North Mississippi Breakfast Casserole

I have believed that our taste buds need waking up early in the morning just like the rest of our body. Stretch, breather, and eat spicy sausage - spicier the better in my book.


1 pound Spicy breakfast sausage

3/4 cup Diced onion

1/4 cup Sliced green bell pepper

1/4 cup Sliced red bell pepper

1 tsp Garlic

1 tsp Creole Seasoning (click here for recipe)

1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper

10 Eggs, beaten

1 cup Half-and-half

1 tsp Dry mustard

1 recipe Mississippi Biscuits, crumbled by hand (click here for recipe)

2 cups Shredded Edam cheese

1 tsp Hot sauce



Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Brown the sausage in a large skillet and drain most of the fat. Add the vegetables and Creole seasoning and cook for 5 minutes. Set aside.

In.a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Fold the sausage mixture into the eggs. Mix well and place in a buttered two-quart baking dish.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Allow to rest for 15 minuted before serving.

Yield: 6 – 8 servings

Sweet Potato Pancakes

I ate my first sweet potato pancake during my only visit to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. My family, along with another couple and their young children rented a cabin in the mountains during spring break. I woke every morning and headed into town for breakfast. I would imagine Gatlinburg has more pancake houses per capita than any place on the planet. My problem is that I never found a good-tasting pancake until I happened across sweet potato pancakes at one of the pancake houses. We serve a version of this recipe at The Midtowner. The Cinnamon Cream Syrup is a must.
