I like brunch recipes that can be prepared the day or evening before and put in the oven the next morning. This Easter I’m making an overnight egg dish that tastes like a quiche, but without all the work. I’ll make it even easier by prepping the ingredients on Saturday morning.
  1. Fry and crumble the bacon. Place in a Ziploc® bag and refrigerate.
  2. bacon
  3. Crush the corn flakes and cut the Country Hearth Split Top White bread into approximately 3/4″ cubes; store in separate containers.
  4. bread
  5. Lastly, whisk together the wet ingredients. Place the mixture in a glass or plastic container, seal tightly, and keep in the refrigerator. Before going to bed on Saturday night, I’ll assemble the quiche casserole according to the recipe. In the morning, while the quiche is baking in the oven, I’ll have time to set the table, make coffee and cut up fresh fruit to serve on the side. (I’m going to be sure to leave room for a small chocolate bunny for dessert!)
