Happy Friday! Yay! Weekend here we come! Today concludes Breakfast week. I hope you enjoyed all the yummy recipes I shared with you this week.
I tried to change it up with a healthy breakfast, a hearty fun taco breakfast, then a sweet breakfast. Today I’m bringing you a delicious and super easy breakfast casserole.
This dish comes together quickly and will be on your table in no time at all. You know those weekend days you wake up and don’t know what you want for breakfast. You know that you’re sick of your every day butter and toast, or granola bars. You know that you want something hearty, but you also don’t have all day to be in the kitchen.
If that’s the case, then you need to make this Breakfast Casserole. It’s seriously so versatile. You can really add any ingredients you want or have on hand. The main ingredient you’ll need of course are eggs.
When I came up with this dish I had a few veggies in the fridge that needed to be used. I also had a pound of turkey sausage in the freezer that was calling my name. This casserole has everything you need for your morning. It has meat, potatoes, vegetables, and even dairy. In my book that’s one excellent meal. This dish is sure to get you going in the morning and will keep you full for a good while.
