Plated + Served: Family Breakfast Casserole


Are you ready for Father’s Day?

I’m not talking about the gift giving (because I’m sure you’ve got THAT taken care of, ahem…). I’m talking about what you and the kids are going to make for breakfast to help Dear Old Dad start his day.

This Family Breakfast Casserole is perfect for Father’s Day because you make it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. You can also pull it together in the morning because it doesn’t take that long to whip up (besides, you’re letting Dad sleep in, right?).

This is just one of the recipes Mama has written for the folks at Right@Home, a bilingual website that’s loaded with recipes, cleaning and organizing tips, decorating  and great craft ideas. And we can ALL use a little extra help in those areas, can’t we?

I made this in a 9” X 13” pan because all five kids will be home, but you can cut the ingredients in half and prepare it in an 8” by 8” pan or even a 9” cake pan. Remember, it puffs up like a beautiful golden soufflé, so make sure your pan is deep enough.

With any luck, Dad will get a little puffed up himself when he sees what you and the kids have done to get his special day off on the right foot…(now, get going on those gifts!)
