Breakfast Casserole

My roommate Tina and I sometimes like to have Saturday breakfast together since we have been living together for the past 2 1/2 years. We are very similar in the fact that we love to sleep in on Saturday mornings. We have this pact that we can't get up until 11am unless we have something going on where we have to get up. If we don't... we stay in our sweats all day long together. Its nice and its our bonding time because we don't get to see a lot of each other during the week. Because of this, breakfast is really more like brunch or lunch sometimes.... but we still eat breakfast food.

Last week Tina did most of breakfast so this week I thought I would make it. I had been wanting to try this breakfast casserole from the Pioneer Woman. I am telling you this woman can not go wrong. Everything I have tried of hers so far is amazing. Its nice because you make it the night before... so really, I can sleep in. I woke up this morning, put it in the oven and went back into bed until it was done. It rocked.

I think this is the same casserole as one of the ones I tried at the amazing Winter Bridal shower that I went to last month. My friend that made it also added sausage and I loved it... so I also added sausage. It was amazing. Tina and I both loved it and I get to continue eating it for breakfast because I have tons of left overs.  I guess I could share too if you want to come over and try some. :o)

Here is the recipe for "Sleepin In Omelette":


  • 6 whole Onion Rolls
  • 1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 1-½ stick Butter
  • 10 whole Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Chopped Chives
  • ½ teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 dash Cayenne Pepper

Preparation Instructions

Generously butter an 9×13 baking dish.
Tear onion rolls into chunks and place them in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, then tear cream cheese into small pieces and place over the top. Cut 1 ½ sticks butter into pats and place over the top.
Mix remaining ingredients and pour over the top of the dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, bake at 325 degrees, covered, for 45 minutes. The remove foil and continue baking at 350 for 10-15 minutes.

looks very yummy. Today while I was in Wallmart I saw a Pioneer Woman cookbook! I knew she had a website, but I didn't know about the book. I looked inside and saw the Lasagna recipe I made in there. But why buy the book when you can get it free on the blog!

YUM!!! I LOVE breakfast casseroles. We have a hash brown based one that we make every April and October for conference. Maybe we'll have to try this one!

That looks SO delicious! In our family it is tradition to make this sausage/egg casserole for holidays or family gatherings. It is similar to this, but has some different ingredients. I may have to try this one out!!
