Hi guys!

For several years in a row, I had a house full of family for Thanksgiving.  Most of the crowd was also staying with us for several days, so I had to think about what to feed people for more than just the Thanksgiving meal.  That is where this beautifully easy and delicious vegetarian breakfast casserole comes into play.  It is a perfect vegetarian crockpot recipe because you put it together the night before, and in the morning you have a perfectly cooked complete crowd-pleasing meal that tastes amazing.  It is hearty enough for the meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike.

You repeat those three layers twice and then whisk together a simple egg and milk mixture.  Then pour the eggs on top of all the superbly breakfast-y goodness.

    Any suggestions for a strict vegetarian who doesn’t eat eggs? He does cheese and butter as long as the cheese is made without animal rennet. This sounds so amazing!

    This sounds so tasty. I will have to try this some lazy weekend.

    Looks amazing! My only issue is the onion part as I have a nasty onion allergy but it’s no problem to simply leave them off! Thanks for the share Julie!

    Looks like a good idea.
    We have a family member with an allergy to mushrooms, but aside from that, it appears yummy.

    I needed this when my family was here recently. I actually don’t eat eggs (I’m crazy.) I stick to oatmeal during the week, and occasionally pancakes on the weekends.

    • JulieWunder November 7, 2014 at 9:50 pm - Reply

      I eat oatmeal and cereal during the week too. This is great for when the crowds come back!

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2014 at 2:15 pm - Reply

      oh cool! Should I add it to this week or wait until next week? I have lots of yummy vegetarian goodies coming out for Thanksgiving planning!

  17. Dan Steadman November 6, 2014 at 8:13 am - Reply

    looks great!!!! Can you make that and take it to Tryon next weekend? Favorite breakfast food (other than cereal) has to be pancakes

  18. Jenny November 6, 2014 at 6:29 am - Reply

    Aaaand, now I’m hungry. Yum!!

    Julie: this sounds yummy but do you mean high for four hours and low for eight hours? Just wondering…

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2014 at 7:20 am - Reply

      Yes absolutely! Sorry for the confusion and thank you for your help. It is fixed now.

  20. Debbie Bowen November 6, 2014 at 5:58 am - Reply

    Cooking times? Low for 4 hrs or high for 8 hrs. Shouldn’t that be reversed?

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2014 at 7:20 am - Reply

      Yes it should! Thanks for catching it. It’s fixed and sorry for the confusion.

    Who knew making a breakfast casserole could be so simple! To answer your question – my favorite breakfast food will always be some sort of egg dish or maybe waffles. It’s a close call!

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2014 at 7:21 am - Reply

      Yeah, tough to choose when you throw waffles in the mix. 🙂

  22. Blane Sherer November 6, 2014 at 5:11 am - Reply

    That looks like a winner.
