Nourishing Wife-Saver Breakfast Casserole
Posted By Stephanie Langford On November 15, 2010 @ 8:00 pm In Breakfast,Holidays,Recipes | Comments Disabled
I grew up eating a “wife-saver” casserole each Christmas morning, with eggs and bacon and Corn Flakes crumbled on top. It was delicious and hearty, and best of all, my mom could make it the the day before and pop it in the oven while we opened gifts as a family.
Pancakes and waffles are a more typical “fancy” breakfast around our house, as we all love to smother them with our frozen berries we pick each summer, and a big ol’ dollop of whipped cream. But these can be much more time consuming to prepare on the morning of, which takes away from the enjoyment of the holiday somewhat.
I was thrilled when I discovered a recipe for a similar type of breakfast casserole in Sue Gregg’s breakfast book . I’ve tweaked it somewhat, but it remains very similar. As I’ve said before , Sue Gregg’s cook books are a wonderful resource for any homemaker who desires to serve healthy yet simple and frugal dishes. This casserole is, of course, just a little bit more decadent, but that’s what holiday celebrations are for!
The casserole can also be prepared the night before, and then be covered and stored in the fridge overnight. Then just pull it out and toss it straight into the oven in the morning for delicious breakfast with little prep or cleanup! Perfect for holiday breakfasts!
Did you note the theme with all the butter and cream and cheese? This is a fairly rich and filling dish, even without any meat in it.
You can serve this along with toast or biscuits, any type of breakfast meat, or a potato dish. I like to serve it with pan-baked, diced potatoes with seasonings (garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper, etc.), like these ones above. I add in plenty of coconut oil, toss them well, and bake for the same amount of time as the breakfast casserole.
