1 1/2 tsp salt

3 cups of sugar

the zest of 3 oranges

6 whole eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup orange juice

3 cups cranberries

In a food processor, process the sugar with orange zest for one minute. Poor out the sugar into a bowl. In the same food processor (no need to wash) pulse the cranberries until they are broken down. Poor the cranberries into another bowl. Juice the oranges that you just zested until you get 1/2 cup of juice. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the wet ingredients: canola oil, orange juice, buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs. In another large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, and orange zest sugar, and pulsed cranberries Whisk the dry into the wet until it just comes together. Do not over mix. Batter can be portioned immediately into muffin liners or can be refrigerated up to 5 days. Bake at 350^F for 20 or so minutes, until the center springs back when touched. Optional: top with a basic strussel topping or sugar just before baking.

Eggnog Quick Bread

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup eggnog

2 teaspoons rum flavored extract

1 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup butter, softened

2¼ cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of a 9-x5-inch loaf pan, or three 3-x5-inch loaf pans. Blend together eggs, eggnog, rum extract, sugar, vanilla and butter. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Add to eggnog mixture; stir just enough to moisten; pour into prepared pan(s). Bake large loaf 40 to 60 minutes, or until a tester inserted in center comes out clean; small loaves 30 to 35 minutes – test with toothpick. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or foil, and store in refrigerator. To serve: warm up bread; sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. (bev; allrecipes.com) I made both sizes, and found that the small loaves needed a bit more time, but test them with a toothpick at the recommended time. The small ones came out of the pans easily, but the large ones were difficult to remove and part of the bottom remained on the pan bottom, tearing a chunk out of the loaf. But they were very good anyway. If they tear apart, you could cube them and use as the base for a trifle.

1 pound ground pork sausage

12 eggs

1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup

1¼ cups milk

½ pound sliced fresh mushrooms, sautéed

2 pounds frozen potato rounds (crispy crowns, like taco John’s uses for their potatoes olé)

½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-x13-inch baking dish. Cook sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain; set aside. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, cream of mushroom soup and milk. Stir in sausage and mushrooms; pour into baking dish. Stir in frozen potato rounds. Bake 45 to 50 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. (schules; allrecipes.com) I added about a cup of pepper Jack cheese to the casserole before baking; and sprinkled the top with another ½ cup (probably a little more), during the last few minutes of baking time.

1½ cups flour

2 ¼ ounces instant yeast

¼ cup + 2 tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon salt

2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons milk

4 tablespoons butter, melted

4 large eggs, divided

12 ounces SPAM with bacon, minced and sautéed, divided

¼ cup sugar

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup sugar free maple syrup

Do not heat oven – muffins start baking in cold oven. Place paper liners in muffin cups (I recommend spraying pan rather than using the liners – muffins were impossible to get out of them). In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, 2 tablespoons sugar, salt, 2/3 cup milk, butter and 1 egg, mixing well until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Add 8 ounces minced spam to batter, mixing well. Place a scant 2 tablespoons batter into each muffin cup. In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon, mixing fully; sprinkle about ½ teaspoon over each muffin. In a new bowl, whisk together remaining eggs and milk; add remaining spam. Add a scant 2 tablespoons egg mixture over each muffin. Drizzle with syrup before placing in cold oven; set oven to 350 degrees. Once oven heats to 350, continue to bake 15 minutes or until egg mixture sets (test with toothpick). Let cool in pan 5 minutes; serve warm. 24 muffins
