Hobo Skillet MMMmmmmm

So, I’ve been under the fog that everyone knew what a Hobo Skillet was.  Apparently, it was only a “thing” at my house growing up.  Surely, there’s another name for this yummy goodness of a meal but a Hobo Skillet is what my family called it.  I mean no disrespect to real hobos.  They can call it a Trinity Skillet for all I care:)  Wanna hear it?  Here it go.

1.  In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat.

2.  Add potatoes and cook until halfway done. (about 7 minutes)

3.  Pour in sausage and stir.

4.  Make wells for eggs

5.  Crack eggs into said wells

6.  Cover and reduce heat to somewhere between simmer and medium heat.  I’m going to call it “smedium”.

P.S. This is a dumbed down version of what my Mom made.  If you want a “non box” recipe, you’d substitute the Potatoes O’Brien package for about 6-8 small peeled and cubed red potatoes, one small onion, 1/4 green bell pepper and 1/4 red bell pepper.  Then, substitute the precooked sausage with a package of breakfast sausage.

Do Not Eat This

I’m pretty sure that I only have like 4 people that follow my blog, at this point. That being said, it is 4 more people that I will be able to warn about this horrible box meal.

This week we’ve only gotten to go to school one day. I’ve made “comfort food” for us until we are just about comfort fooded out. I decided it would be a good idea to try this Banquet Morning Bake. Apparently, I was on drugs at the time of purchase because this was a horrible idea.

Do not eat this! I repeat, DO NOT EAT THIS!!!

The. End.

Breakfast Pizza MMmmmmm

I’ve been perusing Pinterest lately and came across a few recipes for breakfast pizza.  It got me thinking about the breakfast pizza in our cafeteria when I was in grade school.  It probably isn’t served anymore…don’t get me started… Anyway, I found a few recipes and decided to give it a go.  I gave it my own twist to pay homage to the cafeteria ladies of yore.   And here we go!

Breakfast Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Crescent Rolls (2 tubes)
  • 6-8 Pieces of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1 C Cheddar shredded
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 Can Country Gravy

1.  Start by preheating the oven to 400°.  Take the crescent rolls out and put them on a non stick jellyroll pan. Lay them close together and press the seams so they make one continuous piece of dough.  You could probably use one can but we do like our bread so I used two.  Also, I used a store brand and the quality wasn’t so great.  I’d probably use the more expensive brand next time.  It sounds like Pills-Berry.  Anyway, bake the crust about 5-7 minutes,

2.  Fry your bacon.  I used really cheap bacon because I knew it was sliced thin.  I wanted to crumble my bacon all over the top, so using the cheaper stuff was the way to go.  Once you are done frying, create a shout out to your Mom and then crumble your bacon into tiny little bits.

3.  When the crust comes out, spread the gravy over the top, leaving about an inch edge around the perimeter.  Top with cheese, bacon and eggs.  Bake for 12-14 minutes.

photo 5I ended up baking ours longer trying to get the middles done…because someone, who shall remain nameless, in our house doesn’t like runny middles!  What?!  I know…  Next time I think I’ll scramble the eggs and see how that turns out.  I hope the lunch ladies would be proud:)
