Breakfast and Brunch

Crisp, Sweet and What a Treat…

Wow, where did the weekend go?! I feel like I just posted that gross restaurant in China and here it is already Sunday night. Well, so much for my “trying to eat light” before NY plan. I was doing so good until this weekend. We ate pasta until we busted tonight at my father-in-laws, I feel like a stuffed pig. Back to my plan first thing Monday!!

Ok, these peach berry crisps are a must try. With only a few ingredients, you’ll have this recipe in the oven in about 15 minutes. I used crisped blueberry bagels for the topping that is tossed with melted butter and sugar. Talk about heaven. The strawberries and peaches are warm, soft and sweet underneath the crisp buttery bagel topping. Please do yourself a favor and top your bowl with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. This is great for dessert or brunch. Enjoy!

I love when the cream starts melting down, watch each picture get tastier and tastier with the little river of cream.

Warm Peach Berry Bagel Crisp

2 whole blueberry bagels, halved (I used Chompies from Walmart)

1 lb hulled and quartered strawberries

1 lb fresh or jarred peeled, cubed peaches

½ Cup powdered sugar

2 ½ Tablespoons sugar

¼ Cup melted butter

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place bagel halves cut sides up onto a baking sheet and bake until well crisped, about 15 minutes. Let cool, then place in food processor and pulse until broken into small pieces not completely ground. Place strawberries, peaches, 1 Cup of bagel pieces and powdered sugar into a large bowl; toss to combine. Transfer to a 7×11 inch baking dish/pyrex. Place remaining bagel crumbs, sugar and melted butter into a bowl to combine. Sprinkle over top of fruit. Bake for 30 minutes or until crust is browned and fruit is softened. Serve in individual bowls and top with ice cream or fresh whipped cream (1 Cup heavy cream whipped with 1 Tbsp powdered sugar until light and fluffy).

4 servings

    Heaven in a dish! Fresh peaches are at their prime at the farm stands here now….strawberries…here’s hoping the grocery store has some good looking ones.
    That’s one great looking combo Ms. Jenny!
    And as far as portion control and trying to be good? I always start out doing great….then something happens and it all goes out the window…..oh well, there’s always tomorrow!!!! 🙂
    So you’re heading East huh? Fall’s a great time to be here…..

    Hi Emily,
    This was such a treat with the blueberry bagels warm and crisp! Have a great day!

    Thanks Pam,
    Me too, they are so comforting.

    Thanks my Sweet and saucy!

    Hi Shelby,
    Me too, I’m a sucker for warm sweet cream!

    Yes Rita,
    I am totally counting down the days, I’ve got a zillion things to do before then so I better get off this computer!

    Hi Mary Ann,
    I could totally kick myself. I only bought 2 the first trip to Walmart then realized I wanted to get more and now I can’t find them anywhere! It’s my own fault.

    Yes Lisa,
    If it weren’t for the weekends I’d be doing just fine! I like to go out to dinner far too much to give it up!

    Thanks Carol,
    I managed to find some good strawberries, but like someone else said, any fruit in season would be great in this dish! I am excited to go out east, it will be a first for my sister and I!

    Thanks Patsy,
    I’ll be sure to share some pictures. I can’t wait to go to Levain Bakery, it’s so famous amongst us food bloggers!

    Hi Beth,
    Yep, I think any good fruit in season would be great.

    Hi Katrina,
    This is a great super easy treat. If you serve it at an enrichment just make sure it stays nice and warm somehow. It’s so great with the cold ice cream or whipped cream melting down the sides.

    Hi Meg,
    I might just make the crisp bagel topping for breakfast! Drats, that would not go along with my program this week.

    Thanks Maria!

    Thanks Stephanie,
    Good luck with your workouts too! I need it!
