Waffle Breakfast Board

Saving the Day with Danone® Products at Publix!

This post is sponsored by Danone North America. The opinions and text are all mine.

A Waffle Breakfast Board would not be complete without the signature sides of luscious fruits, yogurt, homemade granola, and jam.

Waffle Breakfast Board

My family loves a quick and easy meal, especially during the weekend, so we have been making some type of board every Saturday or Sunday.

This week we decided to create this graceful and gorgeous spread with the help of Danone. I was so enthralled by the way it turned out.

It is bright, tasty and popping with colors. There is truly something for everyone.

Danone has been a part of my family for a long time, and I continue to buy their products for myself all the time.

Their products are an amazing snack and are definitely a quick on-the-go breakfast, school, or work lunch essential.

Waffle Breakfast Board

With that being said, I’ve created many phenomenal desserts using Activia® and Two Good® yogurts, such as parfaits, making incredible salad dressing, using it in my baked goodies, and smoothies.

It is such a versatile product packed with delicious ingredients. I also picked up Stok® Cold Brew and So Delicious® Coconutmilk Creamer.

I love the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix because everyone loves an amazing deal, and Publix definitely has it.

You can purchase so many delicious products that you likely already use, so check it out. Do not miss this excellent opportunity, because it is a great one!

In addition to my Waffle Breakfast Board in the morning, ifyou genuinely love a good iced coffee and silky creamer, Publix has your back.

Stok Cold Brew Coffee

Well, I need my coffee hot every single morning, but my college son adores his coffee iced, no exceptions, with a generous amount of creamer.

Most of the time when he is home, I get him excellent Stok Black Unsweetened cold brew coffee.

As well as a complementary sweetener such as the rich andcreamy coconutmilk creamer from So Delicious.

They are both qualifying products for the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix.

Creamer from So Delicious

Nevertheless, this iced coffee and creamer naturally makean outstanding addition to our Waffle Breakfast Board!

Easy and Quick Salad Dressing

When it comes to lunch or dinner, one of my favorite multi-purpose salad dressings is this incredibly creamy dressing using Two Good plain low-fat yogurt.

I sincerely love it with romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes.

Salad with Yogurt Lemon Dressing

However, if you have some tomatoes and cucumbers, this dressing instantly makes one delicious salad. Perhaps use it to make a pasta salad.

Also, serve it on the platter with vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber, etc., you would be surprised how tasty it is.

Yogurt Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup Two Good plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Mix ingredients in one medium-size bowl. Set aside for about 15 minutes to allow all flavors to develop.

Easy Breakfast Strata

Easy Breakfast Strata

Easy Breakfast Strata

Easy Breakfast Strata reminds me of a wonderful world of casseroles.

They are not only tasty, beautiful, nor easy to make, they are so versatile as well. 

This golden deliciousness, Breakfast Strata was so simple to make and we all enjoy it very much. I make this often over the weekend.

Sometimes it’s without any bread which makes it more like crustless quiche or frittata, and sometimes I add leftover biscuits from dinner before. 

Easy Breakfast Strata

My son, who doesn’t care much for asparagus made his own version, which we all loved.

He will go to University next year, so I have been more persistence regarding him learning things around the house, in particular how to cook more complexed meals.

Don’t get me wrong, he knows how to cook basic meals, clean the house, wash and survive as a young adult, but I feel like he can always learn more.

I know many moms would agree, but I feel like crap just thinking about him leaving the nest.

Even now, a year away, it feels like part of me will be missing when he goes on his new journey.

Goodness! I am getting emotional again.

I need “kids’ going to college support group” soon haha… Seriously, how do you survive it?

Anyhow, I am watching “Eat, Pray, Love” with Julia Roberts, while eating cheese crackers, drinking my rooibos hot tea.

I am trying so hard to write something in this post other than “This dish is so delicious” but literally nothing interesting coming in my mind.

So, with that being said, I will just post this recipe and call it a night, haha!

Easy Breakfast Strata

One more thing, This makes amazing and healthy meal prep for a week. It is fantastic to just mix different ingredients.

Recipe
Yield: Serves 6

Easy Breakfast Strata

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

The wonderful world of casseroles. They are not only tasty, beautiful, nor easy to make, they are so versatile as well. 

Ingredients

  • 10 slices Italian Bread the best of it’s a bit stale, two to three days old
  • 8 Large Eggs mixed
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipped Cream or Half and Half
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 10 Asparagus younger, if possible, sliced
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Diced Country Ham you can sub with bacon, Canadian bacon, or boar’s head smoked ham
  • 1/2 Green Pepper diced
  • 1 cup of Shredded Cheese or 6 slices deli cheese (I used smoked gruyere cheese)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. In a large pan saute together asparagus, country ham, and green peppers. Add about 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook for 5 minutes at medium-high heat. Stir to saute everything equally.
  3. Mix eggs together, then to the eggs add 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon dry parsley and a pinch of baking soda. Baking soda acts to make eggs puffy and perfect so do not be afraid to add just a pinch. If you don’t have it, that’s fine too. No need to panic. Strata will come out delicious regardless.
  4. To the egg mixture add 1/2 cup heavy whipped cream, or half and half; Mix it again.
  5. Oil the baking dish with a drizzle of olive oil, you can use butter if you wish.
  6. Line bread in the baking dish and drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
  7. Top bread with the veggie and ham mixture. Spread equally. Then pour over mixed eggs and cream mixture. 
  8. Press the bread with the fork or spatula. You can keep it in the fridge overnight, or you can bake it right away.
  9. Add cheese and bake for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven. You may use any cheese that you prefer. I made this with the Mexican blend, cheddar, and mozzarella, so whatever cheese you use it will be fine. 
  10. You can garnish it with chopped parsley or green onions

Notes

I made this one using two smaller baking pans but the measurements are for one family size Strata, about 8 servings. This makes an amazing meal for a week. You can mix and match vegetables and meat. You can make it vegetarian or meat lovers.

Sodium: Country ham is already packed with sodium, as well as cheese so you really do not need much.

Who doesn’t like cheesecake- its sweet, delicious, lushes, and one of my family’s favorite desserts.

We had it once a week. It was a family tradition, I think, just like when we make sushi on Friday or grab a pizza on Saturday.

However, when we all switch to a low-carb, sugar-free lifestyle, buying cheesecake was not an option because nobody is selling around here sugar-free version.

Low Carb Cheesecake

With that being said, a few weeks ago, I decided to make my own. We were all craving it! It was not even funny.

I tried a few different recipes, and finally, on my third try, we got a winner. I thought it was a perfect balance of sweet and creamy. We all loved it so much. Even if you are not implementing a low carb or sugar-free lifestyle you can totally make this recipe.
