Yum Yum: Breakfast Casseroles

So what do you eat for breakfast when you don’t like eggs? 

I also like cooking breakfast for my in-laws or guest if they are staying the weekend and always struggle for an easy breakfast that I can make ahead.  I have found the following 2 breakfast casseroles that turned out great. 

No Egg Breakfast Casserole
  • 30 oz frozen has browns, thawed
  • 16 ounces French onion dip
  • 1 lb ground sausage, browned
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  1. combine first 4 ingredients and one cup cheese -- mix well.
  2. spread in a greased 13x9" baking pan --
  3. bake at 350* for 45 minutes.
  4. sprinkle with remaining cheese.bake for additional 15 minutes

French Toast Bake Recipe
French Toast Bake
  • 12 day-old French bread
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1.     Arrange bread in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, 3/4 cup brown sugar, vanilla and nutmeg; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
2.     Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Sprinkle pecans over egg mixture. Combine butter and remaining sugar; drizzle over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with blueberries. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

I have now made both of them and they are great.  The first one is a little strong flavor for my girls (3 years old) but the second one they gobbled up.

Does anyone have any other make ahead no egg breakfast casseroles?
