Croque-Monsieur Sandwich

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich

Every so often you just have to enjoy a delicious sandwich. I think there is undoubtedly nothing better than a French staple grilled cheese sandwich. Also, better known as Croque-Monsieur Sandwich. In translation, it means Gentlemen’s Crunch. My favourite way to eat a croque-madame is…

Toast Pizza Roll

Toast Pizza Roll

This Toast Pizza Roll makes one amazing party food. It is one extraordinary and easy finger food that most people, especially kids love. My family loves watching football as well as other sports, so we make a small party with delicious finger foods when we watch it.  As a result, this pizza was born after I was searching for easy finger foods. I cannot claim full credit for…

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Easy, Delicious, Mini Keto Everything Bagels.

Let’s just make something clear here… These are not, and I repeat precisely, these are not your traditional bagels. Now that I got that off my chest, let me continue.

When I started this Keto lifestyle, I missed nothing more than bread. Bread to me is like everything. So, my friends, I made my own bread. I am serious! Click right here.

With that being said, the other day I was like “man, I wish I had some bagels with this delicious whipped cream cheese” so I made my own.

No, they are not fluffy, sink gracefully your teeth into the doughy deliciousness, but they do their outstanding job.

Which is replacing or better said substituting the original and hitting the spot at the same time.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

I set myself a goal that I will do this Keto thing for 15 days, then extended to a month, now I have changed my mind yet again and I will go to 3 months.

Willingly allowing myself every now and then a little cheat day or rather a food item such as apple pie, banana cream pie or a bowl of real mashed potatoes.

Delicious potatoes! Oh, yes! I miss potatoes the most, but cauliflower somewhat replacing it, if I close my eyes and really believe it’s a cheesy potato. haha

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Jokes on the side, so far it has been undoubtedly a really good experience.

These are extremely easy bagels. I got this pan for baked donuts so these bagels are on the mini side; that’s why we can eat two of them per serving. 

You can find two sizes of these pans, so I picked up a larger one. I don’t actually know if anyone selling a full-size bagel pan.

I wish I knew they had them on AMAZON cause it would save me considerable time looking for it.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Anyhow, I really hope y’all like this one because it literally is saving me not to go back to eating loads of carbs.

Also, I received Pereg ”Everything but the Bagel” Seasoning. In love with it! Usually, I would make my own but I must say it was really tasty. We totally recommend it!

Mini Keto Everything Bagels
Yield: 4 Servings

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

Tasty and easy Low Carb bagels.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cage-Free Large Brown Organic Eggs separated
  • 1/8 teaspoon Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Bragg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Super Fine Almond Meal Flour 128g
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons Sour Cream All Natural
  • 3 tablespoons Organic Unsalted Butter room temp
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning

Instructions

  1. Separate egg whites and yolks.
  2. Mix Yolks with Sour cream, butter, and salt; set aside
  3. Mix Egg whites with a drop or two of Apple cider Vinegar.
  4. Combine the two by folding.
  5. To the almond meal add baking soda, mix and fold into the eggs.
  6. Add into “donut” tin, then sprinkle some everything bagel seasoning, if desired.You can use a spoon or piping bag. I used a ziplock bag and it worked just fine to get the batter into the donut cups without a mess. Fill the bag, close, get the air out and then cut the corner with scissors. 
  7. Preheat the oven to 375F and bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

  • You may make bigger bagels. I fill the donut cups 3/4 which gives just enough room for them to rise. They will not rise too much, but baking soda gives them a small amount of sponginess.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is an amazing addition, plus it replaces cream of tartar wonderfully.
  • In regard to almond flour, I measured it in the measuring cup, 1 cup, and then I used my scale which read 128 grams. If you are only on low carb diet than a gram up or down doesn’t make too much difference, but keto is more carb-restricted so just measure.

Homemade Dinner Rolls

Homemade Dinner Rolls

Homemade Dinner Rolls

These are probably the best homemade dinner rolls ever. Also, I will take bread over dessert anytime. That might sound crazy to some people, but that’s me.

You can either love as I am or hate me. Well, you have no reason to hate me, but you know what I mean.

I just really love bread with anything, and my family is like me. These rolls are incredibly delicious and easy to make.

It does take a bit patient, but that’s baking in general and it is totally worth it.

If you do not have the time to enjoy the process then you are not a baker. I might not be a cake maker, but I really enjoy making pies, rolls, biscuits, and bread.

Homemade Dinner Rolls

As you may notice I make everything with my hands. I do not use a large bowl, measuring cups/spoons, food scale, and a wooden spoon or multifunctional spatula.

Maybe one day when I am unable to knead the dough, I will invest in something like KitchenAid.

However, for now, I really enjoy working with my hands. If you wish to use Stand Mixer with kneading attachment please make your life easier and use it.

I make these days ahead for so we have them for sandwiches or school lunch. Most of the time I double the dough and refrigerate.

