Yesterday, I was in a quirky mood, and amused myself by laughing at the stuff contained in the dreaded “Company Cookbook”.
Katie spent about 10 hours on campus yesterday, and I listened to Bar Exam review CDs. So, we decided to slum it a bit, and make something along the line of these concoctions found in the company cookbook. We settled on a Sausage and Egg Casserole. We ended up doing this one, straight from the Jimmy Dean website.
It turns out that “Serves 6” means it serves six guys named Hagrid, and more named Ron. Its bloody huge.
Now, the good news. The texture of this thing is somewhere between a fritatta and a souffle. Its light, fluffy, and filling. It probably does need more cheese than is called for. We used white onion, a package of sliced mushrooms, and about 3 tablespoons of canned tomato (we had leftovers) as the so-called optional ingredients, and sauteed them after the sausage was done, then continued normally.
So – was it terrrrrrrifically terrrrrrrrifying like the company cookbook? No. Was it great? No. It was however pretty tasty? Yeah. I’d make it again, especially if I needed to serve breakfast to a lot of people who aren’t terribly picky about what they want, so long as its hot and in large quantities.
