For Christmas morning brunch I made a breakfast casserole. It was so nice to make it the day before and just pop it in the oven Christmas morning. Delicious!

Sally's Breakfast Casserole
1 lb. sausage
8-10 slices of white bread - cubed
1 cup milk
6 eggs
1/2 - 1 cube butter - melted
salt and pepper to taste
Grated Cheddar cheese
1 can Evaporated milk
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

Brown sausage, cube bread, combine milk, eggs, butter, and salt pepper in a bowl. In a 9X13 baking dish layer cubed bread, sausage, and egg mixture. Cover and set overnight in refrigerator. Next morning combine evaporated milk and mushroom soup. Pour mixture over top of casserole and grate cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

Candice's Sticky Bun Bites

Christmas Eve I decided to make my sisters recipe for Sticky Bun Bites, however, I put them in a bundt pan to make it more festive. It was delicious! We will be doing this every Christmas Eve. We enjoyed these tasty treats while watching A Christmas Carol. (I only made half the recipe.)

Candice’s Sticky Bun Bites
12 Rhodes rolls, microwave thaw for 1 min. 15 sec. (turn halfway through), cut into 48 pieces
6 Tbsp. butter, melted
¾ c. brown sugar, unpacked
2 tsp. cinnamon
Melt butter, set aside. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
Prepare caramel sauce.
Caramel Sauce:
1 c. brown sugar, packed
½ c. butter
¼ c. Karo syrup
1 c. pecans, chopped (optional)
Bring sugar and butter to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and add Karo syrup. Pour into an ungreased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle on pecans. Set aside.
Dip each piece of roll dough in melted butter and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place in baking dish on top of caramel. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter and let sit for a minute to let the caramel sauce drip over rolls. Serve warm.

Fluffy French Toast

Mine didn't turn out so fluffy because I didn't use Texas toast...

4 Eggs
2 cups Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla
3 cups Bisquick
4 tsp. Sugar
Cinnamon (optional)
1 Loaf Texas Toast
Crisco for frying

Beat together eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add Bisquick, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir until smooth. Melt Crisco in a heavy frying pan until at least ½ inch deep. Dip toast slices in batter and deep fry until golden brown on both sides. Place on a rack or paper towels to drain. Serve with powdered sugar, syrup, fruit, etc. Enjoy!

Christmas Goodie Making

My sister and I baked all morning and put together our Christmas goodie plates. I know it's early but it was the only day we could get together this month to do it. It is nice to have it done and it just means everyone will get to start early on eating yummy Christmas goodies.
