Play with Your Food

What do you dream about? Vacations on the Riviera? Living in an amazing mansion (with servants)? Flying?

I dream about food.

Last night my REM sleep hovered over breakfast casseroles and quiches. I love them both. And in my dream state I combined the two.

What makes this recipe work?

This recipe is very flexible and allows you to use whatever you have on hand.

  • Don't have Cheddar cheese? You could use Swiss, provolone, gouda, or a smoked cheese.
  • If you don't have or like sausage, you could substitute cooked crumbled bacon or ham, or veggie crumbles.
  • Don't have red bell pepper? What about sautéed sliced mushrooms or zucchini.
