Happy Halloween! We had a fantastic night last night participating in an event at the zoo. The community comes together to decorate pumpkins, pass out candy and even dress in costumes to make the entire place feel spooky. It’s a lot of fun and I look forward to going every year.
So what do you guys have planned for tonight? Are you headed out to a costume party or passing out candy to the kids in the neighborhood? Maybe you’ll have all the lights turned out and will be snuggled in bed reading a good book by moonlight.
If your kids are like my niece and nephews they’re going to be so excited about their candy stash they probably won’t go to sleep at a reasonable hour. This means you’re going to need an easy breakfast menu for Saturday morning and something that you can make ahead. Good news, I have one for you.
Breakfast Sandwiches on Biscuits
Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole
The breakfast sandwiches are super easy. In between the top and bottom of this biscuit is an egg and a piece of veggie bacon but you could also use real bacon, turkey bacon and an egg substitute product like Egg Beaters.
The recipe for the Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole my Mom makes each year is just as easy.
1 (30 ounce) package of frozen hash browns thawed
1 (16 ounce) bag of shredded, sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
1 (10 ½ ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1 (8 ounce) container of sour cream
½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
¾ cup chicken broth
Instructions the night before:
In a large bowl, combine hash browns, 2 cups Cheddar cheese, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix ingredients well.
Pour chicken broth over hash brown mixture. Stir to combine.
Spoon mixture into 13” x 9” baking dish. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
Instructions the day of:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Allow dish to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Cook covered for 45 minutes.
Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 2 cups Cheddar cheese.

Whether you’re dealing with a sugar high Friday night or a party hangover Saturday morning, I hope you have a safe and Happy Halloween!
