Breakfast Burrito Casserole

My family loves breakfast. The problem is I am not a morning person. Well, it is not that I am not a morning person, it is more like I am not a breakfast person.

I have never been much of a breakfast eater, and I doubt I ever will be. I know breakfast is important, and I have tried to eat it on a regular basis, but food first thing in the morning has just  never set well with me.

However, my family is the total opposite. They all wake up hungry and are always ready for a good breakfast and that is a good thing. I know breakfast is important and good for them.

Because of this I am always looking for quick and easy breakfasts and breakfasts that can be made ahead.

This recipe today is a make ahead breakfast that I have been making for years. It is a recipe that I found in a Taste of Home magazine at least ten years ago. I have adapted it some over the years, but it is the same basic recipe.

I love this because it can all be made the night before and all you do is put it in the oven in the morning. I love recipes that make breakfast so easy like that.

  1. this would be an awesome use for crumbly corn tortillas. Around here, corn tortillas always get shoved to the back of the fridge until they are falling apart.

  2. this looks great!

  3. I love the variety and simplicity of your recipes, so I nominated you for a blog award – Versatile Blogger Award!

    This looks so good. I definitely am going to give this a try soon (especially as I am long on tortillas as of this writing)

  5. Oh, I so relate to that, I just cannot do food first thing. I need at the very least an hour, maybe two, before I can eat. Rest of the family is ready for as much food as they can get their hands on as soon as they open their eyes. I make up batches of things that can be pulled out of the fridge or freezer to get on the table quickly because I don’t even really like to handle or smell food too early. This looks like it could be one of those things.

    • @Karen, I am so glad I am not alone. 🙂 I have had so many people try to get me to become a breakfast eater over the years and I just don’t think I will ever enjoy food first thing in the morning. 🙂

  6. Sounds delish! Can’t wait to try it.

  7. This was a hit at my house! My husband and son raved about it. I made half a recipe and it was gone in no time. Next time I’ll make the full pan!

  8. I’ve got this one bookmarked – with dozens of eggs in the fridge (it’s spring at the farm!) I’m always looking for new egg recipes. And with company coming – I love the make ahead kind!

    This looks soooo good!

  10. Oh yum! Random tip for dishes that have been in the fridge and you don’t have (or want to take) time for them to sit at room temp…put them in a cold oven and turn it on and they’ll heat slowly with the oven and the dish won’t crack from being cold and put in a hot oven. 🙂

  11. Ever tried making it and cooking right away instead of the overnight wait?

    Mornings are NOT my cup of coffee. LOL!!! I have some left over deli ham sitting in my refrigerator and making this breakfast casserole is right up my alley!!! 🙂
