Breakfast Bread Casserole

Background Story

A few days ago, I decided to make two of what I call a breakfast bread casserole.  Sometimes I get in the mood of mixing different ingredients together to see how they come out, based upon several other meals that I cooked that were similar.  This one turned out even better than I thought.  I love the challenge of tweaking recipes to accommodate my daughter, who is vegan.  What I realized is that there was not a whole lot of substitutions to make for this recipe.  Instead of buying vegan and non-vegan bread, you can just use vegan bread, and call it a day.  The meat and cheese are major substitutes of course.  The only other substitute is using one tablespoon of flaxseed meal, mixed with two and half tablespoons of water in a bowl, per egg requirement.  This is also a great substitute for baking, and if you are like me, and you have to watch the cholesterol for health reasons.  Have a blessed week in the Lord!  Happy cooking!

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Psalms 34: 1-8, KJV
