Meatless Monday: Egg + Goat Cheese Breakfast Casserole


Egg and Goat Cheese Breakfast Casserole with Spinach, Kale and Mushrooms! {Gluten Free, Vegetarian}

 Happy Meatless Monday!  Since it’s the day after Mother’s Day, I figured I would share a breakfast casserole recipe that I made to bring with me yesterday for my family’s get together! 

Every year we start Mother’s Day by gathering at my Grandmother’s for a brunch.  Since my family is rather large, we all bring something to share and this year I brought this egg, goat cheese, spinach, kale and mushroom breakfast casserole.  It was pretty simple to make the day ahead and just reheat there which is awesome because our entire day is pretty jammed packed with things-to-do. 

After celebrating with my grandmother and filling our bellies up with yummy foods, we headed to my in-laws to do our share of celebrating with them.  The afternoon was spent eating more food and spending sometime outside enjoying the unseasonably nice weather.

 We even spotted this Robin’s egg nest and watch Mama Bird hovering around the nest which I thought was quite appropriate for Mother’s Day. :)

Eventually a large storm rolled in and threatened our fun so we retreated inside for dessert then finally made our way home! 

It really was the perfect day and such a nice way just to spend quality time with my kids, their grandparents and my grandmother which all started with this yummy breakfast casserole!

Those robin eggs are so cool. It's been forever since I've seen a nest! Happy Mother's Day Annmarie. Breakfast Casseroles are great for holidays, I use them all the time on Easter and Thanksgiving. One less thing to fuss with. I need to start making them not just for holidays!

That is so lovely that you all planted azaleas (my favorite) and even found a robin's egg nest! The color of those eggs is amazing. So happy you had such a great weekend! And though you may have cooked--it was indeed easy and delicious!
