One thing I love to do on the weekend is to make a breakfast casserole. Many times I can prep them the night before so they’re easy to throw together in the morning. It’s a tasty tradition my family enjoys. The smell of these five casseroles baking will get every sleepyhead out of bed.
“I created this Healthy Breakfast Casserole recipe by considering all the healthy ingredients that could go in it and sounded great,” explains Mary Gonzalez (Livermore, CA). “I made this for my son’s birthday brunch as we’re both watching our weight. He raved about it.”
Canadian bacon is a staple around our breakfast table and I loved the addition of fresh vegetables like squash and mushrooms. Mary gives a tip about parboiling potatoes that helps with prep. By doing this, it made everything perfectly done at the same time.
Tari Harlan’s (Poland, IN) Momma Mia’s Saturday Breakfast Casserole is a quick and easy breakfast casserole everyone will love. “I used to make this on special occasions, you know like weekends,” jokes Tari.
Bell pepper, onions, and sausage add a lot of flavors to the dish. This casserole combines everything you love about breakfast baked into cornbread. Yum!
Mixing pieces of bacon into the casserole gives it a savory bacon flavor. Eggs and cheese bind the fluffy casserole. Sliced and served as a biscuit square, it’s delicious! If you happen to have a bit of maple syrup in the fridge, dip a bite of the casserole into the syrup… you won’t regret it.
“My husband likes it with a little syrup over it,” shares Suzanne. “Serve with fresh fruit it makes a great brunch.”
Using orange cinnamon rolls adds a unique flavor to this recipe. But, in a pinch, you could use any leftover rolls you have. With bacon, cheese, and onions, this is sweet, savory, and a great way to start the weekend.
“Make this Breakfast Lasagna the night before (just don’t bake it) and refrigerate,” says Sylvia. “All you have to do is bake it in the morning!”
Sylvia has put together one hearty lasagna. The milk sauce takes a bit of time, but it’s the glue that brings the whole dish together. Italian sausage, the mixture of cheeses and eggs create layers of goodness. If you end up with leftovers, it freezes very well.
