Secret Recipe Revealed - Breakfast Casserole
In case you haven't picked up on it from my posts, my wife, kids, and I are all about traditions. And what is one of the biggest traditions having to do with holidays? Food. As the kids grew up, it seemed that a new food was added to the "traditional" items every year because they liked it at 4 years old and didn't realize that it hadn't always been around. A very important holiday tradition for us is breakfast. The kids are more than happy to stop opening gifts on Christmas morning when the timer goes off announcing that the Breakfast Casserole is ready! This is one of those recipes that my mom found in a newspaper many years ago. It is assembled the night before so there is no messing with ingredients when there are more important things to be doing!
