Breakfast Casserole

One of the great things about the internet is to be able to read recipes from all over the world. The term breakfast casserole keeps cropping up on American sites but they look far too rich for my simple breakfast tastes and they often use frozen potato gems or hash browns(bleurke lol).

Joe sleeps late and enjoys a cooked breakfast so I thought I'd have a go at this recipe which will make a nice lunch for me too.
Serves 4...
4 eggs
1/2 cup of milk(I used oat milk) whisked together

4 strips of lean bacon, chopped...I used hot salami today
up to 2 cups of chopped vegs such as onion, capsicum, zucchini, kale, (I used 1/2 cup of corn and peas too)
2 crushed garlic cloves
Sauted together and set aside to cool

4 cooked potatoes, chopped

Mix it all together, season well and place in a greased 8x8 inch tin or casserole dish, top with a cup full of grated cheese.
Now you can leave this covered in the fridge for up to 24 hours before you cook's that for convenience?
Bake at 180C for about 40 minutes or until set in the middle, eat and enjoy.

As I was preparing my 'casserole' it became obvious that I was making what I call an oven omelette or even a baked was delicious no matter what it's name!

My other project yesterday was to cut and hem a sweet tablecloth from the op-shop to make a kitchen curtain. I tried it for can see my reflection in the window!

I really didn't want to cut it but realised overnight that I would have looks better now, a new curtain for $3 and I used the off-cut to make a pelmet/fringe for our open plan wardrobe...

It looks so of these days Joe is going to put my Eiffel Tower metal print on the wall...that was $5 at BigW. Bargain!

Sleeping Beauty is very well...another blurry photo I'm afraid...

Bye bye for now,
Love from Sue


  1. That breakfast sounds yummy Sue and the curtain turned out great. Glad to hear dear Twitch is doing well xx

  2. I think that recipe would make a great meal for dinner too, Sue. I don't think I could eat it too early in the morning though. If I go out for brekky with friends now and again I can never eat a cooked breakfast like they can. Love the curtain. Very ingenious. By the way, I took a bunny photo for you at the weekend. So cute.

  3. Love your curtain idea, will save that. Looks beautiful :) x

  4. Read out the breakfast casserole ingredients to adult DS and showed him the photos. Looks like we'll be trying this out and not necessarily for breakfast :). Love the curtain. A great bargain and it looks fabulous!

  5. I love how you repurposed the table cloth into a curtain it looks lovely and the breakfast dish looks so good, I might just have to try it soon.
