This past weekend, not only did we have a baby shower but also a breakfast party!  My family tried out a great recipe from Johnsonville the Sunrise Breakfast Casserole using Ore-Ida Potatoes!

Not only was this easy to make and delicious, but it would freezer well so it is going on my list of freezer cooking meals too!

I love that this recipe can be made the night before then just popped in the oven in the morning as soon as you wake up.  For us, we typically do a holiday breakfast, so this would be the perfect recipe to do that with.  I am always very favorable of recipes that I can prep the night before and then have minimal work in the morning especially for breakfast!

My husband and son were happy to taste test before we headed over to my parents to share with them and have a breakfast party!

My mom dug right in and thought it was delicious; however, my dad was a bit more skeptical!  He doesn’t like anything that remotely resembles quiche, so it took some convincing to get him to realize that it wasn’t quiche.

Then, he took a bite and loved it!  He even came to church the next morning still talking about how delicious it was!  I think this has the perfect combination of hashbrowns and eggs!

When I made this, I served it with homemade salsa!

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The words in your content seem to be running off the
    screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web
    browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
