It's Brunch Time with Velveeta®-Salsa Brunch Bake + {a giveaway}

This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.

So as some of you may already know, I'm not exactly a morning person. By that I mean, I'm a bit like Anna (from Frozen) on coronation day or worse... I'm groggy, don't really know what's going on, and definitely don't feel like cooking a complicated breakfast recipe first thing in the morning. So when hubby surprised me with plans to have friends over for brunch this weekend, I wasn't sure what was on the menu but knew I had to come up with a quick, delicious recipe pronto.

I panicked, jumped online, and found the Kraft Food Hub. In a hurry, with my mind racing I began browsing through all the delicious meal ideas and found this VELVEETA®-Salsa Brunch Bake recipe and knew this was the dish to serve at our impromptu brunch.


Cheesy egg goodness with a large dose of salsa, peppers, onions - the perfect mixture of wholesome ingredients to leave you feeling full and happy. What else could brunch guests ask for?

After only 20 minutes of prep time, I placed this tasty looking dish in the oven for 40 minutes. This left me with just the right amount of time to put myself together and get the kitchen cleaned up. Hubby was so surprised when he came downstairs and noticed my hair was done, my make up was on, and brunch was baking in the oven. I felt a bit like the perfect homemaker waiting patiently for my friends to arrive, which happens pretty much... uhhhhhmmm, never. It made for a peaceful and relaxed morning, which was a great way to start our day.

As my friends arrived, I pulled this beauty out of the oven and I'm not going to lie - I was overjoyed! I've never claimed to be an ultimate chef but this dish fooled my friends into thinking I am. Are you in a panic trying to find something to serve up to your friends for brunch as well? Maybe you are trying to find something different to make for a family breakfast gathering or possibly looking for a recipe to satisfy your breakfast for dinner craving? This recipe is the answer...
