Aren't those some amazing gifts from the sponsors?!!  You will find the form to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post.  I wish I could get in on some of these goodies.



Today I am showcasing products from Eggland's Best and Cabot Creamery.



The recipe I am sharing will feed 3-4 as part of a meal or 2 as a complete meal.  The recipe is easily doubled and baked in a 9x13" pan for larger crowds.



It works as a nutritious, filling Brinner too.  It is a great way to use up leftovers and is easily adaptable to suit personal tastes.  Like onions? Add them.  Need some veggies in your diet?  Throw them in.  Don't care for ham?  Add whatever meat you like.


Yield: 2-4 servingsPin it

Farmer's Casserole

prep time: 15 MINScook time: 1 hourtotal time: 1 hours and 15 mins
This casserole is a complete meal and can be adjusted to suit individual tastes.

ingredients:

4 Yukon Gold Potatoes, diced
1/2 c, shredded Pepper Jack Cheese (I used Cabot)
1 c. diced cooked Ham
4 Scallions, white and light green parts, sliced
4 Eggs (I recommend Eggland's Best)
1 c.  Milk

instructions:

Place the diced potatoes in a pot and cover with water by 1".  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until fork tender, 7-12 minutes.  Drain and place into the bottom of a casserole that has been treated with cooking spray.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Add the ham and cheese to the casserole.  Sprinkle with the scallions.  

Whisk together the milk and eggs.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and pour over the ingredients in the casserole.  Bake in a preheated 350* oven until puffed, brown and set, 50-60 minutes. (A knife inserted in the center should remove cleanly).

  2. My favorite brunch is reheated pizza, but I don't always have that on hand. Cinnamon rolls or donuts are also a great option. I usually eat cereal for breakfast, so something sweet for brunch is always on the menu. I am always at work, so my brunch is always eaten alone, but if I had the opportunity, my family would be who I ate it with.
