No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

The annual Egg Turkey Day Proclamation – 2011 Edition

Whereas the turkey is the offical bird of Thanksgiving, and

Whereas turkey is a delicious meat, and

Whereas turkey breast contains more protein and less fat and sodium than chicken breast,

Now therefore I hereby decree that a nameless, pictureless turkey be given a thorough plucking and a complete basting, and warmed to a sufficient temperature for human consumption, and further decree that turkey be thoroughly enjoyed until all of the meat be eaten.

Now, go eat!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody

I have plenty to be thankful for once again. A rather-incomplete list:

- The Triune God.
- My family and friends.
- Shoebox, the guest-bloggers, and you the loyal (and even just occassional) readers.
- My health.
- Enough money to get by.
- The incoming and returning conservative Republicans, both on the state and federal levels.
- The greatest military in the world today.
- A more-or-less reliable web host and ISPs (yes, there’s more than one).
- Everybody who I at least try to keep up with.

As the title says, Happy Thanksgiving.

Egg’s Soon-to-be World Famous Sausage and Wild Rice Stuffing recipe

Filed under Miscellaneous.

This little “side” dish is always, and I mean ALWAYS, the first thing gone at the Egg Thanksgiving dinner (even though my dad won’t eat it because of the mushrooms and onions). I haven’t made this myself in a while, but since my younger sister won’t have time to make it this year, it’s falling back to me. Let’s start with the all-important ingredients list:

  • 2 boxes Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Rice
  • 1 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 12. oz mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 small onion (an equivalent amount of green onion should also work)
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 2 eggs

What to do with all this:

  • Chop mushrooms, celery and onion (finely), and crush garlic. Sautee until onions become translucent and the celery becomes at least somewhat soft.
  • Make rice according to package directions.
  • Fry up sausage until cooked, keeping the meat separated.
  • Combine cooked vegetables, rice and sausage, and add remaining seasonings.
  • After it is cool, add beaten eggs (if you add them while the mixture is warm, you’ll start cooking the eggs prematurely).
  • Bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes.

Bon appetit!

Revisions/extensions (9:14 pm 11/24/2010) - In case you were wondering what two of those look like (click for the full-sized pic)…

That was taken before I mixed the right casserole dish. In case you’re wondering just how much is in each, there’s 5 cups of rice, 2 cups of meat, and 2 cups of vegetables.

Also, I “clarified” a couple of steps.

More blessing counting

Shoebox already listed what he is thankful for, but I do need to add my own list since the cook in my family (my older sister) is spending the day with her husband’s family (don’t worry; my overstuffing commences Sunday):

  • The Triune God – God the Father who created everything and who is the source of all blessings; God the Son, Jesus Christ, who did what I could not, atone for my sins so I could have a relationship with God; and God the Holy Spirit, who created faith in me.
  • My family, who I wouldn’t trade for any other family.
  • My friends (yes, I do have some), there through thick and thin.
  • Shoebox and the guest-bloggers, who have carried this place
  • Our readers, without whom this would be an echo chamber (chamber, chamber, chamber, just kidding).

It won’t be morning by the time I’m done rolling through the more-stuffed-than-a-turduckhen feed reader, but it’s time for a return of the Scramble so I can thank those friends.  No, I don’t have a song for today; instead, I bring you Tom McMahon’s bracket to introduce a reverse-order Scramble Special:

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. I do believe that this should answer the question that I asked late last week; Texacution for the turkey instead of a pardon.
