Lindsay from Our Family Treat Shares a yummy recipe with our readers!
One of our favorite traditions we adopted from my husbands grandmother. Now, this is not your typical cut up, soggy bread casserole. This is so so good! Grandma Pat would start the breakfast casserole every Christmas morning bright and early, before any
gifts were opened. As the festivities began, the smell of the breakfast became almost unbearable. She passed away only a couple of days before Christmas of 2001, and I never got a chance to meet her, Grandma Pat's breakfast casserole remains one of our favorite
Butter all 12 slices of bread. Place 6 slices, butter side down in a 9 x 13 pan (be sure to spray the pan with Pam first).
Then add grated cheese, meat and a veggie. This particular casserole had cheddar cheese, ham and onion. However, we also make a pepper jack cheese, sausage and green pepper casserole as well that is just as delish (just be sure to brown the sausage before adding to the casserole)!
Then layer with the other slices of bread-butter side up. Then top with eggs. Be sure to get all the bread covered with the egg. Cover with foil and place in the fridge over night.
In the morning (before the kids wake you up to open presents) put this in the oven at 350. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to bake...so it is perfect while you unwrap and play with all your new goodies! About an hour into the baking process, remove the foil so that the bread had toast. Once it is nice and brown, remove and serve!DELISH!
