Laura Says:

We all know starting our day and sending our kids (and hubbies) out the door with a good, healthy breakfast in their bellies is super important. Protein keeps you full longer, so eggs are a great option! But, even making eggs everyday can be time consuming – not to mention having to wash the pans. You’ll come to see a trend with me, making things as EASY as humanly possible! I’m sharing with you my solution for busy mom breakfast made easy!

Awhile back I started prepping an egg casserole on Sunday evenings, and then just heating it up in the mornings the rest of the week. It has made mornings a breeze!

For this busy mom breakfast, I start with a full size 9×13 Pyrex pan like this one (even has a lid for easy storage). I whisk 1 dozen eggs (or whatever random number I have in the fridge, no need to be exact with this recipe!) and about 1 cup of milk of your choice. I sauté some veggies and cook some breakfast meats, adding whatever seasonings I’d like. Then, add it all to the casserole dish, and pour the egg/milk mixture on tope and sprinkle with some cheese! Bake at 350º for about 30 minutes, or until the eggs are set.

You can even change up the casserole fix-ins weekly so you don’t get bored, and it’s so easy!

Here are some of our favorites combos:

A Few Bonus Tips:

  • The great thing about this “recipe” is that it’s really hard to mess up – as long as you have eggs and some kind of milk, you can really add any combo of veggies, meats, and cheeses!
  • You can use liquid egg, liquid egg whites, or egg substitute for another quick shortcut
  • I use unsweetened plain Almond Milk as a dairy alternative, but you can use whatever your family likes! Regular milk is great too.
  • You can “bulk up” the recipe by adding a bag of frozen hash browns to the bottom of the pan, and pour everything over it.
  • You can use leftover meat you may have too! Leftover taco meat is a great addition!!
  • My husband likes to put a piece of the casserole between a toasted english muffin to make a quick breakfast sandwich.
  • We LOVE Applegate products – their bacon, turkey bacon, and breakfast sausages are fantastic – Gluten, Nitrate, and Casein free, so you can feel good about what you’re feeding your family!
  • For a smaller option for just one or two people, you can easily halve the recipe and use a 8×8 or 9×9 casserole dish.


Cheers to good mornings ahead!
