This week's cooking from your stockpile is giving homage to CASSEROLES! We all love a good casserole now and then. You basically just toss the ingredients into a pan, throw it in the oven and Tah-Dah! A meal in a pan!
This week I made a Make-Ahead Breakfast casserole. This means you can make this the night before and throw it in the oven about 30 minutes right before you serve it. This not only saves time, but stress from having to rush around the kitchen early in the morning to feed your hungry family.
So here's the lowdown on the ingredients
(and what I paid for them, of course!):
One Roll of Sausage ($.99 at Homeland)
1/2 Doz. Eggs (.99/doz at Homeland)
2 Green Peppers (FREE! at Target)
2 cups of Shredded cheese ($1.10)
1 bag of Frozen hashrowns (.80 at Target)
2 cups milk ($.50 or so worth out of the gallon)
Total cost for this meal= $4.38. (FYI- this would feed well over a family of 4)
Preheat your oven to 375.
Take the roll of sausage and fry in a frying pan. Drain and let cool. Set aside.
Take bag of frozen hash-browns and spread it in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Dice bell peppers (make them small so they will cook thoroughly) and sprinkle them on top of hash browns.
Sprinkle half of the cheese over the hash-browns and peppers.
Once the sausage has been cooled, spread it on top of the ingredients already in the pan. Then layer the rest of the cheese on top of the sausage.
Crack all eggs into a mixing bowl. Pour in milk and whisk until all egg yolks have been broken and completely mixed with the milk.
After you mix the eggs, pour it into the pan. It should look something like this:
Put it in the oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes or the egg has cooked completely.
My husband was the one who took it out, but he made sure it was done by taking a toothpick and inserting it into the middle until it came out clean.
After it's fully cooked, serve and enjoy! Yumm!
