Are you looking for a casserole that would be perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and even dinner? Look no further! Kevin’s “Anytime Ranchero Casserole” fits the bill. Serve it with a side of fruit, and you have an ideal meal. It’s a first-rate breakfast to serve to company; a supreme casserole to carry to a Sunday brunch; and a great dinner for the working mom to make for her family; hence, the name “Anytime Ranchero Casserole.” For breakfast and brunch, prepare it the night before, let it set overnight in the refrigerator, and bake it in the morning. For an evening meal, cook the sausage mixture the night before, assemble it in the morning, let it set in the refrigerator all day, and then bake it when you get home from work. Voila, the perfect casserole! This recipe is Kevin’s version of “Spicy Huevos Rancheros Casserole” from Deen Bros Family Holidays, 2011 ed.
