Our Favorite Skoolie Recipes vary from time to time.
We want to share some of our favorite skoolie recipes We love to eat. Especially Don. Don is definitely the foodie of the two of us.
For some people, food is not just nourishment, It’s much more than that for some people. Like an old song or smell, some foods have an instant nostalgic trigger to a time or a place.

Here are a few of our favorite skoolie recipes that are super easy to make.
Admittedly, this is one of Don’s favorite skoolie recipes more so than Nat's. In fact, Nat doesn’t like this one at all, but that is because she is not a big fan of sausage.
This is a meal Don’s momma used to make for him when he was just a wee little lad. Now, when his mom made this, she used Pork n Beans. Don has changed it up slightly to baked beans but feels like it is an upgrade.
Here is the recipe.
- Jimmy Dean sausage 1 pound
- 1 can of Country Style Baked Beans
- 1 Tablespoon of ground pepper
- ½ Tablespoon of Himalayan salt
- 1 Tablespoon of steak Seasoning
- 1 Tablespoon of Mesquite Barbeque Seasoning
- In a cast-iron frying pan, brown and crumble the sausage until there is no more pink left in the meat. Set sausage aside.
- In a medium-sized saucepan, heat beans on medium-high. Add all of the spices and the cooked sausage and stir thoroughly.
- Let cook until it simmers.
- Allow it to cool slightly.
This is best served with buttermilk biscuits. It is one of Don’s favorite meals. It is simple, inexpensive, and somewhat nutritious.

Warm Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
Nothing says love more than the smell of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. This is another one of Don’s favorite treat and skoolie recipes. His mom used to make these on special occasions.
- 1 cup of pure can sugar (granulated)
- 1 cup of sweet brown sugar (i just like saying that)
- 3 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- ½ teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of Himalayan salt
- 2 cups of your favorite chocolate chips or chunks
- 1 cup of salted sweet butter (softened)
- 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
- Mix the butter and sugars until combined and creamy.
- Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract until fluffy.
- Mix in the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until it is all combined and roll into one large ball.
- Add all of the chocolate chips or chunks of chocolate. Use as much as you want to the dough and mix well.
- Roll 2-3 TBS (depending on how large you like your cookies) of dough at a time into balls and place them evenly spaced on your prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake in preheated oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. Take them out when they are just starting to turn a nice light brown.
(if you want crispy cookies, allow them to cook until medium brown)
- Let them sit on the baking pan for 2 minutes before removing them to the cooling rack.
- Pour a glass of milk and enjoy!
Nothing will warm your skoolie up and make it feel and smell like home like a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies!
The Best Grilled Cheese Ever
Nat is a master at making grilled cheese sammiches. She has perfected her own personal recipes over the years. She started off making these for her kids.
Now, she has perfected it for our skoolie recipes cookbook!
- Sourdough Bread (or your favorite sliced bread)
- 2 slices of your favorite cheese. Don likes a slice of Havarti and a slide of white cheddar.
- Salted sweet butter
- Parmesan Cheese
- Italian Seasoning
- Heat cast-iron pan on medium-low heat
- Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan and allow to melt
- Place cheese slices between the bread pieces
- Add slices of butter to the bread to cover the bread.
- Sprinkle bread with Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese
- Place in the center of the frying pan.
- Allow to brown as you repeat steps 4 through 6 on the opposite side of the bread.
- Once both sides are golden brown, remove from the cast-iron pan and place on a plate.
- Add more Parmesan cheese and serve
This is by far the best-tasting grilled cheese I have ever eaten. Serve this with a plate of your favorite chips or a cup of hot tomato soup.
