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.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!

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!

MY OTHER RECIPES

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. Cheesy Mashed Potato Egg Casserole ~ Perfect Breakfast or Brunch Casserole Loaded with Mashed Potatoes, Eggs, Cheese and Bacon!
