Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day; we have breakfast for dinner very often. We like to have Breakfast Enchiladas, Breakfast Sliders, Or even Sausage and Gravy. Throw this breakfast casserole together before work or before you go to bed for a filling breakfast or dinner when you get home for a hot easy meal.
