Brunch Squares

36 tater tots
½ package cream cheese
8 eggs
3 green onions
Diced ham or sausage
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Place 3 tater tots in each well.  Mix cream cheese and eggs in batter bowl.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add meat and green onions to egg mixture.  Use large Scoop and place 1 scoop of mixture into each well.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Test with a knife to make sure eggs are set.

Egg Tarts in the Brownie Pan

• All-purpose flour, for dusting
• 1 1/3 sheets frozen puff pastry (18-ounce package), thawed
• 3 strips bacon
• 1 cup shredded havarti cheese
• 3 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
• 4 - 5 large eggs
• Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
• Chopped fresh chives, for topping
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and use the Kitchen Spritzer to lightly grease the Brownie Pan with vegetable oil. Open one puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured Pastry Mat or Flexible Cutting Mat. Use the Pizza Cutter to slice the sheet into nine equal squares, then cut 1/3 of the second sheet in the box apart for the remaining 3 squares needed to fill all 12 wells. Fit into the Brownie Pan and use the Hold ‘n Slice to prick all over the sides and bottom of each. Bake until golden, approximately 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, use the Microplane Adjustable Coarse Grater to shred the havarti cheese and the Fine Grater for the parmesan. Microwave the bacon in the Small Ridged Baker, covered with Parchment Paper, for approximately 4-5 minutes. Use the Mini Professional shears to snip the bacon into bits, and to cut the chives into a 1 cup Prep Bowl. Break the eggs into the Classic Batter Bowl, beat with Stainless Whisk, and season with salt and pepper.
Let the tart shells partially cool in the pan on the Stackable Cooling Rack. If the centers are very puffy, prick with a fork to deflate. Sprinkle evenly with the havarti and parmesan cheeses. Make a shallow well in the cheese in the center of each tart and use the Medium Scoop to pour egg into each. Top with the bacon, then return to the oven and bake until eggs are set, approximately 12 more minutes. Top with chives.


These are perfect to freeze and reheat on those ‘busy’ mornings!

Fake-Out Mini Lasagnas
From Rachel Ray

4 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
Salt and ground black pepper
24 ravioli, square or round depending on your muffin tin
1/2 pound ball fresh mozzarella, grated
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 bunch of basil leaves, about 24
Yields: 12 as a snack
Preheat oven to 325ºF.
Arrange tomato slices on a rack set over a sheet pan and drizzle with about 2 tablespoons EVOO. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and roast until tender and caramelized, about 45 minutes. Reserve.
While tomatoes are roasting, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt it and cook ravioli to package directions and drain.
Raise oven temp to 375°F.
Build mini lasagnas in the cups of a muffin tin - start with a ravioli, a roasted tomato, a sprinkle of mozzarella, a sprinkle of parm, 1 basil leaf, and repeat once. Reserve remaining basil leaves.

Mini Mac & Cheese Pies
Servings: 8
1 ½ cups Ritz Crackers, crushed (one sleeve of crackers)
2 cups white cheddar cheese, grated and divided
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
4 ½ cups cooked elbow macaroni (about 8 oz uncooked)
1 (5.2 oz) container of Boursin Garlic and Herb cheese
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold
2 large eggs
½ cup milk
¼ cup sour cream
¼ tsp salt  (cont. next page…)
Pinch red pepper flakes
Parsley, for garnish, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350.  Generously spray 8 cups of your brownie pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine the crushed crackers, 1 cup of the shredded cheese, and the melted butter; mix well until the mixture holds together and resembles coarse sand.  Divide the mixture among the 8 muffin cups and, using your fingers or the back of a spoon, firmly press the crust into the bottoms and up the sides of each well.
3. In another large bowl, combine the cooked (and still hot!) macaroni with ½ cup of the shredded white cheddar, the Boursin cheese, and the butter, mixing well.  In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, sour cream, salt and red pepper flakes, mixing well.  Add the egg/milk mixture to the cooked macaroni, mixing until all the ingredients are melted and smooth.
4. Place about 2-3 Tbsp of the macaroni mixture into each muffin cup (you will probably have a little leftover macaroni.  Save this and bake it separately, if desired.)  Top each cup with the remaining white cheddar cheese.  Bake the Mac and cheese pies until lightly golden on top, about 20-25 minutes.  Let cool slightly before removing from the brownie pan, garnish with parsley, and serve immediately.

12 perfectly shaped Mini Lasagnas (makes 2 trays)

1 lb hamburger
1 15oz container ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 box no-boil lasagna noodles
Italian seasoning
2 jars spaghetti sauce
Cheese (I used a combination of Mozzarella and Cheddar, but whatever you want)

