1 Dozen Eggs (You can substitute those cartoned egg product if you like)
1/4 Cup Cream (I use Half & Half)
Salt & Pepper to taste
At this point I pick my additives. In the one pictured above I chose:
1lb Bacon (Fried crisp)
6oz Italian Sausage (Crumbled)
1can Diced Tomatos
1can Sliced Mushrooms
1handfull Fresh Spinach (sliced)
Sharp Cheddar Cheese
So what you do is line your baking pan with parchment paper. It makes it really easy to remove and then slice. Then you layer your additives into the pan. I started with the meats and then added the other items. I then sprinkled on about half of the cheese. You then mix up your egg mixture and whip the heck out of it. If you have a mixer, do it in that. The more air you can whip into the mixture the lighter and taller your bake will be. My arm still hurts from whisking mine. I did find a hint online that said you can add a quarter teaspoon of baking powder to the eggs to get them to puff up fluffier. I tried it and mine did fluff up big, but in the freezer they sunk again.
You then pour the egg mixture over the layered additives, top with the rest of the cheese and pop it in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. I under cooked mine by about 5 minutes only because I knew I would be freezing them and them nuking them in the microwave. Here is what it looks like coming out of the oven.
|Pam that pan under the parchment...I am still trying to soak mine!|
One note I do have. I used bacon in mine which I had fried very crisp. Unfortunately, once baked and nuked the bacon winds up kind of limp.
So give it a try! Let me know in the comments what you added.
