After Thanksgiving Breakfast Bake

Breakfast bakes are amazing any time of year and any time of day! Delicious, wholesome and they fill your heart and soul! I happened to have some leftover biscuits and they were awesome but what really makes this dish is the potatoes on the bottom. Cheesy and tender!

One of my favorites is breakfast bakes! It’s a good way to use up leftover ham, biscuits and scalloped potatoes!
