Breakfast Ideas for Toddlers – Healthy Casserole

| |

My toddler is starting to eat what we eat at every meal so I’ve been on a serious casserole kick lately. Casseroles are so easy to make for family meals, are great for leftovers, and, if done right, can also be very healthy. That’s why I was excited to try out this Healthy Breakfast Toddler Casserole dish – perfect for the whole family and packed with hidden veggies!

I actually made this dish for dinner because sometimes we like to mix it up and eat breakfast for dinner (we be cray!) And there were leftovers so we actually had it for breakfast the next morning. The less cooking I have to do for every meal – the better!

I’m a sucker for crescent rolls, so this was a must as the base of the casserole.

  1. This looks delicious, but I don’t know how each serving has only 1 carb. The crescent roles and hashbrowns by themselves contain at least 11 carbs per roll and the hashbrowns come in at 19 net carbs per serving. And 50 calories per serving? How can that be when one large egg has 70 calories? If this serves 6 people, then each serving has at least 140 calories in eggs.
    And zero fat??? No way! I stopped counting at 20 grams of fat PER SERVING. I’m not trying to be a party pooper here, but to promote this recipe as toddler friendly is simply irresponsible. I would however, be inclined to make this for adult company on a special weekend breakfast. Or this could be an amazing Keto recipe with a few tweaks. Please do the responsible thing and update your nutrition info. I mean, this recipe is supposed to be for toddlers for goodness sake!

  2. I love the idea of this but I’d probably try cooking the hasbrowns or thawing them first. Mine is too watery. I’ve put it on for an extra 30 minutes and still watery.
