Breakfast Casserole with Sundried Tomatoes and Spinach

When my kids were little I was that mom who used to put zucchini in their scrambled eggs. In fact, there were sweet potatoes in pancakes and shredded carrots in muffins. If I could find a way to sneak a vegetable into my kids mouths, I did it. Getting your kids to eat nutritious foods isn’t always easy….sometimes you have to be a little bit sneaky! I came to discover that it is really pretty easy to find places to put vegetables, especially in a breakfast casserole like this one!

There are a lot of breakfast casserole recipes out there on the internet. Most of them contain some combination of eggs, milk, sausage and bread. I went a bit farther and added several different kinds of vegetables to my breakfast casserole. I love this recipe because you have just about every food group in one dish. Plenty of protein, lots of veggies, and my favorite food group…cheese! Yes, in my house cheese is it’s own food group! You can choose whatever kind of cheese is your favorite but we used cheddar since that is what I had in the cheese bin!
