Pretty much every Thursday I make breakfast food for dinner. It is that time of the week where I am out of ideas, just plain tired, or I am hungry for a breakfast that doesn’t begin and end with oatmeal.
This past week I knew I had eggs, cheese, a little bit of leftover bacon, and a cup of (leftover) turkey sausage. In my freezer I had some Pillsbury frozen biscuits. (Don’t judge me … I keep them for an emergency … or for whenever I want a great biscuit fast!)
Sitting in front of my computer I decided to Google “eggs, biscuits, and sausage recipe”. If you haven’t ever done that I highly recommend it. Just search using whatever main ingredients you have on hand. You never know what will pop up and in this case … a really fantastic recipe called Sausage, Egg and Biscuit Casserole from my recipes.com.
I used some crumbled bacon and turkey sausage, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, eggs, milk and cut up frozen biscuits. Oh my word was I surprised by this recipe! My sous-chef dish-washing mom loved it and the Chief said “this is really great!”
You can easily start with the basic recipe and add or subtract anything you want or don’t want. I can see this as an all-cheese recipe, onions and green peppers added, or how about some spicy Chorizo sausage served with salsa?
Whether it is 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, Sunday brunch, or Thursday night dinner … your family with love this casserole!
“Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.”
