Ingredients
  • 1 recipe of the Bisquick pancake batter including the ingredients to make the batter
  • 12 slices center cut bacon
  • lite syrup


Instructions
  1. Cook bacon and set aside.
  2. Mix batter according to the package directions.

  4. I cut the tip bigger.

Breakfast Grilled Cheese



Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound hot breakfast sausage mild or country-style breakfast sausage works fine too
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon Crazy Salt homemade or store-bought
  • 4 ounces Wisconsin colby cheese shredded
  • 4 ounces Wisconsin monterey jack cheese shredded
  • 2 ounces Wisconsin cotija cheese shredded or crumbled
  • 1 loaf sliced sourdough bread
  • large handful arugula or baby spinach


Instructions
  1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook and crumble the sausage over medium high heat. Transfer the cooked sausage to a paper towel lined mixing bowl. Break the eggs into a bowl. Add the water to the eggs and whisk to combine. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter and swirl to coat. Pour the egg mixture into the middle of the pan (you want the butter to move to the edges of the eggs in the pan) and cook without stirring for a minute or two. Sprinkle with crazy salt.
  2. Once the eggs begin to set, gently stir or fold the eggs as needed until the liquid is almost completely gone. Remove from the heat while the eggs are still slightly wet. (They will continue to cook while in the pan.) Add the cooked sausage and stir gently to combine and break up the eggs. Transfer the eggs and sausage mixture to the bowl that was holding the sausage.
  3. Shred the cheeses and mix them together in a bowl. Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel if needed and return to the stove. Butter 1 side of each slice of bread.
  4. Warm the skillet over medium heat. Place the bread buttered side down in the hot skillet. Sprinkle the bread lightly with 1-2 tablespoons of the cheese mix. Scoop about 1/2 cup of the scrambled eggs and sausage onto the bread and use the spatula to break it up a bit to cover the bread. Sprinkle generously with about 1/4 cup of cheese and layer a few pieces of arugula or spinach over the top. Add 1-2 tablespoons more shredded cheese and top with the second slice of buttered bread, buttered side on top facing out.
  5. Cover the pan with a lid (this helps great steam to melt the cheeses) and cook for 3-4 minutes until the cheeses start to melt, if the bread is browning too quickly, reduce the heat slightly. When the cheese begins to melt, and the bread is crisp and golden brown, slide a spatula under the sandwich and flip it over gently. Cover with the lid again to help finish melting the cheese. When the sandwich is golden brown on both sides and melted throughout, transfer to a cutting board and slice in half. Serve immediately. Repeat for each sandwich. Enjoy!

Campfire Donuts



Ingredients
  • cast iron pan
  • vegetable oil
  • biscuit dough (Pillsbury biscuits value pack is what we used.)
  • cinnamon sugar


Instructions
  1. Build a campfire and place a cast iron pan on the grate over the fire.
  2. Fill cast iron pan 1/3 full with vegetable oil. Heat until the oil's surface is shimmery. Test oil temperature with a small piece of dough. If it starts to float and brown then the oil is hot enough. If it sinks and doesn't cook then the oil isn't hot enough yet. If it burns then your oil is too hot and you need to move the cast iron pan away from the direct flame a bit.
  3. Shape each biscuit into a donut shape by poking a hole in the center and forming a ring. Once oil has reached the proper temperature add biscuit dough to the oil. Cook until bottom is browned then flip and cook until opposite side has browned. Once both sides have browned remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to help soak up excess grease.
  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (either in a brown paper bag or just sprinkle over the top of the donut). Serve immediately. Be careful they will be hot!
