Mini Egg Casseroles Baked Cinnamon Pecan French Toast Yields 12 casseroles Recipes and photos by Laura Araujo


✓ Cooking spray ✓ 2 slices sandwich bread ✓ ¾ cup precooked sausage crumbles ✓ ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese ✓ 8 eggs ✓ 2/3 cup milk ✓ 1 t dried thyme ✓ ½ t black pepper


Step 1: Have an adult preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffi n pan with cooking spray and set it aside.


Step 2: Place a cutting board on the counter and have an adult cut the slices of bread into ¼-inch cubes. Arrange the cubes evenly among the muf- fi n pan’s 12 holes.


Step 3: Measure 1 tablespoon of sausage and 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese into each hole.


Step 4: Place a medium-size bowl on the coun- ter. Crack the eggs into the bowl and throw the shells away. Use a liquid measuring cup to measure the milk and add it to the bowl. Add the thyme and black pepper to the bowl. Beat the mixture with a whisk until it’s fully combined. Carefully pour the contents of the bowl into the liquid measuring cup.


Step 5: Use the liquid measuring cup to fi ll each hole in the muffi n pan, almost to the top, with the egg mixture.


Step 6: Have an adult place the pan into the oven. Set the oven timer for 15 minutes.


Step 7: Have an adult remove the pan when the casseroles are golden on top. Allow the casseroles to cool for a few minutes and then have an adult use a rubber spatula to loosen them from the pan. Serve while they’re hot!


34 OKLAHOMA LIVING Serves 6-8


✓ 1 loaf French bread ✓ 3 eggs ✓ 2 cups milk ✓ 1 t vanilla ✓ ¼ cup brown sugar ✓ 1 t cinnamon ✓ ¼ cup pecan pieces ✓ powdered sugar ✓ maple syrup


Step 1: Have an adult preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Step 2: Set up a cutting board on the counter with a 9 x 13-inch baking pan next to it. Place the loaf of bread on the cutting board and, with an adult’s help, cut the loaf of French bread into 1-inch slices. Arrange the slices in the baking pan. (They may overlap a little bit.)


Step 3: Place a medium-size bowl on the counter. Crack the eggs into it and throw away the shells. Measure the milk in a liquid measuring cup and add it to the bowl. Use a teaspoon to measure the vanilla and add it to the


bowl. With a whisk, beat the eggs, milk and vanilla together, until the eggs are fully mixed in.


Step 4: Pour the milk mix- ture over the bread and ro- tate the slices, if needed, so all of the liquid is absorbed by the bread.


Step 5: In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and pecan pieces.


Step 6: Use a spoon to sprinkle the cinnamon mixture over the top and between the slices of bread.


Step 7: Have an adult put the pan into the oven and set the oven timer for 30 minutes. Once the time is up, have oven mitts ready for the adult to pull the French toast out of the oven.


Step 8: Have an adult plate the French toast. Use a sieve to dust it with powdered sugar, if desired, and serve it to mom or grandma with a side of maple syrup.


Note: You can do Steps 2 through 4 the night before you plan to serve the French toast. Cover the baking pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight.


✓ Parfait glass or other clear glass ✓ 3 strawberries ✓ ¼ cup fresh blueberries ✓ ¼ cup fresh raspberries ✓ ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt ✓ ¼ cup granola Step 1: Wash the berries well.


Step 2: Place a small cutting board on the counter. Have an adult help you to cut the strawberries into bite-sized pieces. Remove and discard the tops of the berries. Place the cut strawberries into a small bowl.


Step 3: Add the blueberries and raspber- ries to the bowl and mix gently.


Step 4: Spoon a few tablespoons of the mixed berries into the bottom of the parfait glass.


Step 5: Top the berries with a tablespoon of the granola.


Step 6: Spoon a few tablespoons of the yogurt on top of the granola.


Step 7: Continue to layer the berries, granola and yogurt in the glass until the ingredients are gone. Finish with a layer of yogurt on top.


Step 8: Garnish the parfait with a couple berries and a sprinkle of granola.
