Breakfast is my favorite meal, especially when it is served up at dinnertime, and extra-specially when it involves some form of egg & some form of bread. One of my all-time favorite recipe’s (and I actually came up with it on my own, even though I now know it is far from original) is a recipe that involves both! It is so simple & you can use the remnants of the past week’s meals & switch it up to include whatever ingredients you have lying around in your fridge.
Serves 4 People
8 Eggs, Beaten
¼ Cup Cream, ½ & ½ , Milk, Crème Fraiche, etc… (Whatever dairy you have in your fridge)
3 Tomatoes, chopped
Lots of Chopped Garlic
Lots of Chopped Fresh Thyme
Shredded Cheese (½ – 1 Cup)
Day old (or even older) Fresh Bread-Cut into 1 Inch Pieces
1 tsp. Salt (or to your preference)
1 tsp. Coarse Ground Pepper (or to your preference)
½ Tsp. Paprika (or to your preference)
Preheat the Oven to 400 Degrees.
Drizzle olive oil in the bottom of an 8 ½ by 11” Pan to coat. Lay bread at the bottom of the pan to form a layer. Mix together all other ingredients and pour over bread.
Cook at 400 Degrees for approximately 45 minutes, until center is set and bread peaking out is golden.
