Wife Saver - need a new recipe

Postby Brenda N on Sat Dec 22, 2012 10:07 am

I am looking for a Wife Saver recipe...
There are tons online and I've seen the ones on KIV (basically the same as my Best of Bridge recipes)....but when I've had these at other people's houses they have been mushy or bland or just not very special. And perhaps just associated with some of my less favorite Christmas memories :-)

I want a super yummy version :-) Preferrably not made with white bread - in fact without bread slices at all would be best.
I have a vision of a breakfast enchilada....with bacon or smoked salmon or sausage - and maybe with some hashbrowns in them even.
Cream cheese if its smoked salmon, cheddar if its bacon....maybe gruyere for sausage :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now I'm trying to magically find a recipe that meets my vision - or some variation of my vision.
Anyone know what I mean - and have a recipe hanging about?

Those are great starters, thanks.

Here is another strata version with english muffins rather than bread that I am liking the looks of too. Good thing there are lots of mornings to get through this holiday season. :-)

It was divine, and even looked prettier with shrimp!

I'm trying a new recipe from Nigella Lawson this year - will let you know how it turned out! ;-)

Update: was very yummy! Next time I will grease the dish beforehand though, as it was baked onto the bottom very well! :shock: I added a package of cooked sausage meat to mine too, and next time would add a chopped bell pepper as well. :wink:
