I was looking for something to make ahead for my week day breakfasts on the go. I had made a similar dish before and it was really bland, so I jazzed this one up with seasonings at every step.<br/>I used pork sausage (on hand) and added sage and garlic, then cooked bell peppers and onion separately seasoned with oregano, s&p and chili flakes. The potatoes had their own seasoning.<br/> To the Bisquick, I added ancho chili powder (just a little), paprika and s&p. Baked it in a smaller pan for thickness 40 min. When cooled, divided into six pcs and put them into the freezer. Pull one out for breakfast, microwave 1min 30sec, mabe add a little pica de gallo.
I made this last night so I'd have breakfast for the week. I substituted 10 pieces of crispy turkey bacon for the ham, but used everything else as called for. This was very easy to make. I found it a little bland for my personal tastes, I added some garlic salt, red pepper flakes, and hot sauce, but I feel like it probably needed a bit more. Overall, however, this was good and I will definitely make it again. It's also quite filling- it's been 2 hrs since breakfast and I'm not hungry again yet. Thanks for sharing.
I made this casserole for dinner, (In our household we like breakfast any time of day!). I used turkey bacon in place of ham. This took about 10 minutes longer to cook than than the recipe said. It was pretty tasty.
