New Recipe: Country Breakfast Pot Pie

When I really want to cook dinner but have zero energy to put into thinking of what to make it usually comes down to two things: breakfast or BLTs. Last night breakfast won out. I want an omelet! I said. But then I found this breakfast casserole of sorts on the Pillsbury website. Plus, it's almost the end of February and I thought I needed a second new recipe for the month...but it turns out this is my third. It's been a long month. Anyway, you can find the recipe HERE. It was pretty yummy and I know this because Husband said he would eat it again. I didn't read through the recipe - something I really should start doing - before deciding to make this or before buying the ingredients so I had to fudge a few things but it all worked out.

Everything for breakfast in one place - YUM!

Cookin' the taters!

Grant hung out in the kitchen with me and seems to like to watch me cook!
I can't wait until he can be my little helper :)
Choppin' the ham

Look at all that cheesy goodness!

Cooking the egg & ham mixture
(I really could have eaten it just like this with a piece or three of buttered toast)

Ready for the oven!

Ready for my belly!

  • The recipe called for an 11" x 7" (2 quart) casserole dish which I did not have. My options were an 8" x 8" (2 quart) casserole dish or a 13" x 9" (3 quart) casserole dish. I was afraid the 8" wouldn't hold it all so I went with the bigger one. It didn't have an impressive thickness to it like the Pillsbury picture but it was still yummy.
  • I added an extra egg to be sure my egg mixture covered the pan but I left all other amounts the same.
  • I accidentally bought the regular croissants (not the big & whatever ones called for in the recipe). They worked out fine.
  • I forgot green onions so I substituted my trusty onion powder and I didn't miss the chives at all.
  • Great brunch recipe!
As a side note I just want to say that I love sharing and recieving recipes. Since I've been posting recipes here I've been told by two people that they've tried a recipe that I've posted. My mother-in-law tried the Chicken Pot Pie recipe and my friend Jen tried the Lasagna Roll Ups recipe (she even doubled it for company). I get irrationally excited when people tell me that they've tried - and loved - a recipe that I've shared. Husband makes fun of me for it but I don't care because it makes me happy :)
