Recipe: Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bake
We all need our breakfast staples — eggs, avocado toast, oatmeal. But when the work week is over and the weekend rolls around, it’s time to get serious. It’s time for brunch. While I love a good omelet and other savory brunch dishes, my heart belongs to the sweet ones, like this cinnamon roll breakfast bake. What’s that in the middle you spy? Why, a layer of cinnamon-spiked cream cheese between layers of sweet, eggy bread. This is one for sharing, folks.

When it comes time to host brunch this holiday season, use this recipe that can feed a crowd. It also offers a fancy (yet super-easy!) upgrade to the classic ham and cheese breakfast casserole, starting with cubes of day-old sourdough soaked in a velvety custard that’s laced with rich caramelized onions, bits of ham, and sharp provolone cheese.

Recipe: Spicy Kale and Sweet Potato Egg Bake
If what you’re after is a lighter breakfast for your family (you know, to balance out all those cookies), this veggie-packed egg bake is your solution. Laced with wilted kale and hints of cumin and smoked paprika, and built on a base of thick-cut roasted sweet potatoes, this breakfast casserole gets a spicy surprise from gochujang, the slightly sweet Korean chile paste.

Recipe: Blackberry Croissant Breakfast Bake
When you start your day off with something sweet, like this breakfast bake, it’s pretty much a guarantee that it’s going to be a good one. This bake does the impossible: It improves on flaky, buttery croissants by soaking them in a rich, custardy liquid and baking them with a slew of juicy blackberries. The result is pure decadence for breakfast — something we all need every once in a while.

Recipe: Sicilian Meatball Stuffing
"Raisins and meat together?" they would always ask. "What are you making?"

Recipe: Make-Ahead Pumpkin French Toast Casserole
This is how you do French toast during prime pumpkin season (aka right now!). It’s a sweet, seasonal breakfast casserole for a crowd and powerful enough to win over the most ardent pumpkin spice critic. Thick cubes of buttery brioche are soaked overnight and infused with rich custard packed with warm spices and a double dose of pumpkin. Then it’s dotted with a crunchy brown sugar and pecan streusel that takes it over the top. Amazing, right?

Recipe: Strawberries & Cream French Toast Casserole
This casserole is filled with everything you love about the classic, custard-soaked French toast from the stovetop, but goes big to feed a crowd and comes with a sweet, summery twist. It gets a double dose of berries, with bursts of warm strawberry jam in the center and glossy macerated berries on top, and melty nuggets of cream cheese scattered throughout.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Pumpkin French Toast Casserole
Ever since I met this sweet slow cooker breakfast casserole, I’ve been hosting weekend brunch as often as possible. It’s a treat to be sure, loaded with tender cubes of custard-soaked brioche tinged with the warm scent of pumpkin spice and topped with a nutty brown sugar streusel. You’ll want to keep this one in rotation all year long. French toast casseroles are my easy go-to solution for serving this breakfast favorite to a crowd.

Recipe: Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole with Cheddar and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
I love breakfast casseroles (I wrote a whole book about casseroles The flavor boost in this easy dish comes from two things: Hot mustard, and sun-dried tomatoes. Spicy mustard adds a piquant flavor — not easily identifiable, but a strong supporting player in the background. (Don’t worry — this doesn’t taste overwhelmingly of mustard!
Jan 29, 2020
Freezer Recipe: Sausage and Vegetable Breakfast Casserole
Being Southern and all, I grew up eating, and loving, breakfast casserole. (Some of you may call it a strata or bake. To be honest, I still don’t know the difference.) My mother’s recipe is basic—just sausage, bread, eggs, and cheese. Any time mom has to feed a crowd, whether for company, early football games, or Christmas, this is the dish she makes. I love hers to no end, but I recently discovered one I like just a bit better.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Cauliflower and Mushroom Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole
There are plenty of ways to make a tater tot casserole. Some are pure comfort food and combine the rich and savory elements that give most casseroles their hearty and homey reputation (canned condensed soup, I’m looking at you).
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Egg and Chorizo Breakfast Casserole
Last year I made Faith’s baked Denver omelet and, after I tasted it, mentally smacked my forehead and wondered why I didn’t make something like this more often. A baked omelet is essentially a crustless quiche — substantial enough to be a filling breakfast, without the heaviness of the added crust in a quiche. My latest version is filled with spicy Mexican chorizo and pickled jalapeños!

