Looking for  breakfast casserole recipe?  

This Hearty Breakfast Casserole in a Skillet is great for breakfast or brunch.  (Anything with a half of a pound of bacon in it has to be good….right??) You could also substitute cooked diced ham or cooked sausage in this recipe as well.  Breakfast skillets can be cooked in one skillet or in individual skillets for some added flair!  I use my Lodge Cast Iron Individual Skillets when I want to make individual servings of this recipe,  I used refrigerated Simply Potatoes instead of frozen hash browns and I loved the convenience it added.  (No thawing)
