Breakfast Recipes for your Timeshare Kitchen

When you rent a timeshare for your family's vacation, you know that you're getting budget accommodations at a luxury resort; you're getting the many amenities that the resort has to offer; you're getting spaciousness including real bedrooms, a living room and a dining area; and - you're getting a fully-equipped kitchen.

For many of you wives and moms, the idea of vacationing someplace with a kitchen may not be exactly the dream vacation you had in mind. But, you ARE going to save money on the meals that your family does not HAVE to eat out. And, you are going to enjoy the convenience of being able to give your tousle-headed tribe breakfast without the hassle of getting everyone up and showered and dressed and out the door just for a bite to eat.

This is your vacation, too, so the meals you prepare in your timeshare kitchen need to be quick and easy, as well as filling and nutritious.

"Taste of Home" has some easy breakfast recipes that are perfect for adapting to your family timeshare vacation. These are quick, yummy, and use basic ingredients. Here are a couple:

Raspberry-Cinnamon French Toast - easy factor: make up the night before.

  • 12 slices cinnamon bread, cubed
  • 5 eggs, beaten

  • Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Sprinkle almonds over egg mixture. Combine butter and remaining brown sugar; drizzle over the top.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with raspberries. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 6-8 servings.
