Blue Ribbon Recipe

Between the spices and grilled chiles, this make-ahead breakfast casserole has a slight Southwest feel. Croutons, instead of torn bread, are different but work beautifully. Since this is prepped the night before, it's a delicious option for a holiday morning or hosting overnight guests.
