Brunch, that delightful meal somewhere between breakfast and lunch time. It’s my personal favorite because I am not a morning person. Weekdays, I live on coffee until the brunching hour and weekends, well, I sleep until the brunching hour, when the child permits, of course.

To add to its charm, the food items centered around brunch can run the gamete between traditional breakfast items of eggs and pancakes, to lunching options like meat sandwiches and other savory items. Thus who needs to pick to one meal type.Greek Inspired Breakfast Casserole ~ Brunch recipes don't have to be hard. This simple breakfast casserole is elevated with Greek inspired ingredients like feta cheese, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes ~ The Complete Savorist by Michelle De La Cerda Brunch became a thing towards the end of the 19th century in England, born from the British upper class. Wealthy families would give their servants a day off on Sunday’s after having them prepare a buffet style meal that they could nosh on all day.

Today, brunch is still a popular meal on weekends, as people might want sleep a little longer (like me), but it is also a meal that brings families and friends together, almost in a celebratory fashion.

The fact that Simply Potatoes® are made with real ingredients and are so easy to prepare makes them a go-to for me when making breakfast or brunch items, especially since they are such a versatile ingredient.Greek Inspired Breakfast Casserole ~ Brunch recipes don't have to be hard.

Easy Brunch Idea

I made a Greek Inspired Breakfast Casserole, using fresh farm eggs, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns (i.e. shredded potatoes), spinach, oregano, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta cheese. This dish was hearty enough for meat-eaters and satisfying to egg-eating vegetarians.

Plus, this brunch dish makes getting my daughter to eat her veggies a bit easier (although I do turn it upside so they’re on the bottom–Hey, whatever trickery works, use it).Greek Inspired Breakfast Casserole ~ Brunch recipes don't have to be hard.

    We barbecue a lot in the summer months, and potato salad is one of my favorite side dished. They have a recipe for cheddar and bacon potato salad that looks so good that it could be the main course.
