One of the things that I like to do on Sundays is to prepare breakfast and a few dinners, for the week. It helps me to ensure my family is getting a hearty breakfast in the morning, without me actually having to cook every morning, and on days when I feel tired after work I can just throw something in the oven and call it a day.
One of my newer recipes for breakfast that I have been making is a breakfast casserole. Thing 1 LOVES eggs. He could eat them everyday for every meal if I let him. So I used to make little egg omelets in muffin tins for the family, but I began to grow bored. So I decided I was going to make a breakfast casserole one day from some craps of stuff in the fridge. It came out great and the family LOVED it.
Once I completed the casserole I cut it up into squares (12) and everyone got one for breakfast on Sunday, and the rest I bagged in little sandwich bags and put in the fridge. Now in the morning all everyone would have to do is grab a square and heat it up and go! My life made simple people. 🙂
I am including the basis of the recipe below, you can add in whatever you like to make it personal. Last week I wanted my kids to eat more veggies so I added in mushrooms and spinach and left out the salsa. You can pretty much make it your own. I hope you give this recipe a try and let me know how it goes over. If you have any questions feel free to comment below and I will answer. Enjoy!
(also, I keep forgetting to take a picture, so when I make this next weekend I will take a picture and upload to add to this post. Until then here is a pic from a similar recipe on allrecipes.)
Breakfast Casserole Squares
1 package of turkey sausage, cooked and crumbled (you could also use the pre-cooked turkey sausage)
10 eggs, beaten (seasoned to your preference)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1 1/2 cup Tater Tots
3/4 cup of add in vegetables (optional)
1/2 cup salsa (optional)
non stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8×10 baking pan or casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray and then sprinkle turkey sausage evenly across the bottom of the pan. Next sprinkle cheese and veggies (if using) on top of the sausage. Beat the milk into the 10 eggs, until well incorporated, and then pour over sausage and veggi mix in pan. Next if using salsa scoop over the eggs and lightly stir into egg mixture. Finally you will place the tater tots all over the top of the mixture, and place into the oven and bake for about 25-35 mins. Once the casserole is done remove from oven and let cool for about 10 mins and then slice into 12 even squares.
