Here are breakfast casseroles that are not only simple but also adaptable to your taste. For example, you can use any bread (whole grain, sourdough, egg, etc). Try adding shredded orange zest to the Company French Toast. Add diced vegetables such as peppers, onions and tomatoes to the egg casserole or souffle. Use Swiss, Muenster, pepper jack or another favourite cheese. Replace bread cubes in the souffle with hash-brown cut potatoes. There’s no end to the possibilities.
