Breakfast casserole is a favorite morning staple in our house. They are easy to toss together and you can use pretty much whatever you have on hand to make it. They can be as simple or as involved as you like making them perfect for busy mornings, leisurely weekend brunches, or family holiday breakfasts. They are also PERFECT for busy weeknights when we’re going straight from kid #3’s gymnastics class directly to kid #2’s goalie clinic with no break…and who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? One of the easiest ways to make these casseroles is to bake them in a cupcake pan to create little hand held mini breakfast casseroles that the family loves. These fun, protein packed mini breakfast casseroles are brought to you by our friends at Smithfield.
Sometimes the kids even help me whip up a batch or three, we cook them, cool them, and bag them up in freezer bags in advance. We love to make ours with Smithfield Anytime Favorites Hickory Smoked Diced Ham– it is fully cooked, 95% fat free, and ready to use in our favorite recipes! Smithfield Anytime Favorites are not only versatile, convenient and delicious, they also provide busy moms with the ideal solution for quick and easy meals anytime of the day during the hectic back-to-school period.
Mini Breakfast Casserole
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup Smithfield Anytime Favorites Hickory Smoked Diced Ham
2 Tbsp. whole milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Feel free to include any other filler your family loves- bacon, diced onions, olives, peppers, mushrooms, potatoes or other veggies.
Preheat oven to 350°
Coat a 6 hole muffin tin with non stick spray or use silicone liners (makes for super easy clean up).
Whisk all your ingredients together to mix well.
Divide evenly between the 6 muffin tin cups.
Bake for 13-15 minutes until tops just begin to brown.
This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, or more. Once they cool pop leftovers in a freezer bag to reheat for breakfasts on the go.
