Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole
This recipe comes from Smithfield. This one-dish wonder is filled with hash browns, eggs, bacon and cheese. It will serve 8 average people, 6 really hungry people, 4 extremely ravenous people, or 1 person from Epic Meal Time. It also re-heats well so you could prep it Friday night, bake it Saturday morning and have 2 delicious breakfasts for a family of four. Ideally, this would be assembled and then sit in the fridge overnight, but if you are making it the same day, it’ll still be amazingly delicious. I mean, it’s eggs, bacon, hash browns and cheese. It’s gonna be awesome. Trust us. For more meaty inspiration, follow Smithfield on Twitter and Facebook.
