Kyle's Favorite Breakfast

There exists the ubiquitous breakfast casserole.  This one happens to be gluten free.  I made my own hash browns during the last OAMC session.  If you don't have them, just line your casserole with pre-made hash browns.  Whatever you choose to do, this is scrumptious, and this is Kyle's Favorite Breakfast.  James told Kyle that he really likes it, too!

Take a 9 x 13" pan and grease it, one way or the other.  Bacon grease, PAM, butter, whatever you like.  Then line the bottom with either your home cut and pre-cooked potatoes (as I have done this time), or those nice little hash brown patties you can buy anywhere.

Now...on top of that you need some meat.  Bacon, ham, sausage -- whatever you have.  Tonight we have leftover ham from dinner the other night.  Oy, do we have leftover ham!!!  So we cut up about 3 cups of leftover ham and sprinkled it over the potatoes.  You could do sausage, bacon, whatever you like.  3 cups is a guide -- you could use more or less.

Now -- sprinkle about 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese on top of that.  Don't skimp on the cheese -- I have tried to in the past, and it's not worth the result.  So really lay that cheese on top!!

Finally, take a bowl and break 8 or 10 or 12 eggs into it -- depending on how many you're feeding.  Add 1 cup of milk, some salt and some pepper.  And then the mustard.  I use dry, powdered mustard, but you could use prepared mustard.  Whatever you have.  Whisk it all together in the bowl, and then pour over everything else in the pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees until done and slightly brown.  About an hour, I have found.

And friends, is this wonderful!!!  You need an extra walk around the block after this breakfast, unless you have a field to plow or animals to feed.  It's not low fat, not low calorie.  But it is gluten free!  And  yummy!  And of course, Kyle's favorite!
