Delicious Easy Egg Breakfast

This one-pan breakfast is perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner.

It's wonderful to be able to have the whole entire breakfast in one pan.

Adding anything to the beaten egg mixture bakes up into a delicious style pizza cheesy sauce quiche.

Plus clean-up is a breeze if you use a disposable pan and I always do it on the weekends especially if we have sleepover guests I get to spend more time enjoying my company.

Of course, if you prefer to have another side dish you can always try our homemade Pork breakfast Sausages they're fast and easy to make with ground pork.
