I have fallen into this routine because inevitably, when I ask my kids what they want for breakfast, each one has a different answer, and I don't make separate meals for everyone. I am just a mean mommy that way.
One day, I was sitting at my computer, getting my WoW time in when my 3 year old charged down the stairs with his plastic sword in hand and faced me like he wanted a show-down. I was in the middle of leveling and didn't want to get wacked in the head with a plastic sword so I decided to pull the ole "distract the kid to be able to keep my free time to myself" routine.
"There are bad guys in the kitchen buddy! I can hear them trying to steal our food! Go get them!" He courageously ran back up the stairs, swinging his sword.
"I git oo baa guys!" He fought valiantly, just long enough to allow me to obtain my level. He came back downstairs, sword dragging behind him as if he had been in battle all day long. He looked up at me with his big brown eyes and said victoriously, "Baa guys all ded mommy!"
To reward my son for his good efforts I decided to let him pick what we were going to have for dinner. But of course, what did he want? Breakfast. Blarg... Of course, being the aspiring warrior he is, he didn't just want one thing for "breakfast" he wanted everything.
You want hash browns you say? And you want ham with your eggs? What, croissants? And you like hollandaise sauce? Eggs? Cheese? Well of course! We have it all my friend!
One Size Fits All Casserole Breakfast
5 Servings | Total Time: 45 Minutes | Artisan
- 1 pkg Refridgerated Croissant Rolls (uncooked)
- 1/2 cup Shredded Cheese (your choice)
- 1/4 cup Butter
- 1/3 cup Flour
- 1/4 tsp Thyme, dried & crushed
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- 3/4 cup Milk
- 1 cup Chicken Broth
- 1 cup Ham, chopped
- 1 cup Hash Browns (thawed)
- 3 Eggs (hard boiled, chopped or scrambled)
Strategies: You MUST make sure that the hash browns are not frozen or they will keep the center of your casserole from cooking properly and your croissants will burn on top and still be doughy and cold in the middle. You can also trade the ham for bacon or sausage if you prefer, but you must fully cook the bacon/sausage before using it. If the taste buds in your home aren't too picky you can add bell peppers and onions to the sauce process, simply cook them while melting the butter.
