Easy Breakfast Casserole Egg Strata Recipe: Have you ever made a breakfast casserole? I love to make egg stratas. It’s a casserole dish made with bread pieces and eggs. You can add any of your favorite ingredients. This recipe is a dairy free egg strata with sausages and bacon bits. It’s a very simple basic breakfast casserole that you can embellish any way you’d like to. Breakfast casserole recipes are a great way to use up day old bread. Ever since we went gluten and corn free in our house our bread budget has tripled. I hate to waste anything, especially perfectly good slices of gluten free bread. No one in our house likes to eat the ends.
Breakfast Casserole makes use of your bread loaf’s end pieces
It just feels like we are flushing money down the drain. So I came up with a recipe that will make those loaf ends delicious and get everyone in the house scraping their plates. You can eat this dish on a weekday morning because it can be made ahead of time and baked at the last minute on a busy morning.
Ingredients for Breakfast Casserole:
- 8 eggs, beaten
2 sausage links (we used Al Fresco all natural fully cooked Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage) skinned and chopped, but you can use any all natural preservative free sausages you’d like.
- 4-6 slices of your favorite stale end pieces of gluten and corn-free bread, cubed.
- optional bacon bits for garnish
- 1 cup of Almond milk (You can use regular milk if you wish, or any other dairy free milk)
- Salt and pepper to taste
When the casserole is nicely browned on top, remove from oven. Let sit 5 minutes. Slice into squares and serve.
NOTE: Leftovers can be frozen and reheated, so don’t worry about having to throw out the leftovers.
The individual squares will each heat up just great in the microwave on high after about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Of course you can also warm them in the toaster oven as well.
