Cheesy Egg Casserole

Cheesy Egg Casserole

Since my husband is diabetic, I am always in search of foods he can eat and are really good.  I think that I have found one here, we love it.  Recipe follows:

2 slices white bread, cubed

1/2 cup liquid egg substitute (I use Egg Beaters)

1/2 cup fat-free evaporated milk

1/2 cup reduced-fat finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 cup or so Mushrooms (I bought the ones in the jar)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.  Arrange Bread cubes in baking        dish.

2.  In a medium bowl, combine egg substitute, evaporated milk, 1/4 cup cheese, onion powder and mushrooms.

3.  Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, pushing cubes down into liquid.  Let stand about 5 minutes and push cubes into            liquid again, making sure the bread is well coated.

4.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

5.  Cover and bake 15 minutes.  Remove cover and bake 10 additional minutes, or until golden brown and knife inserted in        center comes out clean.  Serve Immediately.

To Everything A Season by Lauraine Snelling

To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling

This book was supplied to me by Bethany House Publishers to Read and in return give a Review.


Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community. With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing. Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons–especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.

Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse. She’s been promised a position in the Chicago women’s hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother. Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing. And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone.

When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return? If not, will it mean losing Trygve–and her chance at love–for good?

My Review

This is the first book in “Song of Blessing” Series by Lauraine Snelling.  I love all her books.  I have read every single one of the books about Blessing, North Dakota and will read more of these books.  In fact, I can’t wait until the next one comes out.

The book starts in Blessing, North Dakota in 1905.  Haaken Bjorklund is up in years and older than he has been getting slower every day.  Ingeborg is really worried about him.  But she can’t be with him all the time, but she has a feeling that things are not right.  She feels this again when she is visiting her daughter and of course he won’t see a doctor because he’s a man.  Hehe.  I understand how that is.

As the story goes, there are so many things that happen in the town of Blessing, from a bank robbery that went awry.  Everyone joins together as always, and they catch the bank robbers.  One of the robbers, Manny is injured and is in the hospital in Blessing and Dr. Astrid Bjorklund Jeffers has to fix his leg and she does.  Manny is deserted by his brothers because they are in jail, but the sheriff said that Manny didn’t know what was going on, since he was only 12.  So, he does not go to jail.  In the meantime, Manny goes to live with Ingeborg and Haaken which is the best thing for Haaken.

In the meantime, Trygve Knutson decides to stay around home for a while, helping out his family and his uncle Haaken.  In the meantime, there are some nurses that come to; Blessing for training and he finds he has fallen for one of them.

I am not going to say anything else at this time or I will ruin the story for you.  This is such a GREAT story and I do hope you will pick up this book and get lost in the year 1905 as much as I did.  I always feel like I am there in the midst of everything.

Thank you Lauraine Snelling for giving us such a GREAT book, actually another GREAT book of Blessing, North Dakota.  Thank you Bethany House for giving me this book so I could read an give this review in return.
