Put some morning romance in your Valentine's Day

Let's just be honest..........
We aren't all married to a romantic and eating out and/or sending flowers is expensive. Valentines Day for many women has become a bit predictable and can sometimes be downright disappointing. You know he'll forget, so you drop little hints, or maybe he does remember, on his way home from work he'll pick up the last card left on the shelf and if you're lucky, some flowers from the grocery store. So rather than spend money on flowers that will wilt in a few days guys, why not surprise your special someone with breakfast in bed? Why is breakfast in bed usually reserved for Mother's Day? While very cute to be served cold soggy cereal and burnt toast by your adorable children once a year, I've got a really simple recipe that will bring a little magic and some unpredictable and thoughtful romance back to this over commercialized holiday.

This year Valentines Day is on Saturday. Your special someone will be anticipating dinner, some candy and possibly flowers. But you can count on the fact that at minimum, a card is necessary. The less you spend on a gift, the sappier the card must be. So, this year guys, deliver the card with breakfast. Prepare the recipe Friday night, after she has gone to sleep. The recipe is easy to prepare, and you bake it in the morning while she is still sleeping. Deliver it with some fresh OJ, coffee, your card and if you're really trying to score some points, add her favorite flower to a small vase.


6 eggs
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 cup milk
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
l lb. of ground sausage
1/2 tsp. original Mrs. Dash (optional)
3 oz. Monterey jack cheese, grated
2 drops hot sauce (tabasco or Franks red hot)
3 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Pinch seasoning salt
Frozen shredded hash browns

Brown sausage and onion until sausage is cooked and crumbled. Add Mrs. Dash(optional) and seasoning salt. Line the bottom of an 8x8 in. glass baking dish or individual ramekins(fancy word for small round baking dish) with frozen hash browns (about 1 in. thick). Sprinkle hash browns with drained sausage mixture. Mix together eggs, milk, mustard, and hot sauce and pour over meat and hash browns. Top with cheeses. Best refrigerated overnight. Cook at 350 degrees 45 min. to l hour or until golden and egg is completely cooked. The last 4 words of this recipe are critical to it's success. Use a knife to check for doneness. If the egg is jiggly, it isn't done. Serves 4.

I had to giggle because dh and I have never done anything for Valentine's Day. It's a big enough deal when we remember each other's bdays. LOL!

The casserole recipe sounds wonderful, but dh already cooks lunch and dinner, and I feel bad making him cook breakfast too. Are we the wackiest couple or what?
