I'm going to look up some recipes for casseroles, I might be brave enough!!

I do pancakes and heat them up later. I have a good recipe my DD6 got from school, called Oregon Pancakes, they are great. We always have leftovers, so I freeze them, and it makes and easy snack for later. My DD3 likes peanut butter on them, and just fold them in half.

See Im not a huge egg fan either. Maybe thats why Ive not been pushed to do a breakfast casserole. I love me a deviled egg, but aside from that, I just tolerate them.

Oh yeah the french toast thing. Ive always done the dip and pan fry thing. Its always just ok. Never great. And its the bread that is the source of the ok-ness. I use regular ol sandiwch bread. We dont have stale bread, lol. I could let some go I guess, but I need to be in the mood for french toast.

That is when I love the bakery thrift store...getting breads other than sandwich bread, at a price that isn't overblown.

Thanks Karen for the quiche recipe!! I've been wanting to try one. Story about that...it'sone of the first things I amde in my freshman home ec. class. I kne how to cook NOTHING. I relied on my best friend and partner to do the cooking, and I ended up being her sous chef, never learned a thing in that class. The teacher didn't like me...she's had my sister 14 years earlier, didn't like her either and decided I wasn't worthy either...lol. Anyway, I remember tat quiche being really gross, but have had store bought ones since that were great. I really liked the ones with mushrooms. I'm going to take you recipe Karen and run with it!!

I do a good french toast, it's a fav. of the DH. I make mine with cinnamon, nutmeg and a little vanilla, and I try to use bread that is as stale as possible. If I have leftover bread from my bread machine (it's kind of thick anyway, and tnds to be dense) I prefer to use that. We're big egg eaters, I figure a dozen a day on weekends just for breakfast.

Ohh...I'm going to try your trash browns! That sounds really good. My mom made homemade hash sometimes, onion, potato, and ham maybe? I've never tackled it.

Now that you mentioned it, I do think she used leftover roast, or maybe steak. I have turkey that I need to either use or freeze, but I'm out of onions. Would you use raw potatoes, or cook them first? Bake or boil? I love to make hash browns with leftover baked potatoes, sliced thin and fried in bacon grease....yummm!!!
