Yum yum! Here are a couple of my favorite tried and true breakfast casserole recipes. I love them 'cause you make them all the night before and just pop them in the oven in the morning . . . and they're all easy.

Ham Strata

14 slices of bread, crust removed
3 c. cubed ham or sautéed sausage
10 oz. cheddar cheese, grated
10 oz. Swiss cheese, grated
6 eggs
3 c. milk
1/2 t. dry mustard
3 c. corn flakes, crushed
1/2 c. butter, melted

Spray 9 x 13 inch glass dish with Pam and line dish well with bread. Mix cheese and ham or sausage. Sprinkle 1/2 of mixture on bread and repeat layers. Combine eggs with seasonings and milk and pour over mixture in pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next day sprinkle with crushed cornflakes and top with melted butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Let set about 10 minutes before serving.

This breakfast casserole recipe is good and easy, and you can substitute crab meat for the sausage if you'd like. You can also add green onions, green and red peppers and mushrooms and omit the meat, since you're using so many vegetables, if you'd like. You can also use a can of cream of mushroom soup to replace one of the cups of milk. Feel free to experiment.

Quick and Easy Breakfast Casserole

4-6 slices of bread, buttered, torn up, and placed in greased 12 X 9 baking dish
1 lb. bulk sausage meat, browned, drained and placed on bread

Beat together and pour over all:
6 eggs
2 c. milk
1-2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 t. dry mustard (optional)
1 t. salt
dash pepper

Bake at 350° for 35-40 min. I always make it the day before, store in the fridge overnight, and bake in the morning. Leftovers are good warmed in the microwave.

Want something a little different but still tasty? Then, here you go. This one serves six to eight(?) depending on how many football players are in your house!

Breakfast Enchilada

2 c. hash brown potatoes (use fresh OR buy frozen and thaw)
1 medium onion, chopped
5 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. milk
1/2 t. salt
Dash of pepper
2 T. butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup
10 oz. can tomato & green chilies, drained
Monterey Jack Cheese, grated
8 - 6" flour tortillas

Topping/Garnish (optional)
1 avocado
2 green onions, sliced
Sour cream
Salsa
Fresh cilantro

Spray non-stick fry pan and 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Brown potatoes and onion in fry pan. Remove from pan to cool.

Mix eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Heat butter in fry pan over medium heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Pour in egg mixture. Scramble mixture, forming large soft curds. Continue until eggs are thickened but still moist. It is better to remove scrambled eggs from pan when they are slightly underdone. Heat retained in eggs completes the cooking.

Add eggs to potatoes and onions. Cool. Mix well.

Spread 1/3 c. egg and potato mix across each tortilla. Top with 1 T. Jack cheese. Roll each tortilla. Place seam side of each enchilada down in 9x13 pan. May be prepared, covered with the foil and placed in fridge overnight.

Next morning: Pour mushroom soup over center 2/3 of each enchilada. Heat in 375° oven until hot. Soup will spread. Top with Jack cheese and tomato and green chilies. Return to oven just long enough to melt cheese. Serve hot, garnished with avocado slices, & green onion. Serve salsa and sour cream on the side.

Would you prefer something sweet? I always set out extra maple syrup for anyone who wants it. I also sometimes use egg beaters instead of the real eggs. This is a great breakfast casserole and everyone always loves it. Enjoy!

Baked French Toast

1 loaf white bread, cubed
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed and softened
1 dozen large eggs
1/2 c. maple syrup
1 c. milk

The night before serving, line bottom of a 13x9 pan with half the bread cubes. Layer cream cheese on top of bread. Add remaining bread cubes on top. Beat eggs, maple syrup and milk together. Pour mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes or until lightly browned.

Or, how about something fruity and delicious . . . and relatively easy?

Baked Blueberry French Toast

12 slices day old white bread, crusts removed
2 (8-oz.) pkgs. cream cheese
1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
12 eggs
2 c. milk
1/3 c. maple syrup or honey

Sauce:
1 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
1 c. water
1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
1 T. butter or margarine

Cut bread into 1-inch cubes; place half into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Cut cream cheese into 1-inch cubes; place over bread. Top with 1 cup of blueberries and remaining bread. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and syrup; mix well. Pour over bread mixture. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 25-30 minutes more or until golden brown and center is set.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; add water. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries; reduce heat. Simmer 8-10 minutes or until berries have burst. Stir in butter until melted. Serve over French toast.

And, one more . . . not a casserole, but a sweet ending to your breakfast.

Pineapple Upside Down Breakfast Rolls

1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. drained crushed pineapple (I used the whole thing)
1 t. cinnamon
1 can refrigerator biscuits

Melt brown sugar and butter in 8-inch square or round cake pan. Add pineapple and cinnamon; mix well. Place biscuits on top. Bake in preheated 425 oven for 10 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. YUM.

I thought I'd throw this one in, too, just in case you're wanting something more potato-y. The only thing is . . . this one is not "make-ahead." This one you do "the morning of." Enjoy!

Breakfast Mess

1 pkg. (26 oz.) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
1/4 c. cooking oil
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans (12 oz.) Spam, cubed OR 3 c. cooked ham
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1-1/2 c. (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, fry potatoes in oil for 10 minutes. Add green pepper, onion and garlic; continue to cook for 25 minutes or until potatoes are browned and vegetables are tender. Stir in Spam; heat through. Cover and remove from the heat. In another greased skillet, combine eggs, salt and pepper. Cook and stir gently until eggs are set. Stir into potato mixture. Top with cheese; cover for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. YIELD: 6-8 servings.

Thanks Inky, I can't wait to try these. I am especially intrigued by the French Toast one. I will let you know how they turn out. Merry Christmas!

There's another one a gal here at work does every year for our Christmas brunch, but I hesitated posting it 'cause there really isn't a recipe for it. You'd just have to play around with it, until you got it to suit yourself.

She takes a glass 9 x 13" pan and pours enough maple syrup in the pan to cover the bottom about 1/4" deep. Then, she mixes up some pancake mix, according to the directions on the box . . . but making it just a smidge on the thin or pourable side (not runny, though). Then, you just pour the pancake batter in squiggly lines all around on the syrup in the baking dish (like you would for a funnel cake, if you know what that is). When you're done, just squiggle a little more syrup on top and pop it into a 350 degree oven till it's golden brown. The syrup on the bottom bubbles up through the squiggly lines as it bakes and the whole thing is sooooooo good. It's always one of the first things to go at the brunch.

Like I say, though, you'd have to play around with this till you got the amounts right. (Hint: You'll want to use plenty of syrup.) It is so worth it, though. Wish I had some right now, even if it isn't low carb.

Glad folks are adding to our Breakfast section.

Should we try to publish a BB cookbook? All we would need are the proper graphics to enhance what sounds like such good eatings!

I needed this thread for my brunch. I made something like the "mess" one but it was make ahead. Mess would have been a good description because the potatoes were mushy. This recipe sounds better. Wink

Yum-I'm hungry just reading this.

A AABB cookbook would be a great idea. I'm having a great time trying out these recipes. Very Happy
