Quilt With Us

Well, after my Friday’s blood work came back we had to cancel our plans to go to our son and DIL’s for the Super Bowl weekend game and eat fest.  We had the everything packed up and ready to go when the phone call came in.  It was sure a bummer to have to unpack the car and a cooler full of food.  So you know the old saying when great plans get cancelled and you're told you can't leave the house:  “eat lots of food and get fat”.

I’d thought I share with you a breakfast dish that we have every Saturday morning on Super Bowl weekend.  I had to pare it down since there is only the two of us so you can add to or decrease depending on how many you have eating with you.  Cinnamon rolls and some fresh fruit make it even better. 

We call this dish, Irene’s Special (Irene, my dear MIL made this up years ago)

Ingredients: for 2...one of which is a big eater

 ½ tube of Jimmy Dean Original Sausage

5 eggs...... my hubby is a big guy and eats a lot so up or down the eggs

1-2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

2 large heaping heaping heaping soup spoons of sour cream (sound better than 3-4 spoonsful, mabye less calories too?)

1 tomato     


1.  Scramble Sausage until thoroughly cooked, drain fat.  I put it on a few layers of paper towel and pat off excess grease. Set aside.

2. a. Shred cheese and   b. cut up tomatoes into small pieces.  Set aside

3.  Beat eggs and scramble them until done. 

Now the fun part:

Layer on an oven proof dish or platter.

First layer:  scrambled eggs

Second layer:  scrambled sausage

Third layer:  sour cream---smear it all over (use more if needed...lite sour cream is okay)

Forth layer:  cut up tomatoes

Last layer:  cheddar cheese

Put under the boiler for just a few minutes until the cheese is nice and melted.

That’s it….Oh, sorry for no photo but we gobbled it up in record time.  I always kid my hubby that he eats so fast I think sometimes he uses a huge straw and inhales his meal in one breath.

hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.  (ps:  we have it at least once a month but it's a staple on SuperBowl weekend with our kids)

Have to give you a report on the success of your recipe. Made it for DH's breakfast this morning. His one comment was, 'How are you going to top this tomorrow morning?'. Thank you!!!

I don't know your story, Debbie, but I do understand the constant watching of blood levels.  I deal with Lymphoma, currently in remission, but that can always change with next blood test.  Everyone seems so supportive of you and your struggle here, so let me add my best wishes for you.  2012 was a hard year for me, and I didn't even sew a stitch all year.  This year is different, and hopefully my growing list of projects will keep me busy.

This sounds like a perfect recipe to make when I have overnight guests.  I make what I call an "oven omelet" but this takes it to another level with the sausage and sour cream. Praying for you here.

Sorry for your disapointment, Debbie. Your positive attitude and total trust in God is a testimony. What a shinning example you are to all of us. A friend gave me a little card that says "When life gives you scraps, Make quilts". How appropriate for all of us at times. Maybe that's why we all have so many quilts in various stages. Thanks for the recipe. My hubby will love it as well. Only he will put salsa on top I imagine. Sounds like our hubby's are cut from the same molds in the speed eating department. You'd think they were in a contest going after a big prize!

Stay strong and God bless. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Sounds good Debbie but sure sorry you had to cancel your fun for the bowl party.  I hope you are not in any trouble with the lab work.  I hope you cvan find enough to hold you over for the weekend.

Yummy, thanks for sharing, now go sew, sew, sew!  :)

Sounds like a yummy breakfast and will have to try it. So sorry to hear that you can't go out this weekend, because of your low blood count. Just eat a yummy breakfast, sew for awhile and watch the superbowl and then feast some more. Keeping you in my thoughts. My DH used to eat faster than he does now and he's cut down a lot from yesteryears. It's sure easier on the food bill. HAHAHAHA!!!  Have a good day tomorrow.

I'm glad that you get to stay home and not have to head to Wenatchee right away though, but am sorry you couldn't go to your son's place for the weekend.  

YUM - your recipe sounds delicious and something we'd love. I'll have to put it in my file and make it for DH soon. Thanks for sharing it! 

Today I made some double chocolate cupcakes -- almost as nutritious as your dish! LOL

Total bummer when you were looking forward to being with family, and can't go.  I am so sorry that it didn't work out for you - you deserve the get-away.  The breakfast sounds yummy though.  Hope you enjoy the big game anyway, along with any special treats your heart desires.

Sorry Debbie.  You have the right to go to your (sewing) room and pout all day!
