Breakfast Pies and Our Menu Plan

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed the Halloween Party Food! Doug and I had fun creating it for you. We will be sharing a little re-cap plus some more fun recipes that we thought you might like, next week.

It’s funny how you can get inspiration for a recipe. This past weekend, Doug, Casey {our youngest son} and I walked uptown to look at the stores and ended up having a late lunch. On the restaurants breakfast menu they had Breakfast Pies, I told Doug right away they would be great to share with you all.

So we talked about the ingredients, changed it up a bit and Doug came up with this amazing little pie that is great for a hearty Breakfast or even Dinner.

This little Breakfast Pie combines everything that makes up a great breakfast, from the seasoned hash browns to the fluffy egg interior and to finish it off we served it on a bed of creamy sausage gravy. You can add more of your favorite breakfast ingredients to change this up for your family, I could see adding some ham and onion to make a Western style pie or adding bacon for another meat. Have some fun and explore some different combinations.

We’ll be showing you how to make your own sausage gravy later this week so be sure to stop back.
