3. Amish Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Frosting

Breakfast couldn't get yummier than caramel topped cinnamon rolls! To make cinnamon rolls healthier and a lot tastier, this recipe for Amish Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Frosting adds canned pumpkin (or fresh cooked pumpkin) to the batter.

Yields: 12


For Dough:
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin or mashed cooked pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 package dry yeast
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted butter

For Caramel Frosting:
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch salt
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar, sifted

For Dough: In small saucepan, heat milk and butter just until warm (120-130 degrees) and butter is almost melted, stirring constantly.
In large mixer bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar and salt.
Add milk mixture to pumpkin and beat with electric mixer until well mixed. Beat in egg and yeast.
In separate mixing bowl, combine flours. Add half of flour mixture to pumpkin mixture. Beat mixture on low speed 5 minutes, scraping sides of bowl frequently. Add remaining flour and mix thoroughly (dough will be very soft).
Turn dough into lightly greased bowl, then grease surface of dough lightly. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto floured surface. Knead a few turns to form a smooth dough, sprinkling with enough additional flour to make dough easy to handle.
On lightly floured surface, roll dough into 12x10-inch rectangle.
In small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Brush surface of dough with melted butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar mixture.
Beginning with long side of dough, roll up jelly roll style. Pinch seam to seal. With sharp knife, cut roll into 12 slices, about 1 inch wide each. Place rolls, cut side up, in greased 9x9-inch baking pan.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover rolls and let rise until nearly doubled, 30 to 45 minutes.
Bake rolls at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until golden.
Remove from pan to waxed paper-lined wire rack. Cool 10 to 15 minutes.
For Caramel Frosting: In small saucepan, heat butter until melted.
Stir in brown sugar and milk. Cook over medium low heat 1 minute. Transfer to small mixer bowl and cool mixture.
Stir in vanilla, salt, and confectioners' sugar. Beat with electric mixer until well blended. If necessary, add more confectioners' sugar for desired consistency.
Drizzle caramel frosting over cinnamon rolls.

4. Arugula & Chicken Sausage Bread Pudding

Source: EatingWell

Active Time:  30 Minutes
Total Time:  1 Hour 45 Minutes
Yield:  6 servings

Chicken sausage comes in a variety of flavors these days. The flavor you pick will have a big impact, so make sure you pick one you like. We tried and liked sweet Italian, apple and Chardonnay sausage and sun-dried tomato and spinach sausage in this recipe.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the pudding through Step 3; refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature while the oven preheats. Bake as directed in Step 4.

For Custard:
4   large
egg whites
4   large
1 cup  skim

For Seasonings:
2 tablespoons  Dijon
1/4 teaspoon  
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground
1/2 cup  sliced fresh

For Bread & filling:
4 cups  whole-grain bread, crusts removed if desired, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 1/2 pound, 4-6 slices)
5 cups  chopped arugula, wilted (see Tip)
3/4 cup  chopped artichoke hearts, frozen (thawed) or canned
1 cup  diced cooked
chicken sausage (5 ounces)

For Topping:
3/4 cup  shredded
fontina cheese

To wilt greens, rinse greens thoroughly in cool water. Transfer them to a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and punch several holes in the wrap. Microwave on high until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the greens before adding them to the recipe.

DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an 11-by-7-inch glass baking dish or a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray.

To prepare custard: Whisk egg whites, eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Add mustard, salt, pepper and basil: whisk to combine.

Toss bread, arugula, artichokes and sausage in a large bowl. Add the custard and toss well to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and push down to compact. Cover with foil.

Bake until the custard has set, 40 to 45 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and continue baking until the pudding is puffed and golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
