Start Your Day With These Vacation Breakfast Ideas

Take advantage of your villa’s fully equipped kitchen with these quick, simple-to-make breakfast recipes.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but your vacation schedule is jam-packed with fun activities. No problem, just prep breakfast when you have time with a make-ahead egg-strata or French-toast casserole. Or whip up something quick in the morning, like a yogurt parfait. The best part: A short grocery list adds up to five different crowd-pleasing meals.

Baked Egg-Strata Casserole

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes
Serves 8

Ingredients
1 pound sausage
1 loaf of bread, cubed (preferably day old)
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
2 cups milk

Directions
Heat a fry pan to medium-high and cook sausage until evenly brown. Drain, and set aside. Prep a casserole dish with butter or cooking spray and layer bread cubes, sausage and cheddar cheese. In a bowl, beat together the eggs and milk. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cube mixture. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Baked French-Toast Casserole

Cook time: 40 minutes
Serves 6 – 8

Ingredients
1 loaf of bread
8 large eggs
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon cinnamon

Directions
Prep a casserole dish with butter or cooking spray. Arrange bread slices in 2 rows, overlapping slices. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt, and beat with a fork until blended. Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture. Spoon some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden. Serve with maple syrup.
