Pimento Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Pimento Cheese Breakfast Casserole - a piece of breakfast casserole on a white plate, topped with a dolip of sour cream and sliced green onions - words on the upper right saying pimento cheese breakfast casserole.jpgBreakfast casseroles are incredibly handy for feeding a crowd. There’s no need to juggle plates and pans; people can just help themselves whenever they come down to breakfast. And when everyone’s eaten, there’s only one dish to wash.

Over the years, I’ve built up a whole stack of breakfast recipes. Most of them combine typical breakfast foods like eggs, potatoes, and bacon, but with a new twist each time. And my latest twist is – pimentos!

These tasty little pickled peppers give everything a Southwestern flair. I recently used them in a Pimento Cheese Dip, and I realized that some version of this would actually go great with the classic ham-eggs-and-potatoes combo.side picture of baked breakfast casserole

So I took one of my standard breakfast casserole ideas and started tinkering. A jar of pimentos, some chopped scallions, a container of sour cream, and a block of cream cheese to make it extra creamy and rich. Plus a bit of Worcestershire and just a wee bit of cayenne pepper to give it a touch of heat.
