Sausage Bombs

We love breakfast foods. I’m always pinning new recipes to try. My original plan on the morning I made these was to make a biscuit and gravy casserole. When I realized I was missing one of the ingredients I needed to make that recipe, I made this recipe with some of the ingredients instead. Jeremiah has already asked me to make these delicious filling breakfast treats once again.

Sausage Egg & Cheese Stuffed Breakfast Biscuits by So Fab Food
IMG_06401 package of Grands biscuits
6 eggs
8 sausage patties
8 slices of cheese

Make scrambled eggs and season with salt and pepper. Cook sausages according to packaging. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Flatten biscuits to about 5-6 inches wide. Break cheese slices into four pieces. Stack on top of biscuit. Top with scoop of scrambled eggs. Place sausage patty on top. Pull biscuit from opposite directions to cover entirely. Place wrapped side down on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Brush with butter and top with favorite seasonings. Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning pan halfway through baking. Let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Notes:

  • I added a little milk to my eggs to make them fluffier. I’d also suggest maybe 5 eggs would be enough.
  • I used turkey sausage and Cheddar cheese.
  • I topped mine with fennel seed to bring out the flavor of the sausage.

Crockpot Creamy Chicken Taco Soup

I hope you haven’t thrown your Crockpot away after watching the This Is Us episode where Jack died. This soup recipe is too delicious not to make. Jeremiah and I cooked it during a recent icy storm that caused us to work from home.

Crockpot Creamy Chicken Taco Soup by Eating on a Dime
IMG_06192 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can of black beans
1 c. frozen corn
½ onion chopped
1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (8 oz.)
2 c. chicken broth
2 T. taco seasoning
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 package of cream cheese

Toss everything except cream cheese in Crockpot. Cook on low for 5-7 hours. Remove chicken and shred with forks. Add back in chicken and cream cheese. Cook for an additional 30-60 minutes. Top with shredded cheese, green onion, sour cream, pico, or crushed tortilla chips.

Notes:

  • I used frozen chicken breasts and cooked for the full time.
  • I used reduced sodium chicken broth, reduced sodium black beans, and 1/3 less fat cream cheese.
  • I also used a local brand of taco seasoning – Spanish Gardens. It has only ingredients you can read – no weird things like those packages in you find in your new pair of shoes.
  • I added a salsa, a little queso and shredded cheese to my bowl. I ate mine with Xochitl tortilla chips. Jeremiah added fresh pico, fresh cilantro, and shredded cheese.

Crack Chicken Noodle Soup

Although Spring is just around the corner, a few weeks ago we were reminded winter wasn’t over. That promoted Jeremiah and I to cook up a few new soup recipes. I call this recipe the soup version of Canyon Chicken.

Crack Chicken Noodle Soup by Plain Chicken
Chicken soup3 c. chopped chicken
1 can condensed cheese soup
6 c. chicken broth
1 c. milk
2 carrots, thinly sliced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 package ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix
1 package Bacon Bits
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz. dried fine egg noodles, uncooked

In a large stock pot, combine chicken, cheese soup, broth, milk, celery, carrots, ranch packet, and bacon. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. Then, reduce to a simmer for 20-25 minutes, until vegetable is soft. Stir in noodles and shredded cheese. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until noodles are soft.

Notes:

  • I would suggest using leftover rotisserie chicken since this recipe doesn’t have any seasonings except ranch. I added a little parsley.
  • I used low sodium condensed soup, low sodium broth and skim milk.
  • I didn’t have celery so I omitted it from the recipe.
  • I used real bacon. I suggest maybe just sprinkling on top before serving so ensure the flavor isn’t overwhelmed.
