Finding a healthy and delicious breakfast that does not contain gluten or dairy can be challenging. Most breakfasts contain one if not both of these ingredients. I have to say that finding safe breakfast alternatives after my celiac and casein intolerance diagnosis was a challenge. I usually had a bowl of cereal with fruit or a piece of toast with peanut butter and ran out the door to begin my day.
With cereals and peanut butter toast being out of the question (oh how I miss you Cinnamon Toast Crunch), I did not know what I was going eat in the mornings. I like eggs, and I would usually make myself a veggie omelette or pancakes on the weekends, however, this was something that I could not do everyday because I am NOT a morning person. I enjoy my sleep and do not like having to wake up any earlier than I already have to.
The idea to create this casserole came from my mom, who always made a quiche on Sundays and had the rest as her breakfast for the week. I was inspired to do the same thing and instead of a quiche, I ended up with a casserole and boy was it delicious! I have mentioned it before, and I will mention it again, creating and adapting recipes is one of my favorite hobbies!
I have been cooking since the age of 2 (with parental supervision of course). My mother is a phenomenal cook and since my dream in life is to be just like her, it is no wonder I find myself spending my free time in the kitchen.
