It’s been a while since I last posted a dinner recipe here on the blog. Lately, we’ve gotten in the habit of hibernating at home to avoid the nasty weather. I’ve used this bonus time as an opportunity to explore some new recipes. Thanks to motivation from Jen Hatmaker in For the Love, I’ve had several glasses of wine and new home-cooked meals over the past couple of months. Here is a great recipe that I found in an old cookbook and tweaked so that my entire family would enjoy this dish. I hope you find a way to work it into your family’s meal rotations.
1 cup diced fully cooked ham
3/4 cup of shredded Swiss Cheese (or four slices ripped into bite-sized pieces)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 chopped green pepper
1 cup milk
1/4 cup bisquick mix
1/8 tsp pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a greased, 10 in. pie plate layer ham, both cheeses, and green pepper.
- Place the remaining ingredients in a blender or stand mixer in the order given above. Blend for 35-40 seconds.
- Pour the liquid mixture over the ham, cheese, and peppers. Do not stir.
- Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes or until set and lightly brown.
- Let stand five minutes before cutting and consuming.
*It’s as simple as that!
The Ameri Brit Mom
If your family is anything like mine, every morning there is a struggle to eat breakfast and get through the morning routine. All of my best intentions to be ready on time are often thwarted by the race against the clock. And when required to drop a part of the regimen usually I do the terrible deed of neglecting breakfast. We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Knowing this I’ve started a routine of cooking breakfasts on Sundays and freezing them for the upcoming week. This week I made Sausage Balls and thought I would share the recipe for those of you struggling to grab breakfast in the mornings. Gone are the days of fast food drive thrus when it only takes 40 seconds to cook an on-the-go breakfast.
1 lb. medium ground sausage
2 cups Bisquick
2 Tb melted butter
10 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients by hand in a large glass bowl. Be sure to pull the sausage apart thoroughly to be sure ingredients are evenly distributed.
2. Form small balls of the mixture with your hands. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. (These smell amazing while baking!!)
4. These can be served immediately, but if you are choosing to freeze them wait until they are cool to place in a freezer bag. They keep well for up to two months.
**in order to reheat sausage balls, place them in the microwave wrapped in a napkin or paper towel. Heat for 40 seconds to a minute. Be sure to check that the sausage balls are cooked through before consuming.
This is such a quick and easy recipe that is a favorite in my home. No more neglecting breakfast or stopping at a drive-thru for a greasy breakfast sandwich for this family.
