Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

swiss breakfast squares

for an easy breakfast entree, these swiss breakfast squares can be made in less time than a standard quiche and offer a delicious alternative when preparation time is limited.  this recipe can be altered to taste and varied for different events.

begin by using a standard refrigerated crescent dough as the base in a 9 by 13 casserole pan.  mix together 3 eggs, 3/4 cup skim milk, 12 oz of shredded swiss cheese, and herbs to taste.  for this recipe, i used cut basil, chives, and italian parsley from the garden.  pre-baked maple bacon was added in broken crisps to the mixture as well.  this would be an option, and could be substituted with brocolli pieces, red or green pepper pieces, green onion, or even mushrooms. 

once the mixture is ready, spread over the base and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until browned.  the casserole will puff into a quiche-like presentation.

serve with a side salad for a luncheon alternative to a sandwich or as a breakfast entree. this recipe will serve 8-10 squares.
