My husband likes Savoury for Breakfast, not sweet and definitely not a combination of the two! On the weekends I prefer all the old standards: Pancakes with Maple Syrup, Crepes with Homemade Jams or Fresh Fruit, Waffles with Syrup…you see where I am going with this? Probably not the healthiest breakfasts going.
Ever since Luke started the Atkins diet in January I am trying to support him in every way I can which means I have stopped making all the old standby weekend breakfasts! This past week I discovered Muffin in a Minute, often referred to as MIMs. I found a basic recipe and have made a few variations: Cheddar Bacon, Black Forest, Cinnamon Spice and today combined chocolate flavour with raspberries. Yum!
