Without a doubt, one of my favorite dishes to serve during a brunch or breakfast is a good egg casserole.

It is also a very versatile dish and each person can make it its own by using different ingredients and creating many different combinations. Today I want to share with you an Egg, Potato, Bacon and Jalapeño Casserole. This dish has an ideal mix of flavors and textures, and is very easy to prepare. This makes it an ideal option when you don't have a lot of time to cook in the morning, but just enough time to enjoy a good breakfast with the family that will feed not only your bodies but also your souls. ¡Buen provecho!
