On the weekends we like to have a big breakfast when we have the time, but I don’t like to feel like a short order cook! I like to have recipes I can rely on to please the whole family, so I’m not cooking a little of this and a little of that when people are wandering into the kitchen when they get up! This breakfast egg bacon and hash brown casserole is the perfect recipe for a weekend breakfast. This is also a wonderful recipe for a special brunch or even when you feel like serving up breakfast at dinner! I also bake this up ahead of time, then cut off a square and heat it up in the microwave for a quick weekday breakfast idea.
