The warm aroma of cinnamon and brown sugar helps Terri McKitrick wake her family in Delafield, Wisconsin. Convenient toast sticks topped with granola, banana and whipped cream carry them through busy autumn days.
This fun granola mix can be enjoyed by the handful or as a topping on yogurt, pudding or ice cream. "My husband and I have 10 children, and I feel good about them eating this for breakfast or anytime," sys Robin McKenzie of Union City, Pennsylvania.
These hefty handfuls promise everyone a good hot breakfast with little fuss. Kids especially love the toasty grab-and-go pockets stuffed with pineapple, ham, turkey and cheese. And what a great way to use up leftovers!
Field editor Flo Burtnett, Gage, Oklahoma, lightens up her golden French toast with egg substitute and skim milk, then flavors it with orange juice, vanilla and a dash of nutmeg. The cornflake coating adds a fun crunch.
"I clipped this recipe from our local paper a few years ago," recalls Maxine Smith from Owanka, South Dakota. "It's a tasty lunch treat for hearty appetites. Plan on doubling the recipe for hungry grandkids," she adds.
