What’s not to love about having breakfast for dinner? You get to eat the foods you love when it’s dark outside, you can wear your jammies, and binge-watch the latest season of BoJack Horseman while you eat, so you got the cartoon aspect covered, too!
There are lots of good casserole recipes, or you can make pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, or even just cold cereal. But I have two quick egg recipes that require about six ingredients apiece and are perfectly portioned for one person!
- Savory Egg Bake (modified from a Weight Watchers recipe)
- No-stick cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon marinara or pizza sauce
- 1 tablespoon feta (or similarly crumbly cheese)
- 1 large egg
- Spices of your choice (the original recipe called for fresh thyme; I used garlic powder, herbes de Provence, and crushed red pepper flakes)
- 2 pieces bread for toast
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Spray ramekin with the cooking spray (be sure your ramekin can resist temperatures of 400!)
- Add all the ingredients into the ramekin (I like to poke my egg so it comes out runny)
- Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees
After it cools just a bit, enjoy with toast and fruit. Plenty of protein, filling, and super easy!
- Easiest Quiche EVER (modified from a Food.com recipe)
- 1 premade frozen pie crust
- 5 large eggs
- ¾ cup milk
- 2 cups filling – cheese, leftover veggies, meat, or any combination (for this one I use ½ cup cheese and 1½ cups from a bag of frozen onions, celery, and peppers, which I thawed and drained)
- Season to taste (I like crushed red pepper, garlic powder, and black pepper)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl
- Add the filling and milk, then mix all together
- Pour the egg mixture into the pie shell
- PLACE THE PIE ON A COOKIE SHEET (I have had more than one quiche drip onto my entire oven)
- Bake for about 50 minutes, until the top is browned, and a knife inserted in center comes out clean
This is so easy and so good. Enjoy with a green or fruit salad, and maybe a piece of toast. It refrigerates very easily for breakfast or lunch the next day.
There are so many ways to make this: Tex-Mex with peppers and steak, Italian with garlic, onions and spicy sausage, or the classic quiche Lorraine with bacon and Swiss cheese.
I am definitely not a huge egg fan, but these recipes are so simple that I can have them whipped up in very little time with minimal effort. And let the brenner party begin!
