Sausage & Egg Bake

I was looking to clean up some items in the fridge and freezer when my husband suggested an egg bake for breakfast. We had 1/2 bag of hashbrowns that needed eating in the freezer and some left over sausage from a round of pigs in blankets. So, I took stock of the veggies on hand and put together the following recipe in time for breakfast. It’s one thing I love about cooking breakfast – it’s so quick and easy! Enjoy…

A Raclette Dinner Party

We thoroughly enjoy hosting a “gathering” of friends and co-workers for a party. The only problem is getting around to visit with everyone in attendance. It doesn’t seem to matter if there are 20 or 50. With good intentions, almost everyone is personally greeted at the door but if you’re lucky, you may get a chance to say a quick goodbye. Lots of activities and conversations steal your attention throughout the evening and make it challenging to fairly make the rounds. So, this time around, we decided to invite 3 couples for an intimate dinner party of 6. It didn’t take long to decide the menu – Raclette.

What is raclette? It’s a fondue-type Swiss and French meal made with potatoes and melted cheese, but without a pot of melted cheese and long sticks. First, make sure you have a raclette grill. Mine is a square Hamilton Beach grill with 8 cheese trays, but it is best used with only 6 guests. Therefore, if you really want to serve 4 couples, I would recommend Amazon’s Choice SwissMar grill as the grill surface is larger and the rectangular shape would make it easier for guests 7 & 8 to reach.
