Whenever the kids come home for the holidays, we are always overjoyed with having everyone around. I just love that my house fills up with their talking, laughing, and presence. As the Mom of the family, it’s my thought that I have to make sure that everyone is fed and taken care of. So, when they are home for a breakfast or brunch time, I like to make a nice hearty casserole. I have done several different kinds over the years, but this one is by far my favorite.
Baked potato breakfast casserole has everything that you could imagine, and so much more. My family always gobbles this right up. I know if all the kids and grand kids are going to be around, I usually will make two of these just to be sure that we have enough!
They toss together fairly easily and really fill you up. I will sometimes mix around the meats and cheeses to in order to have something a little different to offer.
