Mother’s Day is this weekend, so if you need to forward this to your husband, kids or whoever, go ahead and do that now! Sharing some top recipes that are perfect for Mother’s Day weekend including this amazing Croissant Sausage and Mushroom Egg Bake.
Let’s be honest, I’m probably going to be prepping some things Saturday so things go smoothly on Sunday morning. It’s mother nature, am I right? Whether you decide to make this simple egg bake the night before and have your family bake or have them do the heavy lifting. It’s super simple and versatile!
What you’ll need
This dish is really simple and can be adapted to whatever you have on hand or make vegetarian if you’d like to omit the sausage. Here is a run down of the ingredients you’ll need:
Croissants – Croissants are the perfect carb for this dish, they soak up all the egg and create such a fluffy dish. Pickup a pack from your local grocery store.
Mushrooms – I love mushrooms and their nutty and earthy flavor. They are the star in this dish, but you can absolutely swap them out for another veggie of your choice.
Breakfast sausage – We’re making this a one stop meal: eggs, veggies and meat! We enjoy pork sausage but you can sub for turkey sausage or double up on veggies.
Eggs – Eggs are the key ingredient that binds this whole dish together.
Milk + Heavy Cream – Whole milk and heavy cream really gives this dish a creamy and rich flavor. I have not tried non-dairy milk in this recipe but would love to hear if it works for you.
Cheese – I can never have enough cheese! In this case I used sharp and gouda but any cheese would be incredible. Use feta for a more Mediterranean style dish, or fontina for a milder flavor.
Let’s not reinvent the wheel my friends, I’m not talking about making homemade croissants here. Here’s what we’re going to do, pickup croissants from your local bakery or grocery store (yes, grocery store croissants are ok for this) and we’re just going to layer them with all the goodness and bake it up into a hearty and delicious dish with whatever you have on hand.
A little of this
So you don’t eat meat? That’s FINE!!!! This is a basic egg casserole so you can be COMPLETELY flexible with your ingredients. Swap your sausage for more mushrooms, or add in some peppers or broccoli. Anything goes! Here is a little guide in case you want some options.
swap more mushrooms for sausage
do less sausage and add some diced red peppers
swap mushrooms for broccoli
add in a handful of spinach while cooking up your veggies
Putting it together
The beauty of this dish is the ability to put to it together the night before, it’s actually how you want to prepare it. Giving the croissants time to soak up all the liquid will allow it to bake and fluff up.
A quick saute of onions + mushrooms + sausage
