Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole

This cheesy hash brown breakfast casserole is so good. So dern good. Too dern good. It’s good. Did I mention how good this casserole is? Oh oops I see that I did. You might want to make a plan to make this soon. Real soon.

IMG_2259We had an argument…..yes it’s true we argue at the table, almost every time we sit down, we argue.  Cue the argument.  Yeh, our meal times are anything but peaceful.  Anywho, I was saying we had a little discussion about the cheesy breakfast casserole; some said this is just cheesy potatoes!  Why are you calling it cheesy potato breakfast casserole?  Insinuating that I am a liar liar pants on fire, they were.  But honestly this is a different recipe.  If I were to make my cheesy taters and this casserole and put them side by side, my children would see that they are horribly mistaken.  This one reminds me of Cracker Barrels breakfast potatoes, have you had them?  OOOdoggie they’re thumbs up!

Cheesy Potato Breakfast CasseroleIt’s no mistake, there is no salt or pepper, and the dish does not need to be greased.  I’m telling you, a kindergartener could whip this up!
