Christmas Strata Breakfast Casserole

Melt 2 tbs butter in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.

Place single layer of bread (I like to use cookie cutters for the bread!) on the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle chunks of sausage (or ham or bacon) over the bread, and a generous layer of cheese over that. Cover with another layer of bread and brush top of the bread with melted butter.

Pour milk and egg mixture (4 eggs and 2 C of milk) evenly over the layers.

Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 325 degrees in the morning for about an hour.

As seen on "The Family Stone"

I am a little dissapointed

I want people to read my blog, and interact with it. But I have no followers, I am so sad. :( What to do what to do... Isn't it pointless to blog unless somebody reads it?

I should know better...

Than to start reading a book when i don't have an entire day to waste engrossing myself in it. I love to read. My favorite authors are Mary Higgens Clark and Nora Roberts. I love the romantic suspense novels. But then again, i will read just about anything. My alltime favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I love the lessons that you learn throughout the book. It is also excellently written. Right now I am tied up in the love affair of Lilah Calhoun and Dr. Maxwell Quartermain and the mystery of the missing emeralds in Nora Roberts' Mini Series "The Calhoun Women". I am reading Lilah and Suzanne.

I love escaping into another world and just reading. Once I start I have to drag myself away. Especially when I have a house to clean and laundry to do, lol.

Good Mornin' World

Wow, I am super tired this morning! Thank goodness I have this AMAZING cup of coffee to help me out! My little boy is watching Franklin, and my husband is sleeping. On Franklin they are "tapping" trees to make their own maple syrup. Which reminds me of Christmas. I know, its a stretch but here's why.

I got my Christmas ham yesterday! And I am going to make my very own (and also very first) Maple Brown sugar glazed ham! I wish I could be as crafty as Franklin and his friends and have my very own maple syrup so my ham would be even more homemade from scratch! What's on your Christmas menu? Here is mine!

Homemade mashed potatoes
Homemade Mac and cheese

Thats Christmas Dinner, and I am going to make an amazing breakfast for us to eat before we open presents! I am making Baked French Toast!

You mix together, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, sugar, and milk
You cut french toast into 12 slices, about 1 to 1 1/2 inch thick and place them in a casserole dish, pour the egg mixture over the bread and refrigerate over night. Put in the oven at 350 degrees for about 35 min or until tops are slightly turning brown and..... tada!!! You can Dust with Powdered sugar if you want!

Thats all for now, when my brain fills up again ill come back
