I don’t know about you, but I find breakfast to be the most difficult meal to get on the table. I either do a great job and we all sit down to eat together or we’re all scattered and likely grabbing a bowl of cereal of stopping by the drive-thru.

But once I realized the issue isn’t what I do in the mornings, but rather what I have prepped before hand, I understood that getting breakfast ready can really be a breeze.

It all starts with prep. Even in the fanciest of restaurant kitchens cooking begins with preparation of ingredients. The French call it, Mise en Place, or putting in place. By simply chopping, pre-cooking, and organizing ingredients the night before, you can pull together these casseroles quickly, and efficiently in the morning. You can even prep those ahead of time in the evening, refrigerate overnight, and simply bake in the morning. 

Then, while the breakfast casseroles bake, you can get dressed for the day.
