Tasty Tuesday

I love eggs because they are an excellent source of protein, versatile, & inexpensive. Even the organic eggs I buy are only $4.99 a dozen, & while that seems pricey, it isn't when you consider all that you can do with them.

We also love breakfast for dinner at our house. Here is a recipe from All Recipes that we like. I tweak it a bit by adding some Dijon mustard & adjusting both the amount (we need way less for our family) & cooking time (it needs longer to cook that what it states). But it's a very thrifty dinner option, especially if you use whatever you have in the house for the meat (bacon, ham, sausage, etc.).

Egg Casserole

12 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 pounds ground breakfast sausage
16 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
7 slices white bread, torn

Preheat oven to 350 degrees & brown your sausage (or cook your bacon or dice your ham). Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray & add your bread, sausage, cheese, & then pour the eggs on top. Cover with foil.

Check after approx. 35 mins & top with remaining cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes longer, or until casserole is set cooked through.


  1. Can you share your adjustments please?

  2. I half it. So, 6 eggs, about 4 slices of bread (eye ball it!), about 3/4 lb of sausage, ham, whatever (again, eyeball...LOL), & 8 oz of cheese. I will admit I often use more cheese, because, really...how can there be such a thing as too much melted cheese?! :)

    Oh, salt & pepper to taste & add about 1 T of dijon (or plain) mustard.
