I've written a lot of recipes for egg casseroles. Between my recipes here and my casserole cookbook, I've beaten and baked eggs into dozens of permutations. There's good reason for this; egg casseroles are one of the easiest ways for me to make a week of breakfast in one big batch. But honestly, I've been getting a little tired of my egg routine. I needed something new, a fresh make-ahead breakfast with all the convenience of oven omelets.
This past weekend, I found it. Meet the polenta breakfast bake — a no-stir, practically hands-off way to make a hearty breakfast that will last you all week.
