Breakfast Casserole

Even though I’m not working right now, weekends still have that “sleep in and relax” feel for me. During the week, I’m a “forget breakfast” or “eat a bowl of cereal” type of girl, but on the weekends, I like to something more substantial. A breakfast casserole is quick, easy and rather versatile.


Plus, it’s hard to mess up.

The dogs were a captive audience, until they realized I wasn’t going to give them any bacon, and Demon Kitty was indifferent to everything.

The Boyfriend Unit ignored all of us, as he’s working from home today. Bah humbug.

I originally found this recipe on AllRecipes.com many years ago, and I change it up a bit every time I make it.
