breakfast casserole 5Holiday season is a crazy season, and when you are busy preparing great dinners and desserts, in the morning you wake up so tired and compromise breakfast, but not any more. This breakfast casserole is our favorite since it can be prepared a night before and all you have to do is pop it in the oven the next morning, also, and this is the best part, it tastes and smells like pizza, I’m not kidding!

Arla cheeses are naturally good from farm to fridge. The cheese is free of added hormones and preservatives, and crafted with quality, natural ingredients in an environmentally friendly way.
