French Toastilla with Peanut Butter and Banana

 

It’s been a minute since I blogged here!  Being a working mom means being busy and having limited time and energy pretty much.. always!  I’ve been trying to find ways to jazz up my mealtime, but still eat fresh, healthy foods cooked at home instead of pure convenience foods. I LOVE how this little experiment turned out, so I had to share!  I was craving french toast, but didnt want something that heavy or sugary. I was trying to work with ingredients we had in the house, and I wanted it to have enough protein to balance out the carbs. I actually thought of the idea of french-toasting the tortilla because I wanted the tiny bit of extra protein that tossing it in egg added. 

This meal was a big hit with the whole family! I would love to see pictures if you decide to give it a try! 🙂

Ingredients
  1. 1 whole wheat tortilla
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1 tspn vanilla
  4. 1/8 cup peanut butter
  5. 1/2 medium banana
  6. 1/4 cup blueberries
Instructions
  1. Whisk egg in a bowl and add vanilla. Dip tortilla in the egg mixture, let extra liquid drip off. Place tortilla in a heated nonstick pan (optionally, can use nonstick spray or butter to prevent tortilla from sticking). Let tortilla cook about 30 seconds per side.

Turkey Sausage & Apple Skillet

Today is Foodie Friday, a link up hosted by some great ladies, which you can find out more about here. Apparently, this is National Apple week, which has inspired me to share a recipe I created years ago that uses apple and apple cider! The picture isn’t exactly the most amazing ever, but the meal was delicious! The recipe for the skillet is below. It’s pictured with quinoa (make as directed on the box!) and a very simple puree, which I made by microwaving equal parts rutabaga and butternut squash (peeled and cubed). Then, smash or puree in a food processor. Then add a bit of honey, salt, and all spice, pretty much all to taste.

You can easily cut the recipe in half for a great meal for one or double the recipe to feed a family or have easy left overs!

Overall, a delicious meal!
