concept cooking

The other day, I thought I had hash browns in the freezer for the breakfast casserole on deck for dinner.  Turns out, I had to substitute with the only frozen potato forms available…5 tater-tots & 8 french fries.  Being a recipe geek, a mild panic crept in that dinner was going to flop.  Until, I shared with chef hubbie my wariness, to which he replied, “Breakfast casserole is a concept.  It will be fine.”. 

Light-bulb moment. 

How true!  And so many other meals are mere concepts ready for adaptation.

  • pizza
  • practically anything Mexican
  • stuffed pepper – pick your pepper, starch, protein, veg, go!
  • sandwiches
  • meatloaf, meatballs or burgers
  • pasta salad
  • casseroles!

egg eaters

Try this Mini Frittatas recipe (October Family Circle) with left-overs:

12 cup muffin tin (spray with non-stick), 3 cups cooked meat & veg, shredded cheddar, 8 beaten eggs with salt & pepper – layer as listed & bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Combo above:  cooked crumbled italian sausage, roasted cauliflower, sage, onion.  Other thoughts:

  • bacon, tomato (seeds out unless you dig soggy), onion
  • breakfast sausage, peppers, mushrooms
  • broccoli, potatoes
  • serving size is perfect, freeze for a quick meal anytime or on the go, great way to use left-overs
