Sometimes I find that breakfast dishes don’t contain enough vegetables.
With bacon, sausage and eggs, I can easily get my fill of protein before the day gets started. But what if I wants a few colorful veggies thrown into the mix?
Adding in the veggies
This Vegetable Croissant Breakfast Casserole is for people like me who are desperately looking to squeeze in a few more vegetables at breakfast. It’s easily one of my favorite breakfasts because it’s not super sweet. The savory cheese mixed with greens like broccoli and spinach and combined with sun dried tomatoes makes a flavor combination that’s really delightful and will make you want to eat this every morning.
The breas makes this Vegetable Croissant Casserole
Aside from the greens and the sun dried tomatoes, I used croissant bread to make this beautiful croissant breakfast casserole. I really wanted a bread that would be firm but soak up the egg mixture well. The croissants do all that and add a touch of buttery sweetness that compliments everything and pulls the fish together as one cohesive meal.
Due to its savory nature, the Vegetable Croissant Breakfast Casserole dish could easily pass for lunch or dinner in addition to breakfast and it makes an outstanding brunch dish when you’re looking to serve up something special and different to friends and family.
To make this, you just need a few mixing bowls and a casserole dish. You can also save it for about 48 hours in the refrigerator after making.
