I’ve been following @thegirlwho8everything for at least 8 or 9 years and every recipe I’ve made of hers has been amazing. Last week she posted this breakfast casserole and now that I’ve made it and eaten it, I’m pretty sure that you will all love it too! It’s smooth, cheesy, and the bacon and green chili’s give it the best flavor. There is no sogginess or dryness, it has the perfect texture!


Note: if you don’t have cheddar or Swiss cheese on hand, just use what you have but be mindful that the flavor may change. I used Costco’s Mexican blend cheese and it turned out awesome.
