Are you a meal prep person? Lately, I’ve been trying really hard to pre-plan meals that I can take with me to work or eat while I’m on the go. This mini breakfast casserole recipe are a great on-the-go breakfast or dinner (if you like breakfast for dinner like I do ).
Lately, I’ve used my Sundays to do meal prepping for the week. Although it can be a bit arduous cooking most of the afternoon on Sunday, it saves so much time during the week. For example, I had a late work meeting this week. The last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner. Instead, I preheated the oven and reheated a couple of these mini breakfast casserole recipe and enjoyed them with some veggies on the side. It was a super simple, quick and nutritious meal that took me only minutes to throw together.
The new make the prep process even easier with their perfectly blended versatility. The slow cooker blends, like the one I used, are great for putting together a convenient meal for the whole family. I love using my slow cooker because it does all the work for you. McCormick offers egg casseroles and French toast seasoning that make warm, hearty slow cooker meals the whole family can enjoy. They offer several different sweet and savory breakfast seasonings that you shake on for an instant flavor upgrade. You can learn more about the McCormick Good Morning Slow Cooker breakfast seasonings by visiting Walmart. Mornings can be so hectic, but by creating this mini breakfast casserole recipe using the McCormick seasonings, I know I’ll have a fulfilling breakfast recipe ready for my family to eat before work and school, or grab quickly on the go.
I also love this mini breakfast casserole recipe because it is so versatile. You can truly make it your own by adding your favorite vegetables, meats and cheeses. I kept mine vegetarian, but you can certainly add some bacon, sausage or ham to it. You can definitely change up the veggies too, if you’re not a spinach fan. It would taste great with onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc. The same goes for the cheese. I had parmesan on hand already, but you could easily do feta or shredded cheddar, depending on your flavor preferences.
If you’re looking for a fun recipe to change up your breakfast routine, or if you’re hosting a brunch soon, definitely give this mini breakfast casserole recipe a try.
