Sunrise Breakfast Casserole


Breakfast casseroles don’t have to be reserved for JUST the weekends. This is a quick and easy casserole that you can even make the night before and pop it into the fridge. The next morning, as soon as you’ve made your coffee {because we have our priorities ; ) } just pop it into the oven and by the time you get dressed and round up the family it will be ready to enjoy. Feel free to customize this to your families likes. I love to use these type of recipes to use up bits and pieces in the fridge. Mushrooms and bell peppers would be fantastic in here as well.


And it’s easily doubled if you’re feeding a crowd.
