Easy Breakfast Casserole Recipe

I LOVE breakfast! And in my opinion, there is nothing better than a yummy breakfast casserole.

 Why do I love casseroles so much? 

They are perfect for feeding large groups of people, they can be made in advance (the night before you need to bake them), and they travel well. So, you can bring them to a potluck or to a friend's house!

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe a few months ago, and it is AMAZING! It is very easy, and you can add whatever ingredients you have on hand, which makes it pretty hard to mess up! 

I first tried it out when my sister was having a bridesmaid brunch back in February, and it was a HIT. All of the girls LOVED it!

Since then, I have made a lot of different variations for different occasions. I even like to make one on the weekend when I am doing all of my meal prep, and Landon and I will eat it during the week. It is super quick to reheat in the morning... Just cut a square, microwave it, and enjoy!

About a week ago, I made these for a family brunch I hosted at my house. I made a vegetarian one, a meat one (with sausage, ham, and bacon), and a broccoli/ham one. (Note: These are uncooked. I made them the day before, and kept them in the fridge overnight) 

Easy Breakfast Casserole
8 eggs
2 cups of milk
1 20 oz. package of shredded hash browns (If you use frozen, cook them in a pan for a few minutes first to get the moisture out. Then, let them cool.)
1 lb. breakfast sausage or crumbled bacon or turkey or whatever meat you want to add
1/4 to 1/2 cup small broccoli pieces
1-2 cups shredded cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
(And, like I mentioned above, you can add or omit any vegetables, meats, etc.. you like)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Mix eggs, milk, seasonings together in a bowl.
2. Add other ingredients and mix them in.
3. Spray 9x13 casserole dish with Pam or any non-stick spray.
4. Pour mixture into pan and top with shredded cheese.
6. Bake about 40 minutes or until done.

And that's it! Easy peasy, right?

Let me know if you give it a try. I would love to know what you think!

(Also, sorry for the lack of posts last week! I left my computer charging cord in Colorado... OOPS!!!)
