Potato, Egg and Biscuit Breakfast Casserole

"I threw this together last night to cook for breakfast this morning using just what I had on hand and it turned out beautifully. This is very adaptable to your individual taste. You can leave out the bacon bits, or substitute cooked sausage or ham. Next time I will definitely add mushrooms and green peppers! This is wonderful served with fresh tomato slices and/or other fruit."

I'm an Arkansas native but spent my teen-aged years in Memphis. I have four grown sons and 12 grandchildren. I currently live in Chattanooga, TN and cook mainly for just two, which has been quite an adjustment!
