Last week we featured our new fall lunch dishes... and have loved hearing about the wild ways you are introducing them to your kids! But if you were left wondering about the most important meal of the day, we sure have a treat for you. New breakfast and snack items are coming your way. From our Cheesy Olive Bread to our Pumpkin French Toast Bake, read on to read all about the ingredients and inspiration of our newest dishes!
Cheesy Olive Bread - Need we say more? On our ever present mission to craft snacks with minimal amounts of sugar - we were inspired by local Italian bakeries in the depths of the Bronx and Brooklyn. Every thing you expect (whole wheat flour, eggs, yogurt, baking powder, milk, vegetable oil, cheddar cheese, sliced green olives, salt) with nothing your kids don't need (stabilizers or anything you can't pronounce) - we hope this new treat is as big a hit at your house as an olive loaf is at ours!
Butternut Squash Goodness - Have you noticed how much we are loving butternut squash this year? Back again from last year - natures sweetness comes out in force when we blend slow roasted butternut squash in with our special apple sauce. Apprehensive? If you have any trouble getting your kids to try it- just have them pinch a little cinnamon on top to make it a fun activity for all!
Cucumbers with Green Goddess Dressing - Typically the announcement of sending cucumbers for snack would not be blogworthy... but have you tried our Green Goddess Dressing? It's no surprise that we at Red Rabbit are passionate about eating vegetables - so we've modified our Veggie party a bit, and are sending some crisp cucumber speaks. The real star of the show is the creamy Green Goddess Dressing. We take garlic, mayo, sour cream, garbanzo beans, lots of basil and parsley, lemon juice, and a dash of soy sauce and blend it all up until it ends up as a vibrant green color. Invite the kids to dip the veggies right into the dressing for optimal tastiness! If you want to make the recipe at home, check out the Green Goddess Dressing recipe.
Pumpkin French Toast Bake - The inspiration from this dish came from Chef Liliana's family holiday get togethers - and one bite will have you dreaming of curling up on the couch with your family to devour this delicious bake. Designed to be eaten cold (but we won't blame you if you throw it in the oven for a minute), imagine layers of whole wheat bread, dipped in an egg batter, and baked into a buoyant bread. The "icing on the cake"? Whole, fresh pumpkin baked, pureed and layered in between each slice.
