Lea VaughnWe made this a number of times on Christmas eve for our Christmas morning brunch.  It’s always fun to get everyone in the kitchen mixing and preparing late that night.  Of, course we are usually so tired, and really just want to go to bed. But come morning, it is so nice to be able to pop everything in the oven, and then take a break from opening gifts and sit down to a great meal.  We always have the Good Potato Casserole, and of course, the Christmas Morning Coffee Cake, too!   This Egg Casserole recipe was originally from Kay Thistlethwaite, my good friend from Chillicothe, MO.
