This is an easy, versatile recipe that works well for buffet style or even a potluck. It has a very creamy custard-like consistency. (Note: Adding mustard to the eggs makes them fluffier, whether you're making this casserole or just scrambling some eggs and really adds to the flavour.)

I always make this Christmas morning and set up a buffet with the casserole, some fruit, a pot of coffee and pitcher of juice for a great 'help yourself' breakfast everyone can enjoy as we open gifts.

1
onion, diced
1/4 - 1/2 c
bell pepper, diced
6 large
eggs
1 - 2 tsp
mustard
1/2 c
sour cream
1/2 tsp
vanilla

How to Make Breakfast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cube the bread and spread out in a buttered glass baking pan. (I use a 13X9 inch)
  • 2Saute the onion and bell pepper in a small amount of butter until soft (do not brown.) Let cool.
  • 3In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, mustard, sour cream, vanilla, splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg, whisking until thick and well mixed. It should have the consistency and smoothness of a silky custard mix. Add a small amount of cream, half and half, or milk if you think it's too thick.
  • 4Whisk in the cooled onion and bell pepper, then pour over the bread cubes, making sure to cover all the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least an hour.)
  • 5Bake at 325 degrees F until set, about 1 to 1-1/2 hrs. Let sit for several minutes before cutting.
  • 6This casserole can be new and different each time you make it, just change up the optional ingredients a bit. Sometimes I omit the onion and bell pepper but use the cinnamon and nutmeg, another time I might add cubed ham and omit the cinnamon, sometimes I add grated cheddar or swiss, the possibilities are endless.
