Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—it doesn’t have to be a recipe. If you just want to make up a recipe for dog food (I did that when I was about six years old), that’ll do just fine.

Food on Fridays with Ann
To ensure that I get a Mother’s Day brunch, I decided to go ahead and make a Mother’s Day brunch.
The main dish: Breakfast Sausage Casserole.
Yes, that’s right. Sausage. I’m writing about sausage. Even though L.L. Barkat warned me, I’m all about about sausage today. (I’ll keep an eye on my stats to monitor the sausage effect, L.L.)
Ann’s Mother’s Day Breakfast Sausage Casserole.
This recipe even comes with a complimentary (and complementary) sausage photo:
The recipe is easy, but I didn’t trust my kids to pull it off. Instead, I put it together myself and froze it. Surely they can take it out in time to thaw and bake it?
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 lb sausage, fried & drained (extra mild or turkey sausage)
- 8 eggs, beaten
- 2 C milk
- 3-4 pieces of bread, torn to bits
- 2 1/2 C grated cheddar cheese
- 1 t salt
- 1 t dry mustard
Mix all ingredients and pour into greased 9×13 glass baking dish. Refrigerate overnight (or not, if in a hurry), so it will congeal and become more firm. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Let set a few minutes before serving. Can be made ahead, baked, frozen and reheated.It’s an easy recipe. I even doubled it to share one with a friend.Please note that the cheese is supposed to be mixed together with the other ingredients. I forgot the cheese (who moved my cheese?), so I added it after everything else was in the pan and stirred it in as best I could. It’s a casserole; it’ll blend just fine, right?The kids might have done better after all.Along with the casserole, I’m thinking about coffee cake. Over the years, I’ve collected several recipes, including one for a blueberry coffee cake that I posted last August. I’m not making that ahead of time—hopefully it’ll be easy for the kids to prepare.They can oversee the casserole, mix up the coffee cake, cut up some fruit, make a pot of tea, and we’ll be good to go.For those of you who will be celebrating a mom in your life, I recommend the easy sausage casserole. I’m telling you, nothing says I love you like sausage … unless, of course, your mom’s a vegetarian.As an alternative to coffee cake, I could make a big stack of crepes Saturday evening that can be reheated Sunday morning. Yes, I like crepes. Everyone likes crepes.Mother’s Day is sounding better and better.Nutella, anyone?
