Alcoeur's Apron - Breakfast


All the recipes that we will feature on Alcoeur's Apron will be soft, easy to swallow, and a great choice for elderly eaters! We try to keep all the meals under 15 ingredients so that you and your loved one have more time eating together then cooking or cleaning the kitchen. This week we are focusing on the most important meal of the day, breakfast! There are so many different variations to these two classics. Feel free to change it up or add more toppings. We are excited about all the positive feedback that we received from our first Alcoeur's Apron, we hope you enjoy this just as much!
