No big deal, right? WRONG!
It was dinner time Monday night. I was so hungry. I went into the kitchen to throw something together. I have been freezer cooking like mad here lately, but I neglected to thaw just one of my hundred meals.
These hot dog buns were haunting me. I looked all over and I just kept coming back to these buns...and I wasn't wanting a hot dog...even though that would have been much easier!
I searched the fridge and the only thawed meat I had was a pound of Jimmy Dean Sausage.
I spied a green pepper and I was on to something...a breakfast casserole!!!!
So, I tore up 5 buns and put them in a greased pan
I topped with a package of Mozzarella cheese...we are getting somewhere now...
I mixed up 5 eggs, 2 cups of milk, salt, and pepper and poured it over the top...and baked it at 350 for 35 minutes! This is just a variant of a basic breakfast casserole recipe I use...only I use crescent rolls normally. The crescent rolls are better, but hey, what can I say...this was still pretty good!!!
I just thought it would be neat to share a "new use" for those hot dog buns you may otherwise throw away!
How about you?
How do you save and re purpose food?
Please share, I am sure we could all learn some new tricks!!
