I love this recipe because you make it ahead then just pop it in the oven. It is also easily changed, I have omitted the meat and done all veggies (onion, peppers, whatever you like, just saute them first) or I do a combo of meat and veg. You can also cut down on the fat by using egg beaters instead of whole eggs if you want. I believe I got this recipe from Epicurious.com

CHEESE AND SAUSAGE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

8 white bread slices, cut into cubes
1 pound bulk pork sausage, crumbled and cooked
1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar
10 large eggs
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper

Grease 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Place bread in prepared dish. Top with sausage and cheese. Beat together eggs and next three ingredients. Season with pepper. Pour over sausage mixture. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Chill.)

Preheat oven to 350F. Bake casserole until puffed and center is set, about 50 minutes. Cut into squares.

Serves 8 to 10.

Default School snack

Hi all, next week is my son's 6 birthday and it is his day to bring the snack to school. I would like to take something different. It can't be to messy. He loves trains. Does anyone have something that would be a little different than cupcakes.

i just found a recipe for "pudding pops"
you take a cupcake tin and put the little paper cups in.
mix i pk of vanilla or chocolate pudding, 2 cups of cold milk, and 1/2 cup of peanut butter--although i would skip the PB
stick the popsicle sticks in and freeze for 4 hours.
they dont "melt" per se'. so they are not too messy, but nice and cold

How about train-shaped sandwiches or cheesy pastry shapes cut with cookie cutters?
Train Engine Cookie Cutter

Maybe a new Thomas the Tank Engine lunchbox set too?

you should definitely find out what your school policy is on treats. many have rules about allowing "homemade" goodies. most want only store-bought items. also, they have a lot of Nut free zones! It would be awful to plan, and fix a cute treat and have the teachers tell you that you can't pass it out!!!!! I would hate to hear those six-year olds crying.

Default School snack ideas? Anyone? Anyone?

I'd like any ideas you have for individual servings of snacks to send in. I got spoiled last year when her teacher had each kid bring in a snack for the class to share.

My daughter doesn't like hummus, cream cheese. So no pita chips and hummus, or bagels and cream cheese. She likes a lot of other things though, so please, toss them out there for me!

The students have to bring in snacks for the entire class to share?? Is this a one-time project? I would bring a 3 pound bag or apples or oranges and let the teacher slice them up.

My son had to bring snacks for the entire class last year.
I used to buy the individual wrapped cheese and crackers, or a box with 16 count of a variety like mini oreos, nutter butter bites, and chips ahoy.
One time, I bought a huge box of goldfish crackers.
