I recently had surgery in November and one of the moms in our playgroup brought over this yummy breakfast casserole. I couldn’t get enough of it and I thought it was really good with the almonds as the nut to add a little crunchy texture. We froze them and then pulled them out to bake the next week with no issues. Highly recommend prepping a few of these before the holiday’s are here.
