Breakfast Pies
Made breakfast for dinner tonight and decided to make these as well. All I had in the fridge was the home style grands. This can only had 8 biscuits. I used only 4 of them and cut them in half (some were successful into thirds). I sautéed the onions and peppers using some bacon drippings. Also used bacon instead of sausage ( again used what I had on hand.) I used 3 eggs, though I think next time I will use 4. The 4 grands filled 12 muffin holes. My boys (4 & 10) ate them. They liked the portable breakfast. I froze the rest, gonna try it out tmrw morn to see how well it reheats/tastes. Bottom line, if u use grands, cut it in half or thirds, so they won't rise up too much. These were great ! EDIT: Tried these today and nuked them for about 30 sec from frzn. Great easy brkfst! The crusts become softer if you microwave them. I also reheated one in the toaster oven, and that one became crunchier.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops
Made this last night. After reading tons of reviews, I decided to omit the oil altogether. I doubled the sauce, and used 3 large bone in chops for our family. Marinated the chops with 1/2 the sauce for about 1.5 hrs. Baked the chops in foil lined casserole dishes. Clean up was a breeze! Sauce thickened a bit in the oven. Entire family devoured this! Keeper! Will try on chicken next.

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake
This was fantastic. I used chicken Italian style sausage. I also added a quarter of a head of cabbage (had to use it up before it went bad) with the rest of the veggies. Used only chicken broth instead of white wine. Used it to deglaze the pan and poured it all into the baking dish. Both my 9 yr old and 3 yr old gobbled it up.
