This post is part deux of my mom's guest blogging event. I have been cooking, but by the time the kitchen is clean, I don't much feel like sitting down at the computer (since that's what I've been doing all day with overtime). I can't wait to get finished with my busy season at work so I can get back to posting. But in the meantime, I appreciate the help from my mom. I hope you all like this recipe, I can't wait to try some this weekend. I just realized, reading my mom's recipes, where I got my penchant for liberal onion usage. Every time her ingredient list includes onions, she says 'as much as you like'. You can never go wrong with extra onion!
ON SATURDAY MORNING OF THE REUNION WE'RE HAVING A BREAKFAST CASSEROLE THAT IS AMAZING! IT'S CALLED EASTER BREAKFAST CASSEROLE. ALSO, I'VE MADE EIGHT LOAVES OF FRUIT BREADS AND HAVE THEM IN THE FREEZER, PUMPKIN, IRISH SODA BREAD WITH CRANBERRIES, GINGERBREAD, AND OATMEAL AND APPLE BREAD (2 LOAVES EACH). WILL PROBABLY DO SOME BISCUITS ALSO.
EASTER BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
2# BACON CHOPPED AND COOKED
CHOPPED ONION - AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE
CHOPPED GREEN PEPPER - AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE
6 CUPS SHREDDED CHEDDAR CHEESE
4 CUPS MILK
2# FROZEN HASH BROWNS THAWED
USE THE CHUNK HASH BROWNS NOT THE SHREDS. THIS IS A DOUBLE RECIPE, PROBABLY TWO 9 X 13 PANS. BEAT EGGS AND MILK, MIX IN ALL INGREDIENTS. POUR IN GREASED PANS, COVER AND COOK 45 MINUTES THEN UNCOVER AND BAKE 30 MINUTES. OH YEAH, AT 350.
THIS IS REALLY, REALLY GOOD STUFF MAYNARD!!!
NOW, SOME OF THE OTHER THINGS I HAVE IN MY FREEZER ARE ALL OF THE COOKED BURGER FOR THE CHILI AND SOUP, SIX POUNDS. THE TWO POUNDS OF COOKED BACON ARE IN THERE. I HAVE TWO BATCHES OF CORN BREAD FROZEN AND A CHOPPED APPLE WITH DATES AND WALNUTS CAKE AND SOME BROWNIES. NEXT POST WILL BE THE RECIPE FOR THESE FAMOUS BROWNIES.
---The fruit breads my mom listed above are all awesome, I'll see if I can talk her into doing another guest series of her fruit breads, I'm sure she'll be making them again for Thanksgiving. I'm liking this Guest Blogger thing more and more, less work for me, but more yummy food for me to try!
