Friday Favorites – Week 332 – With Breakfast Delights

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s Friday Favorites party! This week I’ve been busy preparing for our son’s first day of school next week.  We’ve paid his school fees, picked up his schedule, purchased clothes and shoes, and tomorrow I’m picking up the rest of his school supplies.  With all this back to school preparation, I’ve got breakfast ideas on my mind, so this week I’m featuring a few yummy “breakfast delights.”  Not only would these make for some yummy breakfasts for the kids, but they would also make great mid-morning or mid-afternoon snacks for Mom!  Hope you enjoy them!

Blueberry Cheesecake Fresh from Florida

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fresh From Florida for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Being from the south, I love eating produce Fresh From Florida.  The spring time is a perfect time for dishes made with fresh fruit.  Fruit is so versatile! It can be used in everything from salads and appetizers to dessert!  Spring is an especially great time for berries, especially blueberries!

Blueberry Muffins are always a delicious breakfast treat, and blueberries are also great to place on top of cake, layer in to parfaits, and put in cobblers!

Personally I love a good cheesecake any day of the week and it can only be made better with a little blueberry on top!  Today I have a recipe to share for a delicious Blueberry Cheesecake. Check it out!


Recipe for Florida Blueberry Cheesecake:


1 whole cheesecake (homemade or store bought)

4 pints Florida blueberries, rinsed

½ lemon, juiced

1 cup water

1 cup natural Florida sugar

Fresh mint sprigs for garnish

Directions: In a small sauce pot, combine 2 pints blueberries, sugar, lemon juice and water. Place sauce pot over medium high heat. Stir contents of pot as it comes to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cook blueberry mixture for 20 minutes or until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain blueberry sauce through a sieve if desired.

Let blueberry sauce cool to room temperature, and store in the refrigerator until needed. Top the cheesecake with some of the cooled blueberry sauce, leaving extra for garnish. Place fresh leftover blueberries on top of the cheesecake and garnish with fresh mint. Serve the blueberry topped cheesecake with extra blueberry sauce. (Serves 6 to 12 people.)

You can find Fresh From Florida on Facebook and also follow them on Fresh From Florida on Twitter for updates and product information.

French Toast Casserole with Blueberry Syrup

Breakfast can be a real challenge.  Not only do you have to fight to get everyone awake and ready to start their day, but you have to find something that everyone loves to eat.  Cereal is a simple go-to item, but there’s nothing like a hot breakfast.  But let’s face it, the traditional favorites like bacon, eggs, and pancakes can also get old.  But you can change it up with a nice breakfast casserole. The folks at Recipe Rehab recently shared some breakfast recipes to help get out the usual breakfast routine, including a delicious looking French Toast Casserole with Blueberry Syrup.  Check it out!
