Recipe I can relate to……….

For some reason I relate every holiday to food. It’s probably because during my childhood, my Mother went to so much trouble to cook for a thousand even though there were going to be 8 for supper.

Every Thanksgiving, the cooking would begin by 6 am and the fights would break out around 8….every Christmas, we’d be shoved out of bed to eat at 6:30 am a huge breakfast that no one wanted before presents were opened.

I swore I would NEVER be the one cooking up a storm for ungrateful people when I grew up.

Yet, here i am cooking and it is only 8:30 in the morning…the reason is quite different though.

George’s office is having their holiday luncheon today.  I signed up (yes, I volunteered!)_ to make a “breakfast casserole”…one of those artery clogging, fantastically tasty things that everyone swears they hate yet it is gone before anyone can blink twice.  I’m not even going to the luncheon, yet here I am baking!  And it is fine!

The people that work for Hospice Circle of Love in Enid are the kindest, most accepting people on the planet! They give of themselves daily to their patients, the patient’s families and each other. They hold each other up emotionally when a patient dies or someone’s life is just “off” a bit. They LIVE their faith and it shows in everything they do.

The nurses go for hours and never complain…they miss meals, miss bathroom breaks, miss sleep…all for their patients. So, anything I can do to make their life a bit better is fine by me!

I’m sharing the casserole recipe here in case someone in your life needs some comfort food. Forget about the fat content, or the calories for once….and don’t turn up that cute little nose at it. THIS is Southern comfort food at its best.

Breakfast casserole:

Ingredients: 1 chopped green pepper, 1 chopped small white onion, 1 pound sausage (cooked), 1 pound bacon (cooked and broken up into pieces), 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded), 4 cups hash browns or tater tots, 5 eggs, 1 cup biscuit mix, 3 cups milk, 1/2 teas salt, 

How to prepare: in a large pan spread out the tater tots or hash browns, layer bacon, cheese, sausage, green pepper, onions over top.  In a large bowls beat eggs, add milk and stir till mixed. Add baking mix and salt, mix well.  Pour over the top. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning (evening, whatever!) bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Casserole will be firm in the middle when completely cooked. let sit ten minutes before serving.

    1. keep an eye on it…when it is solid in the middle it is done. I start checking at about the 1/2 hour mark….my stove is wonky though. And I can always mail you one of my oddball fruitcakes……lol

  3. This looks fabulous. It reminds me of the breakfast casserole Sarah Jessica Parker made in the Christmas movie “The Family Stone.” She accidentally drops it on the floor. That scene always bothers me because I want to see her eat it. It looks so good. Now I can make my own. 🙂
