Treat yourself with your own personal breakfast pizza. A whole pita topped with pesto, mozzarella, bacon, and a fried egg.
I love college football, it’s full of so many surprises. Part of the tension and excitement yesterday was due to Ohio State’s battle against Minnesota and while I enjoy a close game it still made me nervous and had several outbursts. But once that win was clinched I sat back to watch the rest of the games unfold and there were definitely plenty to pick from. I can only hope that due to a few choice upsets, Ohio State’s potential to get into the college football playoffs has increased.
But I digress for the sake of those of you who could care less about college football.
Make your own personal breakfast pizza using a pita! I’ve posted a pizza for one recipe complete with a mini from scratch pizza crust in the past, but today I made things simpler by throwing Breakfast-y toppings onto a pita. This would also work on a bagel or English muffin. My favorite part of course was the oozy egg yolk.

Is it breakfast for dinner, or dinner for breakfast? Enjoy these breakfast nachos any time of day with a homemade Greek yogurt hollandaise sauce.
I have a confession to make. You know that egg dish commonly cooked for breakfast that starts with an “O”? Well I have been misspelling it my entire life. I have been spelling it phonetically as “omlet” and I swear I must have seen it written as such before or else it would not have been solidified in my brain. How many times have I ordered that dish at a restaurant and not noticed the spelling? News flash! It’s spelled “omelette” which in my opinion has too many e’s. Although upon further digging is appears that it may also be spelled “omelet” which is more tolerable. Unfortunately I was not consulted when they were working out the English language.
Today I did not make an omelet/omelette/omlet or however you want to spell it. I made nachos because today is national nachos day, and why not start celebrating early with nachos for breakfast. It’s not an omelet but it is breakfast food that involves eggs, cheese, and bacon. Oh and a homemade hollandaise sauce made with Greek yogurt.

You favorite combination of peanut butter and chocolate gets a third party – bacon! Salty and sweet is never a bad thing.
Today in college football, Ohio State plays Penn State and although it is not a rivalry it’s close enough to make it a big game regardless of each teams ranking. And it just so happens to also be National Greasy Foods Day, which is perfect for football. But since I like to celebrate my Saturdays with peanut butter and chocolate in the spirit of my buckeyes, I made a peanut butter and chocolate treat that incorporated the best greasy food item ever – bacon! After falling in love with the peanut butter bacon burger this was bound to happen. It’s not like I haven’t made cupcakes and cookies with bacon before. It is sweet and salty goodness.
Last but not least, the icing on the cake for today is my arrival in Seattle! I am visiting my friend Chip who recently moved there and then the next couple days I am going hog wild with Peabody (Culinary Concoctions by Peabody) and Kita (Pass the Sushi/Girl Carnivore)! It shall be full of deliciousness and merriment. And for a fun story for how this trip came to be, check out Peabody’s post.

Reinvent your favorite jalapeno poppers with a spicy pepperjack macaroni and cheese stuffing and wrapped in bacon. Now that’s football watching food!
Fall not only brings typical flavors of apple and pumpkin but also snacking season. Dips, chips, meat, cheese, and fried things. No football game is complete without some great snacks and what better than something that involved, bacon, cheese, and spice? I am sure you’ve had or at least heard of jalapeno poppers before. But instead of the cream cheese mixture how about reinventing them with a macaroni and cheese stuffing? A spicy, creamy mac and cheese made with The Laughing Cow® spicy pepperjack cheese, spooned into a jalapeno half, wrapped in bacon and then baked to crispy perfection.
