The holiday season can be such a crazy time of year- which is why it is my favorite season to make casseroles! They are easy, big, and create delicious leftovers! This Breakfast Casserole is the perfect way to serve a crowd, or just your family this holiday season!
I don’t know what it is about breakfast, but sometimes I just can’t seem to get it together. Someone always needs something! This breakfast casserole is so good- and even better- so easy- that my mornings go a lot smoother! I have started making one on the weekends and saving the leftovers for the rest of the week. Everyone loves it so much that they don’t even mind it for dinner- I am definitely a fan of breakfast for dinner!
A lot of time my go to easy breakfasts are not too healthy or protein filled (oops…), but this breakfast casserole is filled with protein packed eggs, 2 types of meat, potatoes, vegetables, and even milk- it doesn’t get much more filling than that! There are so many ingredients that the little ones don’t even notice the veggies- they are two focused on the yummy cheese on top!
I know what you are thinking- doesn’t it take forever to peel and cut up all of those potatoes? Well, yes, it would.. if I didn’t have my secret weapon- Simply Potatoes® (I told you how I use their mashed potatoes as my secret weapon in this post too!). Just grab a bag of diced potatoes and this meal basically makes itself! Simply Potatoes are fresh- never frozen- so they taste just like they would if you had cut them up yourself! And I love that most of the potatoes they use are grown within 90 miles of their facilities- I feel like I am eating local, while saving my sanity!
Then to make this Breakfast Casserole more hearty, we added al fresco chicken bacon and sausage. al fresco all natural offers more than 30 flavorful and healthy chicken products ranging from dinner and breakfast sausage to meatballs, chicken burgers and chicken bacon. al fresco is the #1 better-for-you chicken sausage brand in the U.S. All of al fresco products have at least 50% less fat than traditional pork and beef products, are 100% all natural and delicious. There are no artificial ingredients, no preservatives, no nitrates or nitrites, no MSG and gluten free. All al fresco products have 35% less sodium than pork products.
This breakfast casserole is also great for a crowd- it is filling and feeds everyone! Plus you can cut up and cook the meats and veggies the night before- then in the morning add the eggs and pop it in the oven. In such a crazy time of year, do yourself a favor and whip up this breakfast casserole! Everyone will love it and you will love how easy it is!Print
