it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
i could write about all the reasons why that statement rings true.
or i could just show you… and by that, i mean with a mouth-watering photo of the yummiest breakfast ever (and a super sweet surprise at the end, so read on)…
or maybe it just seems that way because we eat it while relaxing around the Christmas tree, holiday music softly playing from Pandora and watching our daughters open their gifts.
as i thought about uploading the photo, i decided that i’d also share the recipe. you know, just in case you’d like to recreate the beautiful morning i described.
oh, and did i mention that you can make this ahead of time? throw in the coffee pot that has a timer and your Christmas morning just got better…no hassle or baking! and may i suggest cute Christmassy (yes, that IS a word… maybe…) paper plates as well? because, really, who wants to do dishes on Christmas?!
*1 prepared pie crust (didn’t i tell you it was super easy?!)
*1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
*1/2 cup shredded motzerella cheese
*1 Tbsp minced onion
*4 oz chopped deli ham
*salt & pepper to taste
*unroll one pack of the prepared pie dough (or double the batch and make two since you already have the dough) and place it in pie plate, crimping sides, if desired. or you can just wing it and call it a “rustic” look like i do. no one will judge…and if they do, they will apologize profusely after digging in. i promise. in a bowl, crack eggs and wisk in onion, salt and pepper. mix in cheese and ham. pour into pie crust. bake 375 F for 25-30 min. Let cool and serve!
i make this Christmas Eve and after it’s cool, i stick it in the fridge (if we can keep from eating some…. it smells heavenly!) until morning… then i just slice it and reheat it in the microwave in the morning. usually, we take a bite, open a gift…take a bite, give a gift… and so on.
i assure you, it will make your Christmas morning less stressful! and it is
embarrassingly easy! but…shhh… it’ll be our little secret, okay? okay.
but, wait!! there’s more… (I’ve always wanted to say that, by the way)
