From Appetizers to Breakfast

My breakfast this morning was created using leftover appetizers from yesterday’s BBQ.

A coworker of mine gave me a recipe for an appetizer called buffalo chips, and the leftovers were perfect for including in an egg scramble.

To make the buffalo chips, I cooked a roll of sage sausage, a pound of lean ground beef and half a block of the medium size 2% Velveeta cheese in a skillet, before placing the meat mixture on whole wheat mini toasts and baking it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the buffalo chips (especially the guys), and I used the leftover meat and cheese mixture to create an egg and sausage scramble for breakfast.

After reheating the meat in a skillet and scrambling two eggs, I topped the bowl with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and flanked it with whole wheat toast.

Ryan really enjoyed this breakfast and said the sausage mix reminded him of the sausage meat inside a McDonald’s sausage breakfast burrito (He meant this as a compliment 😉 ).

Percy Jackson

This morning I also finished reading the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I thought it was a very entertaining book and once I got over the fact that it’s written in the perspective of a  12-year-old boy I really enjoyed it. It’s no Harry Potter, but I found it interesting enough to want to read the next book in the series!

I am trying to talk Ryan into seeing the movie today (He’s already finished the first three Percy Jackson books)! It’s playing at a nearby theater where you can see  movies for $2 that are out of the big theaters, but are not available on DVD yet.

Have any of you seen the Percy Jackson movie or read any of the books? What did you think?

I’m off to take Sadie on a walk to the farmer’s market to pick up some goods for the week! I hope they have some yummy samples! 😀

  1. i loved that book ( i reviewed it on my blog in the reviews page)…thought it was great.
    would like to read the rest of the series, but cannot justify the expenditure!

  2. Those buffalo chips sound really good!!

  3. i would love to admit that is the perfect ‘man’ breakfast… not that breakfast should be man or women categorized..BUT it is like the stereotypical meaty dish. you know!

    so creative! and the perfect blend of fat and protein

  4. I really want to see that movie! It looks really good and I’m really into all of that fantasy stuff. 😀 I haven’t read the books yet though and considering how reading hasn’t been a big part of my life lately (sadness) I probably won’t get around to reading them for at least a year.

  5. Great breakfast/dinner combo! I can’t tell you the last time I had Velveeta. Can’t wait to hear about the movie.

  6. Wow that breakfast looks great! Jay happened to be walking by the computer screen when I had it up and he goes, “Woah! What is THAT?!?” 😉

  7. Hi! I read your blog everyday. I’m vegetarian and have been meaning to try a bunch of the veg recipes youve posted here….I actually bought barley last week after seeing it on the blog and mixed it with vanilla chobani and frozen berries last night for a snack and then again this morning for breakfast. I LOVED the combination..SO good. Thanks for the idea!

  8. I have read all the Percy J books and I like them. Not quite as good as Harry Potter but I like the fact you learn some mythology while reading these books where Potter doesn’t provide any learning other than a terrific series.
