I Guess it was Tasty . . .

. . . because we ate most of it! Christmas morning my mom made this baked egg casserole with three eggs (I've made it also for the bf; it's most decadent). I brought over my baked pineapple casserole. The bf and I were supposed to eat it for dessert with vanilla ice cream on Christmas Eve but were too stuffed from our too-large dinner. I apologize for taking the pictures after we dug in, but Christmas morning being what it is, it couldn't be avoided. Anyway, here are the recipes if you're interested. I think both of them came from one of the Hammonton Kessler Hospital cookbooks (Cooking on Call maybe? Not sure.)

Baked Eggs With Three Cheeses


7 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tsp sugar
1 lb shredded cheddar
4 oz cream cheese (cubed)
1 lb small curd cottage cheese
2/3 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder


Beat eggs, milk, and sugar. Add cheeses and melted butter and mix. Add flour and baking powder and pour into greased 9" x 9" Pyrex pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.

Baked Pineapple


1 large can crushed pineapple
1 cup sugar
2 tbs cornstarch
2 beaten eggs
3 slices bread torn into very small pieces
cinnamon (to taste - I use McCormick's cinnamon and sugar mix)
butter (to taste)


Mix crushed pineapple with sugar and cornstarch. Beat eggs and add to pineapple mixture. Mix in bread pieces. Place in greased 9" x 9" Pyrex dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon, dot with butter, and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until set.
