Italian Breakfast Casserole #SecretRecipeClub

Time for August Secret Recipe Club reveal! 

This month I received a jackpot of recipes from 2 Cookin' Mamas. The authors of the blog are Linda and Christina, a mother daughter team- they even have co-authored a cookbook! They specialize in my favorite type of meals- quick and healthy. Their blog is full of delicious recipes and I had a terrible time picking a recipe because there was so much yumminess to choose from like: Icebox Key Lime Pie Bites, Wine Slushies, Mandarin Chicken Salad, and Carrot Cake Smoothie. I ultimately decided to make Italian Breakfast Casserole. I love preparing baked egg casseroles on the weekend and this one is a little outside the box of our normal eggs and bacon combination. The recipe calls for smoked ham, salami and zesty pepperoni. Add in mozzarella and provolone with a few roasted red peppers and you have a delicious alternative to your everyday breakfast casserole. The original recipe called for roasted red pepper halves and when I purchased mine I didn't realize that I had grabbed chopped roasted red peppers- oops.  

The flavors of this casserole are delicious. The different meats with the cheesy eggs and potatoes makes a delicious and filling breakfast. My family loved this- even my non-egg lover, Kellen! 

Thank you for a new delicious recipe Linda and Christina! 

Tonight my family and I are tuned into the Olympics! We love watching swimming and really get into the competition and were happy to see gold for the United States!

  1. So glad your family enjoyed the casserole Ashley. It's become a favorite at our house not only for breakfast but "breakfast for dinner" too. And it makes a great lunch to take to the office.

  2. What a great twist on the traditional breakfast casserole! Bookmarking this one to make in the future!

  3. At first I thought: breakfast casseole...what!? Now, I just want to stick a fork in my monitor. That looks wondeful, Ashley.

  4. We're starting to get into breakfast casseroles here, and this looks like a wonderful twist on the usual! :)
