With Mother’s Day approaching, I have brunch on the brain. My huge family gets together each year for Mother’s Day, and everyone brings something to eat. My mom and sisters are phenomenal bakers, and they usually make cinnamon rolls and muffins, while my brothers are captains of the appetizers and alcohol teams. This leaves me with my favorite type of dish to prepare: something savory and filling.
Veggie-scrambled eggs is my choice for breakfast every day, but that dish can be difficult to prepare for a large group of guests. For this reason, I love making breakfast casseroles – or oversized frittatas, if you will – to ensure everyone is full and happy.
Preparing this recipe is a cinch, and you can make it in parts to accommodate your busy schedule. Simply sauté the veggies (either on the spot or up to a day prior to baking the casserole), then brown the sausage. Whisk the eggs, pour everything into a large casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese and you’re done! Once the casserole goes in the oven, you can work on other things or simply relax.
You can change up the ingredients in this recipe as desired to fit your palate. For instance, you can replace the sweet potato with russets or Yukon Golds; replace the kale with spinach; swap ham for sausage, or omit the meat altogether; add broccoli; use your favorite fancy cheese in place of mozzarella…the combinations are endless. However you go about it, your guests will be grateful for this healthy yet comforting brunch option.
Here’s what you need to make this brunch happen:
