Cheesy Egg and Hashbrown Casserole


Cheesy Egg and Hashbrown Casserole

Next to my slow cooker, casseroles are one of my favorite was to get dinner made simply and quickly. Many casseroles can be frozen or made the morning you wish to serve them. Cover and refrigerate until you arrive home and then just pop them in the oven! I love that the work is done and it just has to bake.

Breakfast for dinner is always a fun treat. I usually try to schedule something simple for Thursday nights because that is one of our busy nights. I know that I don’t get home until 8:15 pm with my daughter from dance and my son and partner get home at 6:45 pm from Science Olympiad practices so dinner needs to be super simple for them to make. It doesn’t get much simpler than popping a casserole in the oven!

Verdict:

This was a good basic casserole. We forgot to put the ham in the casserole so we just threw it on top to bake with the dish. The great thing with this casserole is you can customize it very easily. Next time I am going to saute some peppers and onions to add to it and maybe a bit of tomato! Add broccoli, change the cheese, or even pour salsa over the top when it is done. It is all up to you!
