Every Easter, we’d get up at the crack of dawn and dress fancy. Since mom was the choir director at church, we had to be there early early. While it felt too early to eat breakfast (you know how your stomach feels kind of sour when you’re up before dawn?), we managed a couple chocolate eggs or jelly beans. That Easter bunny was so smart – he would put our Easter baskets right in our carseats! =)

After church, we’d head to the fellowship hall for Easter brunch. In our later years, we were the ones to make and serve it. And it was always a similar menu – muffins, fruit cocktail, coffee, orange juice, and egg bake. Over the years I’ve had me many an egg bake. As a church youth director, I made the requisite egg bake each Easter for the youth brunch. Then serving on a church committee, we perfected the recipe and made it for the vendors & visitors at our church holiday craft sale. And now, I have another recipe to add to the pile. The difference? This one is made in one pan. Score!

Ham & Potato Skillet Supper

from 101 Stovetop Suppers,
by Gooseberry Patch

4-1/2 tsp. butter
3 baking potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
2 c. cooked ham, diced
salt & pepper to taste
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Layer half each of the potatoes, onion, green pepper and ham in skillet. Repeat layers; season with s&p. Cover and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Pour eggs over potato mixture; cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until eggs are almost set. Sprinkle cheese over all. Remove from heat; cover and let stand until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges to serve. Serves 6.

The brand new Gooseberry Patch cookbook 101 Stovetop Suppers is chock full of one-pan meals. I also really appreciate that there are many recipes that don’t use condensed soups or processed ingredients (this one is a good example. Easy to customize for your needs and tastes).
