And don't feel you need to stick to the script here. Use this recipe as a template for breakfast casseroles of your own invention, switching it up with your favorite ingredients and seasonal mix-ins. Go veggie crazy and add farmers market finds from asparagus to diced squash, or make it Spanish with frozen diced potatoes with peppers and onions (sometimes called potatoes O’Brien) and chorizo. There's no wrong way to bake it up!
