Even though this is called a breakfast casserole, we ended up having it for dinner. I made this in middle of the day and intended on just holding it over for breakfast the next day.
But I just couldn’t. After scooping into it for the pictures and trying bits and pieces, I ended up with a full plate. I love a good brinner!
Naomi will tell you I’m always nibbling at corners, undersides, and any place that isn’t noticeable when I make food for the blog. I don’t have the patience to wait until after the pictures to eat.
And apparently, no one in the house was going to wait until breakfast to dig in. As I mentioned, this ended up being dinner. I’m not sure it would have gone over as well if I told the little guy the casserole was really a refrigerator clean out dish made of some broccoli, sausage, leeks, crushed tomatoes, and odds and ends of breads.
My mom would be so proud. I literally cleaned up what I usually throw out. If you have items that need to be purged, just keep the egg, milk and bread ratio while swapping everything else out as you need or to your preference.
