Sausage Gravy Stuffing Casserole

This breakfast casserole is perfect for brunch or company breakfast.  Easy to make and delicious to eat!  What could possibly be better than sausage gravy in a casserole?!  Hmmmmm, I can't think of anything, can you?   Although I didn't make it ahead of time, I think you could easily make this the night before and pop in the oven for a busy morning breakfast!  If you do, please let me know!

Crock Pot Cabbage and Kielbasa

I needed to make something healthier for us after the holidays.  Although I am still going to make a cake or pudding or muffins or, or, or...  Well, something anyway.   Hopefully this will make up for whatever it is I am about to throw together.  Hubby and I love cabbage and kielbasa in the colder months.  It's a comfort food.  Add the sweet peppers, garlic and onion and yes, I am feeling a lot of comfort going on.  I went heavy on the garlic because I'm not feeling great...feel free to cut back.  Enjoy!

Crock Pot Cabbage and Kielbasa

16 oz turkey kielbasa, sliced 1/2 to 3/4"
1 head cabbage, chopped
4 to 6  medium to large carrots, sliced 1/2 to 3/4" 
10 small sweet colored peppers, cut in quarters  
or 1 large colored pepper, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
5 to 10 cloves garlic or 1 to 2 Tablespoons minced
4 cups chicken broth
28 oz can diced tomatoes, mine was flavored with basil, garlic and oregano
(V8 juice is also great in this recipe!)
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon white pepper, or to taste

Prep veggies and kielbasa.  In 6 quart crock pot add chicken broth and tomatoes.  Season with salt and pepper..  Add garlic, peppers, onion, carrots and sausage.  Stir.  Add cabbage, stirring so it will fit.  Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours, depending how you like your veggies.  This can also be cooked on low for 8 hours. Add more salt and pepper, if needed.  Serve with Big Ole Yeast Rolls or One Hour French Bread and you have a great comfort meal!

Breakfast Slider

We love to eat breakfast for supper.  Do you?  There is just something so comforting to it.  I always think of my Precious Mama when we do.  Frying up bacon and then scattering flour on the bottom of the cast iron frying pan to cook the eggs just right!  MMM...treasured food and memory.  I'm not cooking bacon now but thought I would share since it's breakfast and all.  <3

I made this sandwich for my hubby the other night and he really like it, I did too!  The boys like their egg scrambled while we like our a little runny.  Eggs, sausage, hash browns, onions, pepper jack cheese, garlic and thyme.  Are you ready to eat?  Well, here you go then !  Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!

Breakfast Slider

1 lb bulk sausage, sliced or sausage patties, country, maple, hot, sage or season your own
or ground sirloin
pepper jack cheese, shredded
hash browns, I used frozen diced ones
1/4 minced onions
1-2 cloves minced garlic
dried thyme
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste
 dinner rolls or slices of bread cut in rounds

Make sausage, or sirloin, into patties and cook until done.  Temperature should be 160 degrees for pork.  Cook sirloin the way you like it.
Put on paper towels to soak up the grease.  Blot tops.
Save a little grease, if desired, and add oil to cook hash browns according to directions.
Add hash browns, onions and garlic.  Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Grate cheese.
When the hash browns are almost done on the flip side, toast rolls or bread rounds that have been cut with a cookie cutter or coffee mug.
To microwave eggs:  Crack an egg in a coffee cup/mug.
Sprinkle with thyme.
Cook at medium heat (1100 watt microwave) for 30 seconds or until the white is cooked on top.  Carefully flip it over and cook another 5 to 10 seconds or until your cooked the way you like your egg.  WATCH CAREFULLY!
If using diced potatoes, mash potatoes and onions until stuck together like the shredded ones.
Place on toasted rolls or toast rounds.
Top with shredded pepper jack cheese.
Place sausage, or sirloin, patty on top of cheese.
Top with egg.  Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Add additional cheese, if desired.

Sausage Cheese Balls

If you have ever been in the south during the winter holidays, I know you have eaten these!  We always called them just "Sausage Balls"  but there is a lot of cheese in them so...Sausage Cheese Balls they are!  I can remember these from way back when.  Seems there were always on the table of snacks when there were get togethers at Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  I don't know why they were never fixed in the warmer months of the year.  Something I will have to find out!  Easy to make, Yummy to Eat!   ~smiles~

Sausage Cheese Balls
I made 49 from this recipe.  Mine aren't always the same size for some reason. 

3 cups biscuit mix
1 lb bulk sausage
1-2 lb cheddar cheese 3-4 cups shredded..I used cut up chunks I had and got 3 cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray cookie sheets (2)

Toss everything with a fork,  

Mix with hands.  

Shape into walnut size balls. Bake on greased cookie sheets (2) for 15-20 minutes @ 350 degrees.  

 Halfway through,  lift sausage balls up with spatula so they won't stick and turn pan around.  As always, My oven cooks different than yours.  Please adjust time accordingly.
Place a paper towels to absorb grease from the bottom.  Remove from paper towels, place on serving plate and serve with spicy or honey mustard.

Sausage Rolls

An easy make ahead breakfast or after school snack.  Two ingredients and you are set!  Great for appetizers while watching football with spicy or honey mustard.

Sausage Rolls

1 bag frozen yeast rolls
1 package, 10-12 brown n serve sausage links
(double the sausage if you are leaving the sausage whole)

Thaw rolls as directed.
Thaw sausage and cut in half.

Once thawed, stretch dough to make a circle.
Place sausage half inside. 
You can also leave sausage whole, stretch and wrap around.

Roll up and tuck ends over top, flip over and place in greased 13x9 pan. 

If cooking at a later time, spray tops, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator.  Get out in the morning and let them set, and come to room temperature, while your oven is preheating.  Cook as below. 

If cooking now...let double in size. Then place in preheated 350 degree oven and cook for 7 minutes, turn around.  Cook another 5 minutes and check.  These need to be a little dark to cook throughout.  15-18 minutes should be good.
As always, My oven cooks different than yours.  Check before earliest time and adjust time accordingly.

Top with butter and serve.  <3 and Hugs!

Sausage and Peach Jam

This is similar to my Bacon Jam.  Although mine is not very ... jammy, it has a delicious taste and sits nicely on a toasted biscuit, english muffin, toast or even a hamburger if you so desire.  :D

Sausage and Peach Jam
makes 2 1/2 cups

1 lb of Smoked Sausage, I used Kielbasa because that is what I had
1 medium to large Sweet Onion
1 1/2 cups Peaches, diced
1 cup of Coca Cola*
1  cup of Water*
1/2 cup of sugar*
2 teaspoons of Minced Garlic, I used the jarred minced garlic in olive oil
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce

Cut sausage into thin quatered pieces. Cook to render fat.  Pour off fat and wipe fat out of skillet with a paper towel.  Blot sausage.
Dice onion into small pieces and add to skillet.  Cook until carmelized.
Add garlic, salt, pepper, tabasco sauce and coca cola. 
Cook until most of the coca cola has reduced. 
Boil water and remove from heat.  Add sugar and stir to dissolve.  Add to skillet along with peaches. 
Cook until most of the liquid has reduced. 
*note.. you can substitue a large can of peaches for the water, sugar and peaches*
