Blintz Breakfast Casserole is the perfect recipe for a weekend breakfast treat. It is rich and creamy and oh so good. So, actually this is a delicious recipe to make any day or meal of the week.
I think versions of this recipe have been around for years. I have seen it many times with only slight variations. I think it probably originated with Betty Crocker or from one of their contests, but I am not sure. I do know that this is a quick and easy breakfast that is delicious!
Doesn’t that look rich, creamy, and delicious!
What I love about this breakfast is that it is a perfect base for so many things. We love this with a dollop of jam on top, but it is also good with fresh fruit or berries.
Fresh peaches sliced on top would be wonderful. So would fried apples. Really I think any fruit would be delicious on this.
If you are looking for a special breakfast or brunch recipe this is a great recipe to try.
And this recipe is easy to make gluten free simply by using my gluten free baking mix instead of the regular biscuit mix.

YUM! This looks like a wonderful breakfast for Sunday morning before church, or the perfect dish to bring to a potluck. Thanks for sharing it!
Can the leftovers be refrigerated or frozen? There are only 2 of us and doubt we can eat this entire dish.
We reheated the leftovers. They were best the first day, but it did work. I think freezing it might change the texture of the filling part. I think you could easily half the recipe and make it in a smaller pan though. I hope that helps.
What can I substitue for the oj?
I would try buttermilk maybe or milk with some lemon juice.
