Melissa's Shower & Breakfast Casserole

Last weekend I had the privilege of helping host a shower for my buddy Melissa. She is having a girl. But she isn't revealing the name. Sigh. I don't know what has gotten into my friends but all this baby secretiveness is for the birds! Here we are...Jennifer, me, Melissa, Jenna, and Jill. (Just the hostesses--she had lots of guests.)
There was lots of yummy food! She got lots of cute cute cute....I am talking make-me-want-to-have-another-baby kind of cute stuff. Seriously--I got home and told Matt I had "the fever" (as in baby fever) and he told me that I better take some Tylenol!!! Ha! He is funny--part of the reason I married him.
I wish I could take credit for the decor but that was all done before I got there. My job was fruit kabobs and breakfast casserole.
The "baby mama" (ha!) requested that I put the breakfast casserole recipe on here....and what a pregnant woman wants...a pregnant woman gets! It is SUPER EASY!
  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • 6-8 slices of thickly sliced or grated pepper jack cheese (our wal-mart only has the thinly sliced so I just do two layers of cheese with it)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion or minced green onion (I omitted this)
  • 6 slices bacon (fried and crumbled)
  • salt and pepper

Separate and press dough in sprayed 9X13 pan. Press into bottom and 1 inch up the side of pan, sealing seams. Place cheese slices over the dough, sprinkle with bacon. In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, pour over cheese slices. Cover loosely with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Melissa also got all the hostesses beautiful picture frames as a hostess gift (which was totally unnecessary but sooo sweet and thoughtful). I just love it! If I wasn't completely rushed for time I would go take a picture of it and put it on here...maybe this week. Anyway, I had such a great time celebrating "baby sister" and can't wait to meet her!! (And find out what her actual name is. (c:)
