The Recipe Box # 3 - My Lunch Project

I am a bit scared that I am in hot water. As you know, I started my Lunch Project to avoid falling into the rut of just grabbing something, for a major meal, lunch. Yesterday was a great success and I enjoyed my tomato dish. Today, I had an even more enjoyable dish, which I will share with you, but this one is not as healthy. I am weighing it out in my mind, one piece of bread without crust, 1/2 cup cheese, onion, 1 potato, 2 eggs, 1 slice of lox and a little milk. Tell me, it is not sinful. Absolutely no additional fat, noting the word additional, and no additional salt, again that word, was included. What if I do this, everyday?

I guess, I will just have to look into our Recipe Box and find some healthy recipes to make but I still want some indulgent ones for those days I NEED to indulge myself, yeah sure. Please leave both, some to give me comfort and some to keep me healthy. You are the greatest.

Since I eat only kosher food, I can't have milk and meat at the same meal, and certainly not, in the same dish. That is the reason, I subbed in the smoked salmon.)

Now here is my decadent lunch.

Cheesy Luncheon Treat (I cut this recipe down for one person. This is for 4.)


· 5 medium potatoes, shredded fine (I shredded the potato right into the casserole.)

· 1 slice of lox (smoked Salmon) (the original recipe use a lot of sausage)(For 4 people, I suggest, 4 slices.)

· 4 slices day-old white bread, cubed small

· 6 large eggs

· 1 small onion, diced

· 3/4 cup milk

· 2 -3 cups shredded cheddar cheese


 Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel & finely shred potatoes.

Spray 9X13 glass pan with cooking spray.

Working in layers, start with the potatoes, press evenly in bottom of pan & sprinkle with 1/4 of the cheese.

Next add the onion evenly across first layer & sprinkle with 1/4 cheese.

Place bread cubes evenly across the onion layer & sprinkle with 1/4 cheese.

In med bowl mix scramble the eggs with the milk.

Pour mixture evenly over bread layer & press lightly with spatula to help soak bread.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake uncovered 35 minutes or until firm in 350 degree oven.

I had to cover it for the last fifteen minutes. The photo of the full casserole was taken 15 minutes before it completely cooked.

I covered it and put it back in the oven to bake more.

Now, the fun part. Let's look at our Recipe Box and see what stunning recipes, we have, to share. I should add stunning and delicious. I have been pinning all the featured recipes and plan to continue. I hope you get traffic from this.

Thanks to those of you who gave me suggestions for selecting the features. I am going to start off this way. I will share the most popular (most clicks) with you and then pick out some recipes, I think you would love. I can't pick a personal favorite since I always have more of those than I could possibly feature. We have amazing cooks here. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

Mrs. Fox has done it again with this Quinoa Salad. I am not sure if I was sold because of the quinoa or the avocado.
