This easy and healthy breakfast casserole is loaded with vegetables to start your day off with a nutritious meal! And a delicious meatless dinner!
There’s something you should know about me. I don’t like routine but I’m stuck with having oatmeal and smoothies for breakfast. Not a bad idea but I wish I have a proper breakfast like fried egg salad or french toast. I probably hungry as I type this, but really…I miss savory breakfast.
Coincidentally, I bumped into this one when I was in Indonesia.
Oatmeal with chicken soto flavor. Soto is a yellow chicken soup, a famous traditional dish of Indonesia. I didn’t get a chance to try this and I wish I could bring some home; however the TSA is very strict about getting meat into the U.S. so I could just taste this in mind. One day, maybe.
Long story short, I always have my savory brunch on weekends because that’s the only time I could take my time and do nothing but enjoying a big plate of “cold” savory brunch, after taking pictures for Instagram. But next week will be different. Between Valentine’s Day and Lunar New Year, there’s not much time to prep. In fact, you’ll probably find me snooze on Sunday morning due to food coma. And this is where this casserole comes in handy.
I love a hearty easy breakfast like this and I’m sure you do too! So here you go. Loaded Mushroom Breakfast Casserole, a perfect dish for Lent, Meatless Monday and my vegetarian friends. I might skip fried egg salad for breakfast for this.
They’re so, so good and they probably took me fifteen minutes to make from start to finish.
Easy. Healthy. Cozy. Portable. Best ever. And makes your #SundaySupper rawk!
