2008/01/31 Breakfast:Lightning-fast cinnamon rolls

Or, as Frugaldad dubbed them, cinnabiscuits.

In a pie plate, I melted 3 tbsp butter and mixed it with 1 tbsp brown sugar. I made up some buttermilk biscuit dough but added a couple tablespoons of sugar. I patted the dough into a thin rectangle and spread it with cinnamon-sugar from the shaker that resides on the counter for toast. Roll up the dough, slice it into 10-12 pieces, put in the pie plate, bake for 12-14 minutes at 450. They turned out a touch dry so we put butter on them, but you could also whip up a quick glaze while they bake. (I was packing sack lunches instead of thinking about frosting.)

I think looking for the recipe for the biscuit dough that I didn't use (because I still can't find it!) took longer than actually making these cinnabiscuits!

2008/01/28 Potato crust quiche with sausage

I use a leftover baked potato, grated, mixed with melted butter, to make a crust in a 9-inch pie plate. I prebake the crust at 425 for up to 10 minutes. Then I pour in a mixture of 4 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 pound browned sausage, and 1 cup grated cheese. bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce to 350 and bake until done. It is puffed and brown on top when it is done, about 15 more minutes.
