My mama is a great cook! She would make this wonderful casserole for brunch that was a big hit with my husband and I. I’ve been trying to make Shan breakfast in the mornings and came across my recipe card from mom. With a few little tweaks it was THM friendly and just as yummy as when she makes it! This equals a very happy husband!
The BEST Breakfast Casserole (S)
- 8 eggs
- 6 cups of cheddar or colby jack cheese
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup of golden flaxseed flour
- 1/4 stick of butter
- 1/2 pound of diced ham
- 1/2 tsp of onion powder
- 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp of parsley
- 1/2 tsp of chives
- salt and pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 350. I spray a 9 by 13 baking dish with cooking spray. I beat the eggs and then mix in the rest of the ingredients, minus the butter. The deli will give you a nice piece of ham that you can dice or you can find it pre-packaged in a 16 oz bag. I usually buy it pre-packaged and I can get a few casseroles out of it or use it on salads or in breakfast burritos. After it’s all well mixed, I cut the butter into little pieces and dot it over the top of the casserole. I bake the casserole for 45 minutes to 1 hour. I keep my eye on it to see when the top is browning nicely. This serves 12! I often cut the recipe in half for the two of us but, the large casserole is wonderful for serving others or to last for quite a few days! It heats up so well! This recipe is great as well baked in cupcake tins! I’ve done this for a grab and go portion. You would need to adjust the cooking time though to 20 to 25 minutes. Keep an eye on them. This is a great recipe to stir up the night before so that you can just pop it in the oven in the morning. Easy peasy!
*Add your favorite veggies! Green peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc. You could even add in some chopped bacon! Serve with a dollop of sour cream and salsa for a Mexican flair! I love it like I originally posted it. It’s just plain GOOD!
