the snowstorm essentials.
these things are probably gone in a lot of grocery stores today.
and tonight, i am craving them all together.

what do you call this dish at your house? an egg casserole? baked eggs? in this region of the country i've learned it's called egg bake. cute. whatever you call it, i am in love with it. (i secretly hope it's at every bridal/baby shower/brunch i go to.)

well tonight i'm having egg bake. i just decided. it will be egg bake minus the milk, because we're out. we also don't have any meat fitting for an egg dish, but that's alright. we don't need it. it's also going to be egg bake by myself, because grant is at class. so... i really didn't need to make dinner tonight. but i needed egg bake. tonight. so who wants to humor a pregnant lady and eat milkless egg bake with me?! it will be fun. we can watch the 4 episodes of top chef i have recorded after we do the dishes. or maybe sit and wait for new recipes to pop up on tastespotting. have you ever been to that place? it's dangerous.

i need it right now egg bake

1 cup croutons (homemade if you can, please!!)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 eggs
1 T. water
1 T. olive oil
1 tsp. mustard
1 or 2 green onions, finely chopped
2 dashes of salt and pepper

make croutons, if you don't have any on hand. lay croutons in a small baking dish or loaf pan and layer cheese on top. whisk together eggs, water, olive oil, mustard, green onion, and salt and pepper. pour egg mix over croutons and let sit 15 minutes. bake at 350 for 30 minutes. let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.

sorry no pictures... yet. :) it's dark outside, so maybe tomorrow?
have a lovely evening!

i ate this meatless, milkless egg bake. and it was goooooood.

Love egg casserole, one of my favorite dishes my mom made growing up.

Yes, tastespotting is certainly dangerous! I believe you could also made a delectable desserty bread pudding with eggs, milk, and bread. Oh, bother, now I'm craving some...

oh shoot, summer! just took a peek at what tastespotting was and now i'm addicted. 5 minutes was all it took. i'm actually grateful for the tip off because i really need to cook more. my poor husband...;)

Made this tonight because a)Sam wasn't home for supper (always less motivation when he's not home:) b) needed something that sounded good to this preggers, and c)not a lot of food in the house tonight SO, it was a hit by me and Truman, (Tava is still warming up to the idea of eggs in her world). Thanks for sharing this simple quick meal Summer!
