The holiday season is a great time for your Hamilton Beach® roaster oven to reach it’s maximum potential. While the roaster oven cooks a mean Holiday turkey, that’s not all it can do. From baking a cheesecake to making a vat of chili, the roaster oven really can do it all.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

This overnight breakfast strata is the perfect recipe for feeding an army – or in this case the relatives or out-of-town friends who are crashing at your home this holiday season.

You can prep it the night before and have ready to cook in the morning. A little planning goes a long way, especially during the holidays when things are busy, busy, busy.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

The night before, remove the roaster oven baking pan from the base and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Then layer croutons, ham, cheese, spinach, and red peppers in the pan. Feel free to leave the ham out if you prefer a vegetarian strata. You can also substitute cooked bacon or sausage (or both) if your family has a breakfast meat preference.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, half and half, salt and pepper with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes. Then pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in the roaster oven pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

When you wake up, heat the roaster oven to 275˚while you brew the first pot of coffee. Then add the baking pan to the roaster oven base, put the lid on, and bake for an hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours until the mixture is almost cooked through.

Remove the lid and bake for an additional 30 minutes until the center of the strata is set.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

This roaster oven strata is a sight to see. It’s light and fluffy, packed with colorful veggies and plenty of protein. If you need a breakfast you can make the night before and won’t have any trouble feeding the entire family, make this roaster oven breakfast strata. You might even have enough to reheat the next few mornings.

Classic deviled eggs are great, but how about adding avocado for a twist on a classic?

Avocado Deviled Eggs

We used the Egg Cooker to cook our eggs, but you could certainly hard boil them in a pot on the stove. Once the eggs are cooked, peel them, cut them in half and remove the yolks.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Using the food processor chopping/mixing blade, process eggs yolks, avocados, cilantro, mayonnaise, pepper and cumin until the mixture is smooth. Pipe or spoon the mixture into each egg white half.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Top each Avocado Deviled Egg -or Green Devil as they are sometimes called- with salsa and a sprig of cilantro. The salsa complements the avocado in the eggs, and adds a burst of red to this already colourful dish. Put these on the table for brunch or as an appetizer and wow your guests with a creamy, flavourful take on deviled eggs.

“How would you like your eggs?” I don’t know about you, but this question always throws me for a loop. How do you expect me to decide between soft, runny poached eggs, or fluffy, cloud-like scrambled eggs? I thought I already had a tough time deciding how to cook my eggs in the morning, then the Test Kitchen introduced me to sous vide egg bites. Thanks to the Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide and 6 Quart Slow Cooker there is yet another way to enjoy eggs.

Sous vide cooking is a no-fail cooking method that uses a temperature-controlled water bath to cook sealed food evenly and to desired doneness. To learn more about sous vide cooking, click here.

To make sous vide egg bites, select sous vide mode on the Hamilton Beach® Professional Sous Vide and 6 Quart Slow Cooker and set the temperature to 172 degrees for 1 hour.

Add eggs, sour cream, feta cheese, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper to a blender or food processor. Blend or process until the mixture is smooth, then add roasted red peppers and fresh basil to the mixture and pulse until combined.

We found that 4 oz clear canning jars were the perfect size for our sous vide egg bites. Spray the inside of the jars with nonstick cooking spray then divide the egg mixture evenly amongst the jars. Seal the jars tightly and add them to the preheated water bath and press start.

 

Once the egg bites are cooked, remove the jars from the water bath and enjoy. The jars can serve as a functional cooking vessel AND an attractive way to serve these cute, individual bites. If you would rather plate your eggs, simply slide a butter knife along the sides of the jars – the eggs will pop right out.

 

How would I describe these egg bites? Delicate. Silky. Rich. Any word you’d use to describe the perfectly cooked eggs. Whether you are keeping pre-cooked bites in the fridge as an grab-n-go breakfast during the week or serving them at brunch, each and every bite will be egg-cellent.

  2. To a blender or food processor add eggs, sour cream, feta, salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper. Blend or process at medium speed until mixture is smooth, about 20 seconds.
  3. Add the roasted red peppers and basil to the egg mixture and pulse briefly to combine.
  4. Spray the inside of the jars with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Divide egg mixture evenly among the jars. Seal the jars with the lids.
  6. When water reaches set temperature, add the jars to the water bath and press start.
  7. When cooking time has ended, remove the jars from water bath and open.
  8. If desired, remove egg bites from the jars by gently sliding a butter knife around the edge of the jar and inverting onto a serving dish. Egg bites may be placed under a broiler for a few minutes if a browned surface is desired.

Breakfast casseroles are a great way to feed a crowd, whether it’s your large family or house guests over the weekend. Eggs, potatoes, bacon, cheese, tomatoes and more cheese – what’s not to like? If you need to feed a crowd, put this Spiralized Potato Breakfast Casserole on the table and watch it disappear.spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-5

 

Using your 3-in-1 Electric Spiralizer, spiralize about 2 pounds of baking potatoes. The spirals give this standard casserole a revamped appearance and texture. Microwave the potato spirals in a baking dish before adding the other ingredients. This helps the potatoes get a head start on cooking (they finish while the casserole bakes).spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-1

For your egg mixture, using a hand mixer, beat eggs, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper on medium speed. Then add grape tomatoes, cheddar cheese (or a combination of your favourite cheeses), green onion and bacon to the egg mixture and stir. We used pre-cooked bacon as a time-saver but if you have the time in the morning, a little bacon grease wouldn’t hurt this recipe. Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees.spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-14

Uncover the casserole and add remaining cheese and dot the top with grape tomatoes. Put it back in the oven to finish cooking for about 15 minutes and you’re ready to serve.spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-11

This casserole is a meal in itself, but you could serve it alongside fruit salad or extra pieces of bacon for an extra hearty breakfast. It serves twelve so make sure diners bring their appetites or save leftovers for breakfast throughout the week.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

Deviled eggs are an Easter must-have, and they’ll be showing up on every potluck, brunch, shower and cookout table through Labor Day. Classic deviled eggs are a no-fail favorite, but if you’re looking to jazz up the basics this year, we have just the recipe for you.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

Pimento cheese has been on our minds lately and it’s good in just about everything. Deviled eggs are no exception. In the South, it’s not surprising to see this delicious spread mixed into egg yolks for a cheesy twist on the standard deviled egg.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

The most common questions we get asked about making deviled eggs are these: What is the best way to cook hard boiled eggs? and What is the best way to peel hard boiled eggs? Well, we like to save time (and our sanity) by using the Egg Cooker. It takes less time than cooking eggs on the stove and they peel easily every time. This gadget has quickly become one of my home’s favorites.

After preparing your eggs, add the pre-made pimento cheese spread to the yolks and give it a good stir or a couple rounds with a hand mixer to make sure all the ingredients are well-combined. Pipe or spoon the filling into the egg white halves and top each deviled egg with a small slice of juicy bacon. It’s the perfect bite of savory, cheesy goodness, and it’s sure to be a hit at your next get-together.
