Best of all, the Cornbread Casserole is a complete meal in one pan. You don’t have to scramble to pull together a side dish or veggies at the last minute, since the filling is loaded with plenty of bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and corn. A small amount of leftover (or rotisserie) chicken goes a long way and adds a protein boost; or you can substitute a can of beans for the meat and create a vegetarian option. It’s cheesy, it’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s filling, it’s comforting, and it’s finished with a delicious cornbread crust!
We have this routine on Friday nights. It’s an end-of-the-week treat that makes all of us very happy (for various reasons), and it always involves pizza.
You see, we live in the middle of nowhere, so meal delivery options are non-existent (that’s right — we don’t even have a single restaurant or fast food joint that will bring food to our doorstep)! Instead, if we want to dine out, we can either drive 30-45 minutes to the nearest bigger town, or we can rely on a few little restaurants that we have in Madison for the basics. Fortunately for our pizza-loving family, two of the local options specialize in Italian food AND do a nice carry-out business.
And when it comes to a more simplified approach to cooking and feeding my family, the baked omelet has been an absolute favorite around here. I can spend 5 minutes on a weekend whisking together some ingredients, and then I have a quick and nourishing breakfast to get me through the week. I just keep it in the refrigerator and reheat the squares in the microwave for about 30 seconds when I need a quick meal.
The monkey bread comes together in just 10 minutes, it can sit in the refrigerator overnight (or you can bake it immediately), and it will be warm from the oven 30 minutes later — at exactly the time your kids finish digging through their stockings and the hunger pangs strike! This crowd-pleasing breakfast casserole is a holiday morning treat that just might set the stage for one of your family’s new traditions, too!
When the holiday is over, the last thing that any of us will want to do is stand in the kitchen the next day to slave over a hot meal. Instead, we need something that comes together in a matter of minutes, that uses common pantry staples, and that the whole family will actually eat.

There’s an apple and squash bake that my mom makes every year for Thanksgiving. It’s really good. Like…really REALLY good. So good, that it’s been on the holiday menu every single year that I’ve been alive (that’s 37 years, for those of you who are counting).
