The Egg Casserole for Every Occassion

Hands down, this is the easiest egg casserole that I have ever made. It is all thanks to my equally granola friend, Sarah. I was introduced to this egg delicacy at a book club in which we discussed Persuasion by Jane Austen. Perhaps, this is why I have such fond feelings about this protein packed square egg dish.

You see, when I attend my book club, it makes me feel sophisticated, smart and interesting. I imagine that I no longer have poop under my fingernails, avocado in my hair, or a stained shirt on. However, it is hard to evoke philosophical thoughts while eating something called a casserole. It just lacks a suave sound. I am even more bummed to discover that the synonyms to casserole are even more droll: covered dish, goulash, and hash, to name a few.

One interesting synonym popped up: pottage. After researching this word, I remain disappointed. Pottage is a thick soup of vegetables and often meat.

How about egg guiso (Spanish word for casserole--but I don't know Spanish. Egg should probably be behind the guiso)?

Sophisticated Egg Wonder

or Guiso de Egg

or Egg Casserole, if you insist

12 eggs scrambled
2 cups milk
salt & pepper to taste (I typically use RealSalt Seasoning instead)

Mix the above ingredients together.

Cut 8 pieces of bread into cubes
Shred a lot of cheese and 1/2 package of turkey bacon

Create two layers of bread, cheese, and turkey bacon. Pour
the egg/milk mix over your rainbow of ingredients. Let the raw Egg Wonder sit overnight.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour, uncovered.
