In my home, Christmas morning not only means opening presents, it also means having a big, delicious breakfast with family.  Many times we’ve had guests at our house, so having something special for breakfast was always a tradition.  While you can cook a typical breakfast casserole or the standard egg and breakfast meat, I’ve gathered some wonderful recipes that feature fruit and veggies that will not only keep your Christmas morning healthy, but also make it even tastier.

 

This Veggie Loaded Breakfast Casserole is exactly that–veggie loaded!  Shredded potatoes, mushrooms, red onion, garlic, baby spinach, and bell pepper are combined with shredded cheese, eggs, and milk.  Add a little hot sauce and salt/pepper to taste and you’ve got the best breakfast casserole I’ve found.

This Spinach and Cheese Strata is terrific in that all the prep work can be done the night before.  Christmas morning all you need to do is pop in the oven and bake.  You’ll use chopped onion, two packages of frozen chopped spinach, cubed French bread, shredded Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses, nutmeg, eggs, milk, and butter.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing is a great way to start your morning and takes advantage of in season produce.  Mandarin oranges, apples, kiwi fruit, bananas, and pomegranate arils are combined together for the salad.  The dressing is made from lemon juice, sugar, olive oil, vegetable oil, honey, and poppy seeds.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and I’ll be back next week with a recipe that will have you rethinking how you look at fruit cake.

‘Tis the season for goodwill, friends, family, and celebrations.  Unfortunately, many times all these holiday gatherings can result in unwanted, excess weight gain by the new year.  A big part of the problem is that traditional seasonal recipes are loaded with fat and calories.  Thankfully, it’s not difficult to still enjoy yourself this holiday season, yet take a healthier approach to your holiday menu.

 

Garlic Herb Butternut Squash is a super flavorful side dish that can replace something like twice baked potatoes. The recipe calls for cubed butternut squash, extra virgin olive oil, chopped fresh herbs (parsley, thyme, and rosemary), minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste.  Not only is this low fat and calorie, but it’s easy to prepare.

Holiday Honeycrisp Salad looks festive and combines in season flavors.  Thinly sliced honeycrips apples, toasted pecans, dried cranberries, and blue cheese are combined with salad greens for the salad.  A dressing is made from extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, apple cider, honey, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Roasted Cranberry and Goat Cheese Flatbread make a festive and delicious appetizer for your guests.  You’ll roast fresh cranberries in maple syrup, shallots, thyme, and salt before spreading them over the flatbread.  Top with goat cheese and then place back in the oven to bake until the cheese is softened and the bread is crispy.

A healthy dessert alternative to cakes, cookies, and pies is this recipe for Baked Pears with Honey, Cranberries, and Pecans.  You’ll use fresh pears (Bartlett, bosc, or Anjou), fresh cranberries, chopped pecans, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, honey, and a little Greek yogurt if you want to serve on top.

I’ll be back next Monday with some ideas for your Christmas morning brunch.

In the cooler weather months, you’ll notice recipes using leeks more frequently.  Part of the reason is they are in season during this time and can be found with ease in your supermarket’s produce section.  Leeks are a member of the onion family, but they have a slightly sweeter flavor.  They are a nutritious addition to your menu, as they are fat free, cholesterol free, very low in sodium, an excellent source of Vitamin A, and a good source of Vitamin C and folate.  While you can substitute leeks in place of onions, there are some terrific recipes specifically set aside for using these savory veggies.

This Caramelized Leek Quiche can be made for a brunch or a meatless dinner entrée.  This recipe has you make your own crust, which is a special treat!  You’ll combine sliced leeks, eggs, grated gruyere cheese, milk, fresh thyme, heavy cream, salt and pepper to create the quiche.

Simple, yet elegant is how I’d describe Leeks with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette.  It’s a beautiful side dish to make for guests.  You’ll saute the leeks in olive oil and butter and then add chicken stock and parsley to the pan.  Simmer until the leeks are tender. Arrange the leeks on a serving platter.  Add lemon juice and Dijon mustard to the pan and whisk to combine.  Season with salt and pepper and pour the vinaigrette over the leeks and serve.

Porri al Forno or Leeks Baked in Cream is another simple side dish, but one that packs a lot of flavor.  Cut your leeks crosswise and have enough to arrange close together in a baking dish.  In a bowl, combine leeks, two cups heavy cream, one cup of parmesan cheese, and season with salt and pepper.  Arrange in your baking dish with the cut sides up, cover with foil, and bake 60 minutes in a 425 degree oven.  Remove foil and sprinkle with a half cup of parmesan cheese.  Finish baking for another 20 minutes until tender and browned.

I’m back next Monday with some recipes to help you keep it healthier this holiday season.

Salads can be a healthy part of your meal and when you include a protein like chicken or fish, can be made into an entrée.  One big mistake many folks make is by drowning their healthy salad with a fat, calorie, and sodium laden dressing.  Not only are you defeating the purpose of eating healthy, but you’re covering the delicate flavors of the fruit and/or veggies.  While their are some healthy store bought options available, it’s not hard to make your own dressing.  I’ve collected a few recipes that are light and simple to make.

Rosemary Lemon Vinaigrette highlights aromatic rosemary and is perfect for any kind of salad.  You’ll combine garlic, fresh rosemary leaves, sea salt, lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil.  You can keep this dressing in the refrigerator for up to five days in an airtight container.

Homemade Strawberry Vinaigrette would be perfect on fresh spinach, but goes well with any fresh veggie or fruit salad.  You’ll blend together fresh strawberries, honey, sea salt, black pepper, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil.  After mixed, stir in poppy seeds and serve over your salad.  Store covered in your refrigerator for up to one week.

This Lemon Herb Vinaigrette is super versatile.  It can be used over greens, pasta, or potato salads.  Simply combine olive oil, canola oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, oregano, basil, mint, minced garlic, chopped sun dried tomatoes, salt, sugar, and black pepper in a glass jar then shake well.  Let the vinaigrette sit for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.  Store in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator for up to a week.
