Sunday morning brunch is something our family looks forward to each week. This breakfast casserole recipe is super easy and has amazing flavor. Weekends are for relaxing and this really can be mixed up so easily and served to the masses. Heck, it is so easy I might even have the neighbors join us! The more the merrier, right?
Simple meal for the every day and holidays
Life gets super busy and I am always looking to slow down. This breakfast casserole recipe is great for simple living and enjoy each others’ company on the weekends.
And, with the holidays fast approaching this cheesy artichoke breakfast casserole is also perfect for Christmas morning. It can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you are ready to pop it in the oven. Christmas morning is hectic enough without having to worry about breakfast. Pop this casserole in the oven when you get up and it will be ready after all the presents are open.
This casserole has all of my favorite breakfast foods. Eggs, cheese, and artichokes. Serve this casserole with a side of hash browns. I love hash browns, extra crispy!
Everyone seems to enjoy a breakfast casserole! Experiment with it, add some other ingredients that you love. When I made this there really was not even a piece left in the baking dish. The family gobbled it right up! It can feed quite a few people too!

I had to add a sprig or two of basil as a garnish to this breakfast casserole. We grew this basil in our garden this year. I was so excited to be able to harvest some fresh herbs and vegetables. Basil is one of my favorite ingredients to add flavor with. And, its color is the perfect shade of green.
Doesn’t this just look so pretty? I am not a great cook by any means, so when I can plate up a meal that is both pretty and delicious…well this is a total win in my book.
