What would Christmas be, without at least one good fudge recipe? Here is an easy one to add to your recipe file. No interruptions, no phone calls, as it demands your full attention! The stirring is constant!  Cut in very small squares, it’s a wonderful addition to your Christmas party tray!
And then, after opening the Christmas presents, everyone’s hungry! Our delicious and easy (Isn’t everythingeasy with Bisquick!) Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole is no trouble. Add some croissants or mini muffins from the grocery store and you’re all set!   
Bon Appetit!!

5 Minute Fudge


2 cups granulated sugar

2/3 cup evaporated milk

½ cup butter

12 large marshmallows (fresh, cut into 4th’s)

Pinch of salt

1 cup (6-oz.) semisweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)

1 cup chopped pecans

1 tsp. vanilla


Before you start, line an 8 or 9-inch pan with foil, leave an overhang on 2 sides for “handles” to lift out. Lightly grease foil. Halve the chocolate chips and pecans measured out in measuring cups.


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan. Over medium heat, cook, stirring constantly (I use a large wooden spoon), until mixture comes to a rolling boil.

Boil for 5 minutes (I set my timer), stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add the chocolate chips to the marshmallow mixture, stirring constantly, until the chocolate chips melt. Add pecans and vanilla, stirring well. Spread evenly in the buttered pan. Cool until set. Then lift out and cut into small squares, it’s very rich!!

These would also be good made with peanut butter chips and/or butterscotch chips.

Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

A wonderful breakfast after opening presents. Serve with a big bowl of fresh cut-up fruit.


1 lb. roll Jimmy Dean regular pork sausage

½ cup finely chopped onions

6 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup Bisquick

2 cups whole milk

1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar Cheese (4-oz.)

¼ tsp. oregano

1 tsp. salt

¼ tsp. black pepper

Additional shredded cheese for top (just a little)


Crumble the sausage in a medium size frying pan and brown, along with the chopped onions. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, Bisquick, milk, cheese, and seasonings. Pour into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish and sprinkle a little cheese on top, for looks. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serves 8


Note: If you really want to go “all-out”, add Hot Buttered Grits and Sour Cream Biscuits  (archives: Jan. 2011)
