Cheesy Ham and Potato Breakfast Casserole

Easter Sunday is tomorrow. I don’t know if you celebrate, or how you celebrate, but we usually celebrate with food and eggs. Food meaning brunch and BBQs and eggs meaning candy filled eggs for the kids. All while remembering that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and Easter signifies the day he rose from the grave.

Well this meal isn’t exactly as miraculous as rolling away a tombstone, but it is delicious! It’s meaty, hearty and cheesy! And after many people have been fasting for 6 weeks, it’s no wonder we are all hungry! We don’t do the fast over here in our house, but in case you did, you deserve this! Just take some of that Easter ham you are making for lunch and cut a chunk for this breakfast (nobody will notice).

This procrastinator right here thought of this idea the evening before and whipped this up before work in the morning. Now I think this may have delayed my post some, or it could be the fact that my internet service provider is horrible at tech support and my router doesn’t like my blog server. I don’t know, but they just could not help me! So if for some reason I cannot link up, you can find the other cookie posts for this month here.
