“Cowboy Surprise”- Breakfast Casserole…Easy ‘n Good!

This is a great dish for breakfast for several people. We were attending a rodeo twenty years ago, with our 5th wheel, along with our grandson. I misjudged the oven in the camper and its ability to produce. I waited and waited and waited, and the casserole wasn’t done. Finally, it was ready. My grandson commented, “We could just call this “Cowboy Surprise”…and so we do…every year on Christmas morning for our family breakfast..

2 packages shredded potatoes

1 onion-shredded

1 green pepper-shredded

2 dozen scrambled eggs

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

2 lb chopped, cooked bacon/or sausage/or ham

Mix together, bake in LARGE oblong cake pan. Line pan with aluminum or parchment paper for easier cleanup.

450 Degrees 45 minutes Serves 10…

Scrambled eggs tend to continue cooking after removal from the oven..don’t wait until they look finished or they’ll be dry.

Good luck with your Cowboy Surprise. It’s pretty tasty. And…the memories get better every year.

Mom’s Macaroni and Cheese

One of my Mother’s favorite casserole recipes. She had many. Written in pencil on the back of a place mat, it’s in her handwriting. Seeing her handwriting is precious to me. It isn’t fancy, but it’s good if my Mother is sharing it.

8 oz  Macaroni

3 T  Oleo

2 C  Milk

2 T  Cornstarch or flour

1/4 C  Grated Onion

1/2  t  Dry Mustard

1/4 t  Worcestershire Sauce

1/4  t  Salt

1/8 t  Pepper

8 oz  Grated Cheddar Cheese

Cook macaroni. Drain and place in buttered 2 qt casserole.. In sauce pan melt butter, saute onion, stir in flour.  Slowly add milk until thickened. Add spices, cheese, stir until melted.  Pour over macaroni, sprinkle with crumbs.  Bake at 350 deg 30-40 minutes. (She didn’t say what kind of crumbs. You’ll have to figure that out for yourself.)
