My normal breakfast go-to on the weekends is bacon and eggs. I usually just cook some bacon with an over easy egg and call it a day. So sometimes I like to spruce up my bacon and eggs with something a little different. Last night before I went to bed I dreamed up a breakfast casserole containing bacon, onion, peppers and cheddar cheese. I probably should have done the prepping last night, because that’s the great thing about breakfast casseroles, you can! All you have to do is cook your meats and vegetables, mix it together with the hash browns and pour the eggs right over. Then you allow it to sit in the refrigerator overnight and bake it in the morning. Simple! However, in my case, sheer laziness and a few glasses of wine got the best of me and I made it all this morning instead. Even then, it was super quick and easy! I had breakfast on the table in less than an hour. I loved this dish as it was a nice way to change up my normal breakfast routine and the casserole would be perfect to serve a crowd. I personally can’t wait to make some other versions. I’m thinking chorizo and chihuahua cheese, sausage and swiss, steak and cheddar. Ah the possibilities are endless!
