One of the standards around here is breakfast casserole. I make one every week. They make such easy breakfasts--quick to reheat in a flash. All my recipes are rich with eggs, cheese and meats. This one happens to be Three Little Pigs, with bacon, ham and sausage. What we can't forget, however, is how versatile these casseroles can be. We can bake full casseroles--easy, or of course, we can bake them in muffin cups for individual servings on the go. One way to compromise between these two is to cut a casserole into sticks after it is baked.
When cut in stick form, these casseroles become finger food. They are great for lunch boxes (especially Bento), snacking in front of the TV, even for party fare. These are even easier than muffins to eat in the car on the way to work!
Casserole sticks can be flash frozen, then sealed in a ziploc bag so a few can be removed for a quick snack or breakfast. If you freeze them this way, be sure to get as much air out as possible to avoid freezer burn. It is easy to pack them into snack bags to freeze so they are easy to grab and go.
