“My family really enjoys this breakfast casserole on weekends or holidays. It's so quick to prepare and very filling,” shares Melissa Ball of Pearisburg, Virginia. Great for those on a low-carb diet, too!
I got bored with the same old breakfast casseroles I'd see at our monthly moms' meeting, so I decided to create something new. Judging by the reactions of the other moms, I think I have a winner. —Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, Virginia
I created this when I wanted something different for a graduation brunch for two of our sons. When I realized I had most of the ingredients on hand for the Reuben dip I usually make, i decided to use them in a brunch casserole instead! Everyone asked for the recipe.
This has become the brunch dish I'm known for here in Pearland. The recipe combines the favorite flavors of hearty, old-time country breakfasts with the ease of a modern, make-ahead dish. Try ityou'll enjoy it.
When our family sits down for breakfast on days when this do-ahead dish is on the menu, I can relax and join them. I like to serve it with fresh fruit and homemade rolls. Plus, it adds a nice touch to a celebration brunch.
“My mom gave me this recipe, and it has quickly become my favorite breakfast casserole. I love that it can be made the night before and popped in the oven for a special breakfast.” —Melody Holland, Lebanon, Pennsylvania
I LIKE to prepare this when I have leftovers of ham and day-old bread on hand. It's a delicious dish for brunch.
Besides being so tasty, it's prepared the night before, which allows me more time to complete other dishes for the meal.
This dish still tastes good hours after being baked, so it's also a favorite to take along for potluck gatherings.
