I can offer a breakfast strata. It's casserole-ish, but isn't really a casserole.

All the suggestions sound good, but Kansasgirl's cheese quesadillas with mixed fruit have really got my motor running. YUM.


Cinnamon Roll Strata with Apples And Pecans

4 cup cinnamon rolls, cubed (about 1-inch pieces)
2 tablespoon butter OR margarine
2 each granny smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2 inch dice
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, divided
1/3 cup golden raisins
6 each eggs
2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup pecan halves
2 teaspoon powdered sugar
1 x warm maple syrup


Directions:


Spread cinnamon roll cubes on a baking sheet and toast in a preheated 300 degree oven 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.

In heavy skillet, heat butter over medium heat until hot. Add apples, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Saute about 5 minutes, until tender and caramelized. Transfer to a plate and cool.

Spray 9x13 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or grease lightly with melted butter or margarine. Spread toasted cinnamon roll cubes in the bottom of the pan, followed by apples and raisins.

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Pour over ingredients in pan, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Toast pecans in preheated 350 degree oven 5 to 10 minutes or until golden; do not over brown. Chop coarsely.

Remove strata from refrigerator 45 minutes before baking. Uncover and sprinkle with pecans. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven about 35 minutes or until set in the middle. Sprinkle top with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup.

NOTE: Apple-pork link breakfast sausages can be added to this dish with good results. Place 1/2 pound sausage in skillet, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove from water and cool. Slice thinly. Spoon over bread cubes before proceeding with the recipe.

I couldn't pass your recipe without comment Cats.

I've copied & pasted all the recipes on this thread but the cinnamon roll strata really looks too good for breakfast.

Every 5 weeks we used to get together and have a good old slapup Classic English Breakfast with copious amounts of beer. Not too good for Southern Baptists but......

I did the Lambs Fry on special occasions. Hated the stuff myself, but followed the recipe shown to me by my mother's former sister in law's second cousin - twice removed's next door neighbor's hairdresser's mother.

The boys loved it.

brooksy, what's a lamb fry breakfast?
also, is an english breakfast like an irish breakfast? (that is eggs, bacon or sausages, black and white pudding, roasted tomato, toast, and boxtie)

This one sounds really good. I haven't made it yet but it's just moved up on my list of breakfasts to make. This would be an easy one for you to do for your family, too, Crewsk! (There's one more recipe coming in a minute...)

Orange-Pecan French Toast Casserole

Assemble the dish the night before your gathering and pop it in the oven the next morning. Be sure to serve each slice bottom-side up so the pecan mixture is on top.

1 c packed brown sugar
1/3 c butter, melted
2 Tbsp light-colored corn syrup
Cooking spray
1/3 c chopped pecans
1 tsp grated orange rind
1 c fresh orange juice
½ c fat-free milk
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large egg whites
2 large eggs
12 (1” thick) slices French bread (about 1 lb)

Combine the brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup; pour into a 13x9” baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over sugar mixture.

Combine rind and next 7 ingredients (rind through eggs), stir with a whisk. Arrange bread slices over pecans in dish; pour egg mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Carefully turn bread slices over to absorb excess egg mixture. Let stand at room temperature 20 minutes. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes or until lightly browned.
