Making A Yummy Winter Supper

By Patricia

When I was a kid, my family had breakfast for dinner a couple of times a month. I always somehow found it comforting to see my mother at the stove making us sausage, eggs, and french toast.
I did the same thing when my own children were growing up, and they loved it, too. So now I still cook breakfast for dinner once in awhile for my grown children and grandchildren. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to have a cozy dinner together on a cold night.

This is a recipe for a yummy dish called Farmers Casserole. It is easy to fix and is hearty enough to make a filling dinner. You don't have to use sausage, you can also use Canadian Bacon or ham, it's delicious with any kind of meat. And any leftovers heat up to taste great. Delicious!!

  • 3
    cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes

    cup sliced green onions (2)
