RECIPE: Hungarian Rice Pudding

rice-pudding-LittleBucharestBistro-230

A bone-chilling day like today calls for extra helpings of comfort food. One of our favorites is rice pudding. We’ve made it every way, including conventional, with rum-soaked raisins, with dried cherries and cranberries replacing the raisins, and a Thai-inspired version with black rice and coconut milk.

Today, it’s Hungarian rice pudding. This is the recipe made by the Hungarian grandmother of Branko Podrumedic, owner of Little Bucharest Bistro in Chicago. In Hungarian, the recipe is called budinca de orez.

Rice pudding is usually served as a dessert, but Branko notes that it also makes a delicious breakfast. If you’d like an eggier pudding for breakfast, you can increase the eggs to four, and reduce the honey for a less dessert-like (sweet) dish.

For a richer rice pudding, use half and half instead of regular milk. For a non-dairy version, use coconut milk.

 
Whether for dessert or breakfast, you can serve it with fresh fruit or a spoonful jam (our own grandmother was partial to cherry preserves).
 
RECIPE: HUNGARIAN RICE PUDDING

Ingredients For 4 Servings

  • 1 cup rice (uncooked)*
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • Optional garnishes: chopped toasted nuts, toasted coconut, fresh fruit, preserves or fruit sauce (purée)
  •  

    *We prefer white basmati rice, which makes a creamy rice pudding but holds its texture.

    Preparations

    1. COOK the rice. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

    2. BEAT the eggs in a large bowl. Add the milk, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Beat very well with a whisk or electric beaters, ensuring that no honey remains at the bottom of the bowl. Add the rice and raisins to the liquid mixture. Stir until combined.

    3. GREASE a baking dish, and gently pour in the rice mixture.

    4. SPRINKLE nuts on top and dust top with cinnamon.

    5. PLACE the baking dish in a pan of warm water and bake for approximately 50 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Serve hot or cold with cream, fresh berries, fruit sauce and/or toasted coconut garnish.

    TIP OF THE DAY: Goat Cheese For Breakfast

    It’s the second day of the Year Of The Goat, and we’re focusing on goat cheese for breakfast.

    We love goat cheese so much, that a log or tomme of fresh goat cheese with toasted baguette (and fresh tomato and basil in the summer) is our kind of meal.

    But you can incorporate goat cheese into conventional breakfast recipes, as this tip attests.

    At the simplest, there are goat cheese crostini with jam or preserves. If you want to bake, there are goat cheese and mushroom tarts. You can make a breakfast sandwich, or your favorite egg dish.

    RECIPE: GOAT CHEESE & PRESERVES CROSTINI

    This recipe is from Smucker’s, which uses its Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest Northwest Triple Berry Preserves. You can use your favorite berry preserves or jam.

  • Here’s the difference between jam and preserves.
  • Here’s the difference between crostini and bruschetta.
  •  
    RECIPE: GOAT CHEESE & JAM BREAKFAST CROSTINI

    Prep time is 15 minutes, cook time is 6 minutes.

    Ingredients For 12 Slices

  • 1/4 cup berry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme*, plus additional for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 baguette (8 ounces), sliced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • Optional: fresh thyme leaves for garnish
  •  
    *You can substitute fresh basil, marjoram, oregano or savory for the thyme.

    Preparation

    1. COMBINE the preserves, shallots, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper in small bowl.

    2. SLICE the baguette into 1/2-inch slices. Brush both sides of each slice lightly with olive oil. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Grill baguette slices, four at a time, 2 to 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Place on serving platter.

    3. SPREAD about 2 teaspoons of goat cheese over each baguette slice. Top each slice with 1 teaspoon of the preserves mixture. Garnish with additional fresh thyme. Serve immediately.

    TIP: The preserves-vinegar-thyme spread can be prepared up to two days ahead and refrigerated, covered.

     

    crustless-breakfast-tarts-kalynskitchen-230

    These Crustless Breakfast Tarts with Mushrooms and Goat Cheese are elegant enough for a special occasion. Photo courtesy Kalyn’s Kitchen.

     

    Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen was inspired by a new tart pan to make breakfast tarts, combining cream, eggs, goat cheese, green onions, mozzarella, mushrooms and Parmesan. You can also use a muffin pan or individual gratin dishes.

    There’s no pastry, so you can save the carbs for your toast or muffin.

    The tarts will keep in the fridge for at least a week and can be reheated in a microwave or hot toaster oven. It only takes a about 70 seconds in the microwave; don’t microwave too long or the eggs will get rubbery.

