 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled Minnie Pearl Cooks (Minnie Pearl, Nicholstone Bookbindery, 1970).

Minnie Pearl was a country comedienne who was famous for her appearances at the Grand Ole Opry and on the TV show Hee Haw. Minnie's actual name was Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon.

Her cook book is chuck-full of good county cookin' recipes which includes a nice variety of breakfast dishes.

From the preface of Minnie Pearl Cooks: "Howdeeee! Food has always represented fun to me. There were five daughters in our family and we enjoyed all of our meals together - no TV trays in those days! And mealtime was fun."

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

Heat one can of cream of mushroom soup and add 1 cup of sour cream. This sauce is very good when served on the souffle.
