Egg casserole

So, here’s the story about this famous breakfast egg casserole…

Christmas breakfasts started back in the dinosaur age.  You know.  When I was a kid.  (You want to see some dinosaur eggs?)

We went to my Grandad’s house on Christmas morning for a visit and breakfast.


As time passed, my mom & dad took over and we started going to their house for Christmas breakfast/brunch. 

We still do.

And yes, you guessed it. 

I’m old, so she must be ancient! 

She kind of is…  (sorry, Mom)  But at 84 years young, she still makes a mean breakfast casserole. 

The ingredients may vary just a little each year, but the basic recipe is below.

It’s pretty good.  Try it.  You’ll like it.