Brown your hamburger. Put a small spoonful of sauce in the bottom of each brownie pan well. Shake pan to spread sauce around.  Break apart the lasagna noodles. Chances are, you will only get one perfect square out of each noodle, but don't throw away the broken pieces! You can still use them! Just piece them together to make a layer!  Place a layer of broken noodles on top of the sauce. Then add a small amount of burger. Mix the egg, ricotta, and Italian seasoning. Place a dollop of mixture on top of burger. Top with another layer of noodle.  Press down on the top layer of noodle. You need to have enough space to put another layer of sauce. The no-boil noodles require the moisture of the sauce so you don't want to skimp on it! Fill the well with sauce.  Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until the noodles are soft. Top with cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
Mini Omelets - dozen eggs and some milk whisked in Classic batter bowl... poured into the 12 wells... then add toppings of choice... chopped green pepper and onions, diced ham, mushrooms or tomatoes. Bake 375 for about 17-20 mins... flipped right out and topped with shredded cheese (swiss or cheddar). 
German Pancakes -Melt ¼ T. butter in each well of brownie pan. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Whisk together:  ½ c. flour, ½ c. milk, 3 eggs, pinch salt, capful of vanilla.  Divide mixture equally amongst 12 wells.  Bake 15 minutes.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with fruit pie filling of choice!  YUM!

I think you could use larger biscuits in the brownie pan, and I am sure I would add some garlic and maybe some other seasonings such as the “herbs de provence” or southwest.

1/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs), toasted
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

8 ounces lean ground pork
2 (4-ounce) links turkey Italian sausage, casings removed
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups lower-sodium marinara sauce

Healthy Dinner “Cupcakes”
Vegetable Oil
½ lb. ground turkey
½ cup zucchini, grated
1/3 cup finely chopped onions
¼ cup breadcrumbs
1 egg white
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic powder
1 cup mashed potatoes
¼ cup carrots, cooked and finely chopped
¼ cup cooked peas
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine the turkey, zucchini, onions, breadcrumbs, egg white, salt, and garlic powder.  Mix well to form a meatloaf mixture.  Lightly grease the wells of the Brownie Pan with vegetable oil.  Spoon the turkey mixture into the wells of the Brownie Pan so that each well is filled to the top, but not overflowing.  Smooth with a spoon so the tops are flat.
Place the turkey cupcakes in the oven and bake until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees, about 20-25 minutes.  Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool for a few minutes, and then carefully remove them from the pan.  You may want to use a nylon spatula or Small Mix N Scraper to gently loosen them before removing them.  Arrange the cupcakes on a plate and “frost” them with the mashed potatoes.  Finish the cupcakes by scattering carrot and pea “sprinkles” on top for decoration.

Double Berry Muffin Squares

1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
2 cups fresh blueberries & raspberries (may use frozen)

Almond Pound Cake

2 sticks butter, softened
6 eggs, at room temperature
3 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract (lemon or vanilla can be substituted)
Mix all ingredients together with an electric mixer. Spray Brownie Pan, and Bake at 325 for 30-35 min.

Individual Pretzel Cheesecakes:
About 20 Bavarian Pretzels
1/2 cup Butter (melted)
2 – 8 oz. packages of cream cheese
3/4 cups white granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup Sour Cream
1 T. vanilla extract
2T flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins – this recipe will make 24 muffin- sized cheesecakes.
You can grind up the pretzels to a graham cracker crust consistency if you like. I chose to leave them a little chunky because I wanted to be able to really bit into the pretzels. Mix the pretzel mixture with the melted butter. Stir to coat evenly.   Layer some of the pretzel mixture in the bottom of the greased muffin tins. You can also use paper muffin cups if you want to have them more like a cupcake or if you need to store them for a while. Set aside.
Next, you will be making the cheesecake filling.
In a mixer, blend together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.  Go ahead and add the remaining ingredients making sure they are all well blended until smooth. Pour into each muffin tin on top of the pretzel crust.  Time to pop them into the oven for approximately 20 – 25 minutes.  Allow to cool completely and then run a sharp knife around the edges to get the cheesecake out of the pan. Chill before serving.  These are the perfect mini dessert. Creamy cheesecake with a pretzel crust. The pretzel crust is NOT crunchy like a regular pretzel. Because it is mixed with the butter and cooked, it comes out kind of nutty and chewy.
Pineapple Angel Cake Muffins
1 large can Pineapple in its juice,
1 box Angel Food cake mix
Mix together.  Line Brownie Pan with cupcake liners (regular cupcake liners will go square when filled).  (Tip: you can spritz the liners with a little oil and it will help them to not stick to the food.)  Fill each using the Large Scoop and bake at 350 for 15 mins. Note: this makes 24 cupcakes and you need to do both pans at the same time.  If the batter sits too long it goes flat and icky.....
Serve with Whipped Cream or Ice Cream on top.  Plain, they are Weight Watcher’s-friendly.

Cream Cheese Filled Brownies
(Thanks Toshia Schmidt!)
Cream Cheese Filling:
8 oz cream cheese
2 T butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Bake plain brownies of your choice.  Mix together Cream Cheese Filling.  Remove brownies from Brownie Pan.  While brownies are still warm, make a slit in the side of them.  Use the Easy Accent Decorator, Decorator Bottle Set, or Wilton tip #230 to fill cream cheese mixture into the brownies.  If the brownies are really soft, it may not be necessary to make a slit in them.  Watch the tops and bottoms of the brownie as you fill it; you will see it grow as it gets full, so you’ll know when it’s filled enough.  Keep leftover brownies refrigerated.
