As I was browesing recipes for this type of casserole, every single choice had bread in it! I needed it to be gluten free and I really didn’t want to use bread. What is a cook to do in this situation? Create it myself.

AND…that’s what I did. With Easter and Mother’s Day just around the corner…ohh and Graduation season, this will be your go to. I promise.

  • 2 dozen eggs ( will feed 10-12 people)

  • 4 Tbs. butter

  • 1 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1 tsp salt



  • Beat eggs and cream in a large bowl, add salt

  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat

  • Pour eggs into skillet and cook. Stir frequently until eggs begin to set, but are still moist

  • Remove from skillet and place in a greased oven safe baking dish, 10 x 15

  • Stir in sour cream and sprinkle with cheese

  • Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight

  • When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 350°F

  • Uncover baking and place in oven, bake for 25-30 minutes, stiring gently, after 15 minutes

You can do this in batches, as to not overcrowd the skillet. Follow same directions, splitting all ingredients in half and going through the directions twice.
