Crazy-Easy Breakfast Bake From Frozen

As you know, I’m a big fan of Buffets and big Casseroles when I need to feed a crowd for Breakfast or Brunch. Well, I’ve just tripped over a new ‘recipe’. It embarrasses me that I didn’t think of it first. Get this: You can use frozen Breakfast Sandwiches or Burgers in Breakfast Casseroles…

Add Onions or Peppers or anything else you’d like to the Egg mixture to make it your own…

No kidding. I wouldn’t serve them as they are, from the box, to myself or my family, let alone to guests. But frozen Sandwiches make a great shortcut when throwing together a quick, tasty Breakfast Casserole! The best part is, if you don’t tell anybody, and keep everybody out of your kitchen when you’re making it, they’ll never know you cheated…

What you need…

This basic recipe serves only 4, but you can multiply it up as much as you like!

6 large Eggs
1 cup / 250 ml Milk
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 tsp / 5 ml Salt
1.2 tsp. / 2.5 ml Dijon Mustard or ground Mustard Powder

6 Frozen frozen Sausage and Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches – OR –
6 Frozen Beef Sliders

What you do…

Make sure the Sandwiches are thawed before you start to prep this dish!

Cut the Sandwiches in 3/4 – 1 in. / 2 – 2.5 cm cubes and place in a single layer in a well-greased 8 in. / 20 cm square casserole dish.

Combine all the other ingredients in a medium sized steel or glass bowl and whisk or beat with a fork until well blended.

Pour the Egg mixture into casserole dish and gently – with your fingers – fold it into the Sandwich Cubes. Make sure all the Bread is soaked with Egg mixture. Add more Cheddar shreds on top, if that strikes your fancy.

Bake at 400 F for 30 – 45 min. – until cooked through and the cheese is starting to brown on top.

Serve it hot…

Serve it hot, while the cheese is still ‘pully’. Spoon onto plates or into Soup bowls. Everybody will love it! Make lots: folks will want seconds and, if there’s any left over, it’ll microwave up beautifully the next day…
