Quiche Casserole

1 – 8 oz can Pillsbury Big & Flaky Crescent rolls

3/4 cup milk
1 Tablespoon minced onion
6 slices bacon (fried & crumbled)
1 Tablespoon parsley
1/4 Teaspoon Season Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Tablespoon honey mustard if desired
Open the crescent rolls and firmly press them into a lightly greased 13” x 9” pan. Place Swiss cheese slices on top of the pastry dough, enough to cover dough. In a small bowl combine eggs, milk, onions, salt & pepper, and honey mustard if desired. Pour egg mixture over dough. Sprinkle with bacon bits and parsley. Loosely cover with foil and bake at 375 for about 1 hour, 15 minutes or until done. Cool 10 minutes, cut and serve. This recipe is the home version of what I serve at the Inn.

Holiday Baked Egg

This recipe is convenient because you can make the exact number of servings you desire.
1 Package Phyllo Dough
Bacon, microwaved, cut into 1″ pieces (1 piece per serving)
Swiss cheese
Eggs
Pinch each, Garlic powder, salt, & pepper
Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Medium Salsa
Mushrooms, sliced and sauted
Spray small round tart pans, 4 1/2 inches x ½ inch deep, with cooking spray. Cut phyllo dough into about 5″ squares. Place three squares in each pan. Place 4 – 5 pieces of microwaved bacon pieces inside the rim, then place small pieces of swiss cheese inside the tart just inside the rim in a circle. This will create a “nest” for the egg, so the egg stays centered. Sometimes if the egg yolk bumps against a piece of fried bacon, the sharp edge will break the yolk.
Sprinkle spices on egg; place a heaping teaspoon of salsa on one side of the egg and garnish with cheddar cheese and mushrooms if desired.
Bake 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.
Enjoy!
NOTE: Phyllo dough keeps well in the freezer if kept in a Zip-Loc bag. I thaw and use only what I need.

Apple Crisp

6 tart apples 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup water
Topping 1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 2/3 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
Preheat oven to 350. Peel, core, and slice the apples. In a large bowl combine them with the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and water. Place evenly over the bottom of a greased 9” x 13” pan. To make the topping, combine all ingredients and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle over the apples. Bake at 350 for approximately 1 hour. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Creamy Scrambled Eggs

Serves 4
8 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
Dash of freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1/2” cubes
1 tablespoon fresh cut green onion tops
1 teaspoon parsley for garnish
In large bowl beat together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. In a large, and lightly oiled skillet , heat the butter to sizzling. Pour in the egg mixture. When the eggs just begin to set on the bottom, run a spatula underneath, lifting up the cooked egg and letting the uncooked egg flow to the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle in the cream cheese pieces and chopped onions. Continue cooking in the standard manner for scrambled eggs. When the eggs are set, the cheese will be melted. Serve immediately, garnished with the chopped parsley.

Baked Oatmeal

2 cups oatmeal, quick or regular
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325. In a large bowl combine the oatmeal, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl mix the milk, eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla until blended, then pour into the dry mixture. Add cranberries. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Bake at 325 for 45 – 60 minutes until done. Serve hot, topping each serving with vanilla and another flavor or yogurt. Top with several slices of strawberries, peaches, or a few blueberries. This presents beautifully when served with two kinds of yogurt and two fruits, and this is a very healthy dish. Serves 6-8.

2 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

I prefer quick oats. Stir melted butter into oatmeal, then mix in all other listed ingredients together. Mix at least 8 hours ahead so that the oatmeal soaks in liquids. If too thick, add a little more milk. This batter freezes very well.