    RECIPE: CRUSTLESS BREAKFAST TARTS WITH GOAT
    CHEESE & MUSHROOMS

    Ingredients For 6 Breakfast Tarts

  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese (e.g. from a log), crumbled and softened
  • 1/4 cup milk, half and half, or cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan
  • 12 ounces crimini (baby bella) mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 2-3 teaspoons olive oil (depending on your pan)
  • 1 teaspoon Spike Seasoning (see below, or use any all-purpose seasoning blend that’s good with eggs)
  • Fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons mozzarella cheese, crated
  •  
    Preparation

    1. REMOVE the goat cheese from the fridge, cut off 4 ounces, crumble and place in a bowl to start to soften. Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. Spray the tart pan (or other cookware) with olive oil or nonstick spray.

    2. USE a fork to mix the milk/cream into the softened goat cheese; then mix in the Parmesan. Beat the eggs in a different bowl and mix 1/3 at a time into the goat cheese mixture, stirring each time you add more egg. (The mixture doesn’t need to be completely smooth.)

    3. WASH and pat dry the mushrooms and slice about 3/8 inch thick. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan to avoid crowding the mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms over medium-high heat until all the released liquid has evaporated and mushrooms are starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Divide the mushrooms between the wells in the tart pan.

    4. POUR the custard mixture over the mushrooms and gently stir to distribute the mushrooms evenly. Sprinkle a generous pinch of green onions on top of each tart, followed by one tablespoon of grated mozzarella.

    5. BAKE for 25-27 minutes (or slightly longer if you don’t have this tart pan and your tarts are a little thicker). Cook just until the tarts are starting to barely brown on the top; the custard mixture should be soft. Serve hot.
     
    SPIKE SEASONING

    Spike Seasoning was created by more than 50 years ago and still has a huge fan base; it gets a five-star review on Amazon. You can buy it online or at retailers nationwide. There’s also a salt-free, gluten-free version.

    Original Spike Seasoning a blend of 39 ingredients: Salt and sea salt, de-fatted nutri-soy granules, granular toasted onion, nutritional yeast, granular garlic, celery root granules, ground dill, horseradish granules, mustard powder, lemon peel, orange powder, parsley flakes, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, white pepper, rose hips powder, summer savory, mushroom powder, safflower, parsley powder, white onion powder, spinach powder, tomato powder, sweet Hungarian paprika, ground celery seed, cayenne pepper, ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground ginger, ground coriander, ground fenugreek, ground cloves, cinnamon powder, oregano, tarragon, sweet basil, marjoram, rosemary and thyme.

    If you don’t see it in the spice section, look near the health foods.

    RECIPE: Red Velvet Pancakes

    Red velvet pancakes: use seasonal garnish
    for July 4th, Christmas, Valentine’s Day or
    Mother’s Day. Photo courtesy Taste Of
    Home.

     

    For a special Valentine’s Day breakfast, brunch or lunch, Taste Of Home magazine suggests these red velvet pancakes.

    Red food works for July 4th and Christmas, of course. Just vary the garnish:

  • Christmas: mint leaf or sliced kiwi (or make green whipped cream!)
  • Valentine’s Day: red berries
  • July 4th: whipped cream, crème fraîche or mascarpone; plus blueberries
  •  
    Note that the recipe below is for a party-size batch of pancakes—five batches of 16 pancakes per batch.

    However, the mixed dry ingredients can be divided into five batches, which can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. You can use the recipe as a guide to make smaller amounts.

    Or, make the five-batch lot, and give the four extra batches as Valentine gifts—tied with a red ribbon.

     
    RECIPE: RED VELVET PANCAKES

    Prep time is: 30 minutes, cooking time is 15 minutes per batch.

    Ingredients For 5 Batches (10 Cups Mix Total)

  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa

  •  
    Additional Ingredients (For Each Batch)

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs

    PRODUCT: Raisin Bran With Cranberries

    KelloggsRaisinBranwithCranberries-230

    New: Kellogg’s Raisin Bran with Cranberries. Photo courtesy Kellogg’s.

     

    We commit to eating a whole grain breakfast every day, trying to build up to our our Daily Value of 48 grams of whole grain (here’s why). We tend to alternate among Cheerios, Shredded Wheat and oatmeal.

    We don’t buy Raisin Bran often enough. But Raisin Bran is also a whole grain cereal, with 23g of whole grain per serving—more than Cheerios’ 20g per serving. (Oatmeal [not instant] has 32g, Shredded Wheat has 16g.)

    So when we were offered a sample of new Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Raisin Bran Cereal with Cranberries, we accepted and polished off the box in two days, enjoying it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

    Given the antioxidant craze, we’re surprised it took this long. It’s a more sophisticated flavor update to the long-popular classic Raisin bran, and the cranberries and raisins plump up nicely in the milk.

    The latest member of the Raisin Bran Family—Original, Crunch and Omega 3 From Flaxseed—is Cranberry.

