Happy Thanksgiving





Since it's Thanksgiving week and we are all ready to stuff ourselves full of great food, I'm including a breakfast casserole I make ahead of time for Thanksgiving morning and let it cook while I start the Thanksgiving feast food. My kids and husband love it.

Ingredients:
1 package (16 oz.) of bulk ground sausage. I like a little spice to mine so I get a mild or hot sausage.

1 onion (chopped or you can buy a bag of the frozen already chopped)

1 red pepper (chopped or you can buy a bag of the frozen already chopped)

3-4 cups frozen square hash browns

2 cups cheddar cheese

3/4 cups Bisquick (I use gluten free Bisquick because Eddy is gluten free and it's the same measurements)

2 cups of milk

6 eggs

Optional black pepper

Directions:
I preheat my oven to 400
Spray a 3 quart baking dish ( 13 x 9 inches) with cooking spray
Over medium heat, cook the chopped onion and red pepper along with the sausage until the sausage is cooked with no pink. Drain the meat. Add the meat mixture, frozen hash browns, and 1.5 cups of the cheese in the baking dish.
In a bowl, combine the milk, Bisquick, eggs, and pepper (optional). Pour over the sausage mix in the baking dish.
Bake for around 30-35 minutes. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over top and bake another five minutes or until the cheese has melted. I'm a big believer in letting the food stand for 5-10 minutes after taken out of the oven. Enjoy!

After a bitter divorce, Roxanne Davis (her friends, though few call her Roxie) has moved back home to Honey Springs, Kentucky where she's opened the tourist lakefront town's first coffee house, The Bean Hive. 


With the excitement of the Bean Hive opening and rush of business, Roxie is moving on with her life until she finds that one of her best customers, Lilia Walters, was found dead after eating one of Roxie's best-selling doughnuts after Roxie's aunt Maxine gave Lilia as a peace offering.



Gossip in Honey Springs is as hot at the coffee served at the Bean Hive and Roxie has to uncover who is behind the murder not only to save her shop, her aunt, but her life.

  26. I love Turkey & Dressing! No one's Dressing tastes as good as my Mother's. I surely miss enjoying it since she stepped into the arms of Jesus 4 years ago. Her sister's is almost exactly like it. After all, they did learn from the same fabulous cook - their Mama! One year my sweet husband, a ridiculously good cook in his own right, cooked two Crown Roasts of Pork with Shoepeg Cornbread Dressing. Delicious!!

  31. This year it's lemon meringue pie! Family is all over and we're unable to make it together. There'll be a conference call mid afternoon. So my husband and I are heading out to Market Tavern for a quiet, romantic, no-dishes-to-wash Thanksgiving dinner. It'll be different, but fun!
