A breakfast for family could sound overwhelming, especially if yours is bigger than average. But this recipe needs very little work from you. With a lot of store-bought help, you only need to assemble everything together the night before. Then, pop it into the oven in the morning. There, you get a big flavorful breakfast casserole to feed a crowd.

This salsa breakfast casserole recipe taught me a great, big life lesson. "Never admit failure until you accept it as such." (By Napoleon Hill) I know, I know....I sound too serious.
I nail most of my recipes in the first or second attempt. It is very rare to take more than 4 or 5 trials. Well, this casserole recipe is one of those rare ones.
How did I know? Just looking back to all the pics I took that I thought every time, "I think I got it this time", it has been a stretch of 3 years to get this recipe to exactly the way it is now.
How come it took so long? Well …for a person like me that don’t throw any food into the garbage, it took forever to finish the whole batch of casserole, especially if you are not satisfied with the result.
I got to say that the ingredients marry together so nicely that the house smelled divine. While it was in the oven, my son said, "It smell like pizza." To complement this casserole, best is to pair it with Denny’s Mango Smoothie or lemonade.
This salsa breakfast casserole is very similar to my other breakfast recipe, English Muffin Breakfast Casserole. If you like something with milder flavor, that may be the one you want to try.
Once, I cooked both of these casseroles at the same time. Because they have the same cook time in the oven, everything was done in one shot. Next, everything was done in one shot and I fed a big crowd. Talking about a breakfast for family, huh? Bet everybody will be impressed by what you serve. I hope you will enjoy both.
