Egg Casserole Recipe

The following egg casserole recipe can be changed a bit by adding whatever breakfast meat you'd like, try bacon, sausage or ham. You can also substitute the vegetables in this breakfast egg casserole with something else or leave out all together. I like to add pureed vegetables or shredded zucchini in with the egg mixture.
