Lots going on over the next few days. The weather forecast is awesome and I intend to spend my mornings training for my 5k or upping my walks to 8 miles.  To save time in the mornings I decided to whip up an egg casserole to last us for the next few days.

Breakfast casseroles are the easiest things to make. All you need are 8-10 eggs (for an 8 x 8 dish), some sautéed veggies, 1 cup of cheese and a protein. Toss in a little salt and pepper and you have yourself an amazingly tasty way to start the day.

The beauty of this egg casserole is you can easily mix in different ingredients. Just mix well for best distribution throughout. This one features spinach, bacon, mushrooms and cheddar.

My veggies of choice: spinach and diced baby bella mushrooms. Funny, when I was a kid (translation: in my 20s) I hated spinach and mushrooms. Never tried either but I hated them. Now, I absolutely love them. That’s what happens when you stop being stupid and try something new.
