I swear now that summer hits my kids are hungrier and  . . . . pickier than ever! Do you know how hard it is to feed picky hungry children? It’s like they are whining and screaming at you for a snack or lunch or breakfast or snlufast (snack + lunch + breakfast, duh), and they want NOTHING that you are offering them, but they just become hungrier and whiner with each suggestion you give them!

In a blue casserole dish, the Mac N' Cheese Breakfast Casserole has chunks of sausage, Mac and Cheese, eggs, and sliced red peppers.

I’m sure it has to do with the fact that they are playing a lot more and they are just HERE a lot more, but I am having to feed them so much more than I did during the school year. And frankly, we are only in June and I am SCRAPING the bottom of the barrel people! So I am kind of on a quest to find new meals that the kids will love . . . bonus points if it is balanced (protein, veggies, carbs), and it is easy to make.

You guys, this Mac N Cheese Breakfast Casserole has ALL of those! So basically it is the greatest. Plus, my kids are ALWAYS on board for Horizon Mac N Cheese. They love it and they would happily eat it for all. the. meals. This has two boxes of Horizon Mac N Cheese, some sautéed veggies, some eggs, and some breakfast sausage. It is full of flavor, easy to make, and so delicious!

Plus. You guys. It’s Mac N Cheese. For Breakfast.
