I hesitate to label these as a toddler food, only because my 5’10” 12 year-old couldn’t devour them quick enough when I recently asked my family to taste test the recipe. In fact, my husband was pretty impressed with them too—so really they’re a protein-packed bundle that works well for any age group, but the small size and familiar flavours certainly lend themselves well to the toilet-training crowd.
What I like about these savoury bites are that they work just as well for breakfast as they do for lunch, and can even be served for dinner along with a bowl of soup or some apple slices and veggie sticks. I’ve taken to making a batch on Sunday mornings and popping them in the freezer for the week to come. I like to thaw them in the fridge overnight and warm up them up in the oven/toaster oven the next day—to crisp the outsides and warm the interior again.
To fancy them up a little for the bigger people in the house, feel free to add a chopped green onion or two to the batter. My son thought they would taste pretty good topped with pizza sauce and a bit of Parmesan cheese and I kind of think he’s probably right.

I’m starting to think about what to make for Easter breakfast this year and, as usual, I’m struggling between a sweet or savoury main option. I know I can serve both, but I really do prefer to narrow it down to one or the other, and then fill the rest of the table with an assortment of fresh fruit, yogurt parfaits and baked bread.
This week, a recipe for Raisin Pecan Sticky Toast came though my email and it quickly became a front-runner for the sweet breakfast option, should I decide to go that way. Raisin bread is a nostalgic item from my own childhood and I can attest to how great it tastes when toasted. The addition of brown sugar and chopped nuts elevates it a new flavour level resulting in a tasty dish that resembles the French toast we’re all familiar with, but with a cinnamon bun taste, minus the mess. All the work for this recipe is done in the oven making it a perfect choice for easy entertaining, or just to leave your hands free so you can help the kids hunt for their eggs.
