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.
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!!
