More bout day breakfasts!

This is just regular old sweet clafouti baked in two ramekins, otherwise known as half as much clafouti because they turned out so beautiful and I couldn't not let the sweetie man have one. Anyway, I don't think I specifically wrote instructions for using fresh apples in clafouti, I'm sure you could have figured it out, but here:

2 tablespoons butter
an apple
3 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup milk
greek yogurt
maple syrup

Heat over to 400 degrees.

Melt the butter in an ovenproof skillet over low heat. Peel the apple, and hey, pop the peels in the toaster oven for crispy apple sticks, chop up the apple, and toss it in the butter. Saute until softened, about five or ten minutes?

Beat together the eggs, flour, and milk, and you know what's great for this? My rocket blender that I use for smoothies, blend for thirty seconds. Pour the eggs over the apples in the pan.

(In this case I divided the apples between two buttered ramekins, then divided the eggs over the apples, then put the two ramekins in the oven on the cookie sheet that I was baking the bacon on. Which I burnt, oh well.)

Bake for 25 minutes. Run a heatproof rubber spatula around the edges and under the clafouti to release it from the pan (or ramekins).

Serve with a scoop of greek yogurt, a sprinkle of nuts, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

(Now that I'm actually looking at the original clafouti recipe, I guess this is supposed to be two servings. Whoop, not this winter...)

omg so i made bacon on the cookie sheet, and i poured off the bacon fat into a tiny glass and put sweet potatoes on the cookie sheet to put in the oven, and i fix my breakfast and i'm like, there's one for you in the kitchen, and some walnuts and maple syrup and bacon, and i just went into the kitchen to do the dishes and the tiny glass is empty! and i'm like, what do you think was in this glass? and he goes, maple syrup? and i'm like, NO. and he's like, well it was good.
