Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

I'm finally putting this recipe up on the blog.  This delicious breakfast casserole is something I've been making on Christmas morning for years and years.  I do it because my mother-in-law gave me the original recipe and I make it for my husband.  So it's become a tradition and I serve it every Christmas morning. We give a big neighborhood Christmas Eve open house every year, so when I am preparing dishes for that on the 24th, I go ahead and make this dish and stick it in the fridge. Then, on Christmas morning, I get up and pop it in the oven while we open gifts and it takes about an hour to heat up.  It's perfect timing! Serve it with a bowl of fresh fruit and you're all set.

Arancini from Sicily - Rice Balls Stuffed with Mozzarella

ceramic plate from Fifty One and a Half

 

See the quilt in the opening photograph?  I made that.  A lot of you probably know that I like to make things.  I cook, of course, but I like to knit and sew. I've started writing about what I'm sewing (mostly quilts) for fun and if you are into that sort of thing, I hope you will jump on over to Beech Tree Lane Handmade and follow me there!

From Pizza Class: Pizza with Mushrooms, Pancetta & Onion

 

I just finished giving a Fall pizza making class and it seems like I get a lot of e-mails from readers who cannot attend the class because they don't live locally and want to know more about what we make in the class.  So I'm going to talk a little bit today about what we discuss during class about the finer points of homemade pizza. We make six pizzas during class and this is one of them and one of my favorites.  If you think bacon, onions and mushrooms go together just about perfectly, you will love this pizza.  I'm also going to give you some parts of the handout that I give my students during class so you can see what we cover.
