Breakfast Casserole #PepperParty plus Wüsthof Giveaway!

Everything you love about breakfast all mixed into one simple and tasty Breakfast Casserole

There are some classic go to recipes you should have on hand.  A simple Breakfast Casserole is one of them.  This is always a great casserole to whip up if you have overnight guests, hosting a brunch, or just want a nice weekend breakfast for the family.

My mom used to make this Breakfast Casserole Christmas morning.  When I was filing away some recipes, I stumbled upon this recipe and I remembered how good it is.  It’s the perfect balance of egg, cheese, crumbled sausage and veggies all in one delicious casserole.  This doesn’t have to be enjoyed just for breakfast.  I love breakfast for dinner.  We do breakfast for dinner once in awhile, and everytime we do I say we need to do it more.  I’m all for diving into a stack of buttery pancakes with sweet maple syrup, an omelette, breakfast burrito or even this casserole for dinner.

With the holidays coming up, yes my friends the holidays will be here before we know it, this is a great casserole to serve during the holidays or even at a potluck.

I love eggs, omelettes and this casserole with diced sweet bell peppers.  Bell peppers add great crunch and texture to this casserole as well as many dishes.  Last Thursday myself along with 20 other talented bloggers and Divemex kicked off Bell Pepper Week.  If you missed my first recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas be sure to check it out as there is also a great giveaway for a 3/12 Quart Le Creuset Braiser you can enter to win!  The Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas is a great recipe to add to your menu.  They are quick, easy and have so much flavor.

“The growers of Divemex specialize in greenhouse grown peppers in state of the art facilities that facilitate the  production of the highest quality peppers in some of the safest facilities  anywhere.  But most importantly, as a Fair Trade Certified company, they have an  unwavering commitment to social responsibility that puts workers first.”

    Great minds think alike! I made a breakfast casserole (sans bread) for dinner on Friday and had so many leftovers, I have been eating it for breakfast. I think it tastes better every day as the flavors sit togehter. And the peppers really do add a nice little something!
