The ingredients in this Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Cheese Salad are coated with a simple dressing that’s sweetened with honey. In addition to the broccoli and cauliflower, there’s also some red onion, bacon, sunflower kernels, two cheeses, and some raisins, too, if you want.

Breakfast Sausage Savory Bread Pudding

It started out as a very bready breakfast casserole, but I made some small changes to it over time and I like it even more now. This recipe has more bread in it than the typical breakfast casserole, which is a plus because it nicely absorbs the egg mixture and doesn’t turn out runny or soggy. Another plus is that this recipe is so convenient to make because you can put the ingredients together the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning! Continue reading
