All Those Who Don't Care about Cholesterol..

And those would be the hands of my three boys raised in the air! This afternoon, all five of us were in one room when my youngest asked what we were going to have for dinner tomorrow. His response to ham was, "But we always have ham on Easter!" #1 and #2 razzed him pretty good on that one. Then #1 asked about French toast casserole for tomorrow and I told them that I wasn't planning on it, since I was dieting. The following occured:
#1 - "All those not on a diet, raise your hand!" Everyone but me raises their hand.
Me - " Well I was thinking about the cholesterol in it."
#1- "All those who don't care about their cholesterol, raise your hand."
Everyone but me raises their hand.
Me-" You know, there's a lot of sugar in it and I am not sure you guys need sugar."
" Last night I drank coke all night for so-so's school project, so doesn't matter to me."
#1- "All those who don't care about sugar, raise your hand."
Everyone but me raises their hand.
So how bad/good is this casserole? It's awesome! Even better as a leftover, if there are any. Happy Easter all!

  1. Sounds gooey good.

  2. That was just the perfect post.

  3. LOL! My heart hurts! Eh, who am I to say? I had bacon for breakfast and we're grilling ham steaks for dinner. I say grilling with great optimism, as it is roughly 20 degrees and snowing here today. :)

  4. That sounds like it would be great! Add a side of bacon & it's perfect....

  5. That sounds yummy and I say you don't even need the bacon accompaniment. BTW, how was it?

  6. That sounds like a nice Sunday treat. Did you cave in and make it for them after all?

    We ended up having waffles and whipped cream and bacon. Also a heart attack on a plate...but what the heck it's Easter!

    Happy Easter

  7. Yes, I did make it for the family, but cut up strawberries to go along with it. I made it from memory and forgot 1/2 stick of butter. Still tasted great!

    It's a wonderful recipe for brunches.

  8. Sounds yummy to me! :)
