Breakfast Casserole

Here is the breakfast casserole we made at the Girls Getaway this year. It is super easy! I just used cheddar cheese instead of pepper jack.

"Ham, green onions, and hash browns baked with spicy pepperjack cheese make up this easy make-ahead breakfast dish."
3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
3/4 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
1 cup cooked ham, diced
1/4 cup chopped green onions
4 eggs, beaten
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart baking dish.
2.Arrange hash brown potatoes evenly in the bottom of the prepared dish. Sprinkle with pepperjack cheese, ham, and green onions.
3.In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, evaporated milk, pepper, and salt. Pour the egg mixture over the potato mixture in the dish. The dish may be covered and refrigerated at this point for several hours or overnight.
4.Bake for 40 to 45 minutes (or 55 to 60 minutes if made ahead and chilled) in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Zucchini Muffins

Here is the recipe that I made for the Girls Getaway this year. I am going to try it with substituting applesauce for the oil and I'll let you know how it turns out.

2 c. peeled, grated zucchini (I use my food processor to grate it - easy!)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. oil
2 c. sugar
3 c. flour

Mix all ingredients except sugar and flour in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add each cup of sugar slowly to blender (while blending) IF your blender is big enough to fit both cups. If not, pour blended mixture into a large bowl and add each cup of sugar - mix well. Then add flour and mix well. Pour into muffins tins, filling 2/3rds of the way. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min. (makes about 24 muffins)
