I wanted to thin out some of my cookbook collection so I decided to place some of my favorite recipes here. This is from the Amish Friends cookbook. A nice change of pace for breakfast. This recipe contains bread, eggs and cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 -8 slices bread, tore into bite size pieces
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • 6 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 -2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a 9-inch square pan, break up enough bread to cover bottom of pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Break eggs over bread and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Break up more bread and spread on top of eggs. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons butter and top with shredded cheese.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until eggs are done.

When asked by the kids what I was making for lunch today, I told them "Hidden Eggs". That seemed to peek their interest, so they all came to the kitchen to see exactly what it was I was doing. They saw me pulling apart a loaf of French bread into tiny little pieces and seemed fine with it. However when I cracked the eggs over the butter drizzled bread all 4 exclaimed they were not going to eat it. We have a rule in our house you either eat what is fixed or go they all planned on tightening their belts until dinner time. As I topped the dish with pepper jack cheese (That's all I had on hand) my son decided he might try it. Once it was baking in the oven and the smells began wafting through the house they all decided they should give the dish a chance. I made enough to fill a 9"x13" pan, and there were no leftovers! All four kids had seconds, and they asked if I would make this again soon. I'm planning on making this again next week! Thanks for the keeper Crafty Lady. Made and reviewed for the 54th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

I thought this was very good! I used up a small baked potato that I had in the fridge, chopped it up and threw it in, along with 1/2 a green onion. I also scaled the recipe in 1/2 and put it in a small glass loaf pan to bake. It took about 30 minutes to cook through, but I suspect it took longer due to the cold potato I threw in cooling the whole thing down. Very good, sprinkled some garlic powder on it and we enjoyed it very much for brunch. Thanks for posting! made for Aussie Swap :)

This made for a lovely simple brekky to make. I like Jewelies, buttered my bread . I also added some chopped bacon & chives along with the cheese. My eggs did stick to the bowl a little, must grease the bowl if spreading the butter rather than drizzling. Thanks!
