This is a classic breakfast recipe.
Farm fresh ingredients. Crispy, smoky bacon. Hashbrowns cooked with cheese.
Those are all the things people enjoy in a good breakfast-time meal.
When I first spotted this recipe, it was simple enough that I’d usually turn the page in my cookbooks. But something about it called out to me; the simplicity was what made it interesting to me.
Sometimes we get too wrapped up in making something extravagant that we forget how good SIMPLE ingredients can be. I need to remember that from time to time.
This recipe is easy to make and will feed a crowd. It’s definitely a new favorite that I’m going to keep in the breakfast rotation.
And a reminder: breakfast casseroles don’t have to just be made for special occasions. They can be good for normal weekend or weekday breakfasts, too.
