Recipe Wednesday! Cold Weather Cure = Hot-n-Hearty Breakfast!

All of this cold, wet, dreary weather makes me HUNGRY for a hot-n-hearty breakfast, how about you? Serve up these FAB recipes with a STEAMING cup of strong coffee or tea. Whattah way to wake up!



8 eggs
2 heaping Tbsp sour cream
1 Tbsp water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese


In a medium size bowl, beat eggs, sour cream, water, and salt and pepper until fluffy. Using a nonstick frying pan, melt butter and cook eggs over low heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cheese. Cook until you reach desired consistency.

Serve hot with country ham and biscuits, or sausage gravy & biscuits.

...Ooh ...Did someone say GRAVY & BISCUITS? I think they did!


Sausage Gravy:

1 lb. breakfast sausage
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 1/2 cups milk

Brown and crumble sausage (don't drain it). Add flour, salt and pepper and stir. If the sausage is dry, you may need to add a bit of shortening when adding flour. Add milk while stirring. Heat until it starts to boil and reduce heat and continue to stir until thickened. Makes about 5 cups of gravy.

Homemade Biscuits:

4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
8 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cream of tartar
4 tsp. sugar
1 cup shortening
1 1/3 cup milk

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add milk all at once and stir until dough follows fork around bowl. Roll 1/2 thick.* Use a large glass or a canning jar to cut biscuits. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 30 biscuits.

*Note: The key to light and fluffy biscuits is not to work the dough too much.
