I love pancakes! I love the idea of pancakes, the variety of pancakes, the dessert/breakfast quality of pancakes. I always order pancakes when I’m out for brunch or breakfast.
What I don’t like is making pancakes. How do you keep them warm when you have a large crowd over for brunch?
How do you get lots of variety without a lot of work?
What I do know for sure is that I love to have people over for breakfast and brunch and I would like to be able to visit with my guests when they are around, so, pancakes are out of the question.
They turn you into a slave to the stove.
This brunch casserole has solved many of my issues. Plus it is a hardy, yummy and filling dish that works great for a lazy Sunday.
I can make it in the morning and have it around all day for noshing.
I always include potatoes, onions, eggs and cheese but I vary the vegetables based on what I have on hand.
This time I added, red pepper and corn.
I start by sautéing the onion, red pepper and potatoes in a frying skillet then beating eggs and cheese together to pour over all of the ingredients in a casserole dish.
I’ll bake this at 350 for about 20-30 minutes in a buttered casserole dish.
It is easy and delicious and relatively healthy.
The best thing about it is that it is forgiving and will accommodate almost any combination of ingredients.
Experiment with your favorites and always have a hassle-free dish on hand that makes everyone happy and leaves you hands free!
