I’m so excited to share this delicious loaded baked potato inspired breakfast casserole with you today as part of a sponsored partnership with Shamrock Farms. It’s a tasty and hearty way to start the day! Back-to-school season is almost upon us! And, one of the things I try to do for school prep is doing some meal planning and make ahead meals! Those back-to-school mornings can get crazy! So, I find that it’s helpful if I spend some time on the weekend doing some make ahead meals for the week. One dish that works great for this is breakfast casseroles. You can make it up on Sunday and then have a hearty option throughout the week! So this dish is perfect for back-to-school time! Not only is it easy to make it ahead and have it to serve throughout the week, but it’s power packed with ingredients to help the kids stay full until lunch. Everyone in the family loves it! The loaded baked potato breakfast casserole is a fun twist on a classic, favorite dinner idea! At our house, we typically serve up baked potatoes topped with ham, broccoli, cheese, sour cream, and maybe a few green onions or chives! This breakfast casserole has the potatoes, all those tasty toppings, plus eggs to make it a breakfast casserole! The result is tasty breakfast dish! You’ll see that there’s one bonus ingredient, cottage cheese, to make it cheesier and give a nice protein boost (since a single serving has up to 13 grams of protein)! We used cottage cheese and sour cream from Shamrock Farms. We love using Shamrock Farms products as they’re made with with pure, wholesome milk containing no added growth hormones. They’re a local company for us (Arizona family-owned) and we love supporting local! You can even take a tour of their working dairy farm here (during October – May). So, we combined potatoes with cottage cheese, sour cream, and our additional baked potato “fixings”, added eggs, and have one delicious breakfast!
Here’s the easy recipe:
