What’s Your Egg Style?

Fried: cracked into a hot, oiled skillet and cooked through; try cracking an egg into a metal cookie cutter set in the pan for fun shaped eggs. Sunny-side-up: a fried egg that has been cooked without flipping. Over-easy: a fried egg flipped and cooked briefly on the other side; not long...

Eggs-ellent Leftover Ideas

1. Set a poached egg atop a hash made of chopped leftover potatoes and meat. 2. Bake eggs in a nest of leftover roasted vegetables or ratatouille. 3. Dump leftover rice into a hot pan slicked with oil. Crack in an egg or two and stir-fry with leftover vegetables...

Puffed Apple Pancake

This crunchy, billowy pancake takes just a few minutes to whisk together. Sturdier fruits such as apples and pears can be sautéed first and baked right into the pancake or set aside to be served on top; fragile fruits like berries are better served in the hollow of the...

No-Knead Bread

INGREDIENTS: 3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose or bread flour, plus more for dusting (I usually use half whole wheat and half all-purpose, sometimes with a shake of ground flaxseed added) 1/4 tsp. (1 mL) instant yeast (sometimes I use about 1/3 teaspoon regular active dry yeast) 1 tsp (5 mL) salt DIRECTIONS: In a...

Zucchini Marmalade

Try to buy thick-skinned fruit; thinner skinned citrus fruits don’t have much to contribute to marmalade! Ingredients: 2 lemons 1 large orange 2 cups (500 mL) water 1 medium-small zucchini, coarsely grated (about 1 1/2 cups) 4 cups (1 L) sugar Directions: Wash the lemons and orange well and grate the zest off using the coarse side...

Breakfast Bean Cookies

These are substantial, not too sweet, have an amazingly tender texture, and keep longer than other low fat cookies. Puréed, you don’t even know the beans are there! INGREDIENTS: 2 cups (500 mL) oats (quick or old-fashioned, not instant) 1 cup (250 mL) all-purpose or whole-wheat flour 1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder 1...

Bagels

Store-bought bagels that are close to the size of your head can weigh in at 500 calories apiece, even though they are low in fat. Flavour these more appropriately-sized ones any way you like by stirring in some grated cheese, caramelized onions, fresh garlic, cinnamon and raisins, toasted nuts...
