A Recipe and Test Salary

Ok, so yesterday, I mentioned in my WIAW post about a breakfast casserole that many of you said sounded great! So, I went to the source to get a recipe: my sister.

Her recipe is adapted from the one on the Pillsbury website.

Here it is!


Bacon and Potato Breakfast Pizza

  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
  • 1 box (9 oz)  frozen roasted potatoes with garlic & herbs (ours had some pepper chunks in it)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 8 slices precooked bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
  • Salt and pepper, if desired

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray. If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough into pan; press in bottom and 1/2 inch up sides to form crust; press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough into pan; press in bottom and 1/2 inch up sides to form crust. Cut small slit in center of roasted potatoes pouch; microwave on High 2 to 3 minutes or until thawed. Remove potatoes from pouch; cut larger pieces in half. In medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in milk, bacon, 1 cup of the cheese, the thawed potatoes, salt and pepper. Spoon potato mixture evenly over crust. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over top. Bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until set and edges are golden brown and eggs are no longer runny. Cut into squares.

That’s easy enough!

The site’s recipe has you cook the dough a little first, but it isn’t necessary! Also, they have parsley in their recipe; also, not necessary.

Let me know if you try it!

And now, I am off to get paid to take a test.  Yep, that’s right.  I am awesome Winking smile.

Actually, it is a pilot test for the new teacher certification tests that Pennsylvania will be using.  Currently, PA uses the Praxis tests to certify teachers.  The state has now chosen to reorganize their teaching programs, and instead of certifying from K-6 for elementary teachers, it is now from PreK-3 and 4-8 for the grades teachers can teach.  For special education, it will be changing from K-12 to two smaller groups split in the middle grades.

For my class this evening, we are taking the new certification test before it is given to the public.  It is through Pearson Education and is called the PECT test.  I will be taking the special education test as well as a bunch of my peers so that Pearson can rule out and “bad” questions that they won’t use in the actual test. 

And for doing this, I can chose between a 100 dollar Penguin Books gift card, or 50 dollars cash Winking smile.  Yayyy Christmas gifts!

Well, I’m off to get rich.

Have you ever taken a test for money? bahaha

If you are a teacher, how does your state certify teachers?

  1. I had to take the Praxis & it would have been pretty awesome if I got paid to do it!
