Homemade Cinnamon Scrolls

Cinnamon scrolls 1 logo.jpg
Makes:  9 Cinnamon Scrolls

I love fresh bread and it’s so easy to make your own baked bread at home not to mention healthier too.
Some days I really fancied a cinnamon scroll and there just weren’t any recipes that stood out to me. So I came up with my own using a basic sweet dough recipe. The bread improver just helps it rise more and gives it a softer texture too but you don’t have to use it.

Healthier Baked Corn Dog Recipe

Corn Dog Recipe
Makes 8 Corndogs

There’s nothing better than fair food. At Australian festivals or local fairs, corn dogs are referred to as dagwood dogs. Let’s face it, anything that is deep fried and on a stick is the best thing ever. But when you’re trying to take it easy on the fried food, sometimes the cravings can be pretty full on. So I came up with this baked corn dog recipe! Same great taste as a corn dog but without all the deep-fried batter and all the calories.

Juicy Homemade Chicken Schnitzels

Juicy Chicken Schnitzels
Makes 4 Chicken Schnitzels

For as long as I can remember chicken schnitzels have been an absolute family favourite in my household. My mother usually makes this with Crumb in One premade breadcrumb mix available here in Australia. So if you can buy prepacked Crumb in one in your local shop then go ahead and use them! Oh, and the leftover egg and bread crumbs can be used to make my delicious crumb cakes!

Sandwich Press Cheese and Bacon Hash Browns

Hash browns
Makes: 4 Hash Browns

This recipe was requested by a good friend of mine who wanted a “trash” or “garbage” recipe for his sandwich press. So I came up with this twist on classic Hash Browns. After some trial and error, I discovered that you can do so much in a sandwich press, like these super crispy hash browns! It actually amazed me while doing this dish how quickly you can achieve crispy bacon using a sandwich press!

This recipe is great as a snack or as a side with something like chicken schnitzel, chicken parmigiana or chicken kiev!

Crumb Cakes AKA “Crap Cakes”

Makes 6 Crumb Cakes

Don’t let the name fool you. These “crumb cakes” are delicious, savory pancakes. This recipe was created by my mother when I was very young and has ever since been a go-to side when we have leftover egg mixture and bread crumbs when making things like juicy chicken schnitzels, chicken kievs or eggplant parmesan. Basically, any recipe that results in leftover bread crumbs and egg equals crumb cake time! I mean, why waste those perfectly good seasoned bread crumbs? I personally like mine still a little bit gooey in the middle.
