Stephanie over at Dispensing Happiness hosts a really cool monthly blog event called Blog Party. It's a virtual cocktail party for foodies to get together and enjoy some fun, food and recipes. When I saw the theme for this month I knew I had to drop by. A "Brunch" cocktail party? What fun! Here are the goodies I whipped up for the event...
Oatmeal Banana Smoothie
1 frozen banana
3/4 c. vanilla soy milk
1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1 Tbsp. ground flax seed
1/2 c. maple flavored yogurt
2 Tbsp. honey
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Makes two "cocktail size" servings.
Bacon Parmesan English Muffins
2 English muffins, split and buttered
2 slices turkey bacon (or regular bacon) cooked, drained and cut in half
Fresh Parmesan or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shaved
Broil English muffins in oven or toaster oven until lightly toasted. Add two half bacon slices and several shaving of cheese to each then return to broiler until cheese melts. Serve warm. Makes 2 servings.
