Easy Breakfast Bake (and a great way to clean out the fridge.)

My husband got some left over ham out of the freezer the other day to make sandwiches to take in his lunch. (It’s impossible to find a spiral ham small enough for two people, so we freeze half of it.) We had so much of it, that he’s tired of ham sandwiches, and there was still a good portion left. Not being one to waste, I went to my handy-dandy “Breakfast bake” recipe.

I guess it’s not really a recipe at all. It’s kind of an idea of foods I throw together to clean out the fridge. Today I had a half an onion that was on it’s way out, the extra ham, less than a cup of shredded cheese, 1 cup of milk and 3 eggs. Add to that a cup of bisquick, and voila- breakfast for the week.

(Don’t be fooled, that recycled egg carton has farm fresh eggs in it.)

So here’s a quickie on how to make this quick breakfast:

Spray a 8×11 or 9×13 pan (depending on how much you intend to make) with cooking spray.

Spread 1-1.5 cups of meat cut up (today it was ham, but I’ve used bacon, sausage…whatever.) and 1 cup-ish of shredded cheese on the bottom of the pan. I also chopped up the extra onion and threw in, but not necessary.

Mix together 1 cup bisquick, 3-4 eggs, and 1 cup milk.

Pour it over the goodies in the pan.

You could throw a handful of frozen hashbrowns, extra cheese, or whatever on it. I just added some pepper.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 mins, or until golden brown around the edges, and cooked in the middle.

Let it cool, cover and put it in the fridge for breakfasts. It stays good for a couple days. It also makes a good dinner!!

Now, sit back, and enjoy some breakfast bake, and bask in the vastness of the shelf space in your fridge!!
