So after a quick jaunt to the ranch this weekend, the last thing I wanted to do Sunday night was fix a big dinner. I wanted quick and easy, but still yummy and satisfying.
Sounds like a good time for breakfast.
I quickly thawed a pound of breakfast sausage in the microwave, then browned it in a skillet.
Next, I cracked 8 eggs into a bowl and whisked in a half cup of whipping cream. Then I added 2 cups of shredded cheese (I had some leftover smoked Gruyere, so I used that then rounded it out with some sharp cheddar, but you can use whatever you like), some sliced mushrooms (yes, these are optional) and then the drained sausage, along with some salt and pepper. Stir it all together.
Pour the mixture into a greased pie plate.
And bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
While that baked, I contemplated our impending sleet/winter weather event. It wasn't much, but it was our first of the season. And enough to call off school. Let's face it, an inch of ice and school buses are not a good mix.
Remove casserole from the oven and let cool 10 minutes before cutting.
However, if you turn your back for too long, this might happen.
Teenage boys wait for no one when their stomachs are rumbling. The heathens.
This was so yummy. And not a carb in sight. Love that!
And as we readied for our winter weather, I couldn't help remembering the beautiful sunset at the ranch the night before.
Don't you just love it when God puts on a show?
