Sunday Broccoli-Mushroom Egg Bake

I love breakfast, and I really appreciate the value that a large egg bake creates for Brent and me during a busy week. On a typical work-week morning, I spend anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes preparing breakfast for Brent and myself. Most of those mornings, one or both of us has to run out the door with that food in a to-go container, destined to eat in the car or at the office, rather than sitting down at our kitchen table to enjoy it and each other’s company.

This Sunday Broccoli-Mushroom Egg Bake, and others like it, often change that. Not only is it easy to make and delicious, it saves me time morning after morning as the week progresses. When there’s a breakfast casserole available, it takes me just a couple of minutes to pack up a piece for Brent and myself so I can sleep in an extra few minutes. Or, even better, Brent and I can actually take 10 minutes to eat together before starting our busy days.

Whip this up on Sunday morning, enjoy it, and save the left overs to make your work-week morning routine a little less hectic. We hope you enjoy it!
