a kickin’ breakfast

happy team

Saturday was a big day in my husband’s world.  That’s because he’s a huge football fan (that’s soccer to all you Americans), and this weekend marked the FA Cup Final: one of the biggest matches of the year.  This year’s contenders for Football Association champs?  Chelsea, who win a LOT, and Everton, the underdogs.

Simon had some friends over to watch the match and, because his birthday was two weeks ago, we celebrated that, too.  Most of us were pulling for Everton – who doesn’t like to see the underdogs come out on top? – and it looked good when the boys in blue scored a goal in the first minute of the match.  But alas, Chelsea came back and scored two goals, winning the title 2-1.

Ah well.  At least there was some good breakfast food – the match came on at 3pm in England, which meant it was live here in NC at 10am.  

I’d also like to brag about the fact that my breakfast casserole got rave reviews, including two proclamations of “This is the best breakfast casserole I’ve ever had.”  Want the recipe?  I thought you might.


1 can flaky Grands biscuits

1 lb. sausage cooked and crumbled

1lb. bacon, cooked

8 oz. grated cheddar

8 eggs, beaten with a little milk

Spray a glass casserole dish (you know, the long ones?) with some cooking spray, then pull apart the layers of the biscuits and line the bottom and sides of the dish with them.  Now add the rest of the ingredients in layers: first the cooked sausage, then the crumbled bacon, then the cheese, and finally the eggs.  Bake that thing at 350 F for about half and hour, and bask in the glory of the Best Breakfast Casserole Ever.
