Breakfast Recipes

Thanks to all who sent in breakfast ideas! If you don't prefer a large meal in the morning, consider having a breakfast meal in the evening. Breakfast foods are usually quite economical and it could be a great way to stretch your grocery dollars.

OVEN FRENCH TOAST
1 loaf bread
8 eggs
4 c milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. nutmeg, cinnamon
Topping:
3/4 c soft butter
3 Tbs. dark corn syrup
1c br. sugar
Butter a deep cake pan well. Lay bread slices in pan. Beat eggs add milk & spices: pour over bread. Cover & refrigerate overnight. Mix topping & spread on after bread mixture has baked for about 20 min @ 350 put back in oven for an additional 30 min.
We found out by mistake --we like it better to do the topping midway thru' the baking process rather then before baking-it seems to make it more like a sticky bun!!! - Janet

Sausage Hash Brown Bake
2 lbs. sausage, browned and drained
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 16 oz. sour cream, w/ dry ranch dip mix to taste, maybe half a pkt.
1 c. chopped onion or minced onion to taste
1/4 c. chopped green pepper
1/4 c. chopped sweet red pepper
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 30 oz. pkg. frozen shredded hash browns, thawed if baking right away. Leave frozen if baking the next morning.
Combine 1 3/4 cup cheese and the next six ingredients. Fold in potatoes. Spread half into a shallow greased 3-quart baking dish. Top with sausage and remaining potato mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes more. Yields 10 to 17 servings.
Note: this recipe actually calls for 1 c. sour cream and 8 oz. container of French onion dip, but this is how I make it. - Hannah


Ham N Cheese Quiche (great for the freezer)
2 pastry shells 9"
2 c. diced fully cooked ham
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (or sharp)
2 tsp. dried minced onion
4 eggs
2 c. half and half cream
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Line unpricked pastry shells with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 400 for 5 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 more minutes.
Divide ham, cheese, and onion between the shells. In a bowl whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Pour into shells. Cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Or cover edges with foil and bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
To use frozen quiche: Completely thaw in the refrigerator. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before baking as directed.
Note: I don't usually follow these baking directions to the tee and it usually turns out fine. The foil on the edges of your pastry is a good idea so they don't get to dark.

Breakfast Sausage Casserole

1 lb. sausage
6 slices bread, in ½ in. cubes
1 ½ c. shredded cheese
6 eggs, beaten
1 ½ c. milk
Salt and pepper to taste.(I usually put ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper)

Brown sausage and place in 9 x 9 inch pan. Put bread and cheese over sausage. Beat eggs and add milk, salt, and pepper. Pour over mixture in pan. Refrigerate overnight. Bake at 325 for 45 min. Serve hot. Makes 6 servings.

My variation - I fry 1 lb. sausage and put it in a 9 x 13 pan, then double the rest of the ingredients. I bake at 350 for 1 hour. My mom and sister-in- law make it out ahead and freeze the casserole. The night before you want to serve it, get it out of the freezer and put it in your oven. Set your time bake and enjoy when you wake up! (I can’t do this since I don’t have time bake.)

I also like this recipe because I can use any meat I have on hand, bacon, ham, etc. I also add shredded or cubed potatoes sometimes. - Heidi


Egg and Cheese Bake

1 cup Bisquik
1 ½ cups cottage cheese
½ lb. grated Velveeta cheese (you can use other kinds also)
1 tsp. dried onion
1 tsp. dried parsley
¼ tsp. salt
6 eggs
1 cup milk

Melt 6 Tbsp. butter in 9 x 13 pan. Blend all other ingredients in blender and pour evenly over melted butter. Bake at 350* for 40 min. Delicious!

I wondered how it would work to blend the ingredients the night before and let your blender sit in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning melt your butter while you preheat your oven, pour in the blended mixture and bake. It would save a little time, if it would work. - Heidi

Breakfast Burritos

20 10-inch tortillas
1 lb sausage
1 med onion, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1 lb hashed brown potatoes (3 cup grated baked potato)
1 dozen eggs, beaten
1 can mushroom soup
1/2 lb shredded cheddar cheese

Brown sausage with onion and pepper. Add potatoes and fry. Add eggs and fry. Mix in mushroom soup. Spoon into tortillas. Sprinkle grated cheese. Fold up four sides of tortilla. Freeze. To heat, microwave or cover and heat in oven. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
