I love Sunday breakfast with the family. It's a day of the week when we usually have no plans, we take our time, we relax, and we enjoy just doing our thing and hanging out. It's also usually the one day of the week when I get to take the time to fix a real full breakfast for the whole family, and I enjoy it.
I usually make some kind of pancakes or waffles, along with either bacon or sausage, and maybe some scrambled eggs. This Sunday I decided to freshen things up just a bit and experiment with a new egg dish. And I'm so glad I did - this was easy to make, mostly hands off, and very satisfying.
I'm not exactly sure what to call it - a crustless quiche, or maybe a baked scrambled egg. You could easily load this up with lots of extras, but I decided to keep it simple.
Ingredients: (which are approximate)
- 14 eggs (12 would have been fine, but I had 2 extra so I used them)
- 1/2 cup each of grated cheddar, jack, cottage, and parmesan cheese (any mixture of cheese will do)
- a splash of cream
- salt, pepper, garlic powder
I greased by baking dish with butter, and then coated that with most of the parmesan cheese. Then I beat all the eggs very well until frothy, with the cream, and my seasonings, and then folded in the cheeses. I poured the egg & cheese mixture in my dish, sprinkled the rest of the parmesan cheese on top. Then baked at 350 for about 45 minutes until puffed and golden and set.
With the eggs we had some fried polish sausage, toast, strawberries and cantaloupe, and honey yogurt (plain yogurt that has been sweetened with honey) with lemon curd. The lemon curd is an amazing addition to the yogurt and/or on top of the fruit. You can find my lemon curd recipe here.
