Recipes for Conference Weekend

By Rebecca | September 30, 2008

Recently a post showed up in Young Women’s Yahoo group asking for quick and easy casseroles for General Conference weekend.  Specifically, the poster was interested in dishes that could be prepared ahead of time and then cooked or heated up for meals on Conference days.

As far as I can tell, there was one response, posted by Julia D—–.  (I don’t know how anonymous she wants to be.)  She listed three breakfast casseroles. 

Now, I have never had the privilege of either making or eating a breakfast casserole.  In my family, getting to put sugar in the oatmeal was a right fancy breakfast.  On Christmas day we would have breakfast at about noon and my Dad would fix eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, pancakes, toast, sometimes with yogurt, cottage cheese and toast.  I have more fond memories of Christmas breakfast than I do of any Christmas dinner.

Needless to say, the very idea of a breakfast casserole stuffed with yummy breakfast ingredients was enough to make my mouth water and my tummy grumble.  Add to this the fact that these were entered under the heading of “quick,” “easy,” and “freezer” and I guess I just knew all over again that these had to have come straight from heaven.

That said, I haven’t tried any of them out yet.  (I may have to go shopping, not to mention sell my kids on the idea.  They can’t bear the thought of Mom serving them anything but cold cereal for breakfast.)  But I didn’t want my inexperience to keep me from sharing them.  So go ahead and try them out.  They can’t end up much worse than lumpy, unflavored oatmeal with sour cream.  Trust me, I know.
