the inspiration behind this hashbrown and chorizo breakfast bake
In general, I hate meal planning. I really dislike being forced to eat the same thing every day – by day 4, I’m so over it, and really more likely to go crazy and spend money I don’t need to spend on a meal out because I resent what I made. I’m super mature like that… sabotaging my own meal prepping. I do like to make ahead breakfasts though, and in order for me to not bore myself – it has to be actually delicious and keep its flavors big as the days go on. When I found this sausage/potato breakfast casserole on 40 Aprons, I knew it would be good – I played with it and adapted it to be this recipe, to lean into chorizo because I love spicy chorizo.
