Make Every Meal Count

This phrase is a great reminder of not only how important what we eat is to our health but also in what quantity. The Beef Checkoff has a program that helps you with your protein intake for each meal.
Monitoring meals doesn’t need to boring. The 30 Day Protein Challenge is a fun, step-by-step way to help you get an optimal amount of protein throughout your day. Significant research shows that some people can lose and/or maintain a healthy weight, support a healthy metabolism, and age more vibrantly when they consume more high-quality protein, within calorie goals.

The Beef Checkoff

The Beef Checkoff has an amazing free tool to help you calculate grams of protein in your recipes! I used it to create my Beef and Cheddar Quiche.
Download Stock Your Protein Pantry HERE .

This easy quiche recipe has 3 types of protein. Beef, cheese and eggs round out this breakfast with 27 grams of protein per serving.
I especially like the versatility of this recipe. You can use leftover beef roast or freshly prepared steak pieces. I used half and half instead of cream but milk or part milk will work as well.

Grating your own cheese for this dish is the way to go. Many packaged shredded cheese contain agents to keep the cheese from clumping. Unfortunately these additives hinders the melting process. I like my quiche smooth and creamy. I bet you do too.

Minced shallots and a bit of thyme brings out the wonderful umami taste of beef.

Greens & Eggs & Ham #WeekdaySupper

Greens & Eggs & Ham is a delightful dish you can serve straight from the pan. One of 120 exciting new sheet pan cooking recipes directly from Molly Gilbert’s new Sheet Pan Suppers Cookbook.

Greens & Eggs & Ham plate

Every cook loves one pan meals. Easy clean up and less dirty dishes equals more time for enjoying your meal. Sometimes depending on the dish you make and vessel you choose it doesn’t always work out that way. Casserole dishes can be hard to scrub with all the corners and ridges. Skillets can be a challenge too. Baked on or burnt on food needs, extra care to remove. I love my slow-cooker, but sometimes I need to soak it to get it clean.

I think we have a better idea to share with you. Have you ever considered making an entire meal on one or two sheet pans?

Sheet pan cooking means you can roast, broil or bake a meal on a sheet pan. This method will intensify the flavor of your meals. Sheet Pan Suppers shows you how to achieve juicy, tender meats, perfectly caramelized vegetables and crispy potatoes.

There are also sections for dessert ideas, small bites, snacks, brunch and more!

I love the tips and tricks included with the recipes. You will find the lowdown on different spices, easy ways and short-cuts for preparing a variety of vegetables and useful ideas for making these recipes your own.

Follow the Sheet Pan Suppers Pinterest board for more great sheet pan meal recipes and ideas!

Greens & Eggs & Ham #WeekdaySupper

Ingredients

  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
  • 1 boneless ham steak (7 ounces) cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 to 5 cups packed chopped kale
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • 8 to 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Crusty Bread for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F with a rack in the center position. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and mist the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Spread out the ham on the prepared pan and bake, using a spatula to mix and turn the ham occasionally, until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Transfer the ham to a plate with a spatula or slotted spoon. Do not wipe up any grease from the bottom of the pan.
  4. Place kale on the sheet pan, drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and toss to coat. Spread out kale in an even layer. Bake for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven but leave the oven on. use a wooden spoon to make 8 to 12 evenly spaced divots in the kale to accommodate the eggs. Crack an egg into each divot. Sprinkle the feta, the reserved ham cubes, and some salt and pepper on top.
  6. Return pan to oven. Bake the eggs until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Enjoy greens and eggs and ham immediately, with some crusty bread to soak up the warm, runny yolks.
