This recipe was chocked full of flavor. It had delicious peppers, onions and flavorful ground sausage. I made it for my husband’s class. My favorite quote from a student was, “I don’t even like peppers, but they are so good in this casserole.” If I can make someone like green peppers (even in just one dish) I have succeeded.
I used a half loaf of Old Country Italian Bread that I found at my local supermarket. You could also use regular white bread (six pieces). The Italian bread made it a bit more hearty, but the white bread would make it is bit fluffier and less bready. Both are good choices, it is up to you what you would like. If you have all the ingredients and regular bread, use that. You won’t be disappointed.
Overnight Sausage, Pepper and Onion Casserole
Flavorful casserole with ground sausage, peppers and onions.
This recipe is a keeper. It is sugary, buttery, crunchy and sweet. Honestly, Ree (the Pioneer Woman) is amazing and I have read/watched her for awhile. I was very excited for this to be my first Pioneer Woman recipe and I am glad that it was.
The first time I made this recipe, I doubled it. That worked just fine, except for I accidentally doubled the cream. That made this a bit more soupy. I wouldn’t recommend doubling the cream. Don’t do it. Just follow the recipe. I have made this now probably five times and it is a crowd favorite. You will need some syrup for the top. You can follow this recipe or just head over to The Pioneer Woman and read what she wrote. The recipe is entirely hers, this is just my review of it.
This is most delicious with a bit of butter on top, and some syrup. This would be perfect for any brunch, breakfast, shower, or church breakfast meeting. It will be a big hit.
Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Baked French Toast
Delicious baked french toast that is sugary, buttery, a bit crunchy and so sweet. It is delicious served warm with a bit of butter and syrup on top of it.
This is a really, really good recipe. I really liked it and so did the students. It was nice and buttery/flakey on the bottom and the creole seasoning made it really flavorful. I used ham, which made this delicious, in my book as ham is one of my favorite breakfast meats. The parsley, garlic powder and creole seasoning really made the dish flavorful.
It was universally loved and gobbled up by the students. The bottom definitely had the flavor of croissants (buttery, deliciousness), and was even a bit flakey which I wasn’t expecting. It seemed like a “light” breakfast casserole, but it does have a lot of calories and isn’t light in that way. It was very much like a soufflé in the texture. I would highly recommend this recipe.
Croissant Breakfast Casserole with Ham
A casserole that tastes like a souffle and is filled with ham and cheese. It is light, fluffy and delightful.
My husband teaches at Eternity Bible College. We decided to have his students over to our house to have class each week. We decided to feed them breakfast because college students love breakfast (and food). As a mom, working full time, and caring for an infant, I decided that the overnight casserole would be the least stressful way to do breakfast for the students. So, I searched for recipes. I basically searched Pinterest for hours and the found some recipes. I wanted to try a bunch of new things, both sweet and savory.
Each week I took pictures and journaled about the recipes. I didn’t really change them up a huge amount but made little tweaks here and there. Feel free to read my recipes or go to the original website and see what the author first said about making it. I hope that you find your new overnight breakfast casserole recipe. I now have my favorites. I will include all the links as I post them. At the end, I will post my favorite sweet and my favorite savory casseroles.
