We occasionally have breakfast celebrations at work for monthly birthdays or showers. I make this each time we have one of these parties I make this casserole. The first time I made it my coworker Bridget just fell in love with it. She is a self proclaimed non-cook but knew she could do this one, so hence the name Bridget's Breakfast Casserole.
