    It's no secret that brunch is one of my favorite meals. I've developed countless recipes for breakfast and brunch and just can't seem to get enough. I love entertaining with brunch because it's relaxed and usually a crowd pleaser, and if you choose your dishes wisely, it can been effortless elegance. Take this strawberry cream cheese breakfast casserole, for example. I have made it a ton of different ways using different ingredients from sweet to savory, and it ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS comes out AMAZING! It can even be prepared a few hours in advance and baked off right before your guests arrive.

    Step 5: Pour egg mixture over the croissants and press down so that the croissants soak it up. Cover pie plate with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5--10 minutes more or until egg is fully cooked. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
