It may be Wednesday but it’s not too early to start planning next weekends breakfast. Weekends are about slowing down and reconnecting with family and friends. There is nothing better than a leisurely breakfast around the kitchen table. The smell of hot coffee brewing and chatting with those you love.
I first made these breakfast casseroles for my family on Christmas morning a few years back. Last year I made it for our staff Christmas breakfast where they were a big hit. Our unseasonably cool summer has me thinking about fall already and cold Saturday mornings.
This egg dish is like an omelet in a cup. You can take this recipe and customize it to what your family wants. Substitute sausage or turkey bacon. Add a few vegetables, combine your favorite cheeses. If you are making it for a big crowd, double the recipe and place in a 13×9 baking dish.
If you are looking for other inspiration Eating Well has a lighter version with turkey sausage and Epicurious.com has a fancier version with sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella.
The great part is you can prep and assemble the day before. You wake up turn on the oven and pop them in. Sit down and drink a cup of coffee or tea while waiting or them to bake.
