My Thoughts For Today:

Weber Grill

Pork Steaks

I feel I am a little late in getting the grill out and cooking great-tasting meats but I had a craving to make the time. I wanted to cook pork steaks. To me, the taste of charcoal-grilled pork steak is very nostalgic. I have great memories of my family cooking pork steaks. It was a great summertime for the family. The cookout would usually include canned pork and beans, BBQ chips, potato salad along green beans.

I have mentioned in previous posts I love using Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and I use that seasoning on my steaks and black pepper as well. The taste is terrific and I would suggest you try it. You will want to lightly sprinkle the creole seasoning as it can be very salty. The combination is wonderful.

As always, Keep on cooking!

Tennessee Pride Hash Brown Casserole Easy Recipe

Tennessee Pride Hash Brown Casserole Easy Recipe - (Main Dishes, Pork) Casserole

Ingredients:

2 pounds Tennessee Pride Sausage
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup sour cream
1 (8 ounces) container French Onion Dip
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup each of Red & Green Peppers
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 (30-ounce) Package of Frozen hash brown shredded potatoes thawed.

In a skillet cook sausage until browned. Drain well. Combine the cheese, chicken soup, and sour cream in a large mixing bowl. French Onion dip, chopped onion Bell peppers, salt & pepper. Fold in thawed hash browns. Mix well. Spread 1/2 of the mixture over the bottom of a 9x13-greased baking dish. Spread 1/2 of the browned sausage over hash browns. Repeat layering the second 1/2 of the hash brown mixture. Wait to add the rest of the sausage to the top until the last 10 minutes of cooking time. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. Spread the remaining sausage on top and bake for 10 minutes more. The casserole should be golden brown.

My Thoughts On Tennessee Pride Hash Brown Casserole:

In 1994 I moved to West Tennessee in the County of Dyer Tennessee. It is a beautiful part of the country. I was used to living in Southwest Missouri where we enjoy the Ozark Mountains and hills. West Tennessee is much different. In Missouri, there are plenty of cattle and hay fields. In West Tennessee, I found lots of land without a fence. It was adorned with cotton and soybean. More flat than hills, the cotton glowed with white buds at harvest time of the year. Such a beautiful place. The people there are even more friendly than I was accustomed to in my part of Missouri where everyone waves and says "Howdy!" upon greeting. Tennessee food is exciting. I experienced red-eye gravy and coleslaw on my barbeque sandwiches in Tennessee. Of course, there is Tennessee Pride Casserole. When you try this recipe you will be filled with pride as you receive compliments on its taste. Make plans to share this experience with your friends and family. They will thank you kindly for it!

Extra Information For You:

Hash browns are the best! I enjoy eating my hash browns with ketchup! I put salt and pepper on my hash browns as well. I like to eat hash browns for breakfast and dinner. Not in the same day of course. The hash brown was originally called "hashed brown potatoes" and the dish has a very interesting history. Maria Parloa shared the recipe in 1887. Even though this recipe is titled "Tennessee Pride" it is said that hash browns were first originated in Minnesota. You can read more about the history of hash browns by visiting the Tennesee State Library And Archives.

A Question Or Two I Must Ask You:

Would you please share a memory you have of hash browns? Maybe you remember your parents, relative, or friend cooking hash browns for you? I would love to hear your story. Let me know in this post. Also, I am wondering if you missed my last recipe? It is called Texas Hash Easy Recipe. It is not Tennessee hash browns but it is Texas Hash! This recipe has pork in it as you have read but hash browns alone are great!

My Personal Thoughts For Today:

I usually post or try to post more than once every week but I have been extremely busy this past week with life. I am sure you can relate. I work full-time as you might know, and I am in the middle of several projects. While working on my wood pellet stove installation, I am doing it for myself, and I am also spending time with my youngest daughter. No doubt homesteading is in my mind or at least the subject of homesteading. I would at least like to be more efficient in my living as far as saving money on heating my home.

Recently, I went through some of my quarters and found a Homestead quarter.

Homestead Quarter - Front Side - 2015

I have a one-gallon glass jug in which I keep my change in and I was pleasantly surprised to find this homestead quarter. Honestly, I didn't even know this type of quarter existed. I am not proud to admit that. I should stay more informed on things like this. Am I being too hard on myself? I'm not for sure. I assume most people already know about this quarter. I looked up the price on these quarters and they are worth more than their minted value. Collectors will pay a good amount for these and apparently, there are quarters with a mistake that are valued in the thousands of dollars.

Homestead Quarter - Back Side - 2015

Do you have any Homestead quarters? If you do, you might find it interesting to find the value of your quarters. If you are lucky, you might have one that is very valuable to a collector and if you wanted to sell it, you might have enough money to start your very own homestead.

You can learn more about the Homestead National Monument of America Quarter by visiting the United States Mint website.

I would like to finish up this post by sharing I am excited to know my oldest daughter and her family are moving back to my area. I am excited to see them and that means I will get to see my two granddaughters. I enjoy getting to see them when I can. They are so cute and remind me of when my own daughters were little. I still consider myself to be somewhat young but I am a fairly new grandparent. I am 50 years old so in reality, that is not too young. I try to stay young at heart and my grandchildren make me feel that way. What a joy!

Thanks for reading this recipe post!
