I have experimented, and been quite successful with rice flour - especially with pizza bases....
If gas is not too much of an issue then this is delicious casserole that can be altered in many ways to change it from day to day. You may substitute bacon or sausage for the ham if you wish. Add peppers, onions, hash browns or anything else that suits your fancy.
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup croutons (not essential!)
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup cooked ham, cubed
- Melt butter in an 8x8 inch glass baking dish or small casserole dish. Add croutons and toss to coat. Sprinkle cheese on top of croutons. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk and dry mustard. Pour egg mixture over croutons and cheese. Sprinkle on cubed ham. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Let casserole stand at room temperature while oven heats.
- Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, until eggs are set. Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting. Can also be frozen and microwaved later.
APPLE BREAKFAST BREAD
Warm sweet apple bread is perfect for breakfast or for a snack. I have enjoyed this recipe many times.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 apples - peeled, cored and chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
- In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Mix into the butter mixture until moistened. Fold in the apples. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan.
- Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
....... the ideas are endless really - enchiladas, burritos, casseroles.... who says you have to have cereal for breakfast anyway!
