Ingredients

  • 2 Cups sandwich bread, diced
  • 10 Ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Cup cream
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 whole potatoes, peeled and sliced very thin
  • 1 Cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 Cup thinly sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 white sweet onion, sliced very thin

Directions

Grease a 9 by 13 glass casserole dish with butter or oil and place the diced bread on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top of the bread, and then follow with layers of potato, onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Mix the eggs, cream, milk, salt, garlic flakes, and smoked paprika in a blender until well incorporated. Pour the mixture on top of the vegetables and let soak for at least 1 hour.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
