Breakfast Casserole Recipe (from leftovers)

An inexpensive breakfast item that I enjoy is grits.  They’re easy to make, very inexpensive, and filling.  Since grits are so inexpensive, it is one of the breakfast items I occasionally make for the youth group.  The problem is, sometimes they eat up all of the grits and sometimes there is half of a pot left over.

One day I had made a pot of grits for the youth and for some reason that day, half of the grits were left.  I decided not to let the grits go to waste.  I figured I should be able to do something with them.  I came home and created a breakfast casserole using grits, scrambled eggs, and sausage gravy.

Last week, I had some grits, sausage, and scrambled eggs left over and decided to make another breakfast casserole.  This time I had just a small amount left of each, so I made it in this small oven-safe Pyrex glass bowl.

By the way, my kids really like this dish!   🙂

Since this is made with leftovers, there is no exact amount of ingredients. 

Breakfast Casserole

  • prepared grits
  • scrambled eggs
  • breakfast meat, optional (cooked and diced sausage, bacon, or ham)
  • sausage gravy or white gravy
  • shredded cheese, optional

Spray your dish with cooking spray. Layer the ingredients as shown above and bake at 350F until hot. 

Here is a recipe for sausage gravy.  I needed much less so I just used 1 cup of milk and 1-2 tablespoons of flour.

What is your favorite recipe to make with leftovers?
