Opening day breakfast

Company Breakfast Bake (from an unknown source)

1/2 lb. frozen hash browns
1 pound sausage, cooked and drained (I used a much smaller amount of ham, chopped into small pieces)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1 3/4 cup milk
3/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt (I used just a dash)
Dash of pepper (I used a big dash)

Cover the bottom of a 9-inch square pan with hash browns. Cover with sausage. Sprinkle with cheese. Stir together the remaining ingredients. Pour this over everything. Refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

(I doubled this and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan. I cooked it at 375 degrees (because of the coffee cake's temperature requirement) for 45 minutes.)

Quick Coffee Cake (from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook)

1 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups white flour (can use whole wheat)
2 t. baking powder
4 T. butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 T sugar mixed with 1 1/2 t. cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square cake pan. Mix the sugar, the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Work in the butter with your fingers or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the egg and milk and blend. Spoon into pan. Sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mixture evenly over the top. Bake for 20 minutes.

(My daughter doubled this and put it in a 9 x 13 pan. We baked it for 45 minutes.)
