Oh my gosh, pie crust and sausage, y'all. This breakfast pie is the bee's knees. Mike's mom always makes it for Christmas breakfast and we dream of it all year long! I added a little jalapeño (which you can adjust to your taste) to give it a slight kick, but it won't make your nose run or eyes water. I recommend serving this with a sweet side -- maybe fruit and some coconut meringue dip -- and mimosas for a special Sunday brunch.

“Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.”

Love that wee poem :) Also known as the Selkirk Grace. For those of you who didn't know, it was Burn's Night yesterday and living in Scotland, its absolutely mandatory to celebrate all things Scottish! Last year I made some Cranachan Cupcakes. This year, its all about meat- venison to be precise.

These Ultimate Sausage Breakfast Buns are comprised of the best yeast rolls stuffed with cheddar grits, eggs, sausage, and hash browns, and topped with a drizzle of maple syrup. They are also straight-up incredible. They're worth every bit of butter, every egg, and every minute spent making them -- which is considerable. They're definitely a special occasion treat! They would be perrrfect for Christmas breakfast! You can prepare them the night before, wake up early to preheat your oven and set them out to rise, and then just pop them in the oven 15 minutes before you eat.

YOU GUYS. "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence. No joke! That's so off-topic but also so incredible. I wrote all about it over on the blog, so if you're feeling ridiculous and want to read it, you can.

In the meantime, stuffed mushrooms. These are the BEST you'll ever eat. This recipe is very slightly adapted from Pioneer Woman's stuffed mushroom recipe, and features an incredible filling of mushroom, onions, sausage, cream cheese, white wine, and thyme. Mike and I eat the whole batch by ourselves as a main course some nights for dinner.

I'm behind on my LJ posts, so 2 in one day (and one still to come, but I'll hold off for that one) from me. This one NEEDS to make your "to do" list. It was insane.

This Sausage & Corn Chile Con Queso Taco Ring is stuffed with a mixture of hot sausage, sweet corn, green chiles, cheddar cheese, and cream cheese. The result is a creamy, savory masterpiece with a little kick -- not too much for kids -- that is so delicious with some crisp iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, fresh guacamole, and sour cream. Since it uses Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, it was quick and easy to whip up. It trumps all regular tacos and taco rings, and even my Taco Stuffed Crescent Rolls, which is really saying something. Because those things are nuts.

Anyway, please make this one! And send me some.

Bacon, Olive and Almond Filled Chicken

Cutting pockets into chicken fillets is something I have avoided like it was the devil. Every time I saw it in the method of a recipe I'd exclaim, "Nope!" and turn the page. I was sure I'd make a right mess of the meat and end up with filling all over my oven.

For Week 33 of my cook book challenge, I decided it was high time I challenged myself to give it a go.

Turns out I'd been avoiding this for nothing. It's really not as hard as it seems. While my cut wasn't perfectly symmetrical, it was functional. If, like me, you've never tried this before, this filling is a good one to start with. It doesn't become runny, so the chances of it seeping out of minor holes are slim.

I have a bad habit of skipping breakfast, but when the boyfriend is over it gives me reason to invest a little effort in what should be my first meal of the day. Here's one of the things I baked for our early morning noms.

This recipe is made using a basic scone dough - with a little twist.

Haw haw, see what I did there?

I know. I'm so lame...Collapse )
