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.

ham and cheese breakfast casserole

one of my better recipes for the breakfast crowd is this ham and cheese casserole.  like many others, it can be prepared a day ahead and just baked in the morning.

this recipe is easily adapted to include either bacon, ham or a breakfast sausage, if desired.  select a large deep casserole dish and prepare the following:

several slices of a crusty round bread
cooked ham, bacon or sausage
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
8 eggs (i use 4 eggs and the rest egg beaters)
1 1/2 cups of half and half
1 teaspoon salt

arrange the bread at the base of a casserole.  layer with the meat selection.  then, place cheese on top for the next layer.  pour egg mixture over the top.  chill overnight.  bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.

serve this with a fruit salad and a wonderful muffin or scone. this recipe will serve at least 8 guests.
