Breakfast Casserole

Last night we had this delicious casserole for dinner. It's easy to put together, and gives you a bit of time to put your feet up while it cooks. And did I mention it's fairly inexpensive?

First I fried some sliced potato and covered the bottom of the casserole dish. You could also use tater tots, or sliced leftover baked or boiled potatoes. Then I topped the potatoes with onion, green pepper, olives and crumbled bacon. You can use your favorite veggies and meat, just slice things thin so they are fully cooked.

Next I beat together 5 eggs with a little bit of water and about a tablespoon of potato flakes. The restaurants use the flakes to help give the eggs some fluff, and it really works. Pour the egg mixture over the veggies, then top with shredded cheese.


Bake in a 350-375 degree oven. I didn't time it, I always look for the cheese to start browning just a bit, and I tip it to make sure the eggs are completely set. We served it with salsa for the adults, ketchup for the kids, and it was devoured!
