Quick and Easy Breakfast Recipe: Breakfast Baked Potatoes

Here is a new spin on breakfast that's wonderfully simple.  You can leave the potatoes to cook as you get dressed for the day, while the eggs and sausage fry up quickly once it's about time to eat.  To save even more time in the morning, you can have all the ingredients pre-cooked the night before, and then just reheat everything the morning.








Breakfast Baked Potatoes


Ingredients:

4 large potatoes
4 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 pound ground pork sausage
shredded cheese, sour cream, and minced onion if desired for topping

1.  Scrub potatoes well and prick all over with a fork.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes, or until tender.

2.  Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.  Melt the 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.  Add the eggs and cook as for scrambled eggs.

3.  In another pan, fry the ground pork sausage until cooked through.

4.  To serve, cut each potato open and fill with egg and sausage.  Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and onions.

Why Did My Chicken Lay That Strange Egg? {Decoding 10 Chicken Laying Issues}

What do you got?

A huge egg with two yolks in it?  A wrinkly misshapen egg?  An egg with a soft shell?  Or perhaps the all-inclusive just plain weird looking egg?

Whatever it is, I hope to help clear up some of the mystery behind:

Why Did My Chicken Lay That Strange Egg?

Homemade Drain Cleaner

To avoid clogging and bad odors, sink and tub drains should be periodically cleaned.

A once a month cleaning with a non-toxic, homemade cleaner prevents needing a stronger, usually sodium hydroxide (lye) based, cleaner to remove clogs.  Sodium hydroxide is extremely caustic, and will damage the lungs if inhaled, burn skin and eyes, and can be fatal if swallowed.  In addition, the heat generated by using sodium hydroxide can soften PVC pipes, and damage old, corroded pipes.  It also changes the pH of water and can cause fish kills.

A much nicer alternative to this harsh chemical is the simple combination of baking soda and vinegar, followed with boiling water.  When baking soda and vinegar are combined, they foam and expand, cleaning the sides of your pipes and dissolving fatty acids.  The boiling water then washes it all away.  This method is a great way to use up the box of baking soda in your frig that is not longer doing a good job of deodorizing.

It's Not Weird to Have a Tub of Leftover Soap Scraps {Recyled Soap Scrap Bars Recipe}

Are you looking for ways to save money?  Who isn't nowadays?

Every little thing you do helps and the small things really do add up.  Which is why I have a somewhat creepy tub of soap scraps in my bathroom.






I admit, it seems a little weird to save soap scraps, but it wasn't always this way.  In fact, they used to have little contraptions for saving your soap scraps.





But those days are gone.  Or are they?

I think frugality is making a comeback--at least, it is around here, because I save all our soap scraps.  What do I do with them?


Recycled Soap Scrap Bars

If you are regular users of bar soap, a family of four can easily manage to get six additional bars of soap per year by saving soap scraps.  It doesn't seem like much, so I'll write it this way instead:  in ten years, that would be 60 bars of "free" soap.  There, that seems more impressive.

Ingredients:
Soap scraps
Water
Herbs (optional)

1.  Grate or finely chop soap scraps.  Measure the amount you end up wi…
