I will tell you a secret. I really don’t like making breakfast. I don’t know why. Well, yes I do. I hate mornings. I really dislike everything about them except for the coffee. In fact, pretty much everyone I live with knows that they probably just shouldn’t talk to or ask too many questions of this 1950’s woman of glamor before I have had my coffee in the morning.
I have always been a night owl and I just prefer to stay up late and sleep late. It is actually why I home school my kids. You know, so I don’t have to get up and get kids ready for school before the sun is up. OMG! You know, making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and filling lunch boxes, cleaning eye boogies, teeth brushing, arguments over which outfit they are wearing, rushing down the street for the bus in my housecoat and ruining my image. That. Would. Be. Torture. For. Me.
I am kidding about why I home school. Or am I?
Anyway, back to the food. I wish I could remember where I got this recipe. I have been making it for our family for as long as I can remember. It is really quite easy and delicious. You can easily make a double batch if you have a lot of people to feed.
The beauty of this dish is that you really can put anything you want in it. You can kick it up southwest style and use bacon, add some red pepper flakes, chopped green onions, chopped tomatoes, etc. and instead of gravy, top it with sour cream and guacamole. In fact, that sounds like a great idea! I think I will make that soon.
** For the vegetarian version, just leave out the meat.
