What’s For Dinner? Cheesy Breakfast Bake

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!

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

  3. 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.
