This Mexican breakfast casserole is quick and easy to whip up and perfect for guests!
Hi I’m Kelley from The Grant Life! I know it’s crazy – but the holidays will be here before we know it! I feel like it’s still summer time when we are really so close to Christmas! That means that everyone is going to start to become more busy then normal. Shopping for gifts, hosting parties, Halloween, Thanksgiving, cleaning the house, sports. The list could go on and on! Let me tell you, having this Mexican breakfast casserole recipe will come in EXTRA handy this time of year.
This casserole can be prepared ahead of time or whipped up quickly the day you need it. It also comes in handy as a last minute dinner recipe! It’s like the ultimate time saver meal.
On top of that, it’s really easy to make and you only need a few basic ingredients. I love a good meal that is full of simple ingredients, don’t you?
Just a few tips on this easy recipe – be sure to grease your baking dish really well. I forgot to and I had baked egg stuck to my dish after! I felt so silly for forgetting, especially when I had to scrub it off later! So be sure to using some sort of cooking spray or butter to grease your dish.
Second, feel free to add other things to this casserole! This is a great base recipe, but I could have added bell pepper or jalapenos or avocados on top. Add your favorite spice to give it a kick or don’t use any. It’s all up to you!
