Amazing Breakfast Casserole2

I used to have a couple of different egg casseroles in my freezer meal rotation. They were simple ways to make eggs for many, and it wasn’t uncommon for us to have the for a weekday breakfast simply because it was about as easy to stick four of them in the freezer as it was to make “yolky” eggs for seven kids on a given morning! Efficiency, mama, efficiency! 🙂

Unfortunately, my two favorite egg casserole recipes were loaded with carbs—one had shredded potatoes (or shredded hash browns) in the bottom and the other had toasted bread cubes. So I really haven’t made a lot of them lately.

Enter this amazing recipe. I made it for a ladies’ brunch, and a low carbing friend said, “This is so good. It’s a shame it isn’t low carb.” She thought it had to have potatoes or something else in it. But it doesn’t!

This recipe can also be frozen in 8 x 8 or smaller pans for smaller families, like some of the smaller pans shown here.

 

I will put the ingredients for one, but if you have read much of what I have written about household efficiency and kitchen/menu planning, you know I don’t like to make one of anything. So the ingredients for four (one for now; one for the freezer!) are in parentheses following each ingredient.

Each pan serves six to eight people well.
