Pimiento Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Are you sick of casseroles yet? Have no fear. This might be the last one you see on here for a while.

I’m still trying to get rid of all that ham I made a few weeks ago, and with Thanksgiving this week, I’ve been making casseroles like a fiend to throw something easy together for dinner.

Starting tomorrow, though, it’s all about holiday baking recipes. I’ve been making 1-2 recipes a week over the last month and stockpiling them for closer to Christmas. I hope you like cookies, candies, and breads! I’m still going to throw some dinner recipes in there, too, but we’re officially in the Christmas season…so I want to be as Christmas-y as possible.

This recipe is a good one to save for later. My family always makes a breakfast casserole for Christmas day (this one is our family favorite) because it’s easy, delicious, and a quick way to serve up breakfast for a crowd. I don’t know why we don’t make breakfast casseroles more often; I guess since they are so large it’s hard to eat it up on a normal day.

This breakfast casserole makes a ton. It’s perfect for Christmas morning, especially when you have a lot of people staying at your home. This recipe has the potential to be a crowd favorite; it’s got hashbrowns, a metric ton of cheese, and that homey flavor you expect when you eat a pimiento cheese sandwich. I threw some green chiles in there for good measure—and it turned out wonderful.

Bookmark this recipe. Print out the card and stash it away. You’re going to want to have it handy in a few weeks.

Enjoy!
