Breakfast Taco Casserole Recipe
After having an AMAZING Mexican Omelette at a diner recently, I needed to find a way to recreate those flavors at home. Using left over taco meat and a few items I had on hand, I think I nailed the taste and textures SPOT ON. My family loved this easy to whip up combination of taco meat, hash browns and eggs!
📌 Pin HERE for later!
Grease a 7 x 11 or similar casserole dish and preheat your oven to 350 Degrees.
Clean and chop 1 green pepper and about 1/4 of a large sweet onion.
Fry your hashbrowns with just a bit of butter (about ten minutes) Do not worry about getting them browned, you just want to soften them. Once done, press them in the bottom of your casserole dish.
Throw your leftover taco meat with the onion and green pepper in the frying pan and fry for about five minutes. Just enough to heat up the meat and soften up your onions and green peppers. Now spread this in your casserole dish over your hashbrowns.
Spread a layer of salsa (add as much as you like!) over the hamburger mixture
In a mixing bowl beat eggs, milk, & a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Once beaten well, pour over your layers in the casserole dish. I took a fork and poked it down around the casserole and pulled the edges away a bit so the egg soaked down. (Do not worry if your salsa is floating up a bit, it probably will)
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the egg is set and firm in the middle, then remove put shredded cheese over the top, and let sit for 10 minutes.
Enjoy with some more salsa on top and a big dollop of sour cream! YUMMY!
Update: Thursday, 10/26… I got it…. I actually like it! Green Apple and Berry flavor, Not to sweet or to sour!
Wednesday, October 25th
Yup, it is that time of year! Time for Starbucks ever so popular Halloween themed Frapp! Rumor has it, this years drink on their “secret menu” from October 26th to October 31st will be the Zombie Frappuccino.
Starbucks has not “officially” announced this new spooky drink, but I expect they will be anytime now!
The secret mixture is rumored to consist of a Green Caramel Apple flavored powder, a pink powder (most likely sour?), pink “brains” whipped cream, and a pink mocha drizzle.
Chances are this will be as popular as the “Unicorn” drink we saw this Summer, so ingredients for this drink may run out fast! Of course call your local store to confirm they have this drink starting Thursday, October 26th before you head out to give it a try!
Today at about 10am my son came in my office by me and said he had to go to McDonalds 30 minutes away to get a limited addition Szechuan Sauce at 2pm.
Now first let me explain, my son is not a big fan of McDonalds, and if he does eat there, it is only when they bring back their McRib once a year, so I was very puzzled by him saying this which I am sure he could tell by the look I gave him followed by “The what sauce?” He then goes into this big explanation about a sauce McDonald’s had back when the Disney Mulan Movie was released in 1998. (mind you he would have been FIVE YEARS OLD, so now I am even more confused) He goes on to explain and starts talking about someone named “Rick & Morty.” At this point I am looking into the other room to see where exactly my husband is because I am thinking our son has completely lost his mind.
Oh… Did I mention, Yup, you guessed it… He is a Millennial.
So let me explain to you what I finally found out, after his father “translating” it to me.
There is a popular adult cartoon show on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim called “Rick & Morty” which is about a mad scientist named Rick who takes his Grandson Morty on crazy adventures around the Universe. In the recent Season 3 premiere of the show, it is all about finding the elusive “Szechuan Sauce.” which prompted a petition to be circulated after a tweet that over 44,000 fans signed asking McDonalds to bring back this sauce so they could try it. Which brings us to today…..
McDonalds responded with buttermilkcrispytenders.com. The sauce would return to select stores in limited amounts, at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 7th. And as you can see on their website, it would be VERY LIMITED, they put….. “And when we say limited, we mean really, really limited!”
Lucky me, a store 30 minutes away was going to have this and my husband and son both wanted to go (note sarcasm). Now, I did not have to go, but I had some places to stop at in this city anyways, so I might as well go along instead of making a special trip next week.
12:30pm, We head out of town, get to the McDonalds at about 1 p.m. and the parking lot is PACKED! Yup, I will just wait in the car!
5 minutes later my cell phone is ringing which is followed by “Mom, they do not have any sauce, just posters but we are going to wait!” I think to myself “That is odd, I even looked at the website and it said they would have it, how do they not have any?” After then going to McDonalds facebook page and twitter to double check what was going on, come to find out myself and many others nationwide did not read the fine print which read “Each McDonald’s in the location finder will give away limited-edition posters and stickers, while supplies last; only the McDonald’s locations labeled “Szechuan Available” will be giving away Szechuan Sauce, while supplies last”
Needless to say, A LOT of upset customers, some who had been waiting hours and hours to get this “Amazing Sauce.”
A half hour later my son and husband return to the car, neither have a poster (it is being reported on facebook and twitter most locations only got 10 posters) But they did each buy a 4 pack of the buttermilk crispy tenders which were rather tasty, along with a sticker (photo below) and a coupon for a free 4 piece tenders.
They were both a little disappointed, but after some further investigating, I am seeing at many locations that were actually suppose to have sauce none was available, and for locations that did have the sauce, they were only shipped 20 of them. 10? Really? Most stores had 100 plus eager patrons standing in line.
Right now Social media is a buzz with “McDonalds Fail” and their marketing planning, But the more and more I think about it…. Was it a fail on their part? Talk of their “Szechuan Sauce” is going on all over including many top newspapers writing articles about it. Hashtag #szechuansauce is buzzing right now, and many of us in the U.S. who had no idea what this sauce was all about, now are hearing about it, and even I want to try it after seeing the demand for it!
Isn’t the saying “Even bad publicity is good publicity.”
So I wonder… in a few months, to “make up” for todays fail, Will McDonalds do a nationwide release of this sauce? I guess only time will tell, but I could definitely see this being one of the best marketing campaigns of all time!
My challenge was to make “Ice Cream Cone Treats” for a bake sale. I wanted to do the cupcake ones in the cones, but they tend to get soggy. Plus, I would have had to make them the night before, so it would have been worse. Instead, we did a spin on them with things I had in the cupboard! After making these with my son and seeing how much fun we had, I think it would be a GREAT idea to make at a birthday or slumber party. 📌 Pin it HERE for use later!
No Melt ‘Ice Cream’ Cones
Here is our final product. Simple to do and they taste OH SO YUMMY!
This fun little project was written by a dear friend and Midwest Coupon Clippers follower Brooke. A huge thanks to her and cute little Tucker for their continued help thru the years.

I promise, you will be the talk of the party at any get together when you take these along with a container of cheese spread! They are SO SIMPLE but always a HUGE HIT. My mom started making these a long time ago and now they are a MUST HAVE at every holiday. If you think they will taste like a bread stick…. THINK AGAIN… Nothing even close!

Are you ready? You truly are not going to believe how SIMPLE these are!
It is VERY TEMPTING to try one right away…. but wait… if you try them right away without letting them sit for a few hours, they will taste more like a bread stick. Once they cool, you will have a yummy, gorgeous, glossy, soft pretzel that tastes just as good as they look! Do not forget to put some cheese spread on before you eat!
