My Favorite Thanksgiving Breakfasts

Around my house, Thanksgiving is filled with a day of cooking. Most years I opt for a smaller breakfast for two reasons. One, I know that I will need my stove and oven for most of the day. Second, I know there will be a ton to eat later in the day. Here are three of my favorite Thanksgiving breakfast ideas.

Shepard’s Skillet

  • Ã?· Ingredient list:
  • Ã?· 3c of Shredded potatoes
  • Ã?· Ã?½ pound of Bacon
  • Ã?· 6 large Eggs

The first thing I like to do is cut the bacon in about two inch strips. I fry up the bacon first, that way I can use the grease to crisp the shredded potatoes. After I fry up the bacon and the potatoes are good and golden I make six little wells in the mixture and put one egg into each well. I leave it alone until the egg whites are done and the yellows are still runny. Perfectly sunny side up. To serve, I use a giant spoon to scoop out one egg and the mixture into each plate. I can usually serve four to six people with each skillet.

Breakfast Pizza

Ingredient List:

  • Ã?· 1 small onion
  • Ã?· 1 pound ground sausage
  • Ã?· One dozen eggs
  • Ã?· 2 cups shredded cheese
  • Ã?· 1 cup thawed spinach
  • Ã?· (2) 8 inch pie crusts

First thing you need to do is preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Usually I dice the onion and place it in a medium skillet with the ground sausage, stirring occasionally until the sausage is browned and the onions are translucent. While it is browning I drain the spinach in a strainer. Once the sausage is browned and the spinach is drained I combine the two and set aside. In two 8 inch pie pans I lay out the pie crusts. I then divide the sausage spinach onion mixture into the two pans. In a large bowl beat the eggs and then distribute into the two pans. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until the eggs are set. I can feed six to twelve people with the two pizzas.

Cinnamon Bread

Ingredient list:

  • Ã?· 2c bisquick baking mix
  • Ã?· 1c milk
  • Ã?· 2tsp cinnamon
  • Ã?· Ã?½ c of brown sugar
  • Ã?· 1c of powdered sugar

Heat your over to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×8 round cake pan with your favorite cooking spray. In a large bowl mix baking mix, milk, cinnamon, and brown sugar until combined. Transfer into baking pan and bake until it is golden brown and the whole house smells like cinnamon. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve. Feeds 4-6 people. I love this recipe because it is so easy to double or triple if you have a large crowd. This is definitely my kids favorite breakfast.
