Happy Tasty Tuesday! Who enjoys breakfast for dinner? We do in our household, and I fixed this the other night for dinner. It’s a great meal to serve with fresh fruit or bread. This week’s recipe for Breakfast Casserole comes from one of my favorite Amish cookbooks, “The Esh Family Cookbook”. It’s a great cookbook full of recipes, poems, and snippets throughout the pages written by a very sweet family.
If you are craving breakfast food today, here’s the recipe…
Breakfast Casserole, Mrs. Sally Ann Esh (Mel), page 42, “The Esh Family Cookbook”
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. bisquick
1/4 c. melted butter
1 c. shredded cheese
8 strips bacon, crumbled
Mix milk, bisquick, eggs, and butter. Put bacon and cheese on top. Press below surface with a fork. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let stand for 10 minutes.
From Sally Ann: “This is a casserole I like to mix Saturdays when we have church the next day, for a simple breakfast.”
One thing I learned after fixing this my very first time years ago was to eliminate the melted butter. I think they use that sort of like we use a baking spray (like Pam, etc.). I no longer put the butter into the mixture, and the casserole still comes out nice and fluffy. Just remember, if you also eliminate the butter, to spray your baking dish with a spray to help it not stick.
And since I just love this cookbook, I’m going to give one lucky person a copy of it. All you have to do to get entered for your chance to win is leave a comment telling me your favorite breakfast meal. I’ll post the winner next Tuesday. Good luck!
