Another Buttermilk Syrup Recipe!

Recipe contributed by Rachel

This is very similar to the divine syrup recipe that Sarah posted a few years ago.  This one (which I just got from my mother-in-law) has less buttermilk and the addition of a little Karo syrup.  Try both and decide which one you like best!  (They both taste like candy!)

Buttermilk Syrup

1 stick real butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp Karo syrup
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Bring first four ingredients to a boil in a large pan.  Remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla.  Stir well.  Mixture will expand to twice its size.

Especially delicious with pumpkin waffles!  Double the syrup recipe!

Easy Egg Casserole

Our mom used to make this for New Year's Day breakfast.  It is really yummy and easy.  The original recipe says to make it the night before, but my husband does not like the bread to be too soggy, so I make it the morning of.  Either way, it is delicious.

12 slices of bread (cubed)
1 lb sharp cheddar cheese
3 cups milk
6 eggs
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon dried mustard

In a greased casserole dish, alternate layers of cubed bread, milk mixture, and cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
