Hearty Sausage and Egg Skillet Breakfast

Hearty Sausage and Egg Skillet Breakfast

A few weeks ago I was trying to come up with a hearty, tasty breakfast idea that would make a large amount and keep well in the refrigerator so we could just scoop out a bowlful and heat it up for a quick, nutritious, substantial meal to start our day.  I had made breakfast burritos for our San Juan Sailing trip in September so I just made a variation of that filling.  It turned out really well and we loved it ~ and it’s creamy cheesiness is delicious.  There are so many possibilities to customize this dish to suit your tastes ~ add any veggies you like, any cheese you like {next time I’ll use pepper-jack}, and any seasonings you like.  I think it would be really good with chunked up ham, too.

These pictures don’t do it justice so you’ll have to believe me when I say if you like sausage, egg, and cheese you’ll love this.  If you love breakfast burritos you’ll love this.  If you like all of the previously mentioned items with veggies you’ll love this.  And you can make as much as you want ~ just alter the ingredient amounts.

Chocolate Topped Peanut Butter Cookies

 

Chocolate Topped Peanut Butter Cookies

Hello Friends. I’ve been in a cookie baking mood lately.

You know how some cookies are really fun to make and then it’s such a nice surprise when they taste just as delicious as they look? Well, this is that cookie.

I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter and decided to make some Chocolate Topped Peanut Butter Cookies that were inspired by these cookies from Betty Crocker, which are similar to the peanut butter cookie with a hershey kiss on top that you’ve probably all seen. I used my basic peanut butter cookie recipe and instead of topping with a chocolate candy I just melted chocolate chips because I didn’t plan ahead and buy candies. But the melted chips worked great and I actually like the look better, and with some sprinkles they look fun and festive for any occasion. And one other thing I liked about using chocolate chips is that the cookies weren’t overly chocolatey – just the right balance.

This recipe makes about 10 dozen cookies so right after the chocolate was completely cooled and set up I bagged them up and they’re ready for sharing with friends and neighbors. These cookies are so cute and they received so many comments on how cute they are so the next time you need to make cookies for a party or to share give these little cuties a try.

Yield: about 10 dozen cookies

Chocolate Topped Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar (for rolling the dough in)
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a medium size bowl, mix together the salt, baking soda, and flour. Set aside.
  2. Place the chocolate chips in a bowl and melt them in the microwave, 1 minute at a time, until they are completely melted. Then set the microwave on the keep-warm setting, if yours has one (otherwise, use the lowest power setting), to keep the chips melted for use after the cookies bake.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until it's creamy.
  4. Add the sugar and brown sugar and beat until the sugars and butter are well mixed, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the peanut butter and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  6. Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix each one in well.
  7. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix just until well combined.
  8. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll the balls in the sugar. Place evenly on a baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 8 minutes, or until the cookies are just beginning to brown lightly.
  10. Immediately after removing the cookies from the oven, while they are still on the baking sheet, lightly press the top of each cookie down with the back of a spoon.
  11. Using a spoon, drizzle a small amount of melted chocolate onto the center of each cookie and spread it around.
  12. Top with sprinkles, if desired.
  13. Remove the cookies to a cooling rack to completely cool.

Slow Cooker Creamy Ranch Chicken

For some reason I haven’t fully embraced slow cooker cooking. I like the idea of putting the ingredients in the cooker early in the day, not needing to think about it again until the dinner hour is near, and smelling the good fragrances all afternoon. But I still prefer stove-top or oven cooking to the […]
