Waynes Moms Bees and Gees

bgMy coworker Wayne declared that he won’t eat any other Biscuits and Gravy other than his Mothers.  I took that as high praise.  I tried it.   It was outstanding.  Recipe below.



1 lb Spicy sausage extra spicy Jimmy Dean
2 tbl minced Garlic
2 or 3 tbl Beef bouillon
Red pepper flakes to taste
Black pepper to taste

Start by cooking the sausage.  Drain off some fat but leave enough to work in the gravy.

Add the garlic and bouillon, add the red pepper flake.

Make a rue (flour/milk) and add that in and cook to a bubble to finish off the gravy.

Serve over Biscuits with cheddar cheese.  Wayne claims his mother makes the Red Lobster cheesy biscuits.  I was not that motivated.  I used canned biscuits and put shredded cheddar on top then topped with the gravy.




This is a blog post just to be relevant.  Nothing to say, but wanted to make sure the WordPress authorities know that my site is active.

Tomato Pudding

caramelizedbreadpudding_thumb8A holiday classic that my wife and her family have introduced into the recipe book.

This is a GREAT side dish.  Many fear it.  But those to try it WILL ask for more.

I love it and ask for it every holiday.

Editorial Note: The original post only included 1/4 C of tomato puree.  I have now corrected to 3/4C.  Apologies for those who crafted a batch of this incorrectly.


  • 2 cups white bread, cubed into small pieces
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup tomato puree, add water to make 1 cup
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Mix all ingredients and place in greased covered baking dish.
  2. Bake 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
  3. Remove from oven (safety first), remove cover, stir
  4. Bake another 15 minutes uncovered.

Thank me later…
