Green Chile Breakfast Casserole |

Ahhh, it feels so good to be back. C and I returned from our cruise last Saturday evening… with sunburns, a sinus infection for him and a stress fractured foot for me. Even with all of that, we had an absolutely amazing time and we can’t wait to sail with Disney again!

I know I posted last week while I was away, but it seems like forever since I’ve actually been in the kitchen. I’ve definitely enjoyed being served and waited on hand & foot (believe me), but I’ve missed getting my hands all buttered up and covered in flour. Which is why I put together this little dish for today’s breakfast. It’s easily prepared the night before, and after a rest in the refrigerator, a quick trip to the oven is called for just an hour before you’re ready to serve. It’s also a perfect tailgating recipe when your team decides to hold it’s game at 11am on a Saturday morning. 🙂

You know you had a good time when you come back a hot mess. 🙂 Hope your foot heals quickly and C’s sinus infection goes away soon!

Glad to see your back in the kitchen, this casserole sounds right up my alley!

Glad you enjoyed your cruise – those are one of my fav ways to travel 🙂

This looks casserole so good! I really like mexican flavors and I think the green chili would be a great match with eggs – Yum!
