This recipe has become our traditional Christmas morning breakfast.... Assemble this delicious French-toast casserole the night before, and while everyone is opening presents on Christmas morning, pop it into the oven for a special, fuss-free breakfast that's ready in no time at all!
Crescent rolls, Jimmy Dean hot breakfast sausage, onions, peppers, salsa and two types of cheese make this a favorite breakfast or brunch dish-- with a Southwest flair! Can be made ahead. Serve warm or at room temperature, accompanied with sour cream and salsa or picante sauce. Deelish!
This is a different twist on the overnight breakfast strata concept. Crabmeat, shrimp, artichokes, and pesto bread cubes give this a unique taste. Plan ahead - once prepared, this needs to sit in the fridge overnight before baking.
Italian sausages with casings removed or bulk Italian sausage meat may be used in place of the small pork breakfast sausages --- make two pans if you are serving more than 5 people, feel free to add in other ingredients to the sausage mixture, the cheese amount may be adjusted to taste --- these are delicious!
Comfort food at it's best, this is a family favorite that goes back years! --- Jimmy Dean has a wonderful bulk sausage roll that will work great for this recipe, you may adjust the pepper flakes to suit heat level, my family likes extreme heat so I use 2 heaping teaspoons or you may use spicy sausage meat --- serve this over biscuits, I also like to serve it over mashed potatoes or fries :)
From a Canadian website and posted for the Zaar World Tour to Canada. This is a different way to cook eggs and a yummy one at that! It sure is simple enough. *UPDATE* to the hype about this recipe! A non stick pan is a MUST..once I did these over the campfire in cast iron and burned the heck out of the syrup, BUT that may have been my fault! YES I have done brown and serve sausages in the pan with the syrup, just add a little more syrup. AND I have even done the sausages with some thinly sliced apples in a little butter and the syrup, cooked til tender then add the eggs and a little more syrup. I personally don't like fried eggs or runny yolks, so for my portion I tend to break the yolk and loosely scramble the egg before dropping it in the hot syrup.....then I just let it cook kind of like and omelet with out mixing it too much until it sets then dump the whole thing on the waffle! In a pinch we have this with frozen french toast BUT it is so much better with a nice fat crunch eggo!
The ultimate breakfast comfort food. Quick to make if you boil the eggs ahead of time. To get the full flavor, you have to cook the butter and flour enough to lose the flour taste, that's the key to getting this dish right.
I found this recipe in a holiday magazine a couple of years ago and it's become a family favorite ever since. It's sort of like a fancy bread pudding, yet not quite, so I hesitate to really term it a bread pudding because in this case the croissants don't dissolve into the other ingredients like a normal bread pudding would, so the texture is much different. The orange flavor gives it a wonderful taste too.
My DH loves this. I hate to cook before breakfast but sometimes I make it for him, and the rest of the crew, because I love him. The ingredients are a little variable so don't hesitate to make substitutions if you'd rather use smoked turkey instead of ham or green peppers instead of spinach. Pre-cooked meat and veggies take some of the drudgery out of cooking before you've had your second cup of coffee. ;)
I got this recipe from a co-worker named Linda. She brought this in to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. I've used this for Christmas brunch and everyday dinners. I use Colby in place of monterey jack cheese if it's all I have. I've also used recipe #39562 for the milk and haven't noticed any difference.
