Breakfast and Breads

Recipe: Breakfast Pizza

I can’t recall who gave this recipe to me some years ago.  It is a standby for weekends when company arrives and sometimes a late night snack.  Easy, throw it together, cook, and eat recipe. 

1 package thick sliced bacon,  cooked crisp and chopped                                     
5 eggs
¼ cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese                                   
1 can crescent dinner rolls
1 cup shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed 

Spread crescent rolls on a cookie sheet to cover bottom.  Whisk eggs and milk together in a large bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and spread over top of crescent rolls.  Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

Y’all Enjoy! 🙂

Recipe: Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Okay.  I know I whine and complain about the summer heat and humidity.  But, honestly it just zaps the living daylight out of me and I detest being hot and sweaty.  Which is one of the reasons I look for summer recipes where I can cook in my small counter-top toaster oven, on the stove-top, or on the grill.  Anything where I don’t have to turn on the big oven.  And, this is one of the recipes I can cook in my toaster oven or in my big oven.  It is easy, simple, and delicious.   For breakfast, serve it with some fruit or if you’re serving it for lunch or dinner, whip up a nice side salad and you’ve got a meal.


 1 Pkg. Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts       
4 eggs
1 ½ cups cubed cooked ham
1 cup milk
6 oz. shredded Swiss cheese
½ tsp. salt and ½ tsp. pepper
1 cup frozen broccoli florets,  thawed and drained
½ tsp. dry ground mustard 

 Heat oven to 375 degrees F.  Make pie crust as directed on package for a one crust filled pie using a 9 inch glass pie pan.  Layer, ham, cheese and broccoli in the crust lined pan.  In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and beat well.  Pour over the broccoli/ham/cheese mixture.  Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in the center of pie comes out clean.  Let stand 10 minutes and serve.

Easy, simple, pretty and delicious. 

Y’all Enjoy! 🙂

Graduation Day 2009

This past Saturday, our families celebrated Emily’s (my daughter) second graduation from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

Emily received her undergrad Bachelor’s Degree in 2007 and on Saturday, May 9, 2009, she received her Master’s in Speech Pathology. She graduated with a 3.8 GPA and begins her career on May 18th with the hospitals of Cox Health in Missouri. We are very excited for her and her husband, Kyle.

I threw a post ceremony graduation luncheon for family and friends.  I prepared my family recipe for Smoked Brisket, Pioneer Woman’s Asian Noodle Salad, Cheese Bread based on PW’s Olive Cheese Bread, Cake Balls that Bakerella showed us how to make back at PW’s Ranch last month. I also dipped some fresh strawberries and served the cake balls and strawberries with a side of strawberry or vanilla ice cream. They raved about everything and ate it all!

We took lots of photographs and had a wonderful day.  So here’s to Emily – Congrats, baby!
