I Forgot....

Yesterday morning, our Friday Friends Bible Study resumed after the Holiday break.  I can't tell you how happy I was that we were meeting again!  Missed this time with my dear friends.

As the co-leader of the study, about a week ago I sent out an email reminder for the study.  I suggested that we start off with a time of fellowship and a breakfast potluck.  Remember that fact.  Everyone like that idea, so fun and food was the plan.

Fast forward to Friday morning.  I get up and begin preparing for the day, when I suddenly remember, POTLUCK!  Great.  It is 6:30 am & I need to be on the road by 8:45 am.  No time to go to the grocery.  (I live way out of town.) What do I have in the house?  Can I prepare something edible?  I need to make something that has protein, so that I'm sure we don't have only fruit & muffins.

To the pantry & fridge I go....

8 eggs, 4 slices of bacon, half a package of cheese, is not enough for a regular size frittatas.

Ah, but I do have my silicone baking form that will create individual, smaller frittatas.

Whip up those eggs with some Italian seasoning.  Since I was out of milk, I also added some sour cream.

Layer the cooked bacon in the mold.

Top with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese.

Ladle in the egg mixture. (Barely had enough.)

Bake for 25 minutes at 375 deg.

Ta Dah!  "Breakfast Bites" are born!

Can you believe I forgot my own potluck?  Ugh.  Here's the real kicker, when I arrived at Bible study, there were 3 other egg dishes. LOL!  DO you ever do that kind of stuff?


  1. Hi Chris!
    I think you must be a genius to come up with that so quick!! I cant remember if I've forgotten anything... wait, that sounds pitiful doesn't it? I'm sure I have! I've got to get one of those silicon things you have, my Granddaughters would even like your breakfast bites. I wonder if you could use a cupcake pan if you sprayed it??

    Have a great weekend! Blessings & hugs, Sherry

    PS LOVE that "Tea Sandwich" on your previous post... looks fabulous and must be delicious.

  2. Those looked really delicious! It is encouraging to see people move more to protein than sugary, floury stuff. Great group there!!!

  3. I was just thinking how amazing your cookery skills were in a pinch, and then the last lines had me in stitches! Talk about Murphy's Law!!!!! YES, WE ALL DO THAT NOW AND THEN I ASSURE YOU.

    Loved it all.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
