Customized pizzas are the best kind of pizzas! Don’t forget to add your favorite toppings and ingredients like pepper varieties, mushrooms, tomatoes, extra meats and specialty cheeses to this great recipe!

Here is our basic sausage and egg breakfast pizza recipe.

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Pizza Recipe

~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

~Cook in nonstick skillet or sprayed cast iron 10 inch, warm 8 oz. of brown and serve pork sausage. (We prefer links cut into 1/2 inch pieces, it works the best.) Links take 3-4 minutes to warm. Remove sausage from skillet & drain.

~ Whisk 6-8 beaten eggs into warm skillet. With spatula, gently fluff and lift small portions of cooked eggs from the bottom of the skillet. (As to not stir.) Cook additional 5 minutes. Eggs should be moist/ soft but thoroughly cooked through.

~Place 2 (8 ounce) ready- to -serve pizza crusts on ungreased cookie sheets.

~Between the two crusts divide eggs, cooked link slices and top with 1 cup of cheddar cheese on each pizza. *Don’t forget to add your favorite toppings.

~Bake 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted.

This recipe is so simple, yet delicious. Take note, that this works on mini’s, “pop” biscuit pizzas, and also on pita breads. (Makes about 6). A great way to make single servings for students or individual kids breakfast pizzas.

DIY Cloud Sand Dough Sensory Bin with Recipe

Photo by Kaboompics .com on Pexels.com

Children LOVE sand. Hours at the park, beach or in the back yard sandbox accumulates a large portion of our summer for the littles. To my surprise, while working at a preschool, the private school center actually did NOT allow the children to play in an outdoor sandbox due to safety precautions. As wild as that sounds, that did not deter us from bring sandboxes inside. Throughout the years there have been so many “new” products introduced on the market, and to another surprise teachers pay SO MUCH for these products to save time and energy. As a teacher, I loved seasons. I would get as creative as possible to “create” our own sensory bins while utilizing inexpensive everyday products that most homes or center already obtain. As creative with textures and visuals as we could be, we still get asked time and time again about a moon sand type recipe we have used for years. Although, I believe the texture is a bit different, this recipe can fill a bin for pennies if your center or home has the proper ingredients already. HERE it is:

Cloud Sand Dough

As you can gather, this recipe is a base recipe I use for the large clear totes that fit under the bed. We have done a pond unit for homeschool & preschool and place 1/2 the pool with this sand dough and it’s critters. The remaining half split with water gel beads and local rocks we collected from a previous unit.

I LOVE having activities out where the children enjoy learning without the structure. Kids love to learn naturally and through exploration & it’s such a joy to watch and be apart of!

Happy Teaching & Happy Homeschooling!

Ultimate French Toast Recipe

~In a round baking pan beat 6 eggs. Add 5 Tablespoons of whole milk. Blend with fork.

~Gently add a splash of vanilla extract and a couple drops of almond extract. Mix.

~Top off your batter with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. (I only add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, dip a few slices, then add 1/4 more as it dwindles down.)

With a sprayed hot griddle or cast iron pan with a splash of olive oil, dip slices of your favorite bread in the batter. Turn and do the same on the other side.

~Next, place on the hot griddle. Brown, then flip.

~Once both sides are brown, remove and do the same with the next batch. Serve HOT with fresh churned butter and local maple syrup from your local foods store or farmer. AMAZING!!! So good!

Indeed there are many ways to make french toast; however this is my favorite because:

  1. You can substitute seasonings. My kids love the bakery apple pie seasoning, pumpkin pie seasoning and cardamom as well. Have fun & change it up. It is still delicious!!!
  2. Although we are fans of fresh churned butter and our fresh maple syrup most of all; we have also used a variety of toppings. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, thimbleberry syrup, honey, sprinkled powdered sugar, fruit whip, yogurt or cool whip are some of the few choices!!!
  3. Speaking of substitutes, how about the bread. Sliced hoagies are among my children’s favorites. The thick bread soaks in the small sliced, filling them with delicious flavor. Others include: french bread, sour dough (apple sour bread is AMAZING as french toast), cinnamon raisin or fruit breads work well too! (Even zucchini bread)

As you can see, with all these options, this is why we rank this recipe at the top of French toast recipes!

To improve overall taste, make with fresh brown eggs!!! Note that depending on the bread you select, this usually feeds 1 adult & 4 children. I do double the recipe if a thick heavy bread that will soak up a large amount of batter. Happy Homemaking!!!
