going casserole crazy

7 Jun

Eek! Wow, what a busy week! Well, I’ve been doing a lot of paper grading and . . . can you guess what else I’ve been doing from the blog title? That’s right! Casserole making! I don’t know what came over me the last week but I was craving something warm and satisfying, something to really hit the spot. And of course I thought, duh, casserole!

Here are some of the yummy things I’ve been cooking up while I’ve been slaving away grading. I went a little casserole crazy to put it simply.

Breakfast Sausage and Egg casserole! this is by far one of my new all time favorite breakfasts. It’s really simple to make and I like the fact that you can really customize this baby to your own tastes and particularities.

Served with a dollop of greek yogurt…

Recipe:

6 eggs
1/2 lb. ground sausage (browned)
1 cup green beans
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup tomatoes
1 cup cheese
2 tbs blue cheese
salt and pepper
1 tbs fresh thyme
splash of heavy cream

Mix eggs and then stir in all other ingredients in a large bowl. Butter a square casserole dish. Pour contents of bowl into the pan and bake uncovered for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees.  Serve with a dollop of plan greek yogurt or sour cream and a side of salsa. Yum, yum!

For dinner the other day I made this yummy chicken and bean casserole!

I  loved this casserole so much I made it twice in one week…..that should tell you something!

I got the recipe here but substituted the canned green beans for fresh and also added in some cauliflower and fresh herbs (thyme especially).

Now I’m off to bed. More fun post coming soon I promise!

When was the last time you made a casserole?
