breakfast casserole




(you can pretty much substitute/ add anything you have in the fridge when making this. it's sort of idiot-proof. you can make a healthier version with egg whites, or go all out fatty with fried bacon. throw in some green peppers if you go for that sort of thing. use pepper jack cheese. try hash browns instead of bread. you get the idea.)

ingredients:
6 eggs
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 of a small loaf of sour dough bread, cubed
2 cups skim milk
salt, pepper, secret seasonings
low sodium ham

directions:
preheat oven to 350°F.   beat the eggs in a large bowl.  mix in the milk and cheese.  add the bread and carefully stir until all pieces of bread are moistened (don't over mix or the bread may disintegrate). add ham (or any breakfast meat you prefer.) add salt and pepper to taste. 

butter a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish. pour mix in and bake in oven for 50 minutes to an hour, until the top is browned and the center springs back when touched. remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. it's enough for about 8, and is really good reheated.

variations:
cornbread would make a great change.  you can add bread crumbs on top to make it more crusty.  egg beaters to make it healthy.  if you use any vegetables, cook them down first.

That's either a lint remover or a very very tiny recliner.

glittergirl said...

there is a lot of dog hair on that thing, but no, not a lint remover or mini-recliner.

Erin O'Brien said...

Wow! My ass could use a sacrowedgy!

Chris said...

How in the hell were we supposed to get that it was a sacrowedgy?!?

glittergirl said...

EOB- i'll give you mine. it doesn't have the dog hair on it like my mom's. just hand over the disney toy and the sacro-wedgy thing is yours!

chris- that's the point of a guessing contest. duh.

i think they advertised this thing a few years back, maybe a late night infomercial.

I'm not going to visit a site with wedgy in the title URL from work. What exactly is a sacrowedgy? Is it something that uses the Lord's name in vain while yanking up on your shorts?

rachel said...

Yes... me too.

what is that thing!??

From the FAQ:

Q. How does the SACRO WEDGY® work?

A. While lying and relaxing on the SACRO WEDGY®, the sacrum (wedged shaped bone between the hips - tailbone) is cradled and elevated, isolating the sacrum causing it to be in a non-supportive or neutral position and allows the hips to be suspended. Gravity takes over and total relaxation allows the hips to return naturally to proper alignment. The more you relax, the better it works.

Is this some type of sex toy?

Mojito Libre said...

So, it's like those wedge pillows they sell in the back of Maxim?

Chris said...

they sell stuff in maxim?

Mojito Libre said...

Well, it's like Esquire and GQ, where they have some ads scattered through the last few pages. There's usually one for monogrammed shirts or ties and then there's the ad selling Pheremones for Sexual Attraction usually tagged with a picture of the "inventor"...who happens to be the most butt-ugly woman I have ever seen in my life.

Chris said...

Seeing your profile pic and reading the line "i didn't touch the pwetty lady" just made me choke on my coffee.
