For my last post, I shared how to make your own cream of chicken soup-- specifically for making recipes that lists "one can cream of chicken soup". This version is so quick, and so simple to do. So what did I make with this? I made a sausage potato casserole. I sure did. It was triggered by a company potluck, where someone made a casserole similar to this, and I had to see if I could create my own recipe.
I finally did it, after two attempts to get the recipe tweaked to just the way I wanted it. The first go-round, I didn't have canned cream of chicken soup, so I tried some other ingredient. It turned out watery, and while it tasted okay, it didn't rock my world.
TASTING NOTES: I had to quickly write down how I made this, because I know this will be Christmas morning breakfast for my men...and for me! I love hash browns, anyway. Combine that with sausage, onions, bell pepper-- and the tang of sour cream, and plenty of melted cheese... it's a hearty and very satisfying breakfast dish. To make things go fast, for Christmas morning, I'll cook the sausage and veggies ahead of time, then assemble the casserole in the morning. This made about 8 servings, and can easily be doubled to feed a larger crowd. This reheated so well, that we enjoyed it for a few more breakfasts.
Okay, so I have Christmas morning breakfast figured out. Over the next week, or so, I hope to share some Christmas treat recipes that I've made. My Winter Break vacation starts in one week, so I'll have more time to do more baking and to share more posts with you.
Even better, my son is flying home (from Texas) for Christmas! Mama is very happy about that.
