Egg casseroles are super easy to make and great for breakfast (or even dinner) and this pepperoni pizza themed casserole of one of my favourites! The basics behind the egg casserole is the mixture of egg and dairy that sets when baked and I like to go with cottage cheese for the dairy in mine. Other than the eggs and cottage cheese there is mozzarella, pepperoni, sliced mushrooms, sliced olives and a pinch of oregano, half of which are mixed into the eggs and the rest is sprinkled on top, like a pizza. After baking I like to serve this pepperoni pizza egg casserole topped with some warm pizza sauce and any leftovers store well in the fridge for quick breakfasts the next day!
