Breakfast Casserole Recipes

Since Shelley asked so sweetly what I was going to put in my breakfast casserole for Christmas morning, I thought I'd share the recipes that I'm trying to choose between. I have no idea where I pulled these recipes from; two I've tried before and one I haven't. Maybe you can help me pick one!

I've tried both #1 and #2, and both were really good, but I haven't tried #3.

So what do you think? Should I serve recipe #1, #2, or #3?

  2. I've had 1 and 2 also but not 3. I love both the 2 I've tried, depends on whether you want something sweet or not. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

  3. They all sound declicious, but I think I would go for #1. I think because I have such a sweet tooth. :-)

    I might try that one myself. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  4. Thanks Pam for posting these! Now you got me thinking..... I can't decide between #1 or #2. #3 sounds good but bacon hasn't been my friend lately. (It's amazing as I get older - certain foods have become my enemies!)
