Day #9: Breakfast for Dinner Ham + Cheese Casserole

 Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole #breakfast #casserole #eggdish #thriftymeals #budgetrecipe #mealplan #twelveOeightblog

Nothing seems to get devoured faster than a good egg and potato casserole at a potluck, gathering or family meal.
I have made this version for years, and it is our go to recipe for potlucks, family breakfasts, and a night my kids look
forward to, breakfast-for-dinner night. Which we do a few times a month, and because breakfast foods and recipes
usually tend to be a bit more affordable than dinners, this helps keep the food budget under control too!

You can get creative with the meat you choose to add, like seasoned ground turkey for tacos, or leftover chopped
steak or chicken.  I love to use ham or ground beef.  For this recipe I chose a classic ham n’ cheese combo.

I hope you like it as much as we do!!
