Meet my Christmas morning winner! Ain’t she a colorful beauty? LOVE HER!
Hi Hi Hi!! Waz upppp? How are things? Are you still shopping!? I am happy to announce that I did it ALL yesterday AND I came out alive. A whole 10 hours later…
I can’t believe it took that long. But, you guys, no joke, I have sore muscles today. All that walking while carrying 15 bags really did a number on me. I haven’t worked out that hard since… well, last Christmas!
If shopping was a sport, I’d be the fittest person of ever. You, too? YAHS!
…and I would eat an entire casserole dish of this breakfast casserole every Sunday… ♥
Though the holidays are a perfect time to enjoy this hearty breakfast casserole, really, it’s perfect any time of the year. You could even whip it up in the morning, place it in the fridge and have brinner ready that night. My favorite meal of the day!
Chock full of bacon, ham, spinach, feta cheese and eggs, this is my life saver on Christmas morning because this will feed a crowd. It can serve between 6 to 10 people, depending on how hungry your people are, but definitely the perfect option for around the holidays since you only need to spend about 10 minutes in the kitchen putting it together the night before. Then, wake up, pop it in the oven and just let it bake!
This Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole will satisfy everyone at the table, believe me. I haven’t had one complaint, yet.
ALSO? This is an awesome option for leftover ham! Wooot!
Have a great Sunday!
