This is a delicious, light and airy bread. The pecans give flavor, but because they are chopped so fine, you don't realize they're there. My son has a tendency to prefer the airy store bought bread, but he loves this one.
These are mouthwatering. Make plenty for a weekend breakfast. It's worth the effort! They freeze well, too, and can be heated in the oven at 350 for about 12 - 14 minutes, or in the microwave for a few seconds if thawed (about 1 1/2 minutes if frozen). Very convenient for a grab and go breakfast.
Best with fresh vegetables from the garden or farmers market. Tip: do not overchop ingredients; onion and tomatoes should not be mushy. We use pico de gallo as a relish, dip, topping for baked potatoes, Mexican food or fish, or mix it with pinto beans, black-eyed peas or rice.
This recipe was one of our family favorites when I was a kid. My mom clipped it from a magazine in the early 60's. I reduced the salt and the fat significantly - they used way too much then, in my opinion. Enjoyed in the Midwestern U.S. region at many church potlucks. (I attended quite a few personally!)
This is very popular in our house. The kids love the strips they can eat with their fingers and dip into the gravy. They prefer to have french fries with this so they can dip them in the gravy, too. Most definitely a Texas (or Oklahoma) recipe - Southwestern U.S.
NOTE: Although this isn't a low fat recipe, it doesn't contain anywhere near the amount indicated in the nutrition facts which include all the oil. If the oil is hot enough when you add the steak strips, it will absorb very little oil. Also, you can drain the cooked steak strips on paper towels to absorb more fat.
This is so easy and quick, but the salmon is perfectly cooked and seasoned. With a bag salad and French bread, a great home cooked dinner is on the table in minutes. A great recipe with fresh salmon from the great West U.S. region.
