Sharing is caring!

One day over the summer I unexpectedly was stranded with no car and had nothing prepared for dinner.  My refrigerator was kinda bare and I was in a serious pinch. I literally threw a bunch of items together from my kitchen and tried to pull something together… 

Here it is, a dish born out of sheer necessity to eat I present my Mexican-Italian Egg Casserole.  

Or as I call it my “Mexi-ki-talian Casserole” (I’m not so good with the phonetics but you get the idea.)

It’s not a “Top Chef” recipe or anything but it sure is a tasty fusion of Italian and Mexican cheeses, eggs, hash brown potatoes and sweet Italian sausage.

As a side note: you could go meatless with this by eliminating the sausage.
