Today's frugal breakfast might possibly not be all that sensory friendly to a lot of kids with sensory issues, but it is the only way I have gotten my Bean to eat eggs, which is a big deal to me! I love quiche. I eat it almost everyday. It's quick to put together, but takes a little while to bake. I can put almost any odd and end leftover vegetable in there, and it tastes great. Got a tablespoon, or 3 of tomatoes, green chiles, green peppers, green beans, carrots, cabbage, squash, bacon, ham, sausage.(and so many more) leftover? Save it for breakfast. Sometimes, when I have just a small amount of any of those foods I put them into a sandwich bag, label, it and freeze it. Works for quick soups, or quiche.
Here is my basic recipe that I have adapted:
*Cheese- 1/4 cup -however much you want. I find grated works best
*3/4 cup milk
* 1/4 flour- pancake or biscuit mix is best, but flour will do
* 1 tbps. butter
First, heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a pie pan with non-stick cooking spray. Then toss the cheese on the bottom of the pan.
Then mix together the eggs, milk, melted butter, and flour. Put any chopped veggies, and meat you might want to add, as well as any seasoning. I like onion, and garlic salt, but that's just me. The one thing I noticed is that it seems to taste salty easily for some reason, so you may want to take it easy with any seasoning containing salt the first time you make it.
Pour it into the pan, and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
You can make it ahead of time, then bake first thing in the morning if you prefer. This recipe easily feeds two adults, and could be stretched to 3 if served with toast, or something else.
My Beans just loves it up. For about the price of less than $2 to make it, I'd say it's a very frugal, nutritious breakfast.
