What’s For Dinner? Cheesy Breakfast Bake

  • Sharebar

Yesterday as I was racking my brain to come up with a few recipes this week, my friend Shannon called and mentioned that her family loved Kraft’s Cheesy Breakfast Bake Casserole.  Since I had all the ingredients right in my fridge (and they’re all super deals at Publix this week), I decided we’d try it out too. :)


Our family loves having breakfast for dinner, and it’s a great way to pinch a few pennies as it’s usually not quite as expensive a traditional meal.  Serve this with some fresh fruit salad and Raisin Bran Muffins (or stockpiled Cinnamon Rolls), and you’ve got dinner tonight!

    I have to tell you that my 3 year old got a great compliment from his daycare teacher today. She said he had the most perfect cutting technique, right on the lines she said. I responded with, “of course, he helps me clip coupons”…. she was kind of confused by that…lol

  2. Kelly says:

    Can you use the Target coupon, manufacturer’s coupon, and Publix coupon at the same time for the Kraft cheese?

  3. Leigh says:

    Actually, I was able to use the Target Kraft cheese coupon ($1.50 off 2) AND the Publix coupon ($1.50 off 2 – reads “retailer coupon”) together today, but I was told I could NOT use a manufacturer’s coupon with the Publix coupon. (I had never noticed the “retailer coupon” designation before & was hoping it would be considered like a Publix store coupon. I asked if I could use a manufacturer’s coupon along with the Publix coupon & use all three – Target, manu, & Publix “retailer” coupons – but I was told a “retailer coupon” is the same as a “manufacturer coupon.”) Still, I can hardly argue over 50 cents per 2-cup package for Kraft cheese!!!

    Just made this tonight with some leftover Easter ham. Another winning recipe from this site! YAY! I actually made a half batch (and just made the other 4 crescent rolls as rolls for my son to eat with plain ham as he isn’t an egg eater). Now, I’m wishing I had made a full recipe in a 13×9 pan so I’d have had leftovers! c:

    I didn’t add the salt (it isn’t listed on the Kraft site’s recipe) and used their suggestion of the Colby and Monterey Jack blend (since that’s what I had on hand) for the cheeses.

    Thanks for this recipe and for reposting a current link to it, as I wouldn’t have thought to go looking here.
