Every so often I just really want to have breakfast for dinner. Sometimes it’s a craving, sometimes it’s because I have an abundance of eggs from my backyard chickens! Whatever the reason, it’s always a win in my house. This casserole is a meat lovers dream – full of sausage, ham and bacon! – and pretty easy to make. Scroll down for my version of Breakfast Dinner Casserole.
You can play around with this casserole – use different meats, add some veggies (spinach or broccoli would be yum!). You can also use frozen hashbrowns instead of shredding potatoes if you want. Also – you could use shredded zucchini to make it a little more Keto-Friendly.
A couple of kiddos added a dollop of sour cream on top, while my husband added Tabasco. You could serve this with a side of toast (like I did) or english muffins to add to the breakfast diner feel. PS. I like to melt the butter in the microwave and brush it on the toasted bread instead of putting a pat of butter on it. This uses less butter and gets better coverage too! My oldest boy says it would be really yummy with some country gravy on top too! The possibilities really are endless with this one!
