2 Small Chopped Onion
2 Cups Milk
4 Eggs
1/2 Cup Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
Other veggies and meats desired

Mix eggs, milk, flour, and baking powered together until well blended. Add meat, veggies, and cheese. Pour into a freezer bag and remove as much air as possible. Freeze flat.

To serve, thaw in the refrigerator. Mix until blended. Pour into a pie plate pre-covered with non-stick cooking spray or into a pie crust. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes and serve hot.

Customize this recipe. Make mushroom and broccoli quiche or spinach and chicken. The options are endless!

This recipe is from the In Good Cents archives. Thanks goes to my stepmom, Jacqui, for the idea of calling this tasty dish “Egg Pie”.

Ingredients
1/4 Cup Shortening
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs (Beaten)
4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
2/3 Cup Milk
1 1/2 Cups Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 Cup Cream Cheese
Sprinkles
First, cream the sugar and shortening together adding the sugar a little at a time and then add the beaten eggs. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and then add to the sugar mixture. Add milk, and then the raspberries. Mix well. Fill 12-18 greased muffin cups 2/3rds full.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Cool, then top each muffin with a dollop of cream cheese and cover in sprinkles. Refrigerate any remaining “cupcakes”.
Freezer Tip: Store muffins in a Ziploc bag and freeze for breakfast later!
Change It Up: Before cooking, place some raspberry jam in the center for a fun surprise. Or try topping with whip cream and top with a raspberry. You can also top with chopped nuts instead of sprinkles.

This recipes was inspired from a recipe in the In Good Cents archives.

Breakfast Burritos Recipe

by Beth Montgomery on August 27, 2009

in Breakfast Recipes, Frugal Cooking, Recipes

I think I’ve mentioned before that I love Mexican food! Any kind… from Taco Bell to Authentic Style. I could eat and enjoy any of it. Which is one reason I love camping trips with my Dad. The first morning at our site, he pulls out these HUGE and absolutely delicious breakfast burritos, then heats them up on the grill. You can make them at home and enjoy them at home, or enjoy them near an open fire!

INGREDIENTS
1 lb Ground Beef
1 Pkg Taco Seasoning
10 Eggs
1 Small Diced Onion (diced)
1 Small Diced Green Bell Pepper and/or Red Bell Pepper (diced)
12 Large Tortillas
1 Pkg Shredded Cheese (Mexican Blend or Cheddar)

Scramble eggs and in a separate pan cook ground beef with onions and green peppers until cooked thoroughly. Add taco seasoning to ground beef mixture as directed on package. While still warm, pile a generous helping of ground beef mixture, scrambled eggs, and cheese into a tortilla and fold up tightly.
Enjoy immediately or to take camping, wrap tightly in aluminum foil and keep cold. Toss on the grill in foil to heat before serving. Try serving with salsa and/or sour cream. To mix it up, add diced tomatoes or your favorite ingredients to this recipe!
