I don't know why, but over the last few years, I haven't been preparing those "breakfast at suppertime" meals. Maybe because it's just the two of us now or maybe just because I've gotten lax with my meal preparations and have gotten stuck in a rut. Probably more of the latter, I think. :)
Anyway, last week, I had a hankerin' (does anyone use that phrase anymore?)...I had a hankerin' for a good ol' breakfast type meal. So, I pulled out a cookbook that is chock full of breakfast and brunch recipes.
|Yes, that's a picture of our home as you come up the drive.|
One recipe that I used quite often for our guests is the "Sausage Brunch Casserole". It's easy, it's filling and, more importantly, it's yummy!! I was really tired when I made this last week and forgot to take pictures!! But I did have a picture that I had clipped out of the original magazine taped next to the recipe. I'm a visual kind of person.
You will need these ingredients:
Mushroom stems and pieces
Pancake mix (Bisquick works)
I created this recipe for you to use and follow. This dish really is simple to put together and makes quite a large amount. I usually cut it in half and it easily serves 2 to 4 people.
I wanted a side dish of some sort but didn't want to make a quick bread or anything like that. So, I found a recipe for a quick, light and easy apple crisp that was originally designed for two little ramekin type dishes. Well, that wasn't going to be enough. Seriously!!
I revamped the recipe a bit by adding a nice, juicy pear and then tripling the crumbly topping. And then I added a bit more butter and sugar. Hehe. I laugh because I'm not one to mess with recipes too much. My kids give me a hard time about it and then my daughter-in-love made a good observation. I am more of a baker rather than a cooker, which is true. I love to cook but I'd MUCH rather bake. It does require precise ingredients whereas cooking has more room to experiment. Which are you...baker or cooker?
Just enough crunch and flavor to satisfy your sweet tooth without all the added calories. I did remember to take a picture as an afterthought...before it was all gone!!
The ingredients for the Apple-Pear Crisp are:
Quick-cooking oats (I only had old-fashioned)
recipe with you not too long ago.
Please be sure that I have your email address so that I can contact you. The winner will be announced the following day and I would like to have this cookbook sent out right away. Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday! Can you belive it's almost here? Goodness.
I pray you are having a wonderful start to your week ~
p.s. I'll be sharing with you in a couple of days as to how you can purchase the cookbook ;)
You'll find me at these parties:
