|CHRISTMAS BRUNCH CASSEROLE
1 dozen eggs
1/2 Cup milk
8 oz. sour cream
about 2 Cups diced ham (may substitute sausage, cooked and drained, or cooked links cut
into bite-sized pieces, or crumbled bacon)
about 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, swiss, jack or combination, depending on your own
Beat together eggs and milk. (Crack eggs into bowl, and discard shells before you start
beating!) Fold in sour cream until well blended. Add your choice of meat or skip it for a
meatless version, and desired amount of cheese. (That's the beauty of this recipe - use
what YOUR family likes. We like lots of cheese!) Pour into buttered 9X13 glass baking pan.
(Aluminum may turn the eggs gray!) Bake at 350 F until set, and just beginning to turn
golden on top. Cut into squares. This will serve up to 12, depending on the size of the
squares you cut. Talk about versatile, you can't ruin it, so use as many eggs and as much
meat and cheese as you need to feed your group. Just keep the milk and sour cream in the
same general proportions to the eggs and use an appropriate size glass casserole.
(This is so easy and fool-proof IF you follow the directions exactly!)
