Christmas Breakfast Casserole
Serving Size : 6
1 pound ground pork
1 small onion — chopped
1 clove garlic — minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon crushed hot red pepper
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups Italian or French bread — cut into 1″ cubes
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1. In a large skillet, cook ground pork, onion, and garlic over medium-high
heat, stirring often to break up meat, until pork loses its pink color, about
5 minutes. Stir in 3/4 teaspoon salt, Italian seasoning, and hot red pepper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt,
and black pepper.
3. In a lightly buttered 9 x 13 inch baking dish, spread 2 cups bread cubes.
Cover with pork mixture. Spread remaining 2 cups bread cubes over pork
mixture, then sprinkle on Cheddar cheese. Pour egg mixture over all, cover
with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
4. Bake in a 350 degree oven until egg mixture is set and top is browned, 50
to 60 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.
Christmas Roast Beef
1 (5 lb.) beef sirloin tip roast
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Cracked black pepper
Granulated garlic powder
Fresh or dried rosemary
Preheat oven 425º F.
Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour before cooking. Rub roast with a generous amount of olive oil and then sprinkle Montreal Steak Seasoning, cracked pepper, garlic powder, rubbing into the roast. Sprinkle fresh or dried rosemary on top of roast.
Place a rack in a 9″ x 13″ baking dish and then place roast on rack. Do not cover this roast. Bake for 1 hour at 425º F. Do not open oven. At the end of 1 hour, turn oven off and let the roast remain in the oven with the door closed at all times for 2 hours.
Just before serving preheat the oven to 300º F., for about 20 to 30 minutes. Roast will be a perfect medium rare and so tender you can cut it with a fork. If a less rare roast is desired, the temperature should remain the same, but the final reheating time may be increased by 20 to 30 minutes.
