Oven Roast 

This Easy to Cook Recipe is as follows; 

3-4 lb.  Roast 

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup 

1 pkg. Dried Onion Soup 

3-4 Potatoes, quartered 

2 Carrots, sliced 

Place the roast in foil and spread the fried onion soup on top. Pour cream of mushroom soup over. Add the 1/4 potatoes and carrots. (if you desire any other vegetable go ahead and add if you like). Seal the foil very well and bake in the oven for 2 & 1/2 hours at 325 degrees. 

The roast will make its own juices! 

If you don’t like the onion soup mix the add salt & pepper in its place. 

Remember when you cook that you can always add seasoning, but you can never take it out! 

This is a simple easy recipe!


1 lb of sausage 

2 strips of Bacon 

12 eggs 

Hash browns or tater tots or bread 

1 log of butter cut in half 

Shredded cheese 

Cook sausage, bacon and a 1/4 of the butter in a skillet until done, drain the excess grease and let it cool to room temperature. Put all the eggs in a bowl and whip good. 

Coat the casserole dish with butter, line with hash browns or whatever you want, pour the sausage mixture (room temp) on top with cheese. Put all the eggs evenly on top. Wiggle it so the mixture goes down the holes. Best if made the day before so it can sit overnight! 

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes (depending on the depth of the casserole dish)

May have to cook a little longer!
