A Fun Breakfast Casserole for Blinner
September 3, 2015 20 Comments
I had to shoot a photo of this casserole while it was still in the oven.
The sharks were swimming around the kitchen saying things like, “When is dinner ready? Why is it taking so long? That looks SO good. Is it done yet?”
I decided that if I brought it out and starting shooting photos someone might bite my arm.
This is a casserole for those people who adore Tater Tots, are short on time, and want to eat breakfast all day long (blinner is breakfast, lunch, and dinner combined into one short word). One of my favorite diners serves breakfast all day long and I love it!
I made it a bit healthier by dropping the sausage or bacon that usually makes its way into breakfast casserole and by adding chopped spinach. I also cut the amount of cheese as much as I could without losing the deliciousness.
My kids went bananas (though they did complain about the green stuff) for this casserole.
This recipe does not freeze well but it does keep in the fridge for a while.
Do you have a favorite breakfast casserole? Please share.
