Easter Morning Breakfast Casserole

Easter breakfast is one of my favorite times to cook, but usually with church and all, it is difficult to get everything ready before services.  This wonderful dish, can be made the morning of or the day before, so all you have to do is bake!

Look for fresh berries in the store.  This is delightful with blueberries, strawberries and blackberries. The fresh berries make this dish spring fresh!  I like to use the croissants that can be purchased at the bakery, not the ones you make ahead from the can.  The canned ones are too small and soft to make this dish.

Easter Morning Breakfast Casserole

by Terri Steffes
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Ingredients (serves 8)
  • 12 croissants torn into pieces
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries or a mix of berries
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk or cream
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place croissant pieces in a 9 by 13 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle blueberries or a combination of berries.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer until well blended. Gradually add milk, beating well after each egg addition. Pour evenly over croissant pieces. Let stand 20 minutes or soak overnight.
Bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until set in center and golden brown. You may want to cover it with foil for the last 10 minutes if the tops are getting too browned.
Serve warm sprinkled with powdered sugar.

    1. Manni, I used the ones found in the bakery. Mine were pretty large, so keep that in mind when you make it. It is scrumptious!
