Recipe type: Easy Breakfast
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 12 large eggs
  • Mini potatoes (12) or 6 medium to large potatoes that you prefer
  • ¼ tsp of salt and pepper
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh or Dried Rosemary (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. If you are using baby potatoes as I did wash them and scrub any dirt off.
  3. Slice each potato into ¼ inch and put them on a baking sheet or into a baking pan
  4. Add ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil or enough to coat the potatoes well.
  5. Toss a sprig of fresh Rosemary (produce section at the grocery store, dried or fresh from the garden)
  6. Note: If you use fresh Rosemary don't forget to remove it before you add the eggs.
  7. Add the salt and pepper
  8. Mix the potatoes around and baked them until golden in a 300-degree oven for approximately 40 minutes.
  9. I flip the potatoes at the half-way mark to them being baked.
  10. Remove the baking sheet and let them cool for 5 minutes moving the potatoes around so they are flat.
  11. If the family is involved and someone doesn't want potatoes just keep a section plain with just eggs.
  12. Add the big bowl of eggs right over the baked potatoes so they are covering each potato.
  13. This is where the kids can come in and add whatever ingredients they like to their section.
  14. Have them do it quickly by preparing ahead of time what each child wants in their section.
  15. Bake at 350 until the eggs are fluffy and cooked through 10-15 minutes depending on your oven and pan.
  16. Remove from the oven and let the casserole relax for 5 minutes.
  17. Cut into squares and serve on its own or with a big dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese.
  18. Add whatever you like or leave it plain as I did.
