If you are like me, you can never have too many casserole recipes. And this one is packed with veggies, cheese , bacon and quinoa. I’m in heaven.
With three busy kids, I need to have lots of make-ahead-meals in my rotation. This casserole can be prepared the night before, or in the morning and then placed in the oven later. You can easily omit the bacon if you want to keep this vegetarian, but why would you do something like that? 😉 Make sure you choose quality center cut, low sodium, nitrate and nitrite free bacon. It’s important! It tastes just as good as the kind that is filled with all of those nasty chemicals. Pinky swear.

This recipe only has 5 ingredients! Well 6 if you count the water! 😉
I mean, let’s be honest, cheese + bacon is a match made in heaven. Add some quinoa and spinach for some nutrition and this dish is just about as perfect as it gets. All three of the kiddies liked it too (which rarely happens!)
I hope you enjoy it! Come back and let me know. 🙂
