                                                         Honey Baked French Toast

  4 eggs                           4 Tbsp. honey, divided
  1 1/4 c. milk                  1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  3 Tbsp. brown sugar    2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Grease 9x13 pan. In medium bowl, combine eggs, 2 T. honey, cinnamon and milk. Dip bread slices into egg mixture. Arrange bread in three rows overlapping slightly. Pour any remaining egg mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, sprinkle with brown sugar and drizzle with melted butter and honey. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve with your favorite syrup.

We originally found this recipe years ago in an old Farm Journal magazine and has become a guest favorite and our most requested.

                                                Veggie-Loaded Breakfast Casserole

 2 T. Oil                                     8-10 mushrooms, sliced
 2 tsp. minced garlic                  1/2 red onion, diced
 2 bell peppers, diced (I used the small multi-colored peppers for more color)              
 2 cups baby spinach, roughly chopped
 20 oz. shredded hash browns, thawed
 10 eggs                                     1/3 cup half & half or milk
 1/4 cup hot sauce (I didn't use this much, so use per taste)
 Salt & pepper                           1 cup shredded cheese, I use a cheese blend

 (1) In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 T. of oil. Add the mushrooms and saute them for 4   minutes or until they start to brown. Add a small pinch of salt along with the onions and garlic and let cook for 2 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add the second T. of oil, if needed, and saute the peppers for 1 minute. Add the baby spinach and allow it to wilt, remove from heat and set aside.
 (2) Generously spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Lay the shredded potatoes in the bottom of the dish, make sure they spread out evenly. Top with all the veggies and set aside.
 (3) Preheat oven to 375 degrees, if you are baking the casserole immediately.
 (4) In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, hot sauce and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the prepared veggies. Sprinkle the cheese over the top (I usually wait and add the cheese after the eggs are set to prevent it from getting too brown) and another pinch of salt and pepper. At this point you can cover this and put in refrigerator overnight and bake in the morning remembering to take it out 30 minutes before baking.
 (5) Bake the casserole, uncovered, until the eggs are set and the cheese melts and gets golden, 45-50 minutes. Allow the casserole to cool 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with salsa and/or additional hot sauce.
 Serves 6-8
