Quick and easy, this  Bubble Up Denver Breakfast Bake assembles in minutes for a hearty and delicious brunch recipe.

It’s #BrunchWeek!!  If y’all haven’t heard of Brunch Week, then you’re truly missing out!!  It’s only the BEST brunch event in the blogosphere!  Seriously.  It’s over 150 recipes for all your brunch needs!  From drinks, to nibbles, to main dish brunch recipes #BrunchWeek has all your needs for your next brunch.

Terri, from Love and Confections, is the host of this event.  She has round up some awesome bloggers and amazing sponsors for #BrunchWeek!  I am truly honored to be able to participate in this event.  It’s truly an epic event.

Now, I have a confession to make.  I have never made a bubble up anything.  Seriously.  I know they’ve been around for almost a decade or more and I honestly SHOULD have made something like this, but I haven’t.  Until now.

I see the bubble up recipes spanning across breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.  I see them all the time on Plain Chicken.  They look so deliciously good!  But, for whatever reason, I’ve never actually made one.  That is, until now.  And can I just say, I have no idea what took me so long, but I will definitely be making more of these in the future!!

If you have never made anything bubble up ever, you really should.  They’re super easy, delicious, and not expensive at all to make.  This Bubble Up Denver Breakfast Bake was made with some cheese, a can of biscuits, some veggies and some eggs.  The most expensive item being the biscuits, I think.  Or maybe it would be the cheese.  Either way, you’re look at less than $10 for a meal for 6.  And a delicious meal at that!!

When I want a more than one serving, I know that it’s a good meal.  Honestly, when the hubs has more than one serving, then it’s definitely a good meal!!  I wanted just a bite more of the delicious biscuit topping; just one more bite of the ham, egg, and cheese goodness that is this bubble up recipe.  It’s just that good.

I know that part of the amazing flavor of this Bubble Up Denver Breakfast Bake is due to the creamy, delicious flavor of the Cabot cheese.  I have LOVED Cabot cheese since my sister lived in Vermont.  We used to buy 5 pound blocks of it there, bring it home, and freezer it to savor it until we trekked up to VT to visit her again.  She doesn’t live there anymore, so I have to be content with what flavors I can get at my local grocery store.

Cabot was kind enough to send is a TON of cheese!  Almost 5 or 6 pounds, I think?  There was a delicious sun-dried tomato basil that because part of delicious Tuscan, slow cooker dip sandwiches.  You’re just going to have to wait on that recipe.  It’s so good, I just eat it before I can photograph it.  There was THE BEST extra sharp cheddar, that you will see later.  Then there’s the chipotle cheddar that was part of tonight’s taco chicken dinner.  I received so many different flavors and levels of sharpness and age in the package I received.  I was in heaven!!

How could I not be?  I mean, hello?  Cheese??

And just look at that hearty Bubble Up Denver Breakfast Bake goodness on my plate, there.  The cheese tastes amazing with the slightly sweet ham and scrumptious eggs.  Then there’s the tender biscuits that float to the top while it bakes.  Mmmm.  I’m getting hungry and we just ate dinner!!

That’s the best part about this recipe!  It’s so easy.  The longest task was grating the cheese!  By hand, of course.  It comes together in no time flat.  While it’s baking you can kick your feet up and read my blog.  Or, do some dishes, if you’re like me.  And maybe mop the floor.  Because the drop dribbles water on the hardwood floor.  And leaves little, dried water drops on it.  Because she can’t reach the paper towels to clean up after herself.

Yeah.  That whole paragraph is just kind of weird.  Anyway, make sure you follow Cabot on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Google +, LinkedIn, and YouTube.  I know I am so I can find out about new flavor combinations, limited edition flavors, and fabulous recipes made with their amazing cheeses.

What’s your favorite flavor of Cabot cheese?  I’m LOVING the chipotle cheddar, the sun-dried tomato; heck!  All of them!! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win some of that delicious cheese!
