The Egg Diaries - May 5th to May 11th

The Egg Diaries - A weekly journal documenting my egg use, to help myself and others use all the beautiful eggs, our hens lay for us.  Now, a Blog Hop, so you can join in by sharing the ways in which you use your eggs.  Link up at the bottom of the page.


This is going to be a short and menu-less post today.  We've been so busy in the garden and tending the chickens (buffalo gnat season and we manually apply a gnat repellent to them 2 to 3 times a day) and today is no different.  Trying to find time to sit at the computer is difficult these days.

~I do have a delicious recipe for you~

Those of you who are looking for recipes that use large amounts of eggs will be happy this week because I am sharing a great recipe that I used last Wednesday for dinner.  It uses a dozen eggs!  

I love it because you can make it, using just about anything you have in the pantry and refrigerator.  It's wonderful for using up leftovers.  Served with a salad it makes a delicious supper and if there is any left over, it will taste great reheated for breakfast.  It will be different every time you make it, but will taste delicious every time.

12 Egg Casserole

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 8 x 11 inch or 9 x 9 inch casserole

Layer in your casserole:
any leftovers you have in the fridge (anything goes)

ground beef, ham, sausage, chicken
broccoli, spinach, corn, tomatoes

Add herbs, salsa, sour cream, spaghetti sauce, whatever you think will go with the combination in the pan, or what ever you have little bits of left in jars in the fridge.

Add 2 cups of grated cheese (any kind, any mixture of cheeses)

Beat 12 eggs and pour evenly over the top.

Garnish the top with chopped parsley, pepper and paprika.

Bake for 30 - 35 minutes until it pulls away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted into the center pulls out clean.  (baking times may differ depending on your ingredients)



If you have chickens, use eggs every day.  It's really not that difficult.  For ideas on how to use your eggs see my past Egg Diaries for menu ideas and come back next week for new menus and new recipes.
