I was looking through my cookbooks last night, trying to figure out what I wanted to feed my children on their second day of school. I finally found just the thing in my 1996 Betty Crocker’s New Cookbook. It was called Brunch Oven Omelet.
I had to send the Nanny to the store at 6:30 a.m. (she didn’t want to go at 11 p.m. last night) and get sour cream and some sausage bites for the recipe. She got home just before 7 a.m. and I set out to get breakfast made.
First thing I noticed was what kind of sausage bites she bought.
Hot and Spicy. Huh? Really?!
I decided to go ahead and make it, with the hot and spicy sausage crumbles. I can just give the boys some extra milk.
I put it in the oven at 7:14 and it said to cook it for 25 minutes. At 7:45, the timer went off and I went to pull it out.
I burnt my thumb (a rare occurrence) and unfortunately, breakfast was still liquid.
I put it back in for 10 more minutes and then 5 more minutes more. At just shy of 8 a.m., I gave up and fed my boys some of the left over cereal from the beginning of summer. My friend Meg calls it, “Twigs.” It’s actually Kashi Go-Lean. I used to feed it to my children in place of all the other cereals. It has an amazing amount of protein and my boys would eat it with some fruit or yogurt.
I told them to hurry and they tried. They were starving, so it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I turned off the oven (as it still wasn’t cooked) and left the breakfast inside to (hopefully) finish cooking while I ran the boys to school. We weren’t late but I felt the rush for half the way to the school.
When we got home from dropping the boys off, Jen and I looked in the oven. It was done and slightly burnt.
If just a tad bit spicy.
We ate some and the rest will be eaten for lunch. It was rather good and I’m glad I made it. I just need to figure out the cooking time, now. I can’t quite believe that the Betty Crocker cook book is wrong on the cooking time, so something else must have gone wrong.
Oh, and my thumb still hurts.
Thank you for listening,
