Make Ahead Egg Casserole~ As Seen on Fox 59 Indianapolis

Today I am sharing the last of my 3 dishes from my Fox 59 appearance on Monday (watch it HERE)

I make some kind of egg casserole every week. When you have 3 guys in your house that thrive on a big breakfast you need to get creative with cheap ways to feed them.  Nothing is cheaper, and more filling, than a casserole like this. A layer of shredded potatoes,cheese, eggs,cream and diced green chilies-it really stands on its own on your breakfast table! Add this to your holiday menu and you will not have any left over, promise:)

And with a bit of salsa, I used my favorite-Salsa me Krazy, this is one zesty breakfast!
