A Cozy Little Breakfast

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to show you guys my favorite quick breakfasts.  I normally don't eat "traditional" breakfast foods, especially when I go out to a restaurant, since I either can't eat, or don't like most of the foods.  I don't eat meat, so that knocks out sausage and bacon, eggs creep me out, so no omelettes, most yogurts have gelatin in them, and I don't like overly sweet foods like pancakes and waffles.  However, when I am in the comfort of my own kitchen, I have the ability to experiment more with breakfasts, and I finally found one that I love!

I have recently rediscovered my love for oatmeal.  I used to love it as a kid, but for some reason I stopped eating it.  My friend at work is gluten free, and she got me hooked back on to the warm oat cereal. In order t make this breakfast more "traditional", I added Morning Star Hot Spicy Sausage Patties. I love how spicy and savory they are to cut the sweetness from the oatmeal.

 Finally I finish off this spread with some cinnamon toast.  It's a really simply concoction that I found floating around on Pinterest.

All you need is some butter, cinnamon, sugar, and a slice of bread.  I used oatmeal bread for this, but any kind would work.

Instead of cinnamon and sugar, I used my Trader Joe's Cinnamon Sugar Grinder.  It has cinnamon and large chunks of sugar in a grinder just like a pepper grinder. It is really cool, and easy to add a bit of cinnamon and sugar to anything you want.

Just mix the butter, cinnamon, and sugar together in a small bowl, spread it on the bread, and broil it until golden brown.

That's it, super easy and really tasty!  And what I love about this is that I can add as much or as little sugar as I want, so its not overly sweet.

What is your favorite breakfast? Are you going to try this easy cinnamon sugar toast?

Bye from the Veggie Side!


  1. I just ate breakfast (and it was oatmeal!!) but now i'm hungry again!

  2. I've never liked oatmeal, but the cinnamon toast sounds good! For breakfast, I usually just have cereal or eggs or more likely just forget to eat it altogether. lol


I read every comment! I appreciate everything you guys have to say, so go on and comment, I don't bite!
