Breakfast Girl's Night

Last night was girl's night at my niece's house. Our theme was breakfast and pjs...it was so much fun!!! Of course there were Mimosas... this is Dana and Drea popping open the champagne over the fence...I'm not even telling you what is on the other side of the fence, but the goal is to get the cork over the fence haha!

This is the Cinnamon Rolls rising, I just liked the way they looked. Green Chili Casserole, Cinnamon Rolls, and French Toast Casserole. The Green Chili Casserole seemed to be the big hit of the night, but I could have seriously eaten that whole pan of French Toast Casserole.... YUM!

French Toast Casserole
For the casserole:
1 loaf french bread ( I cut off all the crust)
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Topping:
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
2 Tablespoons dark corn syrup
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped (I also toasted)
Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Fill with bread cubes so the dish is completely covered to the top.
In a large bowl mix effs, milk, half and half, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour over top of bread mixture. I pressed the bread down slightly to make sure it all soaked in. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
For topping: Mix all ingredients. Pour over top of bread mixture. Bake until puffed and golden. About 40 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Green Chili Casserole
7 ounce can green chilis, whole
1/2 pound Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
2 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
Arrange chilis on the bottom of a buttered 1 1/2 quart casserole dish, you may need to split them open. cover with shredded cheese. Beat eggs until fluffy. Add flour slowly and the salt. Beat until mixed. Pour over chili-cheese mixture. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven 45-50 minutes. Till brown on top and casserole is firm.


  1. I definitely would love to try the green chile casserole. That would be right up my alley and it sounds so addictive. Sounds like it was a fun and delicious evening!
