Sometimes at breakfast, I'm just too groggy to even think about actually making something! Most weekdays around here breakfast is usually a natural applesauce or yogurt cup, some cut up fruit, and toast with butter. I was really searching for a breakfast casserole that has a basic start and then you add whatever is left in the fridge. I have finally found it! This was great, and I also love that it only uses 6 eggs. A lot I've tried call for an entire dozen - that's a lot for one meal! If you try this, let us know what variations you've used and how you liked it!
1 cup fridge leftovers (I used 4 slices crumbled bacon and 3/4 cup torn spinach leaves)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
salt & pepper
Spray the bottom and sides of a 9x9 baking dish. Spread hashbrowns in dish and add leftovers, in this case bacon and spinach. Sprinkle cheese over top. In medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk; pour over other ingredients in dish. Salt and pepper on top. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until middle is set. Allow to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
I think some other good options would be ham, tomato, mushrooms, steamed broccoli -- be creative! A great way to get a nutritious breakfast into your family and uses valuable leftovers. Win-win!
