What Is A Breakfast Casserole?

  • Breakfast casseroles, sometimes also called egg strata, are a combination of a number of breakfast foods baked in casserole form. Some people relate it to a savory bread pudding but not all casseroles use bread. In cases where bread is not used, the recipes may turn out much like frittatas or baked omelets. The reason that breakfast casseroles may be called egg strata is because they typically have layered ingredients of things like bread, breakfast meats, and cheese. On top of these layers, people pour a custard-like mix which is usually a combination of eggs and milk.
  • Many people celebrate the ease of making breakfast casseroles especially since many recipes can be made the night before and baked just an hour or so before you want to serve breakfast. An additional benefit of the breakfast casserole is that it can be a great way to serve a meal to a lot of guests or a large family.
  • Many recipes for breakfast casseroles include slices of cubed bread. Bread should be slightly stale and it’s a great way to utilize leftover bread. When bread is used, the ingredients are often assembled the night before baking. This gives the bread time to soak up the egg/milk custard producing a thick and creamy result.
