I'm not sure if you noticed a common theme that is emerging around these parts: I'm visiting friends and relatives, asking them to cook for me, and then posting their recipes here on Arugula Files. It started with Uncle Sonny's eggplant parmesan and next I posted Jesse's Glogg (a perfect drink for the holidays). And now, here's Nina's breakfast casserole. In my mind this is what Michael Scott (The Office) would call a "win, win, win." I win because I don't have to cook anything, my friends and relatives win because they don't have to write a blog and they still get their masterpieces published, and finally, and most importantly of course, you win (um, right?).
That was a long way to say, I'm tired. This week I'll be eating grilled cheese for dinner. Since this blog isn't called the Grilled Cheese Files (TM for a future date!), I'll avoid posting about it seven nights in a row. Instead here's a recipe from my friend Nina.
6 eggs, beaten
3 cups of whole milk
10 pieces of white bread, no crust, torn into pieces
½ cup of butter
2 tsp of dry mustard
4 cups of shredded cheese
Add whatever (bacon, sausage, spinach, kale, arugula, mushrooms, potatoes...)
Combine ingredients in a casserole pan
Bake 325 for one hour
