A great sausage egg bake is the perfect breakfast in my mind. This goes together in a flash, and will have your whole family asking for seconds.
Sausage Egg Bake
Happy almost Easter everyone! We love this particular holiday around here. Not only for the awesome food traditionally included and the copious amounts of candy available to
steal borrow from my kids, but also because of the significance of what the holiday represents. He is risen! Yes indeed!
My faith wouldn’t be possible with the event that Easter represents. The resurrection of Christ is essential to Christianity. No resurrection, no divinity, and then we are left with Christ being just a regular man who did some cool things.
Did you know that there are several non-religious historical texts that independently document the validity of the resurrection?
When I was first investigating and searching out what this whole Christianity thing was all about, I was amazed to find that out. I thought the bible was just a book. A fiction novel, of sorts. I couldn’t have been further from the truth! I am no apologist, so if you would like to know more I’d love to point you in the right direction.
A book essential to my search was Lee Strobel’s A Case For Christ. Right now you can get both A Case for Christ & A Case for Faith – Lee Strobel for only $4.99 for the Kindle versions over on Amazon. If you ever had any questions about the history, validity, or accuracy of the bible, I highly recommend them.
This year we are hosting Easter dinner for the family, and I’m so excited! Here is our menu for the day.
Ham using Mel’s Kitchen Cafe’s recipe.
Seriously check her out. I LOVE her blog, and guess what?? She’s from Northern Minnesota too! Iron Rangers unite! I have no idea if she’s actually near the Iron Range, since Northern Minnesota is actually a pretty huge area, but meh? Close enough…;)
Next up is my cheesy scalloped potatoes.
I’m also going to do a version of this broccoli casserole. Mine will be minus the velveeta, because I’m just not a big fan, and it will also include mushrooms. Because yum. Mushrooms.
We will also have rolls via my awesome Mother-in-Law. I don’t know what specific recipe she uses, but I’m sure they’ll be fabulous! If you want a good roll recipe for YOUR Easter dinner and your mother-in-law isn’t available, try this one.
My sister-in-law is going to be making some awesome egg bakes for our Easter feast (I can’t wait!!!), but if you need a great one to add to your table, I mixed this up this morning. The kids even liked it. It is a super simple sausage egg bake. I used some fresh shredded potatoes for the hashbrowns, but you can use the frozen or bagged variety if you’d rather.
Here’s Miss Amelia! 10 months old and taking on the world. It is spring break this week, so we have been loving having the boys home. They are spending most of their time running and playing and biking and scootering all week. It has been an amazing week, and makes me really excited for summer.
