Baking Breakfast Together

Filed under: Food, Love, My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 13:25

Hello Everyone.  Thanks for coming by, pull up a chunk of wi-fi and have a stretch out.   Some of you may know I have good days, and I have not good days.  Well that is not special, we all have that.  What makes mine a bit different is my health issues including pain problems can make a not so good day both happen a lot more often and makes them be quite a bitch.  However the great thing for me is I have it very good comparatively and with out being a blind pollyanna  I would say I am a lucky person.   I am rather happy.  I am not going to write a post on all the bitchy health stuff I am dealing with.   Instead I am going to tell you the great thing we did this morning.

Ron and I love to do stuff together.  One of the things we love to do is cook together.  I admit I use to do more of my share of it than I do now, but I still am part of the two man team.   Yesterday I came up with the idea of creating a breakfast bake this morning.  I had made one 11 years ago and Ron loved it.  So I gave Ron a list of things we needed and off he went to the store.  The last time I had to cook everything in advance, prepare it , and then bake the finished mixture.   

Ah how things have improved.   Ron was able to get a couple bags of precooked crumbled sausage and bacon.   The ham also was cut up, even though Ron did cut it smaller.   We got a huge bowl out and I went to town creating my own recipe.   First I added the crumbled meats with the chopped ham.   Then I added three different types of shredded cheeses.  Then Ron cut up a velveeta spicy cheese and added that.  Then I added a bunch of hash browns, which are simply shredded potatoes.  Now if you like peppers and onions you can add them.  Once we had all the stuff in the bowl, I mixed it up by hand.   

Ron had 6 really nice mini loaf cooking pans.   I filled them with the mixture up to about an inch from the top of the pan.   At the same time Ron took 9 eggs and put them in a bowl and using his new stick blender I got him, he whipped them up with some water.  This he poured over the mixture in the baking pans up to the top level of the mixture.   This gives the eggs room to rise as they soak into every part of the mixture.   Ron gave the pans a shake as he filled them as the eggs settle  in the nooks and crannies.  

We preheated the convection countertop oven to 425.   We set the timer at 30 minutes.  We checked them at 20 minutes to make sure.   Ron ate a slice or two and pronounced them great.   I ate mine with hot sauce.  I did not add salt with the mixture as I prefer people to add the salt at the time of eating as people have such different tastes.   I agree it was great.   The most wonderful thing is Ron and I did it together.  It was a great joy to be creating side by side as we made this with no measurements or complete recipe.   Poor Ron had to do all the clean up as just the small part I did wore me out, but he did not mind at all.  

Here are some pictures.  Sorry I did not think to take the pictures until after it had been baked and we started to eat.      Be well.  May your days not be bitchy.   Hugs



  1. Those look scrumptious!! I can smell ’em!

    I just had some company and made them artichoke dip. Problem was, I have a fire in the wood cook stove today and it was really hot – so the dip (which was supposed to be nicely brown) came out dark brown and bubbly! Eeek! I guess it still tasted good, though. I also made some egg tart squares. (I bet you call them butter tarts, eh?)

    Glad you enjoyed your cooking adventure. . . And you have leftovers – best part! 🙂

    • Hello Carmen. The left overs will come in great for Ron when he comes home from work. I am not normally up and around yet, so after a 12 hour shift he has to put a Jimmy Dean breakfast in the microwave. The next two days he can have one of the leftover loafs. Just the right size. I have to say I bet your dip was great no matter how it looked. Do you always cook on the wood stove ??? I have heard bread and stuff like that comes out great in a wood oven. Hugs

      • I have an electric stove, too but when I have a fire in it, I use the wood stove. I have to be really careful with it because it’s hard to regulate the temperature. . .like today, when I think it was up to about 500 degrees. . :). I was distracted by my company and just caught the darned stuff before I ruined it. (This is my fourth wood stove since we’ve been married and we just got this one in the Fall so I’m not used to it yet – I need more practice). You can’t beat it for coziness, though and it was chilly today.

    • Hello Carmen. Yes, I did , I disliked the photo, I dislike the shirt, the way my hands were, the whole thing. Now I have to do another one, I trimmed my goatee off, leaving just the mustache. Next week I will post a new pic or two. 🙂 Hugs
