HAM & MUSHROOM BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

Myself five years ago is staring, jaw-dropped in disbelief. I have really come to love more savory breakfasts over the sweet, dessert-y type of things. The breakthrough was realizing I don’t like breakfast casseroles that have mostly just egg as their bases. Hash browns or bread? I can get down with that. Possibly my all-time favorite breakfast is this savory bread pudding. It’s an example of a bread base. This ham breakfast casserole is of the potato hash brown variety.
