two favourite time saver meals for the holidays

I make these every year and they can be made well in advance and frozen if you want.

Wife saver Christmas morning breakfast casserole

Ingredients:
8 slices Bread
8 slices Ham
8 slices Cheese
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter

Directions:
Remove crust from bread. Put bread into a greased 9x9 pan. Cover bread with ham, then with cheese. Put rest of bread on cheese. Mix eggs and milk together. Pour milk and egg mixture over the bread, ham, and cheese in pan. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pour melted butter over the ingredients in the pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Let sit ten minutes before serving.


Another favourite is Shipwreck Pie (casserole), can be made ahead and frozen. It's great after a day out trying out the new Christmas skates, skis or snowmobile or just the trick after a hard day at the mall for those after Christmas sales.


1 can tomato soup
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
2 large onions
1 cup chopped celery
2 - 3 large potatoes
1 cup chopped carrots
1 can water (tomato soup can)
1 cup of shredded cheese ( I like using the Italian 4 cheese combo)

How to make it

Peel and slice potatoes and carrots and set aside.

In large casserole dish layer from bottom in following order potatoes, sliced onions, carrots, celery, uncooked rice, packed ground beef
in bowl mix tomato soup and water and pour over layers
season to taste with salt and pepper.

Bake at 350 F till well done, about 1 1/2 hours

I used to make my Christmas sugar cookies from scratch and roll them out and cut them with my fancy cookie cutters. It was too much work and it made me really crabby.

I found that Pillbury sugar cookie dough tastes almost exactly like my homemade cookies, so for the last few years, when I still made cookies, I just sliced them off the roll, baked them and decorated them with colored icing and red and green sugar sprinkles.

They taste good, they look good, and I'm not exhausted and crabby when I'm done with them.

If you don't want anyone to know you were being lazy, just say that all your cookie cutters are in the shape of suns, moons, snowballs and round Christmas ornaments.

And don't forget to have Mom's sugar cookie recipe handy in case someone asks how you made them.

Oh, sorry. I didn't see the "meals".

*Is embarrassed*.

Although, I have been known to make a meal of cookies.
