1/3 C flour

2 drops of vanilla

This is a nice breakfast for two, or part of a breakfast for more people. Preheat oven to 375° F. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a cast iron skillet, or other ovenproof baking dish (corning, pyrex), until bubbly but not brown. Whisk the other ingredients together and pour into hot pan. Bake 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Slide onto plate and fill with fruit or preserves, fold and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and serve. Submitted by Dawn Jeske, Orchard Lake Oregon.


Egg and Cheese Casserole

2-1/2 cups milk

6 slices bread, crumbled

There are many good variations on this basic dish, depending on your mood.  You can spice it up with salsa and cooked crumbled sausage, or just throw in some cooked bacon.  Or sauté some mushrooms and onions and add them to the mix if you have time. Serves 4-6. Because you put this together the night before, it is a nice, no sweat breakfast that you and your guests can enjoy while relaxing and perhaps taking in the view.
