, so….I’m getting a little off track here…

If you’ve never had baked oatmeal my friend, you really need to try it. It’s part-cake, part-oatmeal. It’s more cake that oatmeal, and it’s not overly sweet (usually!). It’s nothing like oatmeal if you don’t like the consistency of oatmeal. I always add a little flour to mine to make it more cake-like. It slices and serves like cake. And does a fantastic job of soaking up any milk or cream that you pour into the bowl with it.

This Amish Baked Oatmeal doesn’t have any flour in it, so it will be a bit more crumbly than my regular baked oatmeals. You can totally serve it on a plate. (Like pictured above.) And you can serve it in a bowl, mash it up and pour milk or yogurt over the top. And of course, you can make it a ‘one-dish breakfast’ by adding some berries or sliced fruit on top!

YUMMERZ!

P.S. You can totally use certified GF oats to make this GF too!

Here’s to happier, healthier and tastier mornings! *clinking orange juice glasses*

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla and brown sugar. Add the baking powder, cinnamon, salt and both types of oats. (Note: If you want to use all of one type of oat, that’s totally fine! I just like to mix mine up with this recipe and when making granolas!) Pour in the milk and oil and whisk well. Batter will be slightly ‘loose.’ Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean in the middle.

Easy Raspberry Turnovers ~ New Recipe 31 Days of Breakfasts

Easy Raspberry Turnovers | 5DollarDinners.com

A turnover has never tasted so fresh!

I love these flaky, sweet treats…but sometimes you take a bit and the goo slips out, making a mess. Welp, there is an easy way around that…make them with fresh raspberries!

Wrap those fresh raspberries into some frozen puff pastry. Bake and drizzle with a touch of sweetness.

Simply delicious!!!

Note: There is a print link embedded within this post, please visit this post to print it.

Easy Raspberry Turnovers

Yield – 9 servings

Preparation Time – 20 minutes

Cooking Time – 20 minutes

Pastry Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 27 raspberries – about 6 ounces (you can use frozen that is brought to almost room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Glaze Ingredients

  • 7 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or baking mat. I LOVE Silpat Mats for baking!
  • Defrost the dough on the counter for about 20 minutes. Dough will still be very cold and stiff.
  • Break or cut the dough on the two folds. Now cut each of the three rectangles into three equal pieces. In the end, you’ll have 9 blocks of dough.
  • Place 3 raspberries in the center of each dough section.

  • Fold the dough over to form a triangle on each one. Press the edges together with a fork to seal.
  • Use a pastry brush to gently coat the tops with melted butter.
  • Place on lined pan at least 1 inch apart. Bake the turnovers on 400 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes until puffed and lightly browned.
  • While the pastries are baking, combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Add a little water to thin until it’s the desired consistency.
  • Remove the pastries from the oven when they are done and puffed and spoon glaze over the top for a sweet finish!

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza ~ New 31 Days of Breakfasts Recipe!

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza Recipe | 5DollarDinners.com

Here’s a fun new twist on breakfast pizza crust my friend!

It’s super simple…hashbrown potatoes, some olive oil (or melted butter) and salt and pepper.

Bake the ‘crust.’

Add the toppings.

Wow your family with a few new twist on pizza night and/or ‘brinner.’

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza _-2

I used my pizza baking stone to make the crust. A rectangular or circular pizza pan will work too.

Drop the ‘dough’ onto the pan…

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza _-3

And spread into a thin-ish later, with as few gaps as possible in the middle.

“Pre-bake.”

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza _-4

Then add toppings.

Whatever you like in an omelet, on a breakfast pizza, or on a regular pizza will totally work here.

I kept it simple with eggs, bacon and cheese. Because that’s what I had on hand. (Lots of shredded cheese leftover from the 85 Breakfasts & Snacks for $150 meal plan!)

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza _-5

Bake again.

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza _-6

And then let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Pizza cutter works perfectly. Use a spatula to pick up the slices.

(My slices stayed together, without issue. But I could see that if you didn’t get the ‘crust’ right without any gaps, it could be hard to serve as a slice.

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza _

The edges are perfectly crispy, with a softer crust in the middle.

This stuff is seriously delicious!

Makes the same size as a 14″ pizza, but the crust is thin. This filled me up, but if you want a thicker crust, you could double up on the hashbrown potatoes, or serve a heftier side dish!

Savings tips: Grab the hashbrown potatoes when they are on sale and stock the freezer. Every once in a while, I’ll see a coupon for frozen potatoes too. I’ve had these hashbrown potatoes stashed for a few months from a freezer sale at Sprouts!

Also, shredded cheese and bacon also freeze well, so stock up on those when on sale…and you’ll just need eggs to make this meal!

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza

Inspired by Taste of Home

Yield – 4 to 6 servings

Preparation Time – 20 minutes

Cooking Time – 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 16 oz. bag frozen hashbrowns, defrosted
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (or melted butter)
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder, salt, pepper each
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fresh fruit, as side dish

Directions

    • Preheat oven to 350.
    • Cook the bacon in the oven. (Or a skillet, or the microwave. Baked bacon tastes best, IMO.)

    • Meanwhile scrambled the eggs, then drain & crumble the bacon.
    • After the crust has pre-baked, add the scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon and shredded cheese on top. (Feel free to add other toppings…bell peppers, ground sausage, mushrooms, etc.)
    • Return to the oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes.
    • Serve Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza with fresh fruit.
    

Whole Wheat Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins ~ 31 Days of Breakfast Recipes

Whole Wheat Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins | 5DollarDinners.com

Whole wheat, sneaking in the veggies, and a touch of sweetness from the mini chocolate chips? Yes, please!

Confession: I often think that whole wheat goodies taste like cardboard, or they are too dense, or dry. But not these muffins! They are super light and moist, all thanks to the shreds of zucchini that ‘hide’ inside the muffins. Add a bit of sweet from the chocolate and you’ve got my ideal muffin sitting in your hand!

You can make these in square muffin tins, regular muffin tins, mini loaves and mini muffins! I have one of each of these pans in my baking tray cabinet and it’s always fun to mix up the way we make muffins! (Seriously, having a little extra variety in your kitchen and in your muffins just keeps things fun!)

These just might be your new favorite muffins!
