Overnight Brunch

This is a great recipe to make the night before a holiday morning like Easter or Christmas. It makes the morning so much easier.

16 slices of bread
8 slices of deli ham, or enough to cover bread
8 slices of cheddar cheese, or enough to cover bread

Egg mixture:
6 large eggs
3 cups milk, I find whole or 2% to be the best
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
2 green onions, chopped
1 small green pepper , chopped

Topping:
1/4 cup melt margarine
2 cups crushed potato chips, I use stale ones

Trim off crusts from bread and fit into a well butter 9 X 13″ pan. Cover with ham and then cheese. Place remaining bread slices on top (like sandwiches). In large bowl, beat eggs. Mix in milk, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and salt. Stir in chopped onions and green pepper. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, preheat oven to 350. Drizzle top of casserole with melted margarine. Sprinkle with crushed potato chips. Bake uncovered for 45-55 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Breakfast Casserole

You can speed up the prep process by finding those bags of precut and par-cooked potatoes.

5-6 medium size potatoes–peeled and cut into 1/4 inch chunks
5-6 strips bacon
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
6 eggs
1 cup shredded cheese–whatever kind you like
salt & pepper

In a large, deep skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Reserve enough of the bacon grease to cook potatoes. Place potatoes, onion, & bell pepper in skillet and cook until done. Then make 6 small wells in the potatoes. Crack 1 egg into each well. Cover and let cook about 5 minutes or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon, salt & pepper, and cheese.

Turn fire off and cover for about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serves 6.