How To Make Slow-Cooker Breakfast Casserole Kits
Slow-cooker breakfast casseroles are sort of like a culinary superhero. They work through the night to save the day — all you have to do is throw in a few of your favorite breakfast ingredients and turn it on. But you can take this culinary cunning to the next level by stowing away a few breakfast casserole kits in your freezer, so that late at night you can call to your culinary superhero and be rescued from breakfast boredom.

Recipe: Black Forest Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
This hearty strata is our seasonal take on the classic ham and cheese breakfast casserole.

The beauty of this recipe is how easily it delivers a hot breakfast to the table in the morning.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Sausage and Greens Breakfast Casserole
When you want an egg dish to feed a crowd or make enough breakfast for the week, breakfast casseroles are just the ticket. Eggs hold together whatever ingredients you want to put in the baking dish, and in this case it’s a filling combination of frozen diced potatoes, savory sausage, a whole bag of baby spinach, and, of course, a few handfuls of shredded cheese.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Slow Cooker Sausage and Spinach Breakfast Casserole
Made-to-order omelets are a breakfast I always enjoy but rarely execute in my own home. The extensive prep and required attention over the stove so early in the morning means I reserve filling egg breakfasts for when I am the guest of honor. That is, until I realized that with a bag of frozen potatoes, fresh spinach, pork sausage, and Swiss cheese at my side I can mix up a mean breakfast — and most of that cooking takes place while I sleep.

The Brown Betty: 8 Fruit-Filled & Crumb-Topped Desserts
To my mind, brown betties belong to that same class of obscure and creatively-named Early American fruit desserts as crisps, cobblers, and pandowdies. But the key ingredient in the case of a brown betty is not flaky pie crust or rich cake or even dollops of biscuit. No, for a brown betty, you need plain old sandwich bread.Traditionally, brown betties are made with buttered breadcrumbs, and traditionally, they’re mixed with fall apples or fresh applesauce.

Whether I’m making an actual casserole or a lasagna, or just baking chicken, this time of year my casserole dishes are in heavy rotation. They usually clean up pretty well, but if I’ve overcooked something or I let something sit too long, they can get stubborn stains or crud that’s hard to remove.

This $20 Casserole Dish Looks Like It’s from Anthropologie
When Walmart releasedRee Drummond’s line of cookware and kitchenware several years ago, I fell madly in love with pretty much all of it. The Anthropologie-like whimsy hooked me at first glance, but the porcelain and high-quality ceramic designs of her dishes, cups, and mugs, plus the affordable pricing, are what had me coming back for more. Not to mention, I’m something of a Walmart-aholic and love finding hidden treasures whenever I can.

How To Make a Pasta Casserole Out of Thin Air, Leftovers, and Love
In cooking there are few dishes that lend themselves to what cooks wistfully wish after, which is cooking without a recipe. The romantic cook in us all wishes to cook like a grandma or a trained chef — by sense and feel and grasping after a taste you know you can achieve through instinct alone. But cooking like that doesn’t come out of thin air.

It practically begs to be front and center at your next brunch. Diced pancetta, bacon’s slightly sweeter Italian cousin, is the undercover star of this dish.

I have told you that brunch is my favorite meal of the day, and winter is perhaps the high point for brunch.

If this sweet monkey bread with a gooey glaze showed up it certainly wouldn’t go to waste, but I would need something else too, something to nourish and satisfy. I need something savory to start the day off right.

A Smart, Simple Tip for Better Mac & Cheese
How would you like to give your favorite macaroni and cheese recipe a super-creamy boost? Well, there’s an easy way to make it happen. And in case you were wondering, it does not involve adding extra cheese. It’s a simple trick — maybe you’ve already tried it? Aside from the cheese, a crucial component of really good macaroni and cheese is the pasta — and it’s time to rethink how you’ve been cooking it. Instead of water, cook your pasta in milk!

Leftover Pasta? Make a Frittata!

You make this frittata just like any other.

Help! Why Is My Mac and Cheese Oily Instead of Creamy?

Broccoli: The New Breadcrumbs
A new year means new goals. And for many people that includes changing food habits, cutting down on junk, and eating better. Sounds good. In theory. But resolutions around diets tend to be tedious and limiting, and are about as exciting as a bowl of wilted Brussels sprouts. And who really wants to kick off 2014 with a list of should nots and cannots? What if this year, instead of making a resolution to eat more healthfully, we make a promise to cook more playfully?

Recipe: Sweet Potato & Spinach Breakfast Strata
I can be an impatient person (my husband will affectionately call me Veruca Salt from time to time, and if I’m being exceptionally impatient, he will sing the Willy Wonka song). This impatience has lead to many years of quick meals because when I want food, I want it now. Breakfast especially needs to be quick and something I don’t have to put a lot of energy in to. So where does this strata fit in?