     
    Of course, you can add your own cranberries to regular Raisin Bran or any breakfast cereal. The milk adds 8 grams of protein and 15% daily value of calcium.

    The longest pancakes ever. Photo courtesy Jennie-O.

     

    Ladle pancake batter over strips of bacon, and long, fun pancakes result. This recipe from Jennie-O uses the company’s turkey bacon, but you can use any bacon you wish.

    RECIPE: TURKEY BACON PANCAKES

    Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch salt

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 12 bacon slices, cooked according to package directions
  • Maple syrup
  • Optional garnish: berries or other fresh fruit
  •  

    Preparation

    1. HEAT the griddle pan to medium-high. In medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    2. WHISK together the buttermilk, egg and butter in small bowl. Add to the flour mixture. Stir until combined, do not over stir.

    3. PLACE two strips of bacon together every 4 inches apart on greased griddle. Ladle ¼ to ? cup of the pancake mixture over the bacon to form long pancakes. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear over surface of pancakes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer or until golden brown.

    4. SERVE with maple syrup and optional fruit.

    TIP OF THE DAY: Microwave Scrambled Eggs

    microwaved-scramble-eggs-aeb-230

    Yes you can…make scrambled eggs in the microwave. Photo courtesy American Egg Board.

     

    Don’t like to scrub pans? Make scrambled eggs in a mug in the microwave. Here’s how from the American Egg Board:
     
    RECIPE: MICROWAVE SCRAMBLED EGGS

    Ingredients Per Serving

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish or mix-in: fresh herbs or shredded cheese
  •  
    Preparation

    1. BEAT the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in microwave-safe bowl or 12-ounce coffee mug, until blended. Add cheese or herbs as desired.

    2. MICROWAVE on HIGH for 45 seconds, then stop and stir. Continue to microwave until the eggs are almost set, 30 to 45 seconds longer. Serve immediately.

     
    NOTES

  • Microwave ovens vary in strength. Cook time may need to be adjusted.
  • Even if the eggs look like they can use a few more seconds, don’t overcook. Scrambled eggs will continue to cook and firm up after removed from microwave.
  •  

    Variations For Any Scrambled Eggs Recipe

  • For rich creamy scrambled eggs, you can use cream instead of milk, or add small cubes of cream cheese or a dollop of cottage cheese before cooking. Chef Wylie Dufresne adds cream cheese to his scrambled eggs recipe.
  • For added flavor, stir a bit of creamy salad dressing, pesto or salsa into the egg mixture.
  •  
    MILK VERSUS NO MILK

    Always add milk (ideally whole milk) or cream to scrambled eggs. The fat in the milk/cream slows down the cooking process, and the additional water (milk is approximately 87% water) adds to the tenderness.

    On the other hand, don’t add milk to omelets. They have a more compact structure; adding milk can make them harder.

    Belvita Breakfast Bites: crunchy nuggets that are good for you. Photo courtesy Mondelez Global.

     

    In 2013 year, belVita Breakfast Biscuits were a favorite at THE NIBBLE.

    What makes something a favorite? We not only love it at first bite, but we continue to buy it and enjoy it on a regular basis.

    belVita has expanded the concept with a new grab-and-go option, belVita Breakfast Bites. The nutritious, pre-portioned packages are portable and poppable. They’re available in two flavors, Chocolate and Mixed Berry. Each 50g package contains 230 calories, 20g of whole grain and 4g fiber.

    Pair belVita Breakfast Bites with a yogurt or piece of fruit for a more complete breakfast. Or at the very least, try it instead of the not-so-good-for-you breakfast pastry, donut, bagel, etc.

    Personally, we’ll stick with the larger belVita biscuits, a.k.a. cookies. But if you like to nibble, try belVita Breakfast Bites.

     

    belVita Breakfast Bites are baked with high quality, wholesome and were developed to provide four 4 hours of nutritious steady energy when eaten as part of a complete breakfast. Each 50g serving (one pouch) includes:

  • 4g of fiber*
  • 20g of whole grain

    The line is certified kosher by OU. Discover more at belVitaBreakfast.com.

     
    *Contains 7-8g fat per serving, depending on flavor.

    TIP OF THE DAY: Baked Oatmeal With Blueberries & Almonds

    Last year we published a recipe for baked oatmeal with strawberries. It was a big hit.

    Here’s a baked oatmeal dish with a different flavor profile: blueberry and almond, courtesy of the London-based blog, Pip & Little Blue. You’ll find many other delicious recipes on the website.

    “Pip” created this recipe to be heart-healthy, child-friendly and easy to make. “It has to be both one of the yummiest and healthiest breakfasts in my repertoire,” she says. “It may feel like you’re indulging and eating cake for breakfast, but this is jam-packed full of blueberries, oats, soy milk and almonds, all proven to be good for your heart and low in fat to boot. Way way better than [plain] porridge [see note below].

