Generally I like to cook all of my wife and I’s food for the week on the weekend. Having food ready and accessible makes it much easier to stick with a diet. When breakfast and lunches are premade, you just grab it and go, no trying to decide what to make in the morning or feeling lazy and having to fall back to a fast food hack. So, in comes the breakfast quiche. You can put anything you want into it; its basically just baked eggs.
I like my bacon pretty crisp, and it will soften during the cooking anyway.Drain the excess fat. I use this special grease keeper that I got from Amazon a few weeks ago. It has a filter on top to catch the random stuff. I only put pure bacon grease in it and you can add it to anything you are cooking. It has a nice flavor and its free!
Line the bottom of your pan with vegetables. No need to grease it because of all of the bacon fat Note that I used a huge pan because I was making it for 2 people for 5 days so this is for ten servings. You can use a standard 9×13 as well.
Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. Then crumble bacon over the mixture. Add cheese and push in grape tomatoes. Finally, push it all down and in. Tomatoes are pretty high carb but this is a vegetable packed breakfast. You can of course not use them or include different vegetables.

|Tovolo 7.5 Quart Mixing Bowl
Most of my large 5day recipes and casseroles are all mixed together before being baked. You really need a giant bowl to hold all the ingredients and this one fits the bill!

The only pan you really need. Once properly seasoned, this pan can cook anything you can imagine! Lasts forever and never wears out.
|4.8 Quart Casserole Dish
Great for cooking those gigantic, week long casseroles! I call them 5day meals on the website. Normal casserole dishes are 10×13 but this one is gigantic and can easily be divided into ten portions.
