Bam’s Sausage Breakfast Bake


Bam's Sausage Breakfast Bake is the perfect brunch dish!I’ve been thinking about the days when Mr. Comfortable and I had a full house. I never sent the kids to school with a cold breakfast. I had this idea they learned better if they had a hot breakfast in their bellies. Bam’s Sausage Breakfast Bake was a favorite.

Bam’s Beef Chili with Cornbread Croutons

Mr. Comfortable and I go to Pete’s house to watch the show and I have been itching for it to return. But first I had to take care of dinner. In the spirit of trying to like fall I decided to make a cold weather dish. It was a bit strange though. Earlier I’d been outside in a t-shirt and shorts while Remy and Henry played. It was so warm it felt more like early summer than late October. But, being a semi-good sport I came inside and made Bam’s Beef Chili with Cornbread Croutons.

Rich & hearty beef chili with cornbread croutons!

Since I finally admitted, or rather my body forced me to admit, that I am sick Mr. Comfortable and I have been eating well with very little work. But I also wanted to so more than just make another slow cooker meal so I prepared the Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs a little differently.
