So it is Thanksgiving morning, and you have a house full of people that need to be fed. You are obviously going to be cooking all day in preparation for the big meal but we all know frozen waffles or pastries are just not going to do the trick. Here are a few ideas for a delicious breakfast on Thanksgiving morning!
This Breakfast Casserole is a household favorite! It will surely please all of the empty bellies in your home without causing too much of a mess! Here is what you will need:
1lb sausage, browned
1 can crescent rolls
1 bell pepper, chopped (optional)
1 medium onion, chopped (optional
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Ã?Â¾ cup of milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray and place the can of crescent rolls along the bottom of the pan. Spread the browned sausage and sautÃ?Â©ed peppers and onions over the rolls. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the sausage mixture. Mix the eggs and milk and pour into the casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes and ENJOY!
For those that want to prepare breakfast the night before, this Overnight French Toast Bake will surely please some hungry tummies! My kiddos really enjoyed this recipe that my Grandma used to make! Here is what you will need:
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 loaf of Texas Toast
1 Ã?Â½ cups of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Brown Sugar and Cinnamon for Sprinkling
Powdered sugar for Sprinkling
Mix the melted butter and sugar together and spread along the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Next you will beat the eggs and mix in the milk and vanilla. Now you will lay down a single layer of the Texas Toast and spoon half of the egg mixture onto the bread. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top of the egg mixture. This part is not measured, just depends on how sweet you want it! Next, lay down the second layer of Texas Toast and top it with the remaining egg mixture followed by a sprinkling of brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake French toast at 350 degrees for 30 minutes covered. Take cover off and bake for another 15 minutes. When you take it out, sprinkle it with your powdered sugar and enjoy! If you like it really sweet go ahead and throw some maple syrup on top!
Another great overnight idea is the Crockpot Breakfast Casserole. I took a couple of different recipe ideas to create this masterpiece and the family loves it! This is definitely a no fuss recipe that will leave your house guests satisfied without a giant mess for you! Here is what you will need:
1 cup of milk
1lb of sausage (or whatever meat you prefer!)
1 package of frozen hashbrowns
3 cups of cheese
Ã?Â¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of salt
Ã?Â½ teaspoon pepper
Mix eggs, milk, and seasoning together and set aside. Layer 1/3 of the hashbrowns on the bottom of the crockpot. Top with 1/3 of the sausage and a cup of cheese. Repeat for the next two layers. When finished making your layers pour your egg mixture over the top. Turn your crockpot on low and let it sit for 7-8 hours and voila! You have a delicious meal ready for whenever everyone wakes up!
These are three of the most requested breakfasts in my home and I am sure one of them will be a crowd pleaser in yours on Thanksgiving morning!
