Hello everyone! I have given a lot of advice and fed a lot of people in my lifetime. Some people take my advice, some people can only learn from the school of “hard knocks.” You know who you are.
Back to feeding people. When Jacob was a senior in high school, I had boys in and out of the house all the time. James Brimble A.K.A. Buff Jimmy (my other son) and Michael Duncan lived with us. I always fed them good food and on Sunday after church, I fixed them a big spread. They took turns getting to pick the meal. On this particular Sunday, it was fried chicken and all the trimmings day. I always made mashed potatoes with fried chicken. Looking for a shortcut, I found these frozen potatoes. All you had to do was microwave them, add milk and butter. The packaged assured me they tasted just like homemade…WRONG! I served them anyway. We sat down to eat, we prayed, and the boys dug in. Jacob took a bite of mashed potatoes and looked at me funny and said, “what did you do?” I replied, “what?” He said, “there is something wrong with these potatoes.” I was forced to fess up and tell him that I tried to take a shortcut and that they were not real potatoes. The boys looked at me and informed me not to try it again or they would be walking out. Can I say spoiled? And no, I have never tried that again. So my advice is to always use real potatoes.
This week’s recipe comes from a dear friend of mine, Gina Epperson. She is not only my friend, but she is also my boss. We have been through a lot together over the 20 years that we’ve worked together, weddings of our children, grandchildren being born, deaths, fun times, and lots of crazy stuff.
This is a breakfast casserole, but if you’re like me, you love breakfast for dinner. Enjoy this recipe and it is easy and quick to prepare!
1 can crescent rolls (pressed on a greased pan)
1 pound of sausage browned
1 cup of hashbrowns (frozen works great)
1 cup of shredded cheese
Beat five eggs with 1/4 cup of milk, salt, and pepper
Layer all the ingredients in the order given. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm.
Have a blessed week!
