Mini Sunday Brunch Casseroles

Mini Sunday brunch casseroles are such a jam and life savor, especially over holidays.

I know it has been a weird year, and most have kids still at home, so these casseroles are fantastic at any time of the year.

Sometimes it is hard to get out of the comfort zone. Well, I know because I am one of those people. For the last six months, I feel like I have been making the same meals over and over again.

Just look at these mini casseroles; they are simple, portion-sized, and versatile because you can literally use any protein in them as well as a veggie.

Also, you can make them vegetarian or packed with bacon or sausages.

Mini Sunday Brunch Casseroles

I am always thinking of people that are plant-based. Well, I don’t like it when people are judging us for eating meat, and I am most certainly not going to judge our vegetarian friends.

So, I always try to give an option so everyone has the opportunity to make and enjoy my recipes.

Anyhow, since I got that off my chest, let us move on.

The casserole is such a perfect dish to please a crowd. They are really well-loved. To be honest, I love using leftover chicken from time to time or after Thanksgiving turkey.

However in this case I used Italian sausage, peppers, and Southern potato hash, which is basically diced potatoes.

Add some cheese and eggs and you will be a queen or a king of brunch.

My family much like me love a combination of spicy Italian sausage with onion, papers, and potatoes so this is what I use most of the time.

Mini Sunday Brunch Casseroles

I have made breakfast or brunch casseroles for school parties and for holiday gatherings for many years, especially when my kids were small and still liked me combing to school celebrations.

Sometimes I use breakfast sausages or chopped up bacon, and some other times I would even mix in cooked bread or biscuits.

Nevertheless, if you wish to keep this low carb I would stay away from the bread, of course, potatoes are not keto-friendly, so I would suggest maybe using roasted cauliflower.

You can check my Breakfast Casserole, which was always a huge hit among kids and adults.

Whatever you are using people seem to love it. Now for plan-based, I would suggest adding either vegan sausages or mushrooms or both.

Step by step

Anyhow, I hope you guys try making these Mini Sunday Brunch Casseroles because I know you will love them.

Recipes for breakfast
Yield: Makes 8

Mini Sunday Brunch Casseroles

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Mini Sunday brunch casseroles are such a jam and life savor, especially over holidays.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1.5 cup frozen Southern potato hush, or 1.5 cup diced potatoes (one and a half)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1/2 lbs (220g) Italian sausage, mild or hot, casing removed
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, Mexican blend cheese works well
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 8 eggs, mixed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipped cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened

Instructions

  1. Slightly fry southern potato hush until soft and edge crispy. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. then set aside.
  2. Stir fry pepper, onion, and celery. Take it out of the skillet and place next to potatoes hush.
  3. Cook Italian sausage. Break into pieces while cooking. When it is cooked through, combine potatoes with pepper, onion, and celery, sprinkle dried parsley. Add cheese and mix it all together.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F.
  5. Butter each ramekin with unsalted butter.
  6. Mix eggs with salt and black pepper.
  7. Depending on the size of your ramekins, add a meat-veggie mixture a bit less than 3/4 of the ramekin, then pour eggs over. Take a spoon or a butter knife and poke through so the eggs could coat the "filling". I add eggs almost to the edge however you need to give a bit more room so the eggs could cook and rise.
  8. Place ramekins on the large cookie sheet pan or similar and bake for 23-25 minutes.
  9. Allow them to cool down for a couple of minutes before serving.

Notes

You can use any meat. Just make sure to cook it before.

Also, you may use any veggie of your choice as well as cheese. Mozzarella or crumbled queso fresco would be perfect as well. Feta Cheese could be used but watch on how much salt you will use. A pinch or two is probably all you would need.

    fruit syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut oil stir the mixture in between each
    ingredient addition.
  2. Using your fingers mix until it comes together into a sticky dough.

