Breakfast Casserole for Champions

In April is when a lot of 5Ks and half marathons kick off. It seems like almost every Sunday starting in mid April there is some 5K or half marathon benefiting some worthwhile cause. I am an avid runner - running between 45-65 miles a week, I therefore can appreciate any good run. Before a run you want to have something light - small bowl of oatmeal and some fruit. When you run you don't want anything too heavy in your stomach. However after the race - depending on far you've run you will want to replenish your stomach with something tasty and healthy. This is my Breakfast Casserole for Champions. It's a breakfast dish that is perfect for runners. It will leave you feeling satisfied but not too satisfied where you feel like you just undid your whole run and all the calories and fat you burned.

1/2 cup of chopped red onions
