February was National Hot Breakfast Month. Nationwide, food retailers were encouraging everyone to start their day with a warm meal. I couldn’t agree more because there are so many benefits to eating a hot breakfast. Number one, breakfast foods help fuel the body and provide a sharper focus while boosting the metabolism.
In support of this initiative, I hosted a lifestyle segment live from my kitchen! It was a lot of fun because I was able to inspire the local Huntsville audience with a delicious meal.
Julian’s Recipe Blueberry & Brie Melt
- 1 ½ cups blueberries
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 8 Julian’s Recipe Wafels
- 4 ounces of brie cheese, thinly sliced
Combine the blueberries, lemon zest and sugar in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer for about 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened.
Place the butter in a grill pan over medium-high heat. Then place your wafels into the pan.
Add 4-5 slices of brie cheese on top followed by a generous scoop of the blueberry compote.
Add the second wafel on top and then flip! Allow 2-3 minutes per side or until golden.
Serve while hot and enjoy!
