|Egg and ham casseroule|
Sometimes, a great meal just slips away through stupidity!
Case in point. I had a day off today to honor our nation's veterans. Which means there was no rushing about from the office to home to get a meal on the table, lickity split. Plenty of time, no worries.
We still have a boat load of ham to eat...so I decided to prepare a recipe from http://www.lanascooking.com/ called Ham and Cheese Strata. It's now T-60 minutes until the designated dinner hour. Bread, eggs, cheese, milk, ham...easy. First mistake. I use a pan that is too small. - it seems that 9X9 means just that, not 7X11 so there was bit of spillage. OK, moving on. As I'm layering the eggs, bread, cheese etc and get to the end, I read, let sit for 3 hours or over night. It's now less than T-60, so I don't have 5 minutes let alone 3 hours or overnight to let pan sit. Stick in oven anyway.
Reread recipe and realize that this casserole needs to bake for 1 HOUR! hello! What sort of casserole needs to bake for one whole freaking hour....take a deep breath, nobody is dying or hungry. Proceed.

And I substituted whole wheat for white bread. The results were OK but I wouldn't bother with this again. even though the marginal results were my fault...I would rather have an egg on toast...too much trouble.
