With a layer of shredded hash browns on the bottom, this simple and easy breakfast casserole was a hit the two times I've made it so far for family and friends. As with most casseroles you can change it up to incorporate whatever you like in your eggs. We used turkey sausage but chopped veggies would also be delicious!
