We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
For those who believe that the three basic food groups are beer, chips and dip: A real cowboy breakfast from B&G Cowboy Chef Chuck Green. Here's his recipe for 24 servings of this delicious and supremely healthful breakfast - or lunch, or night-time snack. (Thanks, reader)
We have written about that disgusting Hot Dog Gravy they like to make in eastern Kentucky. This recipe is a better idea.
Golly good gracious what a wonderful recipe for B & G.
Next to pies they are my favorite. I would make one change and that is the Jimmy Dean sausage ....get the HOT kind as it adds a bit more zip to the without resorting to Tobasco which tends to overwhelm.
You know, both my husband and I have a long family history in eastern Kentucky and southwest Virginia. He was born in Virginia and grew up in East kentucky. I went to Berea college. My mom was born in Eastern Kentucky and lived there for awhile and we all have relatives still there. We have never heard of, spoken about or even seen, yet alone, attempted to eat "hot dog gravy," which I agree, sounds truly disgusting. NOt sure how you ran across it, but I am sorry you missed out on the better foods that day. As you know, the dining can be good there and the recipes a mainstay for years to come. PS - I love your food items in the blog. I have made several of the recipes and they go over extremely well with the whole family.
