    Camye—I’m especially interested in the individual egg casseroles, as I am planning a Longaberger bus trip Nov. 8th and expecting to serve 56 people breakfast on the bus! How many of the little individual casseroles does the one recipe make? I am also intrigued by the little close top lid containers shown in the photo. Can you give me any more information on where to get those? Thanks. love all the recipes—can’t wait to try them…..

      Thanks! The recipe made about a dozen mini casseroles. The containers are from Walmart (Great Value brand) right next to the ziploc bags. Hope you enjoy!

    We make Erin’s fantastic pancakes every Thursday night and eat them cold as grab and go on Friday mornings! Oh and the spinach in the smoothies is in no way detectable Momma’s! ;)

    We put Pb or cream cheese on the cold pancakes.
