Shark Snacks: Breakfast Casserole
OXFORD, Miss. — While I typically love afternoon and/or night games best, there is something to be said for morning games a.k.a. “breakfast games.” An 11 a.m. kickoff is the perfect excuse to indulge in Bloody Marys and breakfast foods, which I love.
This week’s recipe is for a savory, filling breakfast casserole. Let’s get back on the right track and beat Liberty on Saturday!!!
This recipe is by Karl Worley of Nashville and was recently featured in Garden and Gun magazine. I recently made it for supper, and it was a huge hit in our house!
