Rise and Shine Breakfast Casserole
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This recipe is a cross between a traditional breakfast casserole and a tater tot casserole. So good! It's savory and makes for a hearty breakfast. All of the work is done the night before. The best part is just having to pop it in the oven in the morning. This feeds a nice sized family and would be great on a holiday morning when you don't want to be in the kitchen.
Note: Each oven is different. We had to bake ours for an hour so we suggest checking the center to make sure the egg is cooked. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Rise and Shine Breakfast Casserole
- In a medium/large bowl, crack 8 eggs (if making a smaller casserole you may have to use 6; or if a larger about 10+) Scramble the eggs with a fork. Add 2 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream to the egg mixture and whisk well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
**Note: Again if you do not have these on hand or want to trim the calories just substitute for an additional 1/2 cup milk.***
