Apple Breakfast Casserole
I love one dish breakfast recipes. Feeding breakfast to a group or even to your family is usually last on the list of meals to prepare, but it’s an essential meal none the less.
I love how the apple slices look on the top of the casserole so you know what’s inside. You could slip some in a second layer between the batter, but for this version I just put the apples on top.
This is a moist and fluffy breakfast casserole. The apple breakfast casserole uses yogurt to keep it super moist.
And the brown sugar give is a great flavor.
Not to mention the spices.
The recipe calls for ginger and I know that’s an ingredient that’s not always on hand, however I’d try to make this with the ginger. It’s such a unique flavor that it’s hard to replace.
While I haven’t made this recipe ahead of time, I think it would do well if you made it the night before and refrigerated it, then baked it in the morning. I love breakfast casseroles that I can make the night before to save time.
Try it and let me know what you think.
