Apple Fritter Breakfast Casserole

I wasn’t born in Texas. In fact, I lived in Utah up until 2013 – most of that in northern Utah with lots of snow and mountains. That being said, I really feel that I was MEANT to be a Texan – I absolutely LOVE it here! The people are amazing, there’s so much to do, and although the summers are a bit too hot for my liking I’m overall a big fan of the weather. I plan to never leave! There’s also plenty of great foods and things grown right here, such as Lonestar Eggs, which I use in a lot of my cooking – like for this Apple Fritter Breakfast Casserole!

I was way nervous when we moved to Texas, away from most of our family and not sure about the area AT ALL. We quickly fell in love with it, though! The traffic may take some getting use to, but I love how we’re close enough to pretty much anything we could want to do, but there’s plenty of places to just get away from it all, too. Plus these southern manners of ‘yes, ma’am’ or ‘no, sir’ are fabulous – my kiddos better pick that up!

This breakfast casserole I whipped up with some of my Lonestar Eggs from Walmart was part of my deal with my kids – less cereal for breakfast so they don’t get super hungry before lunch at school. In exchange, they won’t take forever eating breakfast as we’re racing out the door. Sounds fair, right? I just needed a few more yummy, and preferably make-the-night-before, breakfasts to replace our regular ol’ cereal. We got a winner with this one!

Ingredients for Casserole

  • 4 packages refrigerated biscuits (I use the cheap ones, they work great)
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 3 Lonestar Eggs, large or extra large
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

Directions for Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F. Spray or line a 9×11 baking dish, set aside.
  2. Take the refrigerated biscuits out of the cans and flatten a bit. Lay half in a layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Whisk the heavy cream, applesauce, eggs and cinnamon until creamy. Pour half over the layer of biscuits. Scoop half the apple/brown sugar mixture over that layer.
  4. Top with the remaining, flattened biscuits, then the rest of the egg mixture, then the rest of the apple/sugar mix.
  5. Bake at 375 Degrees F for 25 minutes. Allow to cool a bit and enjoy!

This was a huge hit with my apple fritter-loving family! Hubby couldn’t WAIT to try it when I told him what I was making – and the yummy smell while it cooked had us all hungry!
