Broccoli Rabe, White Beans, Garlic, Sausage, and Fried eggs

4 May

unnamed unnamed1

This was a great leftover meal that turned into one of my favorites.

Now I make all the ingredients just to eat it.

4 cloves of garlic

8 tablespoons of olive oil

One 16 ounce bag of frozen broccoli rabe, defrosted and squeezed dry.

One can of drained small white kidney beans

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

One pound of crumbled sausage

Two fried eggs for every serving

Dash of hot sauce

Heat the oil

Add the garlic and cook till slightly brown

Add the broccoli rabe, salt and pepper.

Cook for about five minutes.

Add the beans and cook till all the liquid is almost evaporated.

Take off the heat and adjust your salt.

In another pan crumble the sausage and cook till brown and well done.

Drain on a paper towel.

In the same frying pan fry two eggs. I like mine flipped over to really cook the whites.

Place four heaping tablespoons  of the bean and broccoli mixture in a bowl

Add three to four tablespoons of crumbled sausage

Top with the two fried eggs

Drizzle some hot sauce if you like.

I felt so healthy after I ate this.

I rewarded myself with peanut M&Ms.



Anytime Breakfast Sandwich

15 Oct

Anytime Egg Sandwich

Every time I pass a Burger King I check my watch to see if it is still breakfast time.

My husband was addicted to fast food and he did corrupt me.

I love the croissant sandwich.

It is just as easy to make it at home.

One croissant.

Buy the big ones at B.J.s

Two scrambled eggs

One slice of american cheese

Two slices of ham, bacon or sausage.

Slice the croissant in half

Place the slice of cheese on one side

Scramble the eggs and season with salt and pepper.

Place the hot eggs on the cheese

Cook the bacon, ham or sausage and place that on top of the egg

Top with the other side of the roll and eat.

Too good and not  hard.

Put $2.99 in your bank and save it for when you don’t have time to cook.

Baked Gnocchi

Baked gnocchi

Easy, Simple, Delicious.

One large chopped onion

Two cloves chopped garlic

Five tablespoons olive oil

One 28 ounce can of whole tomatoes

One 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes

One small can of tomato paste

One tomato paste can of water

1/2 teaspoon oregano

8 basil leaves

2 teaspoons sugar

One pound of ground beef

One pound of sausage, out of the casing

One pound of mozzarella cheese, cut into cubes

1/2 pound of muenster cheese ,cut into cubes

Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top

Two pounds of cheese gnocchi

Soften the onion and garlic in the olive oil.

Add  all the tomatoes and bring to a boil then add the paste and water.

Smash up the whole tomatoes with the back of your spoon.

Add the basil, oregano and sugar.

Let simmer.

Take out about three cups of sauce  to use if someone wants extra sauce.

Bring a big pot of water with a small handful of salt to a boil.

Add the gnocchi and stir so they don’t stick to the bottom.

When the gnocchi rise to the top use a slotted spoon and put them into the sauce.

When all the gnocchi is in the tomato sauce, take the pot off the heat.

Brown the beef and sausage and drain all the fat off.

Add the cooked meat to the tomato and gnocchi pot.

Add the mozzarella and muenster cheese and mix in well.

Pour everything into a casserole dish.

Add the parmesan cheese on top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until everything is nice and hot.

This serves about eight good eaters.

Since I don’t always have 8 for supper I separate this into individual casserole dishes or aluminum foil pans and freeze them for a quick meal.

Its like making your own TV dinner.

This tastes just as good without the meat.

I have also made this with bottled sauce and doctored it up.

Not bad and it is faster.
