Anytime you have to feed a crowd or maybe your regular family, a breakfast casserole is the perfect answer to the problem of having breakfast made when everyone comes down to the kitchen hungry. When the weather is colder and the weekends are longer is the time that everyone is hungry for a warm home-cooked breakfast.
But who wants to stand over the stove making eggs & sausage to order for a crowd. When I have the whole family together, I want to engage with the people in my life, not my frying pan.
HOW TO MAKE A WEEKEND BREAKFAST FAST?
Even before you hop in the shower, you can go in the kitchen turn on the oven, and slip in the breakfast casserole and by the time you are ready, breakfast is ready to be served and all the work has been done the night before
I was drawn to making a French toast breakfast casserole because it reminded me of my childhood. I’m cold snowy weekends my mother would always make French toast. It was one of my father’s favorites and bassoon became one of mine, her secret ingredients for French toast was always a tablespoon of vanilla as my family group and cinnamon became the flavor of choice I would add a tablespoon of vanilla and a half a teaspoon of a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon.
A breakfast casserole with all the flavors and textures of French toast became a perfect solution when we had a house full of family. When we have a family home the last thing I want to do is to be standing over the stove frying eggs are making omelets catering to everyone’s specific egg desire that’s not the right word. A breakfast casserole solves this problem for me. I don’t have to stand over the stove and everyone gets the fluffy send a mini-protein packed breakfast they need before any fun-filled weekend.
