Sweet Apricot Breakfast

IMG_4363

Mornings that are this  sweet are lovely indeed, and don’t happen often enough–usually on a holiday, which this isn’t.  So I’m going to really enjoy it for its rarity.  I’m going to just take it easy, prolonging that first cup of coffee.  I’m feeling really mellow so maybe I’ll roast up some of those nice apricots and have them with some fruity yogurt and crunchy granola cereal.  Who says weekend mornings have to be about bacon and eggs, anyway?

Would you like to come along while I make this breakfast?

The first thing you must do is turn on the oven.  to broil..  get it good and hot…Don’t worry, it won’t be on long.  Now cut a few apricots in half, and dip the cut sides into a little granulated sugar.  Arrange them on a baking sheet and place them under the broiler.  Hang around near the oven and keep an eye on them so they don’t get burned.  Once they’re browned and bubbly, take them out to cool a little.

Now comes the best part:  place a few spoonfuls of fruity yogurt on a small plate.   (I’m using lemon). Top with the warm, roasted apricots and sprinkle generously with granola.  Top with fresh strawberries, or blueberries and enjoy!      Easy-peasy breakfast for a lazy morning.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.   Excuse me now, while I put my feet up and have another cup of coffee.  Have a great weekend!

  1. Indeed! Breakfasts like these are the healthiest. I love having a good luxurious gronola and yogurt too. LOL. Roasted fruit is definitely an added plus, almost gourmet in my books.
