Sherrel Jones wrote extensively today about local jams and jellies, which evokes visions of breakfast.

With school back in session, a good breakfast is important to ensure that the education we offer our children isn't lost because we didn't provide them with enough fuel.

The Made in Oklahoma Coalition offers some ideas for a hearty and delicious breakfast to start your day right and send your student off to school ready to learn.

Pizza puts kids under a spell, and this Oklahoma Breakfast Pizza will be magic to its maker thanks to the simplicity of the recipe as will the easy-to-make Sausage and Cheese Scones with Pepper Jelly.

Oklahoma Breakfast Pizza

1 package Shawnee Mills pizza crust mix

8 Country Cousin Pork Sausage Patties

1 teaspoon Head Country All-Purpose Championship seasoning

1 cup diced bell pepper

1 cup frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed

4 eggs

1/4 cup Braum's milk

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

4 slices Bar-S bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Make pizza crust according to package directions. Press dough into pizza pan, and set aside. Heat cooked sausage patties according to package directions. Crumble and set aside.

In a large saute pan, add sausage, bell peppers and seasoning. Cook over medium heat, stirring until peppers are tender. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with milk.

Spread sausage and bell peppers over pizza crust. Top with thawed potatoes. Sprinkle with cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Carefully pour egg mixture over the sausage and cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with cooked and crumbled bacon.

Sausage and Cheese Scones with Pepper Jelly

1 package of Shawnee Mills biscuits mix

1 cup of cooked JC Potter maple sausage

1/2 cup of grated cheese — cheddar, Monterey Jack or a mixture of both

Small amount of flour for forming dough

1 jar of Suan's Pepper Jelly or Lemon Mango Pepper Jelly

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Follow the directions on the biscuit mix to make scone dough. Add cooked sausage and cheese to the dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and with floured fingers, pat or shape dough into a large circle.

Cut dough into six to eight equal pieces, like slices of a pie. Place cut pieces of dough onto a baking sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy the scones hot or at room temperature with pepper jelly or lemon mango pepper jelly.
