leftover breakfast casserole
- 8 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 2 cups of shredded cheese (split in half)
- your choice of diced fillings (I used ham and broccoli but there are many possible combinations and I'm sure that you will come up with some beautiful dishes yourself!)
- salt and pepper to taste
Crack eggs into a large bowl (big enough to mix all your fillings in too). Mix eggs, milk, and cheese together with some salt and pepper. Toss the fillings in with the egg and milk mixture to coat them. This quantity should be enough to fill an 8x8 pan (which you do not have to grease). Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes covered with foil. Remove foil and sprinkle remaining cheese over the the top and bake for another 15 minutes. Your bake times may vary depending on what kind of fillings you use - I used ALOT of fillings and it seemed to take a little longer than what other recipes seemed to be saying. Let casserole cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
And remember, I was making this up to so feel free to tweak the recipe - just share your tweaks with me so that I can try them next time I make this! =) Also, it would be really easy to make this the night before and just heat it up in the oven the morning you want it.
So this was our breakfast:
I'd love to know what other combinations of fillings you would try in this recipe. I hope that if you guys try it, you'll send me some pics and let me know how it goes!
Have a beautiful day!
