Easy One Dish Breakfast Casserole – Christmas Morning Brunch [RECIPE]
It seems like all we do at our office is eat. We find all kinds of excuses to eat. We have a 'Promotions Meeting' today so everyone brings a breakfast item to share before the meeting. I decided to make my 'Christmas Morning Brunch' for our meeting and the recipe follows. (The description 'meeting' is sort of a stretch for us.) Promotion meetings are fun because it's a brainstorming meeting and anything goes. Ideas are shouted out and written on the white board, no idea is a dumb idea (unless is comes out of my mouth). Once we all have enough sugar or caffeine on the brain you wouldn't believe some of the ideas that are generated.
Now, on to the recipe. This recipe was given to me by my ex-Mother-In-Law. It's easy to make and you make most of it the night before so all you have to do is add the topping, pop it in the oven and bake it for 1 1/2 hours in the morning. It's a great dish for when you have lots of overnight company (like Christmas). She served it with Orange Julius but I prefer Mimosa's. She was a good Minnesota Lutheran woman. I'm not (haha). And, since I'm trying to learn how to use my camera in manual mode, you also get some great pictures of the steps of the recipe.
