Go-To Breakfast Recipes

Remember this post from a few weeks ago? Well I promised I would share the two recipes that I made for the brunch that I hosted before graduation but completely forgot, so here they are! To refresh your memory,   I invited all my family, friends, and their families to a brunch at my apartment the morning of graduation. I had never hosted any more than just my close friends at my place so I wanted to make sure the food I made was going to be delicious but also easy to make since I also had to worry about getting ready that morning! I found these two recipes through Pinterest (my go to for recipes and party hosting tips!) and they seemed perfect for the occasion! They were ridiculously easy to make and impossible to screw up! So many of my guests RAVED about the food! Breakfast has always been my all time favorite meal of the day so I am extremely happy to have two new recipes to make again!

Everyone chowing down! I miss my little apartment...


I made two different types of frittatas because one of my good friends is a vegetarian, plus its always nice to have options for people! I chose the recipe because they were made in muffin tins so that they were perfect for guests to serve themselves and also were the perfect portion! Unfortunately though, I forgot to buy a second muffin tin so I just made the sausage one in a pan instead and then cut it up in squares for serving purposes. It still worked great, I would just suggest cooking it a little less if you choose to make it in a pan. The other great thing about this recipe is that you can choose any ingredients you want and get a little creative with it! I just made up these combinations of ingredients off of omelets that I have had in the past at restaurants! This is the recipe that I used technically, but I didn't use the broccoli, vegetable oil, or baking powder and it still turned out great and looked just like the picture! Also, I made this recipe again a few days ago just for myself and chose to use four whole eggs and seven egg whites (same amount of milk and same cooking time) to make it a little healthier and again, it tasted great! They warm up wonderfully too!

For the French Toast Casserole, I used this Paula Deen recipe and made it exactly as the recipe says except I don't like nuts so I omitted the pecans in the topping. I have always wanted to make bread pudding and this sounded very similar so I thought it would be delicious... and it was!!! This was by far the most popular among everyone! Next time I make it, I think diced apples would be AMAZING in it!!
