For breakfast today, I decided to wing it - and got mixed reviews. I decided to make my own version of a breakfast casserole. I knew I was doomed from the start, because my dear hubby HATES casseroles. I am determined to change his mind about them - and I think I have presented some pretty compelling arguments for the humble one-dish meal - but to him, this particular attempt was not as successful as I would have liked.
The kids, on the other hand, DEVOURED theirs. In fact, I missed getting a picture of my fresh-from-the-oven casserole because my two little vultures were circling, acting like they hadn't eaten for a year.
As for me? Sorry hon, I love you with all my heart, but I have to side with the kids on this one - I thought it was yummy.
Bread (I used the rest of the loaf of herb bread I made the other day.)
Cube the bread up and put it in your baking dish. Sprinkle with a few handfuls of cheddar cheese.
Cut the bacon into bite-sized pieces and brown over medium heat to render out the fat.
Sprinkle the bacon on top of the cheese.
Pour over the bread and let it sit for a few minutes to soak in. If you don't have enough egg mixture, don't worry - just whip up a little more and pour it over!
Throw it in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes to an hour. Take it out when it is nice and bubbly brown and the egg is set.
Here is mine after the vultures were done.
Such a yummy, warm, tummy-pleasing breakfast - go ahead and have a big ole piece, then take a nap!! :)
On an unrelated note...I just noticed that a bunch of my posts have DISAPPEARED!! I'm so bummed!! :(
