We live a few miles south of one of the nation’s busiest East-West thoroughfares. This means that in the summer our home is a revolving door of hungry, weary travelers. Some stay a few days, some just stay for breakfast or dinner- but whatever the length of the stopover, delicious food is a must.
much of a morning person. Yes, strike that ‘much’. I prefer strong coffee and a slow start to my day. And when I make breakfast, I like to start the cooking around 11am, preferably with a mimosa in hand (if it’s the weekend!).. You get the picture.
So- what’s the perfect solution for a non-morning person like me when a carload of hungry friends rolls through for breakfast on a holiday weekend? Egg Bake! Oh yeah!
Egg Casseroles are the perfect canvas for any number of ingredients, they come together super-fast, and you can sit back and enjoy that cuppa strong coffee while the magic happens in the oven. Gluten Free Egg Casseroles are even better, well- because they’re gluten-free!!
We enjoyed both a sweet and a savory casserole this morning (that’s 24 eggs!) and the 6 wildly growing children and the 4 trying not to grow adults were perfectly satisfied. The sweet casserole was a variation on my Gluten Free Breakfast Bread Pudding served with fresh peaches and blueberries. The savory was this sausage egg casserole w/ green chile. This takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, and then an hour in the oven- my kind of brunch fare- especially when company’s involved! Leaves more time for socializing!
As with most Adventuresome Kitchen recipes, you can switch out or add ingredients to suit your tastes and your needs. So invite over some friends- pop a little love in the oven and have yourself a foodie brunch! Mimosas optional!
