Mornings. You either love them, or hate them. The older I get, the more I’ve learned to love them. I never used eat breakfast, which became a bad habit. Who had time for breakfast? It was feeding everyone in the house first, then throwing a quick load of wash in, unload the dishwasher, oh now
Mornings. You either love them, or hate them. The older I get, the more I’ve learned to love them. I never used eat breakfast, which became a bad habit. Who had time for breakfast? It was feeding everyone in the house first, then throwing a quick load of wash in, unload the dishwasher, oh now my kiddo needs a snack, then hang those clothes outside on the line, and before you know it it’s mid-morning so I might as well wait till lunch now. That was my life over a year ago, until I made changes. Now I make sure I take better care of myself, and got into a nice morning routine, which makes me enjoy mornings so much more. My devotions, exercise, and breakfast are a big part of my mornings now, along with taking care of my family. I realized how important breakfast was! Now I can’t go without it.
Even at a young age, I wasn’t a big breakfast person, or a morning person at all for that matter. Ugh MORNINGS! Couldn’t noon be my time to wake up and start my day? Pretty sure every teenage kid goes through this. My dad used to come in my room, and would do different things to wake me up in the morning. Let’s see; he would pick my mattress up and drop it, that would get me up. Or, he would go over to my dresser and turn my boom box on, turn it up, say “Good Morning Wissy!” and just walk on out. Little shyster he was! Wissy is my dad’s nickname for me. That’s a whole other story for another day. But dads. Good ‘ol dads. Waking us up at 9 a.m. on a Saturday. What are they thinking!? Ahh, the days when we were young!
Now, I love being prepared for breakfast. I have so many quick little recipes for just one person or the whole family. This recipe has to be one of my favorites. My kids seriously can’t get enough of them. The best part is you can make them the day before, then just pop them into your oven when you wake up! Makes for a nice family weekend breakfast. If the smell or thought of these little puppies in the morning doesn’t get you rollin’ out of bed, then I don’t know what will!
Sausage, Egg n’ Cheese Maple Risers
• 12 pork sausage patties
• 12 Hawaiian dinner rolls
• 6 large eggs, scrambled
• 6 slices sharp cheese
• 1/2 cup butter, melted
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Heat large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage to skillet and cook until completely cooked through. You want the outside nice and brown!
Meanwhile, using a serrated knife, cut rolls in half lengthwise (without breaking them apart). Place bottom half of rolls in 7×10-inch or 9×13-inch baking dish; set tops aside. No need to grease pan. Place well drained sausage patties on top of each roll.
Now, you want to start scrambling those eggs. Just add a splash of milk and a little pepper. Mix well. You want a thin layer, and I found the easiest way was to use my griddle, then cut it into squares and place it on top of the sausage.
Saving the best for last — combine melted butter and maple syrup in small bowl. Brush over tops of rolls allowing sauce to drip down sides and into bottom. Use the entire amount. (If you make these the day before, top syrup right before baking.)
Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and melted. Serve and enjoy Every. Single. Bite!
