It's spicy in the Garden today!

I love when a recipe pops into my head and it's a success. One where I don't have to make it several times before I can post it. This is one that I actually found myself laying awake thinking of how to make it. This is going to be great when you want a breakfast but you do not want to prepare it that morning. Prepare most of it the night before and it's ready to pop in the oven in the morning.

Spicy Breakfast Casserole 4 servings
Prepare first:
**Homemade Salsa (I forgot to take the pictures before we ate, so this is in the pan after)
2 Tomatoes chopped (seeded)
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup Green Bell pepper
1/4 cup Red Bell pepper
2 Jalapeno's (chopped, seeds optional)
Cilantro (if you can find fresh sprinkle some in)
A couple of dashes of salt and pepper

Begin casserole:

Layer the following in order, in a pan sprayed with oil.
6 russet potatoes in cubes
Homemade salsa **
4 strips of bacon
1/4 lb hot ground sausage crumbled
1/4 cup sliced olives
Cover with aluminum foil. Bake on 400 for 40 minutes (depending on your oven).
Remove foil add evenly over the top:
5 whipped eggs - add a couple of dashes of salt and paper
Then sprinkle 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese.
Back another 30 minutes. Serve with toast or tortillas. It pairs well with a white sparkling wine or a Riesling.

It is so delicious, this is another one
that my husband said is a keeper. Enjoy!
