Breakfast Casserole

 

This breakfast casserole is a recipe that I grew up eating in my house.  It was a favorite of mine as a child and it has now become a favorite of mine to cook on weeks when I’m going to be very busy in the mornings and need a quick option to reheat and go.

It is my go-to breakfast dish when serving company, on holidays, to feed large crowds for breakfast, or even to take to new mothers or those that have had surgery.  It’s so yummy and everyone likes it.

The best part about it is that it is incredibly easy and can be mixed up the night before and put in the refrigerator, so it can bake while you get ready in the morning.

Try it.  I think you’ll like it.

Recipe notes:

Because I know someone will ask about substitutes.  ūüôā  If you don’t like meat, you could add a couple more eggs and saute some mushrooms, peppers, or greens and put them in this dish.  I would not substitute the cheese or milk with anything non-dairy.  It won’t taste the same.  If you are gluten free, try using your favorite gluten free bread.
