Mashed Sweet Potatoes
I made this r cite but for 2 servings only. Used maple syrup and only 1 tbsp of butter. Fantastic! My boys (5 & 11) gobbled it up!

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.
