Leftovers for Breakfast- my real food version
- 2 T. Butter
- leftover potatoes- I usually use 3 or 4 baked. I've put raw in as well, as there is plenty of time for them to cook.
- leftover veggies, about 2 cups- anything would work; sauteed zucchini, broccoli, green beans, peas, spinach or other greens... whatever you have leftover. Or if you're short on leftover veggies, you could dice up a pepper and an onion (I would add an onion either way...).
- leftover meat, around 2 cups (I usually use a little less)- I've done leftover bacon, steak, and pork chops. I've also done it with raw bacon and raw sausage (again, there is plenty of cooking time for it to get done).
- 1 cup shredded cheese (whatever kind you have/want)
- 6-8 eggs
- 1 cup milk
That's it! Easy peasy breakfast casserole. Most often we have this on Monday morning to use up the weekend's leftovers.
It is best to do this RIGHT before you go to bed so it doesn't cook any longer than it has to. I also have my husband turn it "keep warm" when he wakes up.

She may not be 100% on the same page as me when it comes to food philosophy, but I believe that she has a lot to contribute, especially when it comes to saving time and money in the kitchen.
