More simple food to feed a family

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Had milk leftover from making potato soup so I decided to make a bacon, onion, cheddar, egg pie for supper. This is scaled down for 2 hearty meals and can easily be scaled to feed a crowd(I used to make this for deer camp when we had 20+ to feed in the cabin).

 

12 oz bacon, cut in bite size pieces and fried until crisp. Reserve the fat

4 eggs

cup or so of milk

4oz grated cheddar

Bisquick or other biscuit mix

1/2 medium onion grated

S&P to taste, I used 1 teaspoon salt and a LOT of black pepper

 

Preheat oven to 375f. Beat the eggs then add the milk and mix in. Add Bisquick until it is like a thin pancake batter, if you get it to thick just add a little more milk. Add the onions and 2/3 the cheese and mix well. Pour a tablespoon or so of the bacon fat into the baking dish, add the fried bacon, then pour the batter mix over the top. Sprinkle the other 1/3 of the cheese on top and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

 

This is not a meal I make often, it is very filling and also a LOT of calories!

 

 

Yes this is on my best paper plate! I was lazy and not doing dishes tonight!

Snowing like a banshee today and that looks delicious for this weather.  Sounds perfect for pot luck - Thanks MaryB  :thumb: 

 

The spanakopita I made yesterday is easy too and dare I say it?  Bacon could be added for an extra "kick it up a notch".

It's also the proven "Gateway Meat" for vegetarians who trickle back to the "dark side".

Haha! This reminds me of a conversation I had with my mother once when I was a kid. I said "when I grow up I'm going to put pepperoni in the pasticchio" to which my mother said "no you won't, you'll make it this way." She was right, I never did ever from the traditional not do I ever want to.

No judgments though! I'm not a stickler for authentic anything. I think bacon works with everything!
