Inspiration: One of my favorite times of the year is the week before Christmas. The last few years I’ve taken vacation days from work, and I’ve used the time to hang out at home and do all of the things that I enjoy the most while I look forward to Christmas. And that includes a lot of cooking! The first thing that I decided to cook this year was a nice breakfast casserole that B and I could enjoy on our lazy mornings.
What we Loved: This casserole was so flavorful! I loved the combination of the strong feta cheese and the sharp cheddar. The cheddar helped the casserole to get nice and crispy brown in the corners and on top, and the feta added a really nice bite. Combined with a spicy kick from the jalapenos, this casserole really had a lot of great flavors. And as an added bonus, it was so easy to prepare, which is always nice!
Helpful Hints: You could add pretty much anything that you’d like into this recipe. The original recipe called for ham, which would be great, or other meats like sausage or crumbled bacon would work wonderfully, too.
