Spinach and Egg Breakfast Casserole

We just love how colorful and how satisfying this turned out!

Everyone loves waking up to a warm and hearty homemade breakfast on a lazy Saturday morning, but no one wants to spend hours in the kitchen preparing it. With this cheesy spinach casserole, it’s easy to enjoy a satisfying breakfast during the week as well as the weekend.

A subtle hint of garlic brings out the rich egg and cheese flavors and tender baby spinach lends hearty texture and color. It’s ready for the oven in just 15 minutes, and it cooks in under an hour so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the morning. Best of all, any leftovers taste just as good when they’re reheated. We think this is pretty good as a breakfast-for-dinner meal too!
