(If you want to get really fancy you can stuff it with whatever you want... like cheese and mushrooms or sour cream by putting the ingredients on then folding it over.

YUM!! Next Cyburbia Lae Fest I can see we're going to have to have a cook-up. I'll make french toast and Nerudite can make hash browns for brunch the next morning :)

I haven't seen seasoned salt here. I know the fast food places use it though.

Yum indeed! I'm the queen of breakfast... I can make almost anything breakfast related but potatoes are my specialty: pan fried, cottage, hashbrowns... I'll load you all up on carbs!

I'll do the coffee! Press, stovetop espresso (w/fresh frothed milk), or drip? I make a pot every morning with fresh-ground beans from a local roaster. Much better (and cheaper) than chain-store coffee. ;-)

I guess I'll sign up to make the eggs. How about a ham, cheese, spinach and onion quiche?

Somebody want to bring begniets?

How about posting the recipe? Sounds really good.

I'll try, but this is a sort of "add things as you go" dish for me. The original recipe involved turkey, but I like ham better.

You need a pie crust of some sort. Home-made is good, but you can use a regular one. The objective is to use quantities of material that will ultimately fill the crust to about a cm to 0.5 cm from the top - it will rise some when it is cooked. Use about a cup of meat, 3-4 tablespoons of milk, six eggs and a cup of cheese. I have used different vegetables, but like spinach and onions the best. A bit less than a cup (chopped) of spinach and a half of a medium onion (chopped) is enough. Mix everything together and pour it into the crust. Bake it at 400 degrees F (204 Celsius or 477 Kelvin) until it is cooked through. Use a toothpick to poke the center and see that it comes out clean.

Like I said, there is no "scientific" recipe. Just wing it.
