Hawaiian Breakfast Casserole
Hawaiian Breakfast Casserole is heavenly. Really. Don’t you just love King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls? These sweet rolls have always been some of my favorites for quite a while. I love making sliders out of them. They’re great to serve with soups, main dishes or salads. No matter how we serve them, they’re fantastic accompaniments to any meal. I decided to use some of my favorite rolls in a delicious Hawaiian Breakfast Casserole. It turned out to be a real treat.
I hope everyone had a Happy Easter. It’s a shame I didn’t get this recipe posted up before today because this would have made an excellent breakfast casserole for yesterday. Still, consider putting this on your Mother’s Day menu, instead!
Hawaiian Breakfast Casserole is layered with King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, ham, pineapple, red and green bell peppers, onions and cheese. Then it’s topped with eggs and milk that bake up into a scrumptious souffle-style casserole to die for. The sweet rolls and pineapple add a sweet touch to offset the savory flavors of the cheese, ham, peppers and onions. The outcome is breathtaking and marvelous.
I was asked to provide breakfast for a Ladies’ Conference at our church for the last weekend in February. I had this recipe rumbling around in my brain for a while and knew I wanted to try it. But Dallas weather can be crazy in the winter. One day you may have an ice storm and the next day it’s 40 or 50 degrees melting all the ice and snow.
While I originally planned to serve this for a Saturday breakfast to our ladies, we were iced in that day. So, I ended up serving it to our whole church on Sunday instead. Hawaiian Breakfast Casserole was very highly regarded and enjoyed by all.
If you’re looking for a fabulous breakfast casserole to make for Easter (perhaps next Easter), Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday or special occasion, I can’t recommend Hawaiian Breakfast Casserole highly enough. It’s so delicious you will find yourself going back for seconds, and thirds….
