(breakfast) Post of Shame.

Monday, February 14, 2011

So....It just occurred to me today I haven't posted up anything in QUITE awhile. This is my post of shame. I am so sorry but I'm not sure if anyone reads this anyways. Regardless, I want to bring it back! I warn you all (to the one friend reader) that I am quite busy now and will do my best.

Let's start the year off with..............


I went through a breakfast casserole phase. I'm actually still kinda going through it. But don't tell anyone.

Basic Oven Omelette (from thekitchn.com)
Serves 6


10 large eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup diced cooked ham
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray.

2. Beat the eggs in a large bowl and whisk in the milk. Stir in the cheese, diced ham, and parsley. Season with the salt and pepper and pour into the prepared pan. (At this point the casserole can be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)

3. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is slightly golden and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.

I substituted some turkey bacon because that's what I had in my fridge and added lots of veggies like green bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. Yum! It's a great way to get your servings of vegetables!
