Easy Week in Menu Planning

This week’s menu will host several of the family favorites that are EASY for me to prepare.


Spiral-sliced Ham with hashbrown casserole (Lola’s favorite) and greenbeans.  I’m also going to “whip up” an apple dessert in the crock pot.  (Two cans of apple pie filling, a good layer of oatmeal, brown sugar and pecans and top with several pts of butter.  Put the lid on it and cook it for a couple of hours.  Serve with vanilla ice cream)


We have promised the kids we will go to BOMBAY for Indian food…so I”m not cooking :-)


Big ol’ pot of chili and some baked potatoes.  They can top with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. 




Swedish Meatballs with Noodles and broccoli.  (This was another Lola request.) 


OH – And early this morning a friend of mine posted a breakfast casserole recipe on facebook and it looked delicious!  So I decided to use the ham from Monday and try it out!  Doesn’t it look yummy?


Here is the recipe!!!!

Biscuit Breakfast Bake
10 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 16 oz refrigerated breakfast biscuits 10 count (I used the Pillsbury flaky kind .. I've also used 2, 8 count croissant rolls and 2, 8 count grands country biscuits ***DO NOT COOK FIRST***
4 scallions (green onions, spring onions, whatever you prefer to call them)
2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

If you’re into the meats – cooked center cut bacon or cooked sausage, ham, turkey sausage/bacon (5-6 slices bacon, cooked n chopped ... 6 breakfast sausages, cooked and chopped ... 1 cup diced cooked ham)
Large baking casserole dish, sprayed with cooking spray (Note: I think a 9×13 works best, but it might need to bake a little longer)

1. Mix your eggs and milk in a large bowl. Cut each biscuit (I’m all about scissors in the kitchen) into fours and add it to the bowl. I like to do this before I cook the bacon or cut up the scallions – give the biscuits some time to really soak in the eggs. *when I use croissants I just roll as per regular instructions and don't cut them.
2. Cut up your green onions/scallions, shred your cheese, cook and break up your bacon (or sausage). Add everything to the bowl. Add only half the cheese, use rest for the top.
3. Mix it all up and pour into your pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes .. closer to 30 so it isn't runny
