Breakfast Bake

Breakfast Bake

Once or twice a month we like to have breakfast for dinner.  We typically have pancakes, eggs and bacon.  The kids love to drench their pancakes with syrup, I’m a great mom I know!  I even got a waffle iron for Christmas and so now we alternate waffles with pancakes each time we have breakfast for dinner. Although pancakes and waffles are a favorite of ours, my husband requested something with hashbrowns recently and so this Breakfast Bake was created.

We like this meal a lot because it’s filling and it has all the breakfast components in one dish!  This Breakfast Bake was so simple to put together.  If you use brown and serve sausage you will really only dirty one dish besides the one you are baking it in.

We used turkey sausage, so I had to cook that first, but I try to be healthy where I can without adding too much extra work or compromising flavor.  I am not saying this dish is healthy by any means, but swapping fatty sausage links with lean turkey sausage links is one swap in the right direction.  I need to tell you all about my weight loss story, but I will save that for another day.

If you ever have Breakfast for dinner you need to add this to the list for flavor and simplicity.  It takes a long time to bake, so you can probably put it together in the morning and then throw it in the oven an hour before you need to eat OR you can even try cooking it in the crockpot.  I don’t see why it wouldn’t work in there.

Make breakfast for dinner a new tradition in your house if you haven’t already!  Enjoy!

      I honestly think breakfast for dinner is the only time I actually eat breakfast foods too. I am a smoothie and toast type girl for breakfast, so it’s nice to have a heartier meal like this for dinner.

    This looks delicious! Breakfast for dinner was always my favorite as a kid, but I sometimes found that pancakes didn’t really fill me up enough to tide me over until morning – I like that this bake has enough protein to fix that problem! Yum :)

    Hi Amber! This breakfast bake looks great for lunch, but I would also love to serve it for dinner. The ingredient list is short, which is perfect for a busy weeknight. Pinned! And thanks for sharing. :)