    You can reheat slices in the microwave at home or at work, for a nutritious breakfast every day in 30 seconds.

    RECIPE: BLUEBERRY & ALMOND BAKED OATMEAL

    Ingredients For 8 Servings

  • 1/2 cup butter (plus extra for greasing)*
  • 2/3 cup soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 2 cups cow’s milk or soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats†
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder**
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 cup flaked almonds
  •    

    baked-oatmeal-pipandlittleblue-230

    It may look like cake, but it’s baked oatmeal for breakfast! You can use an oblong pan, but doesn’t the oatmeal look prettier in a round one? Photo © Pip & Little Blue.

     
    *Substitute margarine for a heart-healthy version, or dairy-free spread for a dairy-free version. (Many margarines have small amounts of dairy- or milk-derived ingredients in them.)

    †For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free certified oats and gluten-free baking powder.

     

    blueberries-basket-balduccis-230sq

    Fresh blueberries are not in season until summer. Instead of pricey imports, consider buying frozen blueberries. If they’re not sweet enough for you, toss them in your sweetener of choice before adding them to the recipe.

     

    Preparation

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 375°F/190°C and grease a deep 9-inch baking pan or deep dish.

    2. CREAM together the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Stir in the oats, ground almonds, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until all the ingredients are incorporated.

    3. ARRANGE 1 cup of blueberries on the bottom of your baking dish. Spoon the oatmeal mixture on top, even the surface out and scatter the flaked almonds and remaining blueberries on top.

    4. BAKE for 40-45 minutes, or until the oatmeal is springy and golden on top. Serve warm , with extra fruit or a splash of milk.
     
    WHAT IS PORRIDGE?

    Porridge is a dish made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped cereal grains in water or milk. Optional flavorings can be added, from spices to fruits or cheese.

    Porridge is usually served hot for breakfast, in a bowl or dish. It may be sweetened with sugar or served as a savory dish (cheese grits is an example).

     

    Any cereal grain can be turned into porridge. Buckwheat, oats, wheat (Cream of Wheat, Wheatena) and rice (Cream of Rice) are most popular in the U.S. Worldwide, barley, fonio, maize, millet, rice, rye, sorghum, triticale and quinoa are also made into porridge.

    TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: CedarLane Egg White Omelettes

    It’s a new year and you’ve resolved to eat better. Get started by eating a good breakfast.

    We flipped for CedarLane’s Egg White Omelettes, which go from freezer to plate in 4-1/2 microwave minutes. Eat them directly from the paper baking dish—no dish washing required.

    You’ll benefit from 18-23 g of protein (depending on the variety) and all-natural ingredients. The calories range from 230 to 300 (the latter includes turkey bacon).

    While these are egg white omelettes, made without the cholesterol-laden egg yolks, you wouldn’t know it. They both look and taste like the whole egg, conventionally yellow and very flavorful. They do, however, contain cholesterol from the cheese (and the turkey bacon), but it’s a net savings over a whole egg omelette.

    spinach-omelete-plate-230

    Each variety is delicious. Here, the popular spinach omelette. Photo courtesy CedarLane.

     

    Tender and tasty, the options include:
    The omelettes are available in four delicious flavors, so well seasoned, they don’t even need a shake of salt.

  • Garden Vegetable & Mozzarella Egg White Omelette: mozzarella cheese and a garden full of veggies—potatoes, red onions, green and red bell peppers, zucchini and tomatoes.
  • Green Chile, Cheese & Ranchero Sauce Egg White Omelette: green chiles and cheddar cheese topped with a delectable ranchero sauce. Not hot or spicy, just delicious.
  • Spinach and Mushroom Egg White Omelette: spinach, mushrooms and both mozzarella and feta cheeses.
  • Uncured Turkey Bacon, Vegetable & Cheese Egg White Omelette: turkey bacon with potatoes, bell peppers, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.
  •  

    Beyond breakfast, the omelettes are delicious for lunch or a light dinner with a big salad.

    Each individual-portion box has an SRP of $5.00. Learn more at CedarLaneFoods.com.
     
    OMELETTE VS. OMELET?

    It’s French versus British spelling. Both are correct: Omelet is easier to spell while omelette is more elegant.

    Stuffed_French_Toast_SpiceIslands-230

    Eggnog French toast looks like the regular kind, but packs a punch of extra flavor. Photo courtesy Spice Islands.

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract

  • Optional garnish: confectioners’ sugar, berries
  • Maple syrup
  • Preparation

    1. BEAT the eggs, eggnog, sugar and extract in a bowl. Soak the bread in the mixture for 2 minutes per side.

    2. COOK on a greased hot griddle until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.

    3. DUST with confectioners’ sugar if desired, and serve with syrup and optional berries.
