Just a minute out of prep day to show you our breakfast casseroles we made today. I made a casserole which is not in the e-book, but is similar to the Three Little Pigs Casserole. Today's choice features the smokey flavors my guys crave at breakfast time. It is loaded with bacon, ham and even a bit of extra hickory flavoring. Yum.

Fry bacon. Crumble when cool. Place a bit of bacon grease in the bottom of two casserole dishes, and divide the bacon crumbles between them. Distribute the ham cubes and the cheese over the bacon. In a large bowl, combine eggs, softened cream cheese, cream, mustard and spices. Blend well with a hand mixer. Gently pour the egg mixture over the meats. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until set. Store one casserole for breakfasts this week and wrap the other well for the freezer.
I'm also using ham for our Triple Play meals this week. That super cool little baking stone I bought is also proving to do great things with those Pick a Flavor Cookies. Now I have a few more things to do in the kitchen...
