Lemon Pepper Seasoning

I am finishing up on some Christmas gifts and made a few seasonings today.  One of which is a lemon pepper seasoning.  This will be great on fish or chicken; actually I can’t really think of anything it wouldn’t be good on even vegetables would be delicious with this combination.DSCN3422 (480x640)

  • 1 Tbs lemon zest ~ dehydrate if making ahead
  • 1 Tbs black peppercorns
  • 1 Tbs french thyme
  • 2 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp paprika

In spice grinder combine lemon zest, peppercorns, and thyme until desired size.  Combine with remaining ingredients and use as seasoning for your favorite foods.

Mini French Toast Casseroles

Thought I would try a make ahead casserole for breakfast today.  Last night I made this and refrigerated until morning.  I liked the way it came out.  It could have used a little more flavor perhaps some fruit or maybe served with a little syrup; we just had it plain.  The recipe is for each casserole; it was actually more than I could eat which surprised me as I can easily eat 2 pieces of regular french toast.  Just multiply the recipe to make as many as desired.

Mini French Toast Casseroles

Generously butter individual casserole.  Spread brown sugar in bottom of casserole and sprinkle with cinnamon.