  2. Distribute fruit evenly on the top of the sweet filling.
  3. Dust with a bit of Confectioner Swerve and garnish with fresh mint.
  4. Allow to rest and chill in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • You may use any sweetener that you prefer.

    as unsalted chopped almonds, and
    PB2 Almond Powder The outcome will be
    slightly different but nonetheless very tasty.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs in a buttery sauce are so addictive, delicious, and easy to make.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

I partnered with Minerva Dairy to show you how I create this recipe using their delicious butter.

6 generations of Butter Makers, Minerva Dairy is America’s oldest family-owned creamery. Also, this delightful butter is 85% butterfat, high-quality made from pasture-raised cow milk.

I would not only recommend this butter for sautéing, or to make your sauce richer, but for baking and just spreading on your morning toast as well. It is most definitely lusciously delicious! I must admit the Minerva Dairy Butter is one of the best.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Nonetheless, these spicy meatballs are fantastic when you serve them as an appetizer with ranch or blue cheese dressing, and some crunchy vegetables. Also, you could make the best meatball sandwich. We tried it and fell in love with each bite. Also, if you cannot find ground chicken you can substitute with ground turkey.

I tried it and it was just as good!

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish is easy, simple, and satisfies all the craving for fish and chips.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

 

You could defiantly make thicker French fries or steak fries, which reminds me the most of the British chips. My kids are mad about these air-fryer potatoes. These potatoes look as they should, rusting and homemade. You cannot even compare homemade to store-bought french fries.

 

Anyways, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make this fantastic classic dish, just a bit of patience, a few tools, great ingredients, and tasty fish.

 

My family loves and enjoyed fish recipes, so I was surprised to see leftovers, but I was so happy to have several pieces.

 

My youngest one and I had a fantastic brunch the next day. We make tasty sandwiches, which was extremely satisfying.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

An easy and simple recipe for Fish & Chips.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 thick cod fillets
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 egg whites, whipped
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (for the color)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 170ml dark beer (6oz)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep fryer
  • Lemon wedges and tartar sauce

Instructions

  1. Prep fish first. If the fillets are long and seem larger then slice into smaller fillets. Lay the fish fillets on a couple of kitchen towel sheets and pat dry very well. Season fish fillets with sea salt. Just a good pinch for each fillet.
  2. Add cornstarch to the plate and dip each filet on both sites into cornstarch, shake off any excess. Set aside.
  3. At this point turn the oil to heat. It should be at the oil temperature is still 350 degrees.
  4. Mix 2 egg whites with your electric mixer until you see peaks; set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, a good pinch of salt, turmeric. Mix it well to combine dry ingredients.
  6. Add beer to the flour mixture and continue mixing until you have a thick, smooth batter.
  7. Fold egg whites into the batter. Beaten egg whites give this batter its leavening strength as well as its structural quality. It forms fluffy, tender pouches around the fish.
  8. Carefully, drop each fillet into the hot oil. Fry for approximately 10 minutes, or until the batter is crisp and golden, turning the fillets from time to time with a large slotted spoon.
  9. Once cooked, remove the fillets from the hot oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  10. Transfer fish to a large baking pan, then place it into 350 degrees preheated oven. This will finish the fish and keep the beer batter crispy. This is also how you will reheat your fish. 350F for 10 to 15 minutes.
  11. Once ready, sprinkle fish of sea salt and serve with lemon slices and tartar sauce.


For the Chips:

2 pounds of potatoes

1 quart/1 liter vegetable oil (or use air fryer)

POTATOES

AIR FRIER METHOD:

  1. Cut the potatoes a bit thicker. they should look more like steak fries.
  2. Place the chips into a colander and rinse under cold running water.
  3. Pat dry potato slices and add to the air fryer basket.
  4. Cook at the pre-setting or like me at 375F for 17-20 minutes depending on potatoes, as well as air-fryer.

*You can fry them your skillet, in batches with 1/2 cup of oil, or deep fryer with 30+ oz of oil or like me, you could use your air-fryer. Note that it is not the same as deep frying but it does the job if you wish to avoid fried potatoes.

Notes

Your Questions:

Can I air fryer for the last step instead of my oven?

YES! You can certainly use your air fryer.

I don't use beer, what else I could use as a substitute?

You may use nonalcoholic beer or seltzer water.
