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.
We have two recipes included here that are similar, both make great
breakfast meals. One recipe uses bread the other uses hash brown
potatoes. The egg casseroles freeze well or they can be made ahead
of time and stored in the fridge.
