Saturday Morning Treat

As far as I'm concerned life doesn't get much better than lounging around in your pj's for hours. Catching up on all the magazines piled month high on my bedside stand and various other spots around the house.  Of course this kind of treat is only possible if somebody else is happy to be the grown up, get dressed and make breakfast for the ever ravenous baintrain.  Apparently Saturday was my get-out-of-being-a-real-grown-up morning because  I lounged and mainbain brought me coffee. I read and he re-filled my cup. A few boys climbed into bed with me and we read foodie mags and dog books and planned menus and what our next dog would be.   I mosied into the kitchen to see what he was making;  the man asked one pertinent question about his breakfast concoction and told me to go get back in bed.   Yep, he's a keeper!

Thought you might like his latest recipe; it's Junior League quality, in my opinion. The baintrain was pleasantly filled and there were a few pieces left over. 

::Saturday Morning Treat::

2 c leftover grits 
12 fresh eggs, with 1/2 c. sour cream blended in
1/2 lb browned sausage - from our barn freezer
2 c shredded cheese

His instructions:

Preheat your oven to 375 - convection if you've got it. Brown the sausage and butter a 9X13 baking pan.  Press grits into bottom of pan, and spread sausage as evenly as possible on top. Dot approximately 1/2 stick of butter on top of the sausage.  We are not fat-phobes, can you tell? (He actually used our farm fresh lard, but you won't be able to find it, so just use butter.) Blend sour cream and eggs and pour over top of sausage.  Sprinkle cheese on top of the whole thing and bake at 375 for about an hour.  
The butter and sausage will create an astonishing crust, incredibly light and delish paired with the grits.  

Lounge and let him be the grown up!
