New Recipe # 1

While we were on our honeymoon we stayed at a Plantation Bed & Breakfast which meant we had a wonderful plantation style breakfast every morning. And believe me when I say these pictures do not do the breakfast justice!

This is our breakfast from the second morning. This was a egg omelet, bacon, makes pear, and hash brown casserole. We also got fruit to start our breakfast out.

This is our breakfast from the first morning. We had fruit, followed by a baked peach, egg casserole, bacon, and the surprisingly hot sausage. (The sausage was coated in brown sugar so you did not realize how hot the sausage really was until you got into it.)

We also had homemade biscuits every morning. And I want a table setting like this one day. When I have my house with the columns!

I also forgot to mention we were brought coffee each morning. The first morning we drank it on the balcony and the second morning we had it in our room.
Anyways, Moving on to the recipe.
Well I tried a new recipe. It was not for the main course but it was still good. I got this recipe from Peggy who made our breakfast each morning at Rosswood Plantation.
Hashbrown Casserole
1 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups sour cream
1 10 3/4 oz can cream of chicken soup
1 32oz hash brown potatoes (this is what makes the casserole)
These are the hashbrowns you have to get. I think it comes in a 28 oz bag but it is close enough. It has onions and peppers mixed in with it.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In pan melt butter. Add everything else except potatoes and half of the cheese. Heat to boiling. (When I made the recipe I had to defrost the frozen potatoes because they were all stuck together.) Remove mix from heat and add potatoes. Pour into baking dish and cover with cheese. Bake for 1 hour. (check potatoes for doneness)
We liked this one so much we have made it twice in the last few weeks.
