Confession # 82 – I totally planned to get this recipe out by Mother’s Day. What am I? A week late?
The good thing? You really don’t need a holiday breakfast or special brunch to make this delicious casserole – in fact, it makes a great weeknight dinner!
Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?
I have a similar recipe that I have made many times and it’s always a hit, but it calls for a whole bag of frozen hash brown potatoes…and since starting the 21 Day Fix, I just have higher standards. I thought about making my own hash browns to make it work, but the ladies in my accountability group gave me the perfect idea…why not try cauliflower rice instead? The texture is so similar to potatoes, it was totally worth trying!
I researched a bit, and it turns out this recipe actually exists on the blog, Cupcakes and Kale Chips. Isn’t it awesome when you find out your big idea exists in the world already?
Anyway, I changed it slightly to make this totally FIX approved and, after 6 hours, we had a delicious, gluten free and low carb breakfast-for-dinner waiting for us. Gotta love crockin!
Yum! And it will definitely feed a crowd or make enough for breakfast all week.Print
