Hello! Well on Sunday this week we had this delicious casserole for breakfast with some baked cinnamon apples as a side dish. We have been re-heating this dish and having it for lunch or brunch for the rest of this week.
The thing I always love about having leftovers is that the flavor soaks in even more and also that I am happiest when I don’t have to cook all of the time for every meal I eat. I can tell you that it is very filling and I am not so hungry the entire day. So I can have a light dinner and that’s it. So don’t be afraid of cooking with the leftover bacon drippings and the olive oil. The bacon drippings give it so much of a more smoked and delicious flavor.
