A family gathering or holidays would not be the same without a delicious breakfast casserole, just like this Herbed Stuffing Sausage Casserole.

They are a staple of my house, and I hope it will become a staple of yours as well.

This is easy, tasty and a perfect bake for a big family breakfast.

I might add brunch because we do not rise early as some might assume. We like to sleep in when we break start and stay up late.

Since my kids are on the winter break I recreated one that I made over Thanksgiving.

Herbed Stuffing Sausage Casserole

We really love casseroles so I always make different once just to test them out.

I made casseroles with ground beef, turkey sausages, biscuits, stuffing, spinach, and mushrooms.

It is just great to be inventive when you have endless possibilities.

For this particular one, you could use store-bought stuffing which I used over Thanksgiving, however, this time I made my own.

Also, like any other casserole, you could make this ahead. The night before would be just fine. Some foods are great when you make them the next day.

Herbed Stuffing Sausage Casserole

With that being said, in this case, if you have a lot of food to cook for the holiday table it is just easier to make ahead.

It just makes sense so that is why these casseroles are not only tasty but help us, hostess to serve hot, tasty breakfasts or meals in no time.

Herbed Stuffing Sausage Casserole
Yield: Serves 6

Herbed Stuffing Sausage Casserole

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Holidays would not be the same without breakfast or brunch casseroles. They are a staple of my house, and I hope it will staple of yours as well. This is easy, tasty and a perfect bake for a big family breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pack cooked frozen breakfast sausage links (10ct)
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cups cubed bread, preferably a bit stale (2-3 days old)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cup half and half
  • 4 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 4 ounces shredded mild cheddar

Instructions

  1. Defrost breakfast sausages if they are frozen, slice them.
    In the skillet or frying pan add oil then saute sausage with chopped onion and celery. Breakfast Sausage is already cooked so it should not take too long just to brown it up a bit, 2-3 minutes at medium-high heat. If you get uncooked sausage, then follow directions and saute longer until cooked through.
  2. Grease deeper baking (casserole) dish, 13 by a 9-inch or simular with unsalted butter and add cubed bread and sausage mixture.
  3. Sprinkle over it black pepper, salt, and all the herbs. Then toss to coat nicely.
  4. To that add half of the shredded cheese and mix it with everything. I like shredding cheese myself but you could use already shredded cheese.
  5. Mix eggs with half and a half and pour half over then mix a bit to coat, then add the other half of egg mixture and slightly press it down.
  6. Add the rest of the shredded cheese and again press it a bit down.
  7. Cover and place the casserole in the fridge until ready to bake and serve, up to overnight.
    If baking immediately, let the casserole sit for 15 minutes before putting in the oven. This will give the bread a chance to absorb the liquid mixture.
  8. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes. Slightly cover with aluminum foil if the top begins to brown too quickly.
  9. Wait for 5-10 minutes before serving, and garnish with freshly chopped parsley if desired.

Chaffles – Low Carb Keto Waffles

Chaffles – Low Carb Keto Waffles

Chaffles - Low Carb Keto Waffles

If you are following a low carb lifestyle, then you probably heard of or made these yummy keto-approved waffles.

What are Chaffles-Low Carb Keto Waffles?

I know, by the name you would never tell what it is. I have no idea who gave the name. So Chaffles are waffles made with only shredded cheese and eggs.

You can add different herbs to enchant the flavor, but that is pretty much it. For the best results, I would have to suggest shredding the cheese yourself.

Chaffles - Low Carb Keto Waffles

You will still have marvelous waffles using pre-shredded cheese, but if you do it yourself it is honestly so much better.

I love making these when I am craving a good sandwich, or when I want to pack my kids a low carb lunch. Above all, they are just so tasty and easy to make, plus you only need 2 ingredients which most of us have in our fridge.

It is so easy to upgrade them like add a bit of almond flour, dash of sugar and vanilla to create a tasty low carb sweet waffles.

Although I prefer these savory over sweet because I’ve seen them and I really do not like the idea.

With that being said I have been testing other keto recipes that are full proof and absolutely amazing. I just don’t know which one to post, chocolate or regular. Ahh! Sweet decisions.

I used my regular size waffle maker, which is just fine. I believe any waffle maker would do. My kids really loved these and my husband asked for more.

Well, what’s not to like right? As my daughter, Anna, would say, it is a cheesy omelet made in a waffle form. Oh, and so delightful that I am so sure that you guys going to love.

So this is pretty basic keto breakfast or brunch. Bacon, eggs, and cheese. I should’ve made a few sunny side eggs ’cause I would love it with this. However, this was absolutely perfect.

I served it with some sour cream and just for the presentation, I added crumbles of feta cheese. It just looked like it belonged there.

Wouldn’t you agree? I just loved this plate so much. It hit the spot!

Did you guys ever make Chaffles? Please share it with me in the comments.

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

These tasty, moist and beautiful Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins are absolutely amazing for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

We were quite impressed by the gluten-free all-purpose flour and the way these muffins turned out. Yes, my family tried to eat gluten-free most of the time if we are not doing keto.

I am not saying that pizza or regular pasta never finds its way to our bellies but you know what I mean?! Gluten-free makes us feel better inside and out.

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

These tasty muffins are measured, tested and retested so you can make them without any issues. Seriously, you guys they are super easy.

So, if you have any ripe bananas that should be used just to make these yummy muffins. Also, I wrote in the notes alternative options.

No, you do not have to use gluten-free four or lactose-free milk, or nuts in that matter, just use what you have. All-purpose flour, regular sugar or whole milk and butter would do exactly the same purpose.

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

You can even shred some zucchini and carrots and use soaked raisins. Oh, possibilities are really endless when you start to play with recipes. Sometimes it works, and hey from time to time it just does not.

These are just wonderful with a cup of tea or coffee. I do not breakfast eater but these hit the spot every time I snack on it with my afternoon coffee.

step by step
step by step 2

Make sure BANANAS are ripe because they are so much better. Peel and mash with the back of the fork. Also, they keep muffins moist as well.

If you have any other substitute for an egg then our ar more than welcome to use it. I love adding eggs into my banana bread or muffins. Coconut oil, lactose-free milk because we use that milk.

step by step 3
muffin recipe

I believe it is really important to measure ingredients for baking. So invest in a good scale. I have a cup scale and I am in love with it. I have similar, so I am linking it from my amazon shop.

Measuring Cup Scale with LCD Display Kitchen Jug Digital Food Liquid Measure Containers Tools

Like I said in the recipe, you may use any type of nuts. I used almonds that I crushed in my blender. Walnuts are wonderful as well as pecans.

If you have nut allergies than skip it and maybe use dried fruit soaked in hot water or liqueur. However, it is not necessary. You can also add some chopped apples.

muffins

Yes, you can make 12 smaller or regular size muffins or perhaps a loaf although you will have to watch on how long you have to bake it. Probably lower temperature at 350F for 45 minutes.

The warm and tasty aroma while they are baking. Well, I have a feeling you guys going to love it.

I would suggest to let these cool completely, about 30 to 45 minutes eating. Okay, I know you want to eat them right away but you will just make them mushy so wait for the best results.

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

DRY INGREDIENTS

  • 150-160g GF all-purpose flour
  • 7g cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 60g sugar (5-6 tablespoons), I used Truvia sweetener
  • Dash of salt (1/8 teaspoon)
  • 85g Nuts (3 oz); almond, walnuts, pecans, cashews, etc.

WET INGREDIENTS

  • 400-500g ripe bananas (14-16 ounces), mash
  • 5 tablespoon coconut oil (67-70g)
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2-3 tablespoons Lactose-free whole milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (190°C)
  2. Measure and prep everything. I mesh bananas and add wet ingredients to bananas right after measuring dry ingredients.
  3. Add wet to dry mixture and combine it together. Lastly, add some type of nuts. You do not have to but it tastes really good. Also, you may add chocolate chips instead. I used crushed almonds but you may use walnuts, pecans or any other on hand. READ NOTES
  4. Now grease a bit muffin cups and add 3/4 of the muffin cup with the batter. Never add all the way to the edge because it will go over so just fill 3/4 and allow these muffins to rise while baking.
  5. Bake at the PREHEATED oven. You know your oven the best, you can bake it at 400F or 375F,, between 22 and 25 minutes. IF the muffins are smaller please check with the toothpick after 18-20 minutes of baking.

Notes

ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS

Regular milk, all-purpose flour, sugar.

Unsalted butter instead of coconut oil.

Dutch cocoa instead of raw cocoa powder.

You can make it nut-free and use dried fruit soaked in water or liqueur.

There are different types of gluten-free flour, I used one from Bob Red Mill Click HERE
