Sausage Gravy & Egg Casserole

Mom what's for dinner?
How often do we hear that?
To often to count.
Tonight the answer is breakfast.

Sausage Gravy & Egg Casserole

2 lb Breakfast Sausage Rolls (hot or mild)
3 Tbs Flour
2-3 Cups Milk plus 1/2 cup
1 Cup Cheese
6 Eggs
1 Tube Biscuits
4 Tbs Butter

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease 9x13" casserole pan.
Cut biscuits into bite size pieces and place into pan

Brown sausage in sauce pan over medium heat.
While cooking add salt and pepper to taste.
(I like to add a little Cajun seasoning for taste.)
Drain sausage and sprinkle 1/2 on top of biscuits.

Melt butter with sausage in sauce pan.

Add the flour and mix with sausage.

Slowly add 2 cups milk. 

Stir until combined and bubbly.
Add more milk if gravy is too thick.
Scramble eggs with milk and pour over sausage/biscuits.
Sprinkle with cheese.

Cover mixture with gravy.

You can now cover with foil and place in fridge or
Bake for 45 minutes.
If cooking cold from fridge cook for 30 minutes.
Take foil off and cook another 15-30 minutes 
until hot and bubbly.

Look at all of the yummy gravy.

Coffee Doughnut Bread Pudding

I know, I know who on earth has leftover 
We did (only this once)!
In fact we had 3 dozen leftover after our
Mardi Gras parade.
So what's a girl to do?
You can't throw out the goods.
Our answer is...

Coffee Doughnut Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

1 dozen Day Old Doughnuts
2 cups Milk
1 14oz Condensed Milk
1 1/4 Coffee (cooled)
6 Egg Yolks
1tsp Cinnamon 
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick) softened

Rum Sauce
1/4 cup Butter (1/2 stick)
1 cup Powdered Sugar
Rum to taste

1- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
Grease a 9x13 pan.

2- Cut or tear doughnuts into pieces and place in pan.

3- Whisk together milk, condensed milk, coffee 
(take a moment and drink a sip of your coffee), 
egg yolks and cinnamon.

4- Pour mixture over doughnuts and mix.
Let sit and get soggy.

5- In another bowl, mix together brown sugar & butter.
Sprinkle over top of doughnuts.

6- Bake 40-45 minutes until set.

7- Melt butter on high heat in small sauce pan
 add sugar stirring until blended.
Remove from heat.
Add Rum to taste.

8- Serve hot with sauce drizzled over top 
with a pipping hot cup of coffee
or a icy glass of milk.

I have to say this is one yummy dish.
I love the crunchiness of the brown sugar on top.

Disney Challenge Day 6 Favorite Disney World Ride.

We are big Disney World junkies.
I was lucky to visit Disney World 
the year it opened.  I have to say
I don't remember anything from that
visit.  I was also lucky that my Aunt and
Uncle took my sister and I when we were younger. 
Sarah even worked in the Magic Kingdom.
Her job was a parade on Main Street USA.
We can truly say we have visited
lots of times.

My favorite ride is...
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Sarah favorite is...
Pirate Of the Caribbean

Our question for you is...
What is your favorite 
Disney World Ride.
