#foodiefriday~~Happy #birthday son!~~#brinnertime


Yesterday was my son’s birthday. I won’t say how old since that gives away my age  LOL.  Usually, we do his birthday tonight, but he has to work so we did it earlier in the week.

I always let the kids choose a meal for their birthday. They are usually pretty predictable. He likes what he dubs as brinner.  Simply, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits, and gravy.  This year I am adding a hashbrown casserole to the mix.  Instead of cake, I usually just make cupcakes since he isn’t a desert fan, but I surprise him this year with his favorite dessert my mom made. Homemade chocolate pie.

I was going to share some  pictures of the dishes and the family enjoying them but life happened and he wasn’t able to do the dinner this week. We are postponing it till next week since my granddaughter Kira is starting cheer camp this week and he had to take her yesterday for her physical and first meeting.

Some people have trouble making gravy getting it either too thick or too thin. I use to have that trouble myself then I finally broke down and used a recipe. Yes, I do use recipes from time to time. Especially now since I have very little memory from day to day.

Here is a simple guide to gravy. ( This is  milk gravy)

Sausage grease( a few tablespoons)

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

3 cups milk

I find it’s best to use meat grease. Sausage, bacon, chicken, pork chops all make a delicious gravy. If you are vegetarian use canola or vegetable oil, though it isn’t as rich.

Sprinkle the flour in the grease. It should be a thin creamy paste. Cook a minute to get the floury taste out add, salt and pepper. Slowly stir in milk. Using a whisk cook until thick. You can crumble your sausage in the gravy, but I serve it separately and let everyone crumble how much they want.

I am making home-made biscuits as well. Here is the recipe I use.

Here is the recipe for the Hashbrown casserole that  I am making it’s a copy cat Crackerbarrel one.


Now for the pies. I am cheating using frozen crusts. Mom made those herself. Mine usually falls apart.

I will use this recipe.  Mom used this when she first started making them, of course, she made so many she didn’t need a recipe.

I will top with meringue but not a deep one.

Do you like breakfast for dinner? What’s one of your favorites?

If you can dream it…you can do it.
