Sursee Gal’s Test Kitchen // Lady Di’s Egg Casserole

Lady Di egg casserole-2


Y’all this is it.  The best of the best. A great egg casserole recipe to have on hand for breakfast or for a party.  It is a great recipe to cut in half, too.  Or, you can make the whole recipe and use custard cups to make individual portions and freeze them after baking and cooling.

This is an amazing egg casserole to serve at a special shower for a bride or a mom-to-be; it is a casserole that everyone who samples- loves.

It will soon become your go-to recipe for breakfast, the most important meal of the day.

A serving suggestion I have is to make it in individual custard cups; then pop out onto a bed of spinach. I also garnish with a half of an avocado and some cherry tomatoes, sliced on top.  Divine.  xoxo


Lady Di’s Egg Casserole

Lady Di’s Egg Casserole


  • 10 eggs beaten lightly
  • 1/2 c. flour,
  • 1 pint cottage cheese
  • 1 lb. of mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1/2 c. melted butter
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • Optional ingredients:
  • 1 lb sausage browned
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 8 oz pkg mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 5 oz box of spinach
  • You can also add any other veggies you like-


  1. In a large bowl mix the first 7 ingredients.
  2. Brown the sausage and drain on paper towels.
  3. Sauté onion, mushrooms, and spinach and add it to the egg mixture with the sausage.
  4. Pour all of this into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 40-60 minutes.
  5.  You can also use different cheeses if you like. In the past I have used parmesan, romano, asiago in addition to the mozzarella. You can use whatever cheese you like as long as the amount is the same.
  6. I also half this recipe if making a smaller amount. You can also bake this in small, glass Pyrex custard cups for individual servings. Can be frozen after baked.


A New Year’s Resolution :: Chronological Bible 2017

One of my other New Year’s Resolutions was to switch the translation of the Chronological Bible that I am reading.  I have heard that it is helpful to read out of different translations, so here goes. Plus, I love to invite people to read with me and the NIV version I have is out of print, so folks couldn’t join with me.  I will now join with them.

This is the version I am diving into this year.

Chronological Bible New Living Translation

The Tyndale Chronological Bible, New Living Translation, 2007.  Available here on Amazon.

This will be my 6th year to read through the Bible this way.  I have talked about why I love this way of digging into the Word here and here .  Oh, and also here.  I kind of like this Bible.

I spoke at a Mops meeting recently and gave them a New Year’s Resolution because that is what I do! Ha ha. I invited them to join me in reading the Chronological Bible, the New Living Translation.  If you want to jump in and join us, please do.  It is fun to read in community, to have some gals you share with or ask a question about the reading.  Accountability, people.  That is what helps us keep those resolutions.

I will be posting on IG and writing on the blog about things I am seeing and learning periodically.  Join me?

This week in my reading I was struck with how much the LORD loves Joseph and was a part of his life through all the ups and downs.  Remember when Joseph was thrown in prison because of the deceitfulness of Potiphar’s wife?  In Genesis 39:21 it says:

But the LORD was with Joseph in the prison and showed him his faithful love.  And the LORD made Joseph a favorite with the prison warden.

and then a few verses later in verse 23,

The warden had no more worries, because Joseph took care of everything.  The LORD was with him and caused everything he did to succeed.

Faithful love.  The LORD was with him. The Lord caused everything to succeed for Joseph.  Our pastor said the phrase faithful love is translated in Hebrew, HESED.  A faithful, loyal love.   I need that.  You need that.  The people we come into contact need the Lord’s faithful, loyal love.

The Chronological Bible reminded me that God is a faithful God who is always looking out for me.  I need to receive that.  #RestandReceive

Today was a hard day.  I needed that reminder that His love is faithful and that He is with me even on the hard days.  How about you?
