Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen this Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches a few weeks back. It just so happens to be a family favorite in all it's cheesy, eggy, bacony, goodness!

Since we all know breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day these Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches are perfect when you need a portable meal on the go, but tasty enough for a lazy weekend at home.

Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches are composed of sourdough bread, a layer of cheese which just happens to be pepper jack on this occasion, a few slices of bacon, 2 fried eggs or scrambled if your prefer, another slice of cheese if desired, sandwiched between another slice of sourdough bread, and then grilled to golden delicious perfection!

These are totally and utterly delicious!

Whiskey Burgers

This weeks #SundaySupper theme is Hamburgers & Hot Dogs so after some careful deliberation with Colt we settled on Whiskey Burgers. It's a simple burger patty, covered with your favorite cheese, bacon, and a whiskey barbecue sauce! 

Of course by dinner time after I had made Cheddar Cheese Hamburger Buns for the Whiskey Burgers we ended up with a thunder storm so Colt fried the burgers in the cast iron skillet. It was a much safer route then turning Colt into a human lightening bolt! 

However, I will attest Whiskey Burgers are by far a household year around favorite burger whether we grill them or fry them on the stove. Let's just say I'm a huge fan!

Cheddar Cheese Hamburger Buns

I love a good burger, and one of the important things to a good burger starts with the right bun. Cheddar Cheese Hamburger Buns are crusty, chewy, with plenty of cheddar cheese flavor making them the perfect vessel for loading with a hearty hamburger patty, and all the makings. 

Homemade Cheddar Cheese Hamburger Buns are actually fairly easy to make, other then a bit time consuming, but you'll quickly find them worth the effort.

Peach Whiskey Iced Tea

Peach Whiskey Iced Tea
Colt and I were out shopping last weekend when the fresh peaches at the grocery store drew us in with their mesmerizing smell. I had already planned on making a Frozen Peach Cheesecake I will be sharing on Sunday, but Colt thought a cocktail was in order. After a little bit of back and forth brainstorming we decided a Peach Whiskey Iced Tea would hit the spot at the end of a hot day! 

Why make plain Iced Tea when Peach Iced Tea will take your taste buds to a whole other level.

The sweet juicy peaches combined with the black tea makes a wonderful treat on a hot summers day. Add a shot of Whiskey for adults, and you have a fun cocktail.  Not only perfect for parties, but to just sit back and enjoy. 

Peach Whiskey Iced Tea is the perfect end to the perfect day.

Strawberries and Cream Protein Shake
Protein Shakes have been a go to breakfast or mid day snack item in our house for as long as I can remember.

I was excited to receive a Genuine Thermos® Brand #ShakerBottle for review, I've tried a few shaker bottles over the years, but non were as easy to clean as this one. Everything about it was made for easy to clean up. The integrated mixer is designed in such a way it's super easy to clean even when adding additional flavors to your protein shake like bits of strawberry, and breaks up the protein perfectly. It's constructed of durable plastic which is BPA-Free, and the lid snaps down tightly to prevent a mess while shaking. The lid also has an integrated carrying loop making it easy to grab on the go! Currently Thermos® Brand is having a promotion to Giveaway a Shaker Bottle on their Facebook Page, make sure to stop by to enter to win! 
Strawberries and Cream Protein Shake starts off with muddling strawberries! serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com
Strawberries and Cream Protein Shake starts off with muddling 6 chopped Strawberries in the bottom of the Thermos® Brand Protein Shaker. A muddler works great if you have one, but the handle of a wooden spoon or fork is also perfect to break up the strawberries in tiny bits! For a Raspberries and Cream Protein Shake substitute with Raspberries to a little over the 4 ounce mark.
Strawberries and Cream Protein Shake add milk.
Add Almond Milk or other favorite milk product (dairy free or regular milk) until the 16 ounce mark.
