Looking for an Easy Breakfast Casserole?

Can I entice you to try this easy breakfast casserole? Enjoy a delicious tailgating breakfast

Try this two cheese, bacon, chilies, and eggs breakfast and brunch casserole.

One of my favorite breakfast casserole recipes, the cheese, bacon, chilies and eggs embodies this easy make-ahead dish with a full, slightly spicy flavor.

The Monterrey Jack cheese may be freely replaced with Colby cheese, or use a combination of both. Both these cheeses are milder than most cheddar's, but should be used while they are as fresh as possible.

As always, I recommend using the freshest ingredients possible for best results.

This great breakfast casserole recipe is delicious when served with quick bread and fresh fruit and some excellent coffee

Perfect as a breakfast casserole, this recipe makes a perfect brunch casserole as well.
