Cheesy Mashed Potato Egg Casserole ~ Perfect Breakfast or Brunch Casserole Loaded with Mashed Potatoes, Eggs, Cheese and Bacon! This Hearty Breakfast Recipe is Perfect for Entertaining!
You are going to think I’m a slightly odd duck when I tell you this, but breakfast…breakfast gets me excited you guys! It’s so backwards because I really hate getting up in the morning and I don’t make a big breakfast very often but I love it all the same. I especially love it when I serve it for dinner! Luckily for me my girls and hubs love it too.
The girls are always requesting eggs, pancakes, waffles etc. I think I might love serving it for dinner because I feel like I’m daring and on the edge. Yes, in my life that’s about as daring as I get!
Also, another daring point in my life was using mashed potatoes in a breakfast casserole. I usually opt of hash browns like 99% of other people but I went out on a limb and decided that mashed potatoes were going to happen.
You guys, it was epic! We’ve made this multiple times already and that’s saying a lot! We’ve also mixed things up and substituted the Simply Potatoes® Mashed Potatoes our for their Simply Potatoes® Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Amazing! If you are a garlic lover like me then you need to try this option too!
Plus, Easter is right around the corner! Can you believe it? If you are looking to keep your holiday meal simple this is your ticket! This recipe comes together in minutes so you can spend time with your guests instead of slaving over the meal in the kitchen. Sounds like a win right? I’m practicing #SimplyHolidays and making it real and simple!
One thing that is always stocked in my fridge is Simply Potatoes. Whether it’s their fabulous mashed potatoes, hash browns or diced potatoes they make my meal times way simpler.
