Let me tell you a little story about how I came about this recipe for Easy Breakfast Casserole. Did you ever have one of those afternoons where you look at your watch, realize it’s 4:00 PM and you haven’t given a single thought about dinner? Yeah, well, that was me the other night. Usually, I’m very good with meal planning. But not that night. For some reason, I had nothing planned. Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch.
To make things worse, I barely had anything in my pantry. And, the only meat I had was bacon. Apparently, I was in dire need of a visit to my grocery store. How does this happen to a food blogger? Grocery shopping is in my job description.
Since I had bacon, I could have made my One Pot BLT Pasta (which is to die for, FYI). But, I was missing a few key ingredients — like the pasta. I still can’t figure out how I ended up with no pasta in my pantry.
I thought to myself, “BFD”. No, not that! This is a family-friendly blog, after all. BFD – Breakfast for dinner. Duh! I scoured my Pinterest Boards looking for inspiration and came across this little gem from Angela is Here. Somehow, I managed to have all of the ingredients on hand.
This breakfast casserole was definitely a keeper! It took no time at all to assemble and about 25 minutes to bake. Easy and fast. Just what I needed. And, it was quite tasty. I did play around with the original recipe a bit to suit my family’s needs – it’s very adaptable. You can pretty much tweak it to suit your needs.
Thanks, Angela, for helping me out of a dinner-time pinch! I highly recommend making this Easy Breakfast Casserole – either for breakfast OR dinner!
