Veggie Breakfast Casserole

No weekend is complete without a little brunchin’.  While a bottomless, boozy brunch at your favorite hot spot is one way to go, making an equally delicious brunch at home can do the trick too. Breakfast casseroles are a tried and true morning dish, as well as a certified crowd pleaser. Throw a girls brunch at your place with this Veggie Breakfast Casserole as the piΓ¨ce de rΓ©sistance!

Ingredients:
– 4-6 whole eggs
– 4-5 slices of bread, cut into cubes (I used french bread)
– 1 1/2 cup of grated cheese
– 1 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
– 1 cup kale
– 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
– 1/4 cup diced onions
– 1/2 tsp. black pepper
– 1/2 tsp. tabasco
– 1/4 tsp. sea salt

Prep time: 15 minutes – Cook time: 40 minutes – Total time: 55 minutes 
Serves: 4

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and kale (torn into large pieces). Cook for about 2 minutes,  until kale is slightly wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Then add milk and cheese, mix together until well combined.

4. Carefully mix in bread pieces until all bread is moistened. Stir gently as not to over mix and disintegrate the bread.

6. Pour the mixture into a baking pan – I used a 9″x9″ pan. Then sprinkle a dash of crushed red peppers (for an extra kick) and shredded cheese on top of mixture.
