“If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child.” ~Linda Sunshine
Sunday mornings are busy mornings for our family. It’s the one day out of the week my two homeschoolers have to get up early. We have little ones to dress for church, Sunday School lessons to finalize, breakfast goodies to bring to church. It’s a lot of work.
But I love Sunday mornings. I have four daughters and whenever they put on their Sunday best, I am always certain they’re the most beautiful people in the world. My daughters are lovely. Watching them help each other pick out clothes, apply make-up, arrange their hair and accessories blesses my heart. Sisters can be the sweetest gift from God.
Preparing a breakfast casserole on Sunday mornings is a great way to feed my family a satisfying breakfast that will carry them through church without rumbling bellies. This is a dish we often bring to Sunday School to share with our church family.
Bacon Breakfast Casserole
- 5 slices of bacon, cooked crisp, chopped
- About 2.5 cups frozen tator tots
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- salt and pepper
Cook bacon slices until crisp. Set on paper towel to drain excess grease. Chop.
Lightly coat a large casserole dish with cooking spray. Arrange a layer of frozen tator tots.
Sprinkle bacon pieces over the tator tots. (That was the most delicious sentence I think I’ve ever typed.) And add shredded cheese.
This casserole can be placed in the refrigerator overnight at this stage. The best thing about breakfast casseroles is setting them up the night before. It’s wonderful to wake up, add a few final touches and serve a hearty breakfast to your family.
When ready to complete, blend eggs, milk, salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Then pour egg mixture over the casserole. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes, until browned on top and the eggs are cooked through.
For us, Sundays are all about sharing, service, and sisters.
