Favorite breakfast: Breakfast Casserole for Two

I suppose with nothing to do at work until my bleeping books come in so I can do two weeks worth of homework, I should post something a little happier than my attitude towards being late on my homework,'re welcome!
I found this recipe from a blog one of Kyle’s relatives co-authors. I eat a lot of randomness for breakfast (has included nutella sandwiches, soup, and cold catfish), but I don’t think my husband would be overly thrilled by my, ahem, odd breakfast choices. Therefore, I’ve been trying to branch out since most days we eat breakfast together now.

This particular breakfast was Ah-MAZ-ing! I thought it was pretty good, but Kyle LOOOVVVEEEDDD it. I cannot stress how much he loved it. He asked me at least three times that morning after breakfast, “So…is this something easy to make? Could we have this on a regular basis? Like tomorrow?” (And, yes, folks, I did make it the following day and made it again this morning.) Not only is it easy, but while it bakes, I have time to get ready for work, and by the time they’re done, he’s up, and I’m ready to eat.
I also love this recipe because we usually have a majority – if not all – of the ingredients on hand. I’ve even used deli ham cut up because I’m not a big fan of cubed ham, and he doesn’t like breakfast sausage. And, believe it or not, deli ham works beautifully.
The recipe said this only made eight little breakfast casseroles, but I’ve made eight each time. Oh, and, yes, the two of us can put eight down in record time. So if you have a family of more than two, you might want to double (triple?) the recipe.
Breakfast casserole for two
3 slices of bread cubed
3 eggs
4-5 tbs milk
1/2 cup cooked ham diced (or breakfast sausage)
2 dash of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp dry mustard (NOTE: I did not use dry mustard at any point, and it was delicious)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients (minus the bread) and mix well.  Place a few cubes of bread in each muffin cup. Evenly distribute the rest of the ingredients. Muffin cups will be at least 3/4 full. Bake on 350 for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm. 
Easy peasy. And mouth-watering.

Yep. Cold catfish, before I got married, was just about a breakfast staple in our house, lol.
