A Romantic Weekend Breakfast

For Two

weekend breakfast 3

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 –

weekend breakfast 2I 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.’

Fresh Fruit and Granola Tarts
Write a review
  1. 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  2. 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  3. 6 tablespoons chopped pecans
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 6 tablespoons cane syrup or maple syrup
  7. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  8. 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  9. 1 1/3 cups blueberries
  10. 2 large bananas, sliced
  11. 1 1/2 cups whole milk, plain yogurt (or vanilla flavored)
  12. 2 teaspoons honey, optional
  13. 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Toss together the sliced strawberries, blueberries and sliced bananas in a medium bowl.
  4. 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.

Well, plans didn’t turn out like I’d thought – we ended up watching some Princess Bride – another lovely, funny story. Dearest’s verdict is that he really liked these tarts!  It’s Groundhog Day – here in Georgia General Beauregard Lee saw his shadow thus forcasting for us six more weeks of winter. So much fun!

I hope you’re having a blessed weekend.

  1. Oh wow this looks delicious! I was going to say I will be right over but my hubby is making us a late brunch right now! We are having black bean & scrambled egg burritos!

    I am going to have to check that book out!

  2. What a delightful looking breakfast! The granola tarts are beautiful — I often do a yogurt/fruit/granola parfait kind of thing, but I may have to see if I can find some little tart pans to try that out — wait a minute! I wonder if I could shape the granola in those little pancake shape thingies — the metal ones that you set on a griddle? I have a set of heart shaped ones . . . .

  3. What a lovely breakfast – who wouldn’t feel “special”!

  4. OMG These look so good!! I love how simple yet beautiful they look. You just sold me the book!
