Mexican Breakfast Casserole

Last week I realized that there are so many recipes that I love and/or want to conquer that aren’t on LCK in any variation. Well, I didn’t just realize this last weekend, but a little light went off in my head that reminded me to do some work on my ever-growing recipe idea list (major fun lists in the note section of my iPhone).  A sneak peek into my notes? NY-Style Coffee Crumb Cakes, Jamaican Jerk Chicken Bites, Black and White Cookies, “Spaghetti” Alfredo with Bacon and Caramelized Onions, Oreos, Mini Cheesecakes, the list goes on and on and I am certainly ready!

SAVORY SUNDAYSIf you have been here before you may already know that I love to entertain. I also love to prep meals in advance for the days ahead. Casseroles, in particular… totally missing from here! I have one bake, which I love and am now reminded that I need to make that dish way more often. They are pretty perfect for exactly what I love, having family and friends over for a nice brunch, and making a meal that last for a few days. 

Mexican Breakfast CasseroleTotally perfect. Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines, and I firmly believe it’s even better for breakfast.
