I have always liked the idea of egg casseroles, but I haven't been a fan of those with hash browns or bread. Then one day, I saw a recipe for one using southwest ingredients and cornbread.

A light went off in my head. I didn't want the southwest ingredients for breakfast, but I knew I could concoct an egg casserole with cornbread using other ingredients I would like to eat.

Actually, this is more a concept rather than a recipe. Let me know how you vary it!

  • 2 Tbsp
    milk

How to Make Cornbread Egg Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Measure ingredients X the number to be served.
    For example, to serve 4, use 4 times all the ingredients.
  3. Cut the cornbread into cubes and toast in the oven for about 3-5 minutes or until the cornbread begins to brown and is crispy.
  4. Use a baking dish large enough for the number of servings; spray it with cooking spray. Spread the toasted cornbread in the prepared dish.
  5. Layer the partially cooked vegetable(s) over the cornbread.
  6. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg(s) well, and add the milk, seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  7. Pour the eggs over the vegetables.
    Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the egg(s) are set. More time might be necessary for more servings.

    Remove from oven and cut into servings if you are making more than one.
  9. Note: Maybe my favorite is spinach and feta! (Precooking fresh spinach isn't necessary.)

    Sometimes, I will make two or three servings for myself; the baked product warms well in the micro.
