It's Tradition

It's Christmas morning and as I've done every year since I can remember, I made the infamous Breakfast Brunch. It's probably the only time of the year that I make this but it is oh, so delicious and is quick and satisfying for everyone.

It's too late to make it this Christmas morning but there are many other special occasions throughout the year for you. Make it a new tradition for your family!

Breakfast Brunch

Yields: 12 Servings

3/4 cup milk
4 large eggs
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
8 ounces Pillsbury crescent rolls
16 ounces sausage meat

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray bottom of 9 x 13 pan with vegetable cooking spray. Press crescent rolls into bottom and up sides about one-quarter inch of pan. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over crescent rolls. Cook sausage. Drain. Crumble sausage over cheese. Mix milk and eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over cheese and sausage layer. Bake 12-15 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Let stand 5 mnutes. Cut into squares and serve. Pin It

Traditional Ginger Snaps

At work every year before Christmas we have a "grazing" table where we all sign up to bring munchies to share with everyone else.  The guy who sits behind me requests Ginger Snaps every year.  They are his favorite.  One of my other cubemates stated to me on Thursday (the day I bought them to work) that he didn't even like Ginger Snaps but had eaten 8 so far and ate his 9th in front of me as we chatted.  They are delicious and I have to say it's a good recipe.  Your family and friends will enjoy them as well.  As always, Bon App├ętit!
