Egg casseroles are such a flexible choice as a staple on your meal plans, because you can vary the ingredients to make them compatible for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner! This southwestern egg casserole would probably work anytime!   I’ve made lots of different quiche and egg casserole recipes, and this one was so light and had a  really nice texture and flavor. My “connoisseur” husband thoroughly enjoyed it and said so many times!
