Zucchini Fritters and Salsa

Learn More About This Recipe +

Are you overrun with zucchini? These little fritters are a delicious way to use up your late summer bounty. Top them with a fresh salsa or even a poached egg if you like (or both!) and enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Kids will love these, and it's a great way to get a little more vegetables into their diets. The fritters are best eaten the day they are made and don't skip the step where you squeeze out all the extra moisture from the grated squashes before you cook. It will make a huge difference in the results!

A tasty way to use up your summer zucchini!

Popovers

Learn More About This Recipe +

Do you popover? Similar to Yorkshire puddings, popovers are tasty eggy, buttery hollow rolls you can whip up quickly in a plain old muffin tin. With their hollow interiors they are waiting to be stuffed with delicious fillings and served for breakfast or ripped apart and devoured with grilled meats. You can also make them sweet, by adding fruit and whipping cream. The trick with popovers is to make sure the pan is warm before you pour in the filling, and not to open the oven to peek for the first 20 minutes. If you disturb the popovers they may not rise as much as you like!

These can also be adapted to cook in a standard muffin tin, but you'd want to keep an eye on the baking time so that you don't burn them. Never fear though, popovers are so easy that when I was 12 we'd whip up a batch for an after school snack. Get the kids involved, they'll love making them!

Take your pancakes from sweet to savoury in this dish! Topped with eggs and salsa, this isn't your average breakfast. The corncakes smelled so good one didn't even make it from the stove to a plate-I stood there and greedily devoured it over the stove. Compeletely assembled, they make a very satisfying and delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

In Chilliwack, corn is king-there are fields of it everywhere, and this time of year roadside stands are everywhere so you can get your corn fix without even leaving your car. This recipe uses fresh corn when you can get it, but when you can't, try using thawed frozen. Either way, let's see if you can resist their call when you have them fresh off the grill!

Mini Bacon and Feta Frittatas

In the summer you're busy-shuttling the kids to camp, taking off to the beach or a park for the day. Breakfast sometimes needs to be something that you can just grab and go, but you also want it to fill up those tummies. These mini frittatas fit the bill perfectly-not only are they super tasty, but you can grab them and go, supplementing with a bit of fruit or slice of bread. Make them ahead of time and tuck into the fridge when you have a busy couple of days ahead!

Roasting the potatoes takes longer but adds a lot of flavour. You could, if you wish, use leftover boiled potatoes and cut them into bite sized bits to speed up the process. Egg creations allow you to cut back on the fat and cholesterol in the dish without sacrificing any taste. If you prefer to use whole eggs, try using about 6-8  eggs and increasing the 2 Tbsp of milk listed in the recipe to 1/4 cup.

Grab and go for a busy morning!

Peach Melba Pancakes

Peaches are tumbling into BC stores and farmers markets and when I'm not eating them raw, I'm making them into pies, fruit crumbles, and these wonderful pancakes. When you have a few going ripe on your counter and aren't sure what to do with them, this is by far the right answer. Pair them up with some fresh raspberries and you have a summer breakfast from heaven! I've tried making pancakes with sliced bananas and apples on the top but these are the best by far. The butter in the pan caramelizes the peaches, and the end result is spectacular!

Make sure to save a little extra fresh fruit to top them with, along with a good drizzle of maple syrup and you'll have the perfect summer breakfast.

Baked Eggs in Avocados

If you are avoiding gluten, breakfast can be a minefield. This breakfast, full of healthy omega 3s and protein will fill you up and get you through the day. I like topping the eggs with a bit of salt, pepper, and hot sauce to give it a bit of kick. There's no sugar and lots of fiber, which is perfect for some diets. The best part is they require little to no work and you can have them ready in only 15 minutes.

Baking the eggs atop a muffin tin keeps the avocados from tipping and losing the eggs onto the pan. Instead they are cradled and stay in one spot.
