Sunday Breakfast for two. (me and my oldest daughter, a veggie head who also doesn't like onions )































Couldn't get her to try the gravy....she doesn't know what she's missing! Anyway, as I said on John's SOS post, I don't see the problem using pre-prepared items if you are happy with the quality and taste of the product.

These biscuits are very good, not as good as a made from scratch biscuit, (but even that depends on how good the person making them is at doing it) but still good enough and a big time/mess saver.

I would have liked to put onions in my home fries, but have to accomodate someone else's taste and didn't feel like making two separate pans. Somehow it all worked and I was fat and happy when all was said and done, who could ask for more?

    Desert, I totally agree with the biscuts, I buy a similar product. The convenience makes up for any small differences. paired with frozen sausage patties you can go from freezer to brkfst/snack in 15 minutes or less

        Nice job! When I do finally have a breakfast (not often) this one would fill the bill nicely!

          I have been staying at the Residence Inn by Marriott for the last six months. Each morning they do a breakfast and the biscuits and gravy are regular. I am not sure what the biscuits are or the brand but they are pretty good.

          Each morning they have:

          Biscuit
          Gravy
          Scramble eggs
          Waffles
          Boiled eggs
          Cereal
          Jelly
          Breads
          Salsa
          Butter
          Pancakes
          Pork sausage
          Peanut butter

          Pretty good for $100 a night. They also have a nightly dinner except for Friday, Saturday and Sunday

              What's IN the pan, or what kind of pan is it?

              To answer both, I browned the sausage and had just added flour to make the roux...you see it bubbling nicely in the third picture. The pan is a Calaphan Essentials.

                Yep, desertdog, you really know how to do breakfast! That's exactly the way I do it, even down to the frozen biscuits. And the eggs are beautiful!! The first thing I have to do when I get a new cook (I really am a lunch lady; breakfast,too) is make sure they know how to cook scrambled eggs. You wouldn't believe how excited the kiddos get when they come in off the bus and see those lovely fluffy eggs on the line!

                  Gee! you guys are killing me. That sure beats the hell out of my daily rasher of oatmeal and fresh fruit. Yesterday I had to make donuts because of another thread here. My neighbours were happy though.

                  I love those frozen biscuts, but I don't buy them anymore because I eat them. Chow Jim

                    You did it again DD, home fries without onions oh well, you do what you have to do. We always have a bag of frozen biscuits in the freezer.

                      Thanks, John...you gotta understand my situation...vegetarian AND has a morbid fear and revulsion of onions! Even the smell... I know, sucks being me...

                      Hey Jim, This was Monday morning...



                      Eating right and exercising is something someone should do MOST of the time, not ALL of the time. A book by the guy from Men's Health (THE ABS DIET) steered me in the right direction.

                      I love food and cooking and you shouldn't give up the things you love, but one has to draw the line. My Dad died at 68 from congestive heart failure, I don't care to go down the same road, so I pick and choose when I allow myself to indulge, then cool it for the rest of the week.

                      I overdid it this weekend, but today is Monday, it's a new week and it's time to get back on schedule! (Having a wife that is a fitness guru helps...)

                      DD
