Deep Creek and Breakfast Casserole

Well, I'm back from another weekend away! Had a blast with some friends in McHenry, Maryland at Deep Creek Lake. It was my first time there, and it was absolutely beautiful - here is the view from my friend Corey's house where we stayed:


Over the weekend everyone had a turn to make a meal - Meg and I were responsible for Saturday morning breakfast. Success! We made a super easy and delicious egg and sausage casserole. The recipe came from Megs fantastic cook of a mother, Nancy, and is called "Dad's Xmas Morning Egg Casserole." Super easy to make, and very convenient because you can put most of it together the night before:

Dad's Xmas Morning Egg Casserole:

1 lb sausage 
1/2 lb shredded sharp cheese
1/2 t dry mustard
1/2 t paprika
1 t salt
1 C sour cream
1 dozen eggs

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees
Coat a 2-3 qt dish with Pam or substitute and put 1/2 of the cheese on bottom of dish
Cook and drain sausage
Mix spices with sour cream
Add cooked sausage to sour cream mixture
Spread sour cream sausage mixture over cheese 
(above part can be done the night before)
Beat eggs and pour over sausage mixture
Place in oven for 30-40 minutes (best way to check if it is done is to give the pan a shake to make sure the eggs are fully cooked)

We weren't the only ones who did good, the weekend involved lots of other fantastic eats and drinks:

In addition to eating, we also did lots of boating:

Lots of hanging out and games:

And of course, lots of dancing:

Good times!

cheers. xo.
