I've had a busy weekend. One of the things on my list was to test a pin for the Pintester Movement. Which you can read about here: Pintester Movement I went through my Yummy Stuff board on Pinterest. I figured it would be the most rewarding board to make something from. I've made quite a few things already from different boards, mostly my Crochet one. With food, at least I could eat it after blogging about it. So I found this broccoli, ham, cheese, and egg bake from Kalyn's Kitchen. The picture's look super good and it had all things that I like, so I figured it'd have to be good. Plus the recipe directions were super simple.
Here's a picture of the website's finished product:
How good does that look?
So last night, about an hour before I was supposed to meet up with some girls from work, I started this. First off, I halved the recipe, because if it sucked, I didn't want to have to eat it all week. I gathered all my stuff:
I chopped the broccoli up first and realized how much like tiny little trees it looked:
And of course I had help:
Then diced up the ham steaks and steamed the broccoli (I had a good action shot of me dicing the ham but turns out my husband takes all pics upside down and I don't have time to figure out how to flip them in my phone camera folder):
The recipe doesn't say to steam the broccoli but I didn't even know how to do that until last night. Then I tossed it all in a pan and poured a bunch of eggs over it:
I also didn't measure anything...or spray the pan before putting anything in it. I did get the non-stick spray out but then didn't notice it again until I had already put it in the oven. Pintester forgets to spray stuff so I can forget to spray stuff.
I shoved it in the oven and waited. The recipe says half an hour but my oven isn't very smart so it takes a long time to cook stuff. I had to leave it to go meet my friends, making my husband promise to take it out in a few more minutes. I got home and it looked okay but I just plastic-wrapped it and in the fridge it went.
This afternoon I took a piece for lunch at work. It was very blah. Nothing special. Tasted kind of like ham and eggs with lots of broccoli. Maybe I should have measured the broccoli, instead of cutting up all of it and using all of it. So I guess it was a decent test, I'll keep eating it for breaks at work, but mostly because it's not Easy Mac.
Finished product, this afternoon after I took my lunch out:
