Growing up I was always in the kitchen helping Mom or cooking and baking on my own. I was the domestic sister cleaning, gardening and hanging laundry on the line. Sister helped in the kitchen a little, but being domestic was not her top priority. M quickly picked up that Mom is a pinch of this, dash of that type of cook and tried to imitate Mom’s style. Sister has grown into quite a little homemaker; it kind of makes me laugh!
J and I went to visit Sister and her hubby in Iowa last fall. She made us an awesome casserole for breakfast. I got the recipe and it has turned into another favorite at our house.
Sister and I; September 2010.
I make a half recipe for J and I and bake it in an 8 X 8 pan. I also add pepper and dried mustard to the egg mixture. I am not a fan of potatoes so I leave them off my half of the casserole. I love veggies and sautee a combinaiton of onions, mushrooms, peppers and garlic. Whatever I have on hand gets tossed in the pan. I leave off the Parmesan cheese.
2 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine or butter
2/3 cup milk (buttermilk will also work)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Dough will be sticky.
Wet ingredients all mixed up.
Biscuits make the casserole crust.
1 lb browned sausage
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried mustard
1 cup frozen hash browns (M has tried fresh and says it just doesn’t work)
1 cup cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Spread biscuit dough in a 9 x 13 greased glass pan. Over the dough, spread (in this order, bottom to top) sausage, hash browns and cheddar cheese. Mix together eggs, milk and salt, then pour the egg mixture over the top. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
Our local food store makes a yummy homemade sausage.

Breakfast Casserole goes fast at our house.
Serve with salsa, if you are into that kind of thing.
Thank You M for this recipe. It makes an awesome breakfast for company or dinner after a long morning of chores.
Do you have a favorite breakfast to serve company?
