Breakfast Casserole

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.

    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!
    Love your pics!

    Chili! Just made a HUGE batch yesterday because we’ve been having such cold and rainy weather here in Michigan. It was the perfect rainy day food and we loaded it up with peppers :)
