Bakin’ With Bacon and Teddy

Standard

HAPPY ALMOST HOWLOWEEN!

Hope everyone is ready for a little spooky fun tomorrow night – with luck there will be ghosts and goblins out in our neighborhood for a change as last year nobody did anything but wish things were different.     This year things ARE different.    YAY!     So this would be a great “waker-upper” breakfast casserole the morning AFTER Halloween OR it might be a great way to start the BIG DAY (Halloween) out.   Plenty of energy for kids who are already so energized about wearing a costume and Trick or Treating that this might just send them over the top EARLIER in the day!!    Either way – it’s a yummy casserole that contains our favorite thing – BACON.

Well I probably don’t need to tell you that this is really absolutely delicious and whether you make it for Halloween or ANY other day it’s very good and makes wonderful leftovers too.    Just reheat and EAT!

Have a wonderful Halloween if you are celebrating it and if you aren’t – GO OUT TO DINNER!
