Surprise mom with breakfast in bed

French Toast, Eggs & Breakfast Parfait


2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
salt to taste
6 thick slices bread


Beat together egg, milk, salt, desired spices and vanilla.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle of skillet over medium-high flame.
Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides. Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden. Serve hot.



1 slice bacon
1 teaspoon melted butter
1 egg
1/4 slice Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown, but still flexible. Wrap bacon slice around the inside of a muffin cup. Place a teaspoon of butter (or bacon grease) in the bottom of muffin cup. Drop in egg.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Place 1/4 slice of cheese over egg, and continue cooking until cheese is melted and egg is cooked.

Breakfast Parfait


1 cup (250 mL) fresh fruit or berries (see list below)
1/2 cup (125 mL) plain or vanilla-flavored yogurt
1/2 cup (125 mL) granola or other whole-grain cereal
1 tbsp. (15 mL) honey or your favourite fruit jam


Spoon half of the fruit or berries into the bottom of a parfait glass or other ice cream sundae-type dish. Top with half of the yogurt, and sprinkle with half of the cereal.
Repeat with remaining fruit and remaining yogurt.
Add a decorative drizzle of honey or a dollop of jam and sprinkle the top with the rest of the cereal.
For a finishing touch decorate with a single, perfect berry or slice of fruit. Beautiful!
Choose one or more of the following fruits and berries to create your Breakfast Sundae. Use fresh fruit when it's available; otherwise unsweetened frozen or canned fruit is perfectly acceptable:
