This fruit breakfast casserole is packed with a mix of fresh and frozen berries over a coconut milk bread base. This recipe is the perfect amount for serving a small crowd.
Fruit Breakfast Casserole
Do you usually skip making breakfast casseroles unless you have guests over? Casseroles are hearty and filling and made to serve a crowd, but sometimes I want to enjoy the same yummy dish I would serve my friends, but I don’t want eat the same breakfast all week long.
Instead of making a meal intended to serve 8-10 like this cheesy overnight ham egg casserole, make this fruit breakfast casserole in a 8 x 10 – inch pan for 4-6 people!
This casserole a mix of frozen and fresh fruit. The base breading is flavored with coconut milk, coconut extract, and topped over a mix of butter and coconut palm sugar adding just the right amount of sweetness!
Enjoy this with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or add some fresh whipped cream!
Easy Breakfast Casserole For Guests
When entertaining, you want to spend as much time with your guests as possible, so preparing meals in advance is the way to go.
This breakfast casserole along with oven cooked bacon is one of my go-to recipes that can be put together ahead of time, and baked before serving.
My bestie, Sherri and her family enjoyed this during a short weekend visit.
I’ve mentioned Sherri in this Celebration Cake post. We’ve been buddies since the 7th grade, so we always have lots to chat about, but don’t see each other often enough!
Easy Make-Ahead Breakfast Casserole
This casserole can easily be made in advance with day old bread, which is the way I like to prepare a breakfast casserole when entertaining.
A smaller casserole can be assembled in the morning, which is the way I prepare it for my family.
For either method you will need to add the frozen fruit (partially thawed) right before baking.
Add the fresh fruit before serving!
