  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • crisp bacon bits – garnish
  • maple syrup – garnish

Blueberry Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/4 cup of water, orange juice, and sugar. Stir gently, and bring to a boil.

In a cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water.

Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking.

*vanilla sugar: 2 cups granulated sugar and 1 vanilla bean split open. Mix both together and shake for a few days until vanilla perfumes the sugar.
