The weekends are a marvelous time to sleep in and stay warm in your bed. What better time to make a Delightsome Breakfast for two to share in your bedroom. We could take our time and put our favorite, romantic movie, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ on – just a few days ago we celebrated the 200th anniversary of this amazing story –
I have been wanting to create this beautiful dish ever since I saw it in the cookbook, Modern Hospitality: Simple Recipes with Southern Charm by Whitney Miller. She is a lovely young lady who at 23 crowned was America’s first MasterChef. This enabled her to print her first cookbook, it is a beautiful collection of her spin on Southern dishes – the photography is perfectly cottagy in a style that Whitney called, ‘Southern Chic Decor.’
- 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons chopped pecans
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cane syrup or maple syrup
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups strawberries, sliced
- 1 1/3 cups blueberries
- 2 large bananas, sliced
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk, plain yogurt (or vanilla flavored)
- 2 teaspoons honey, optional
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, syrup and melted butter in a large bowl. Divide the mixture evenly between three 4 1/2 inch tart pans with removable bottoms. Press the mixture into the button, but not onto the sides of the pans. Bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven. Using the back of a spoon, press some of the granola into the sides of the tart pans. Return to the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes to set the crusts. Let the tart shells rest for 3 to 4 minutes, then using an oven mit to protect the hands, carefully remove the tart shells from the pans and set on racks to cool completely.
- Toss together the sliced strawberries, blueberries and sliced bananas in a medium bowl.
- To serve, place each tart shell on a small plate, spoon the fruit mixture onto the shells. Spoon 1/4 cup of the yogurt, drizzle with honey, if desired. Serve garnished with orange zest.
I hope you’re having a blessed weekend.
