Cheesy Bacon Croissant Casserole

Trevor works with a sweet girl named Laurie and one day, she asked Trevor for a suggestion for an Easter Brunch casserole or quiche. Well, I knew it had to be decadent and had just the recipe for her! It has cheese, bacon and croissants – it’s super decadent and absolutely perfect for any Sunday brunch, including Easter brunch!

This is the kind of casserole you want to have a big pot of tea with and some greens on the side. It’s absolutely delicious, light, but also filling and full of flavor.

I hope you enjoy this one, Laurie!
