Expert Tips

If you can’t find a 12-ounce package of pork sausage, you can use a 16-ounce package.

Warm corn bread with honey butter and a fruit salad of orange, grapefruit and mango pieces give your brunch a southwestern flair.

Cubed hash brown potatoes are called “southern-style,” and shredded potatoes are called “country-style.” Either one can be used in casseroles like this.
