We often mix up a quick version of cinnabuns using a biscuit type dough. With summer here and more leisure time we’ve been enjoying genuine yeast raised cinnabuns. I use the buttery rolls recipe off of my Cheat Sheet, increasing the sugar to half a cup and using three teaspoons of yeast. I let the dough mix up in my Zo set to the quick dough cycle and it’s ready in half an hour. Then we roll the dough out into a rectangle. Spread with half a stick of softened butter and sprinkle with half a cup of good cinnamon sugar.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Blend together 1 stick of butter, 4 cups flour (I use half whole wheat), ½ cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon baking powder. While you are going at that mixture with your pastry blender, you might have a little helper to mix up the cinnamon sugar: stir two teaspoons of good cinnamon into half a cup of sugar. If you are fortunate to have another helper, that one can get started on the wet ingredients: break an egg into a glass measuring cup. Add a splash or two of vanilla, whisk it a bit with a fork, and add milk to make one cup. Gently mix this into the nicely crumbled dry ingredients just until dough holds together. Roll out into a rectangular sort of shape. Spread dough with a stick of softened butter and then sprinkle with the freshly mixed cinnamon sugar that your littlest helper prepared. Roll up along the long edge into a probably somewhat untidy but friendly shaggy log. Slice into nice fat cinnabuns and place on cookie sheet, around 25 or so depending on how big you make them. Bake for approximately 18 minutes or until done (lightly browned). While they are baking your assistant can mix up the icing: one cup of confectioner’s sugar with enough milk to make a spreadable icing. My helpers always play the game of adding too much milk – oh dear it’s too runny! Must add more sugar – drat now it’s too stiff – needs more milk etc. until they’ve practically doubled the icing amount. But no one ever complains. Don’t forget to put the kettle on while the Yums bake. Try to let them cool a bit before spreading with the icing.

2 slices of white bread
1 slice of ham
1 slice of Muenster or Baby Swiss cheese
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
Butter or margarine

Beat eggs & milk together. Dip bread in mixture to coat both sides. In large skillet, melt butter & put in bread in single layers. Cook on medium high heat until both sides are lightly browned. On one slice of bread, add a slice of ham & cheese; cover with the other slice of bread. Cook at low heat until cheese has melted.
These can be made ahead of time, wrapped in foil, then reheated (in the foil) in the oven.

Review:  This was very good.  I cooked one side each of the French toast, then I stacked the ham onto the cheese, then assembled the sandwich with cooked sides in.

Breakfast Burritos and Sausage Biscuits

Posted on August 27, 2007. Filed under: Breakfast |

For the burritos: I just make scrambled eggs with bacon bits in them and top with cheese when they’re done. Spoon a couple spoonfuls onto a large flour tortilla and roll up. I wrap these individually in plastic wrap and put into a big freezer bag that way they don’t stick together. To reheat: put in microwave for about 45 seconds. Everyone’s microwaves are different, so you just kind of watch it the first time.

Sausage-egg-cheese biscuits: I use the large “Grand’s-type” biscuits, baked, cooled and split in two. Make sausage patties, (1 lb. roll will make 8 patties), make scrambled eggs, but instead of making them “scrambled” don’t stir as much, so they are more “omelet-like”. Then you can cut them in about 8 pieces. I layer a sausage patty, egg and top with a half slice of cheese, between the two biscuit halves. I wrap these individually too. For reheating: same as for burrito’s — about 45 seconds to 1 minute. More or less depending on your microwave.
