Customized pizzas are the best kind of pizzas! Don’t forget to add your favorite toppings and ingredients like pepper varieties, mushrooms, tomatoes, extra meats and specialty cheeses to this great recipe!

Here is our basic sausage and egg breakfast pizza recipe.

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Pizza Recipe

~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

~Cook in nonstick skillet or sprayed cast iron 10 inch, warm 8 oz. of brown and serve pork sausage. (We prefer links cut into 1/2 inch pieces, it works the best.) Links take 3-4 minutes to warm. Remove sausage from skillet & drain.

~ Whisk 6-8 beaten eggs into warm skillet. With spatula, gently fluff and lift small portions of cooked eggs from the bottom of the skillet. (As to not stir.) Cook additional 5 minutes. Eggs should be moist/ soft but thoroughly cooked through.

~Place 2 (8 ounce) ready- to -serve pizza crusts on ungreased cookie sheets.

~Between the two crusts divide eggs, cooked link slices and top with 1 cup of cheddar cheese on each pizza. *Don’t forget to add your favorite toppings.

~Bake 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted.

This recipe is so simple, yet delicious. Take note, that this works on mini’s, “pop” biscuit pizzas, and also on pita breads. (Makes about 6). A great way to make single servings for students or individual kids breakfast pizzas.

Ultimate French Toast Recipe

~In a round baking pan beat 6 eggs. Add 5 Tablespoons of whole milk. Blend with fork.

~Gently add a splash of vanilla extract and a couple drops of almond extract. Mix.

~Top off your batter with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. (I only add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, dip a few slices, then add 1/4 more as it dwindles down.)

With a sprayed hot griddle or cast iron pan with a splash of olive oil, dip slices of your favorite bread in the batter. Turn and do the same on the other side.

~Next, place on the hot griddle. Brown, then flip.

~Once both sides are brown, remove and do the same with the next batch. Serve HOT with fresh churned butter and local maple syrup from your local foods store or farmer. AMAZING!!! So good!

Indeed there are many ways to make french toast; however this is my favorite because:

  1. You can substitute seasonings. My kids love the bakery apple pie seasoning, pumpkin pie seasoning and cardamom as well. Have fun & change it up. It is still delicious!!!
  2. Although we are fans of fresh churned butter and our fresh maple syrup most of all; we have also used a variety of toppings. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, thimbleberry syrup, honey, sprinkled powdered sugar, fruit whip, yogurt or cool whip are some of the few choices!!!
  3. Speaking of substitutes, how about the bread. Sliced hoagies are among my children’s favorites. The thick bread soaks in the small sliced, filling them with delicious flavor. Others include: french bread, sour dough (apple sour bread is AMAZING as french toast), cinnamon raisin or fruit breads work well too! (Even zucchini bread)

As you can see, with all these options, this is why we rank this recipe at the top of French toast recipes!

To improve overall taste, make with fresh brown eggs!!! Note that depending on the bread you select, this usually feeds 1 adult & 4 children. I do double the recipe if a thick heavy bread that will soak up a large amount of batter. Happy Homemaking!!!

(I have diced mine small in a mandaline chopper for young children and add 2 cans of chopped carrots run through the mandaline chopper as well.) Heat. Bring to a boil slowly. Then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. (Veggies should be soft and tender.)

~Once heated thoroughly, remove from heat. Continually stir and add 4-5 Cups of shredded cheddar cheese.

Reese’s Pieces Frosted Brownies

Let me just say these will satisfy any sweet tooth. Whether your in a pinch or just want to spend less time in the kitchen, these simple brownies will be a hit, and no one will know if they are homemade or boxed mix. Dress up plain brownies ready for a special feast or potluck in 5 minutes.

~Start with you favorite brownies. Here is a from scratch recipe, I doubled it for thick chocolate lover brownie in a 9 X 13 (deep) pan. Otherwise have a 9 X 13 pan of brownies cooled.

~First, with 1 cup of softened butter, cream in 1 cup of peanut butter.

~When creamed together, add 3 cups of powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time.

~ Add 3 tablespoons of milk to get frosting at the appropriate consistency. You can add up to 2 more tablespoons if you really just want a thin layer of peanut butter frosting.

~Top cooled brownies with frosting.

~ Gently sprinkle 1 Cup of Reese’s pieces candy overtop the frosting. Let sit.

DIY Fried Apples (Cracker Barrel Version)

Stewed apples, fried apples, do I need to say more? Perhaps the only 100 % kid loving recipe. My kiddos think it’s dessert at breakfast. I usually double this recipe and serve it as a side (with my substitute version) at breakfast. Whatever is left over, I run it through a food processor or mash up with a potato masher. It then goes into snack, depending on how much is left. It works great in breakfast muffins, mini apple pie pockets, in a pancake batter in the electric mini donate maker, glazed turnovers for a special occasion, or just as a topping.

~With an iron skillet or fry pan, warm 3 Tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Cut into wedges and cored, slice and add 4 medium apples (Golden delicious works the best.)

~Add 1/4 Cup sugar, 2 Tablespoons of dark brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Stir until everything is evenly coated and warm. Cover and cook for about 12 minutes or until the apples are soft. Transfer to the serving dish and cover to keep warm.

~In a cup, beat 1/2 Cup of apple cider and 1 Tablespoon of corn starch. Over medium high heat whisk in the same skillet as previous. Stir constantly to blend and thicken aft 1 minute of simmering. Pour mixture over the apples and serve. (This recipe is lovely on vanilla ice cream as well!)

Happy homemaking! Enjoy!!!

However, right around this time of year, chickens around the world begin to pick up on their egg laying. For others, within a couple months. SO, what does one do with all those eggs? For the month of February, everyday I will post a recipe that contains at consumes 6, or more eggs.
