    Default 3 Different Egg Casserole Recipes

    Ham and Potato Scramble
    4 servings

    1 16 oz container egg beaters (or 8 eggs slightly beaten)
    ¼ cup milk
    ¼ cup thinly sliced green onions
    ¼ tsp garlic salt
    ¼ tsp black pepper
    1 TBS butter
    1 cup refrigerated shredded has browns
    ½ cup diced low-fat, low salt cooked ham (2 oz)
    1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Beat together eggs, milk, green onions, spices. Set aside. In large skillet, melt butter. Add potatoes and ham. Cook 6-8 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add egg mixture. Cook over medium heat – DO NOT STIR – until mixture begins to set around sides and bottom. With spatula, lift and fold until uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes until mixture is glossy. Removed from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Serve with salsa, fruit.

    I’ve made this using regular eggs, parboiled potatoes diced real small and leftover ham.

    Southern Scramble
    6 servings

    This is truly a Southern dish with the grits. Try it. You might like it.

    1-1/2 cups water
    ½ cup quick grits, uncooked
    1 TBS butter/margarine
    4 oz shredded Swiss cheese
    6 eggs, beaten
    1 cup cubed ham
    2 TBS green onions
    ½ tsp salt
    Black pepper

    In large skillet, bring water to boil. Slowly stir in grits. Simmer 3-5 minutes (Note: I simmer about 10 minutes and add a bit more water if necessary) until thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in butter. Combine ½ cup cheese with remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour into grits, stir lightly. Do not over mix. Cook over medium heat until eggs are set and cheese melts, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

    Nina’s Egg Casserole

    I’ve never made this but it was delicious when Nina made it! Of course, everything she cooked was delicious. I don’t know how many it serves, but she brought it to work in a large pan.

    Preheat oven to 350º
    4 eggs
    1 cup flour
    1 ( 4 oz) can green chilis
    ¼ cup melted butter
    1 cup cottage cheese
    2 cups grated cheese – cheddar or Colby
    ¼ tsp salt

    Combine all, pour into greased pan. Bake 30-45 minutes.

    Well fed animals! I give my dog a boiled or scrambled egg most days along with his other stuff. Excellent source of protein.

    That last recipe - Nina's Egg Casserole was wonderful when she brought it to work one day. But like most really good cooks, she was just sort of..."well, throw in some of this, I don't know...about a cup of..."

    And since you're in Texas, you'll probably like the one with grits. There's an old and locally famous place in McKinney that serves something like the Southern Scramble. They serve it with a side of salsa.

    Nina's Casserole sounds delicious and the timing is perfect! I've been working on my menu for next week and am trying to incorporate an egg based dish once a week. Can't wait to try it!
