This dish was fantastic! If you’re having company over for breakfast or brunch, this casserole is the one to make. It can be prepared the day before, cutting down on prep time in the morning. It has everything in it, and we really enjoyed it topped with some salsa.

- Melt margarine and place in the bottom of 9″ by 13″ baking pan.
- Spread potatoes (still frozen is okay) in bottom of the pan.
- Sprinkle chopped vegetables over potatoes.
