Texas Two-Step Breakfast Casserole

I made some modifications to a typical Southwest breakfast casserole recipe. I love this recipe because I can make it up the night before and bake it in the morning. Egg casseroles can often be a bit dry, but this one comes out moist and delicious every time!

This is a really good and quick casserole! We were a bit leery there wouldn't be enough eggs (with all the other goodies packed in here), but it was perfect. Not dry at all. This is great for breakfast or brunch but would be great for dinner or a potluck. Very versatile! The Test Kitchen

One thing I love to do on the weekend is to make a breakfast casserole. Many times I can prep them the night before so they're easy to throw together...