I grew up having weekend family feasts, so I love implementing that tradition with my own family as well.

It makes my heart full of joy having all my children around the table, delicious aroma of the cooked meal, usually roasted chicken and potatoes, with these rolls on the side in a basket cooling off.

Homemade Dinner Rolls
Yield: Serves 6

Homemade Dinner Rolls

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Proofing Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Easy and tasty homemade dinner rolls.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Luke Warm Water
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 stick unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg for brushing on the rolls

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Then take about 1/4 cup of warm milk and pour over sugar and dry yeast; Let it sit until the yeast gets activated {and this will tell you if the yeast is still active}
  3. Add room temperature eggs to melted and slightly cooled butter.
  4. Pour warm milk to activated yeast, then add mixed eggs and butter mixture and mix it.
  5. To wet mixture add dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking powder) and mix it until you cannot mix anymore with a wooden spoon or a spatula.
  6. Knead it until well combined, about 10 minutes of constant kneading. If you do not wish to knead it with your hands use KitchenAid with kneading/hook attachment and knead until the texture is smooth and elastic.
  7. Cover it and let it rise for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  8. Brush each roll either with melted unsalted butter or mixed egg (I liked it with mixed eggs, and after baking lightly brushing with butter)
  9. Add everything bagel seasoning, about 1/4 teaspoon or more on each roll.
  10. Allow them to rise for at least one hour, preferably one hour and a half.
  11. Bake the rolls at 400F for about 22 to 25 minutes OR until the rolls are golden brown.
  12. Once done cover the pan with a cotton kitchen towel and let it cool down before serving.

Notes

You can: after you brush rolls with egg or butter you can sprinkle some sesame seeds or poppy seeds on top before letting them rise. Or you can keep them plain, or add whatever topping that you prefer. The size of the rolls before the second rise should be smaller than the size of the tennis ball, but they will rise more in the oven. You can make 8 large rolls or about 12 smaller ones.

If you have leftover dough: This dough is even better after a few days of refrigeration. Just make sure to cover very well, the best way is to place in a Large Storage Plastic Bag (for vegetables or meat) close, take the air out and place it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

When you want to use it, just let it rise on the room temp. for about 30 min. Line the baking pan with parchment paper. Roll the dough into a long log, then cut approximately equal slices of dough, as you can see of step by step pictures. Roll each slice into a dinner roll.

You may dust a bit of flour or you can use marble surface for easier rolling. Place each dinner roll on the baking pan. Make enough space in between so the rolls have the space to rise.

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread Recipe #baking #bread #bananabread #food #homemade #foodblogger #recipes #recipe

 
Sometimes I really dream about food and then I wake up with crazy cravings. One of those mornings when I woke up I wanted delicious, dense, nutty, banana bread. I tried making it “healthier”, and I hope you all like it.
 
For this one, I used brown sugar and honey in this recipe and I got to assure you that it was wonderful. I suppose you can use maple syrup or agave nectar, but make sure to use correct measurements for those ingredients equal to sugar or honey.
 

Nevertheless, this kind of bread is perfect the next day, so since we have leftovers I genuinely enjoyed every little crumb of this bread with my morning coffee or afternoon tea. Additionally, I love baking it in square cake pans because it comes out perfectly baked and far less dense than when I bake banana bread in my loaf bread.

 

With that being said, if I do bake in my loaf pan, I always use less batter because I consider my middle part a bit more baked (laughing my butt off haha).

No, seriously, have you ever baked banana bread, and it looks superb, but when you slice into the bread, it’s like raw? I can’t even tell you how many times that happen to me so that’s why I switched completely to square baking pans.

Okay, I hope Y’all make this bread and like it…

HAPPY COOKING!

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 9 SQUARES
Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon powder
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Canola oil
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Brown Sugar preferably dark
  • 1/2 cup Honey 3/4 cup Maple Syrup could be used
  • 3-4 ripe Bananas
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour Non-Stick Square Cake Pan 9x9 or use parchment paper like I did.
  2. Combine together the flour, oats, sugar, salt, baking powder, soda and cinnamon powder in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together until somewhat smooth in texture: bananas (that you previously just smashed with a fork), Eggs, Honey and Canola Oil. I used an electric mixer.
  4. Now to the wet mixture add dry mixture, combine it together then add chopped walnuts (or any nuts that you prefer), and fold the nuts in the batter.
  5. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread (or into the crown of the bread, if you are making a loaf)., and it comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for at least 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack.
  6. Allow it to cool completely, or at least for an hour before serving.

Recipe Notes

This bread is even better the next day, just heat it for 30 seconds in the microwave and you will be amazed. You can also make this as muffins or a loaf pan, although I like it in this type of baking pan because it bakes much better. If you like your banana bread sweeter use 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I liked mine just the way it is, but we all have different tastes. If the honey is too sugary you can place a jar in a warm water for a couple of minutes until the honey becomes soft and smooth in texture.
