“This is a lighter, overnight casserole recipe that my mom sent me via email. She said it was pretty good (compared to a full-fat version) and I'm looking forward to trying it myself. :) It was originally titled "Southwestern Egg Casserole", but due to the addition of Feta cheese I felt it was more of a fusion recipe than strictly southwestern influenced. *Note: Prep time includes refrigeration time.”
