If you’ve been around, you know my husband’s standby comment with regard to what I make is, “It’s pretty good.”
Anything more than “pretty good” and I know I’ve hit the jackpot.
And when I get a compliment better than “pretty good” for a meal that is absurdly easy to make, it’s like winning the dinner lottery.
Or in this case, the breakfast for dinner lottery. I’m easing back into the kitchen with what you, long-time watchers of the Food Network might consider a semi-homemade meal, and it’s working so far.
On last night’s agenda: ham, egg, and cheese biscuit bake.
To make it, you will need:
- 1 package refrigerated biscuit dough
- 10 eggs
- 1 C shredded cheddar
- 1/2 C Parmesan, or other melty cheese
- 1 ham steak, cubed*
- 1 small onion, small diced
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- chives or scallions, chopped, if you have them (I didn’t)
Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a casserole dish, or spray with baking spray. Place biscuits in a single layer in the dish. Beat eggs with a whisk. Stir in cheeses, ham, onion, garlic powder, and lots of fresh ground black pepper. Bake 35 minutes or till eggs are set. Top with chives and scallions.
*A note that ham steaks are in the meat section of your grocery store, and are already fully cooked. They’re like giant slices of the ham your family cooks for Christmas or Easter. A smaller side note that I have never successfully recooked a ham. I can’t ever get it hot enough. Or glazed in a way I like. A challenge for another day.
