Farmer’s Breakfast

I always look forward to morning because that means...
 another breakfast!

At Breakfast ~ Ray Hendershot

As I’ve said before, breakfast is hands-down my favorite meal of the day and the weekend is the perfect time for a heartier breakfast.  I have a thing for breakfast casseroles, especially when cooking breakfast for company.  This one is so simple to put together and one that you and your guests will love. 

Farmer’s breakfast is a country-style dish filled with sausage, eggs, potatoes and cheese. 
It will make your taste buds tingle and your mouth water.  Just whip it together and you will soon be enjoying a hot delicious breakfast casserole with some of your favorite ingredients!

Farmer’s Breakfast


1 pound of your favorite sausage
1 small red or green bell pepper, chopped
3 large potatoes, cooked and cubed
¾ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
6 eggs
½ cup milk
3 tablespoons onion, chopped
¼ cup crisply fried bacon, crumbled or bacon bits
Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook and crumble sausage in skillet until done.
Drain and set aside, leaving 1 tablespoon of drippings in skillet.
To drippings add onion and green pepper.
Cook about 3 minutes.
Spread crumbled sausage in 9” casserole dish.
Place onion mixture and potatoes on top.
In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper together.
Spread egg mixture over potato mixture, top with cheese and bacon bits.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean, removing cover during last 10 minutes.
Serves 6


Pam’s note:  Frozen hash browns may be used; let them thaw first.


  1. Right, this one is bookmarked for when there is more than just me for breakfast. It sounds delicous and I can just smell it coming out of your oven, Mmmmmmmmm Diane

  2. Sounds good as all your recipes do. I always like making extra potatoes because there are so many ways to use them the next time around. Hope you are having a good weekend.

  3. Yum, I just made something like this for dinner last night, without all the nummy bacon though. This looks great, thanks!

  4. Sounds like a nice hearty breakfast. Has everything you'd want. Yum!

  5. This looks so hearty and delicious Pam - it is not usual in England to have peppers and cheese with bacon and sausage - so this is such an unusual dish to me and it sounds so tasty.

  6. There's nothing like a big hearty breakfast on the weekend, we look forward to it, too! Farmer's Breakfast sounds right up our alley, thanks, copied and saved!

    and once in a while we like breakfast for dinner!

  7. If I have leftover breakfast casserole I turn it into breakfast burritos. I scoop a small amount of the casserole onto a flour tortilla, add some salsa and cheese and heat.

  8. A delicious and hearty breakfast! Filled with all my breakfast favorites. I bet this would keep me full until dinner!

  9. Food, Fun and Life in the Charente, It's definitely a great dish for company!

    midwesttomidlands, I always make extra potatoes also; they're a good thing to have around!

    Debbi Smith, breakfast food works any time of the day!

    Lyndsey, yes! It takes sausage and eggs up a notch!

    Lucie, I didn't realize that about England. I hope you try it!

    Dishesdone, I'm with you all the way! Love those weekend breakfasts!

    Brownieville Girl, thanks! Hope you had a good weekend!

    Linda, that sounds great and I will have to try it! It's a whole new meal then. Thanks!

    Cinnamon Girl, yes! It sticks with you for the day! Thanks!

  10. THis sounds awesome. And you're right, great for company. Yummy!

  11. Sam, it's definitely a dish for sausage lovers! And for that matter, potato lovers like me! Thanks for dropping by!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
