Expert Tips

Egg bakes like this one are perfect for assembling the day before. Just cover tightly and refrigerate overnight. Then, bake shortly before serving. The strawberry salsa will be best if prepared shortly before serving.

Always refrigerate leftovers immediately. Reheat individual servings, loosely covered, in the microwave on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes.

Served plain, the mild flavor of this egg bake appeals to kids. Let them decorate their pieces with sliced olives for eyes and aerosol snack cheese topping for the mouth.