Recipe: Mixed Mushroom Egg Bakes
Despite the fact we are entering one of my favorite, easy, and effortless breakfast seasons (fresh berries and yogurt, anyone?), I love any chance to work protein into my mornings, so I’ve been doing a version of these egg bakes for some time now. They’re perfect for a weekday meal because they hold up in the refrigerator for a good five days. When baked ahead of time, you can have a brunch-worthy breakfast on an average Wednesday, and it will feel like a pretty big treat.

Recipe: Ratatouille Breakfast Skillet Strata
Having a few Weekend Warrior breakfast recipes in my back pocket has always served me well — recipes that go beyond oatmeal and yogurt into the territory of waffles, pancakes, stratas, and omelettes. That being said, I don’t like to spend a great deal of time on breakfast prep on the one day off I have with my husband, so I’ve been experimenting with recipes that allow you to really prep in advance — which make them good candidates for weekday breakfasts, too!

Recipe: Skillet Chipotle Chilaquiles with Eggs
“Are you making breakfast nachos?” my husband asked as he wandered into the kitchen and saw me throwing tortilla chips and salsa into a skillet. He wasn’t too far off the money: Chilaquiles is a Mexican breakfast dish traditionally made by pan-frying strips of stale corn tortillas and then simmering them in salsa. Variations can be as fancy or as basic as the cook desires.

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Bringing Someone a Meal
This is the season of my life where two things are happening simultaneously: many of my friends are having babies, and many grandparents and neighbors are battling an illness. I can’t remember a time where I’ve had more casseroles, cookies, or breakfast burritos to make and bake. It has been a season of equal parts joy and sadness, one where I’ve learned as much about caring for loved ones as I have about taking meals to friends.

8 Rules for Bringing Food to Friends
Bringing food to friends is one of the joyous chores of adult relationships: you get to celebrate new babies, grieve with your best people, and share in nourishing your circle through food.

3 Things You Should Always Include When Bringing Someone a Meal
Casseroles are the poster child for comfort food and because they can feed a hungry crowd, they’re frequently given as a food gift. Whether you’re bringing food to new parents, an under-the-weather relative, or friends who just relocated, every gift casserole (and really, any meal you bring to someone) needs three things that make the gift of food even better. Here’s what you need to know.

These Are the Cutest Disposable Casserole Pans
No one wants to be that person. You know who I’m talking about. The one who keeps reminding the hostess that she’s gonna need her casserole dish back. If you’re attached to your casserole dish, you probably shouldn’t bring it around this holiday season. Some (amazing) hosts will always track you down before the end of the night or even drive out of their way the next week to return your dish. But other hosts? Well, not so much.

Recipe: Apple-Cinnamon French Toast Casserole
French toast is the gold-standard of slow Saturdays – a hot cup of coffee in one hand, a sizzling skillet on the stove, and Billie Holiday crooning in the background. There’s nothing like the soothing repetition of whisking eggs and cream, cutting rich egg bread into impossibly thick slices, combining the two, and watching the toast sizzle in a pool of butter. That is the dream until you have two toddlers begging for breakfast before your feet find your slippers.

This Potluck Product Is Smart, Stylish, and Sneaky
A Thanksgiving potluck is a wonderful idea. When each guest brings a dish, everybody gets the chance to contribute and show off a little, and no single person is stuck with the effort and expense of arranging the entire meal on their own. The only problem with a Thanksgiving potluck is that transporting a big dish of hot, prepared food can be an absolute disaster.

Recipe: Make-Ahead Bacon & Leek Casserole
I firmly believe that at the center of every Easter brunch spread there should be a savory, eggy casserole that’s served up in slabs and washed down with mimosas. Make this number your celebratory casserole this year. It’s filled with leeks, as an ode to the spring season, and is packed full of crowd-pleasing bacon and cheese. Oh, and it can be made ahead of time, which really just seals the deal here.

This Is the Most Popular Make-Ahead Breakfast on Pinterest
Breakfast is too often the meal that gets forgotten, skipped, or phoned in. People say it’s the most important meal of the day, but it tends to take a back seat to getting oneself and possibly one’s family members all out of bed, made presentable, and off to school or work on time. So it’s easy for breakfast to become a cup of coffee on the go or a bowl of cold cereal. Make-ahead breakfasts can be a big help when it comes to actually eating breakfast.
