You can freeze many of these and break them out for an easy weekend breakfast for the whole family. From breakfast casseroles infused with Tex-Mex flavors, to others that incorporate unexpected ingredients (such as pesto!) here are some of the best breakfast casserole recipes that are perfect for weight loss.
